Poll: Would You Wear This Hat?

At yesterday’s Diane Von Furstenberg fashion show, the models wore knit hats loaded with pom-poms. Would you wear one? Keep reading »

Ashley Dupre And Kelly Cutrone Are A Match Made In Reality TV Heaven

Who sits in the front row at a fashion show is a big deal. It demonstrates to everyone what kind of people the designer appeals to in addition to what big names support the label (however, a lot of times designers pay celebs to stud the front row). At this season’s New York Fashion Week, the front rows have been a little lackluster, with fewer companies shelling out for starlets to attend since money is tight these days. That doesn’t mean, however, that wannabes aren’t sneaking in. At Friday’s Yigal Azrouël show, former callgirl Ashley Dupre found a spot in the front row, and she wasn’t even invited. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Backstage Is Where The Magic Happens

This morning, I got up before sunrise and hoofed it from Brooklyn to the New York Public Library, where the women who walked in The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection were getting primped and pampered before the show. Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin, in a velour Juicy tracksuit, typed away on her phone while getting her hair curled. Susan Lucci looked like a pro getting her smoky eyes put on (damn does she look good for 61). Hairstylists combed and curled extensions still waiting to be attached to heads. Manicurists with tool belts ran around giving manis and pedis — a favorite color was the almost-nude Negligee. A woman shouted “Can I get an E.T.A. on Katie Couric?” into her headset. It was like opening night of my high school play, but with famous people. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Barbie Gets Her Close-Up

New York Fashion Week kicked off this morning in the tents at Bryant Park. Inside the venue, there are Barbies everywhere — and not just the tall, thin, glamorous editors and buyers attending the shows. There’s a whole display that spells out “Barbie” in Barbies, each letter with a different doll. After the jump, more photos of the copious amount of Barbies in the tents (she is, after all, an official sponsor of Fashion Week). Keep reading »

Look Like Barbie! At Least In The Face

Barbie gets everything. Really, it’s not fair. Sure, it’s her 50th birthday this year, but, jeez, she is getting the coolest presents! Besides a fashion show during New York Fashion week and a customized pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, Barbie also gets a collection of makeup by Stila. The limited edition series features four “Decades of Beauty” cans: #1 Ponytail Barbie from 1959, Malibu Barbie from 1971, Foxy Doll from 1980, and Jewel Doll from 2000. Stila also will launch a version of its talking palette with tips on how to get the “Barbie look.” The products will be at Sephora starting next month, though neither will make your boobs as big, your boyfriend as coiffed, or your house as pink as Barbie’s. Sigh. [WWD] Keep reading »

Christian Louboutin To Make Barbie Shoes For Her 50th Birthday

As you know, Barbie’s turning 50 next year, but don’t worry, she isn’t going to start wearing orthopedic shoes any time soon. Christian Louboutin is designing a pair of pumps in Barbie Pantone 219 Pink that will make their debut at the Mattel runway show during February’s fashion week in New York. “I guess I always had a little ‘girlie side’ who liked Barbie,” Louboutin said. “Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes.” Wouldn’t it be cool if he made the soles pink instead of his signature red?

Barbie’s Big Birthday

Barbie is turning 50 next year (doesn’t she look good for her age?), and her birthday celebration is going to be huge. She’s getting a line of beauty products, collaborating with Vera Wang on a wedding dress and Jeremy Scott on a capsule collection, and getting her own show at New York Fashion Week in February. For the show, 50 designers will produce life-sized outfits inspired by the doll — oh, to be a style icon. We’re curious whether the models who will walk in Barbie’s fashion show will all resemble her. If so, they’re going to have a hard time finding anyone, because even models don’t have her kind of proportions. Check out Barbie’s many, many, many looks over the years, after the jump… Keep reading »

Rewind: New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week ended on Friday after seven days of sometimes amazing — and sometimes hideous — clothes, a gazillion models, gallons of makeup, and a fleet of shiny black Town Cars filled with pretty young things. In case you were under a rock last week, here’s how it all went down…

  • J.Lo skipped out on judging the Project Runway shows. Tim Gunn made it work and filled in for her. We think his commentary will be better anyway.
  • People’s Revolution founder Kelly Cutrone vlogged for NYMag.com, showing us that she’s the same awesome, crazy fashion character in real life as on The Hills.
  • Victoria Beckham got her hair cut. Let the locks lemmings follow.

    Fashion Week: Where Are The Black Models?

    The lack of black models on fashion runways and in ad campaigns has become a persistent issue in the fashion industry. The issue was most recently highlighted by Vogue Italia’s “Black Issue,” which featured only black models on its pages. Some, including editor Amelia, saw the magazine as a gimmick, but it nonetheless got people talking about the issue of race in fashion. Unfortunately, all they did was talk. Keep reading »
