Milan Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 1-6

The last of the big-name shows culminated last night after six days in Milan, with today’s events devoted to little-known up-and-coming Italian designers. Today marks the start of the most fashion-y fashion week of all: Paris! We’re summing up Milan with Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, Prada, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, and Giorgio Armani, after the jump…

The Best In London Fashion Week Street Style

For years now, the sidewalks outside of fashion week have been as heavily documented and critiqued as the clothes up on the runway. There’s a veritable industry now, of fashion bloggers, online personalities and charming crazies who now operate front and center when it comes to fashion week. And why not? Style trickles up a…

London Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 1-5

Spanning just five days, London Fashion Week is the shortest of the ready-to-wear fashion weeks. It’s also in many ways the most entertaining: the attendees, the street style, and most of all, the clothes on the runway are consistently lighter-hearted than New York and Milan’s more austere ambiance. Just take legendary designer Tom Ford, for…

Rudy The Fashion Dog Sniffs Out NYFW’s Most Stylish Shoes

There might be only one thing we love more than fashion, and that’s animals. So when Refinery 29 sent us this clip of very fashionable pup checking out the latest and greatest in footwear at New York Fashion Week, we felt like we’d hit the jackpot. Rudy speaks with a vaguely British accent and i…

Obsession-Worthy Barbed Wire Headbands At New York Fashion Week

Rodarte’s runway shows are known for being innovative with beauty — after all, they brought us those gorgeous gold scattered star hair clips, and last fall’s Australian Outback-inspired makeup had every fashion girl clamoring for “dirty” skin and nails for the first (and likely the last) time. This year’s standout look is decidedly more refined,…

This Week In Style: John Galliano Rumored To Replace Oscar De La Renta

Well, this is troubling: after Oscar de la Renta charitably allowed disgraced Dior designer John Galliano (who played a fun game of anti-Semitic dress-up just days ago) to have a hand in designing his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, rumors abound that this could be part of the process of priming Galliano to take over for de la Renta, 80,…

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 7 & 8

It’s always bittersweet when New York Fashion Week comes to a close. On one hand, editors and Fashion People citywide breathe a sigh of relief (not to mention regular people who just so happen to live near Lincoln Center); on the other hand, it significantly diminishes your chances of stealing a glimpse at Carine Roitfeld o…

Debate This: John Galliano Dressed Like A Hassid, Say What?

Julie: So Johnny Galliano, eh? THAT GUY.

Rachel: Old Johnny that scoundrel.

Julie: We haven’t really heard much from him. Then last week, Oscar de la Renta offered him a residency. And this week? He shows up at the Oscar de la Renta show dressed as a Hassidic Jew.

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 5 & 6

Amazingly, Fashion People were undeterred by the foot-plus of snow we received this weekend, and New York Fashion Week carried on as usual. Total champs — we certainly can’t say the same about our weekend, which we spent contained safely indoors in front of the television. This is just a small selection from the many,…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: amFAR New York Gala 2013

Each season, New York Fashion Week kicks off with the American Foundation for AIDS Research (better known as amfAR) Gala. This year’s party was a little bit different, because while the guest list always reads like a who’s who of fashion big shots, supermodels, and stylish starlets, that generally doesn’t include Lindsay Lohan. Hmmmmm. Check…

Watch The Runway Shows At New York Fashion Week From The Comfort Of Your Own Computer

Carine Roitfeld recently bemoaned the exclusivity of fashion shows, revealing her own opinion that young people who love fashion should be able to see it. (In fact, it’s this very conviction that drives her to take two spectators in with her each time she goes to see a show — so cute!) It’s true: you’ve…

Style Stealer: Leelee Sobieski’s Greyscale Layers

Leelee Sobieski has been in so many great films and one particularly outstanding TV miniseries adapted from one of my favorite books ever (ahem, “Les Liaisons dangereuses”). It’s crazy to think that the NYC native is only 29. Leelee took some time off from the industry the past few years after getting married and having…

Paris Haute Couture Week Spring 2013: Day 3

We’re jumping in halfway through Paris Couture Week, but better late than never, I always say! Fashion lovers go wild for couture week most of all: nothing gets our pulses racing quite like the promise of seeing the impeccably-cut, fantastical creations of the most extraordinary designers in the world marched down the runway for the…

If You Like Feet, Then You Might Like These Feet Shoes (But Only If You’re White)

Because fashion never puts a moratorium on being weirdly racially-charged (but not quite “racist”): French house Céline showed yesterday at Paris Fashion Week, and while the clothes were perfection (as Céline is wont to be), things got weird with the footwear, including some AstroTurf offerings and, um, these. They’re to die for, I know, but…

All The Weird Hats At Fashion Week

Now that Paris Fashion Week is winding down, we can reflect back on the weeks and weeks of runway shows, designer spotlights and trend forecasting. But before we close the chapter entirely on the Spring/Summer 2013 season, let’s take a look at some of the bizarre headwear that made its way down the runway thi…

The Best Boobs At Fashion Week (NSFW)

Another fall, another round of intense fashion weeks. Whether we’re talking Melbourne or Milan, one thing remains a constant — there are a lot of damn boobs on the runway. And sometimes they fall out of their shirts or stand at attention under sheer underthings. Here, we’ve captured the latest round of boobs on display…

Aila Wang Makes Other Street Style Stars Look Like Child’s Play

Spotted at New York Fashion Week: the inimitable Aila Wang, three-year-old niece of designer Alexander Wang and total future It girl. She’s only three, but Aila has her uncle’s trademark urban-chic on lock, not to mention a street style savvy that most aspiring fashionistas can only dream of. Nike kicks, black snakeskin, and a mini…

Where Authenticity In Street Style Dies, Shameless Corporate Promotion Lives

When the term “street style” was first coined, it was the domain of the unstudied, the unstaged, the stylist or editor or blogger wearing an outfit that she had purchased and put together herself. Candid street style at its heart and in its purpose was refreshingly free of the business element that defines much, if…
