Time to give credit where credit is due: while the rest of New York City hid indoors during Blizzard Nemo, the fashion industry went forward with Fashion Week as planned. The tents have never seen so many pairs of Sorel boots! Let’s see what designers Christian Siriano, Mara Hoffman, Jason Wu, Jill Stuart, rag & bone, and Rebecca Minkoff sent down the runway for Fall 2013. Keep reading »

Too bad nobody banned her from the catwalk before she may or may not have butchered the house of Ungaro. La Lohan has reportedly been banned from Jill Stuart’s New York Fashion Week show after being labeled a “brand damager.” Apparently, Lindz is no longer worth the (possibly bad?) press she brings to an appearance.

Just check out the look sported by Anne Hathaway!
