As of today, Fashion Week is officially underway, but with the snow and cold temperatures, getting around in New York City is simply treacherous. This weather makes you want to sit on your couch in PJs and catch up on daytime television, doesn’t it? Thankfully, 12 designers (so far!) have plans to embrace the internet during Fashion Week and will livestream their shows online, which means not only is it possible to stay at home to see the new fashions, but for those whose invitation got lost in the mail, it’s still possible to attend. You can watch Marc Jacobs’ celeb-free show on his website, catch Rodarte and Alexander Wang thanks to ShowStudio, and preview the G-Star looks on their Facebook page. It’s fashion meets the tech world, and it’s much, much warmer in here. [My It Things] Keep reading »

Apparently the Gaga was given special exemption from the “boring celebrity” rule because (besides the fact that she is ANYTHING but boring) the diva was headlining the after party. As for Madge … she just showed up uninvited. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »

Fashionista brilliantly curated a list of the digits, and you might be surprised at how much–and how little–some celebs will donate their time for. Check out who rakes in the big bucks, after the jump. Keep reading »
