Taylor Momsen Cleans Up Nicely!

Well isn’t this a nice change now. Taylor Momsen wearing something other than undergarments and bloody, ripped fishnet stockings with thigh-high boots that could be used as arsenal in their own rights. And doesn’t she just look lovely?
Taylor here was photographed at New York’s Fashion week, where she kept the company of Stacy Keibler, Bar Refaeli, and other prolific…

Joseph Altuzarra’s (Somewhat) Surprising Date To The Met Ball

Will we ever hear the end of Lana del Rey? She’s been suspiciously absent from Fashion Week, and I thought for sure that her “Saturday Night Live” performance would finish the singer off for good, but the past few weeks have proven me wrong: not only has she landed a Vogue UK cover, but there&#8217…

Model Inner Monologue: Melts In Your Mouth, Not On The Runway

I’m not sure how this outfit from the Megla M runway show is supposed to work in real life (being able to move your arms is kind of important), but if all else fails, it could easily be repurposed as a Halloween costume.

Miu Miu Releases 46 Unique Bags For Fashion Weeks

It’s February already? Fashion weeks are fast approaching, that’s for sure, and New York is the first up as always, with shows beginning on Thursday. Regretfully, one brand us Manhattanites don’t usually hear much from is Miu Miu, which shows in Paris. This year, though, things are different. How different, you ask? Well, we still…

Watch Tavi Pack For Fashion Week

It’s not easy being a 15-year-old wunderkind. Aside from the basic responsibilities of going to high school, blogger Tavi Gevinson also runs her own magazine — Rookie Mag — and covers Fashion Week. After the jump, we catch up with her as she prepares to head from her home in Chicago to New York for…

A History Of Sex And Fashion

New York Fashion Week begins today, and we can’t wait to see what memorable moments and fresh looks will come out of this season’s showing. And while the fashion industry’s history is full of important landmarks, it seems the ones that stand out the most have to do with controversy, pushing boundaries, and sex. I…

Fashion Week Internationale Visits Nigeria

Vice’s “Fashion Week Internationale” has been a fascinating series and its final installment — in Nigeria — is perhaps the most striking. The episode conflates the country’s fashion week with Nigeria’s recent anti-gay legislation and history of anti-gay sentiment. Even the country’s First Lady shows up, and notes that “I remember my hot pants used…

12 High-Fashion Nipple Moments At Paris Couture Week

The French are a kinky bunch of folks that don’t really have the kind of hangups about nakedness that, say, Americans do. So it should be expected that a nip slip at Paris Couture Week is not only expected, but built right into the garments themselves. See, couture clothing isn’t so much about covering the…

The Best Dressed At Haute Couture Week (Days 1 & 2)

We have now entered day two of the prestigious Paris Haute Couture Week, the spark that lights the fuse of fashion weeks to follow. Yesterday was Atelier Versace (for the first time since 2004!), Alexis Mabille, Christian Dior, and Giambattista Valli, among others. This morning, not one, but two Chanel shows took place, followed by…

13 Transgressive Looks From Thom Browne

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there. I was busy salivating over the Fall 2012 menswear collection from my favorite wackadoodle designer Thom Browne. Mr. Browne — he of the lobster claw arms from Spring 2012 — is famous for his transgressive take on fashion and the body. Browne plays with proportion and male archetype…

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mea…

5 Runway To Real Life Beauty Looks

Fashion begins on the runway. Once the seasonal collections are shown, the standard is set for labels everywhere, who work to emulate — but not copy — the hottest catwalk trends. The clothes we purchase from stores such as H&M, Zara, and Urban Outfitters all have one thing in common: they’re often loose interpretations of…

Full-Figured Fashion Week Tips The Scales

This year, as in every year, there was an absence of plus-sized women at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, which gave the organizers of Full-Figured Fashion two options: either lie down and take it, or fight back. They decided to fight back, and organized their own incredible Full-Figured Fashion Week, featuring a slew of fashion shows,…

This Is What Modeling Does To Your Feet

I hope you have digested lunch, as the photo above, which you no doubt can’t tear your eyes from, is a bit stomach-turning. This is what happens when you walk in ridiculously high heels in countless runway shows over the course of the various fashion weeks — your feet turn black and blue (and yellow!)…

7 Models Falling On The Runway

Hatfields vs. McCoys. Sox vs. Yankees. Sharks vs. Jets. People who laugh at models falling on runways vs. people who think laughing at someone else’s faceplant is cruel. Such distinctions either pull us humans apart or bring us together! I kinda have no opinion: I just think it’s bizarre that our culture praises adult women for…

Fashion Week Breakdown: The Wild Bunch

Fall fashion shows — highlighting Spring 2012 collections — continue on throughout Europe. And as they slowly wind down, we’ve noticed a bunch of designers who are truly pushing the boundaries of what Ready-to-Wear means. European designers like Ann Demeulemeester and Gareth Pugh aren’t staying safely within the confines of traditional sportswear, but instead are…
