Bill Cunningham Thinks The Fashion World Is Out Of Touch

"I think the fashion world needs to come to grips with reality. The reality is you have the whole country electronically connected.

A First-Timer’s Experience At New York Fashion Week (In GIFs!)

While Frisky readers know me from my occasional “What Are We Wearing Today” posts when I was one of The Frisky’s marketing interns, I actually lived a double life this summer.

WTF: A Plastic Surgeon Staged A Runway Show Of His “Designs” At Fashion Week

As if fashion week weren't problematic enough, what with the parades of drastically thin models and shameful lack of racial diversity, now a plastic surgeon has set up a runway next to the tents at Lincoln Center to stage a show of his "designs," AKA cosmetic surgery patients, AKA human beings.

Model Inner Monologue: Dude, Where’s My Bra?

Many fashion week runway shows are based on some kind of abstract concept or even a dream the designer had. Sophie Theallet's runway show seems to be based on a recurring dream of mine where I go out in public in a sheer shirt and forget to wear a bra. Oops!

Fashion Week Poll: Wanna Get Wild?

Okay, it's official. Diane von Furstenberg has had the very first NYFW collection where I've loved EVERY single piece. Maybe it's because I'm super into animal prints right now or because the radio has been playing Katy Perry's "Roar" every five fucking seconds, but DVF's safari-themed pieces are just what the doctor ordered. "What I'm…
