It’s that time of year again! That is, time for the the human clothing hangers better known as models to strut down the catwalks of Lincoln Center in beautiful, expensive and sometimes absurd designer clothing, for the Fall 2014 runway shows. Each day, we’ll present to you a selection of noteworthy shows so that, even if you can’t ultimately afford what you see (uh, we can’t), you’ll be up to date on the coming trends. Or at least have plenty of outfits, makeup and hair looks to drool over and/or laugh at. Here’s what Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Vera Wang and more designed for Fall 2014… Keep reading »
Okay guys, quick quiz. Which one of these insults did Michael Kors not say during the first 10 seasons of “Project Runway”.

- “She looks like rigatoni ‘Mad Max’.”

This busted, ’90s-inspired, rhinestone-covered, I-could-probably-get something-comparable-for-$9.99-at-Capezio’s body suit by Michael Kors is priced at $5,450. That is all. [Yoox]
With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a little edgy and totally elegant. This right here, folks, is an iconic fashion moment. Check out another pic of Mrs. O’s amazing dress after the jump! Keep reading »
New York Fashion Week has begun, and while we’re still waiting for the big name shows that draw legions of designer-clad starlets, the first celeb sightings are starting to trickle in. Click through to check out some photos from the front row, including Heidi Klum’s plunging neckline, Hailee Steinfeld’s gorgeous green lace dress, and proof that Cory Kennedy still exists (and stay tuned for more front row pics next week!)…
Oh, to be famed supermodel and “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum. When you and I lose our luggage, we get stuck going to Target and buying discount pairs of underwear. When Heidi loses her luggage — or in this particular case, has her luggage stolen at JFK — Michael Kors comes to the rescue, messengering a new dress over to Heidi’s hotel room. And it’s a good thing, too — Heidi was set to appear at a special lunch at Hudson Hotel to shill her Wildlife jewelry collection, the third collection for the Home Shopping Network. At the lunch, Heidi confessed that she works on her jewelry designs on Saturday mornings (that’s exactly what we do, too). “I like to make things that stand out,” said Klum at the event. “I don’t like to make things that you’ve seen before.” [Racked]
“Why did the villain win? Why? I could not believe it. Gretchen’s talented, and she’s not a horrible person. But was she the winner of the season? I don’t think so. The ‘Project Runway’ designers are like my kids. I love them all. I will say I love some more than others. And there’s some I wish I’d left in a basket.”
— Tim Gunn is still blabbing that it was wack that backstabbing Gretchen Jones won over sweet little Mondo Guerra on the most recent season of “Project Runway.” I’m glad he agrees the uber-talented Mondo totally got the shaft.
After the jump, Tim talks some smack about Michael Kors, on whom he blames Gretchen’s puzzling win: Keep reading »
Dear Michael Kors,
When I go shopping, I tend to channel a raccoon—I’m instantly attracted to anything shiny, sparkly, or fishy.
This means that I have a closet full of sequined miniskirts and silver boleros and earrings shaped like salmon fillets. I’ll go to the store with every intention of purchasing simple black trousers, but within seconds I’ve been seduced by the flashy racks of ridiculous trend pieces and I end up buying gold lamé harem pants instead. I have a really hard time buying sensible clothes. Keep reading »
