Obsession-Worthy Barbed Wire Headbands At New York Fashion Week

Rodarte’s runway shows are known for being innovative with beauty — after all, they brought us those gorgeous gold scattered star hair clips, and last fall’s Australian Outback-inspired makeup had every fashion girl clamoring for “dirty” skin and nails for the first (and likely the last) time. This year’s standout look is decidedly more refined,…

NYFW Round Up–All The Sartorially-Inclined Action

Hard to believe, but New York Fashion Week has come and gone. We saw models, celebs and general mayhem flanking the runways, while designers served up rather staid designs. Still, there were some definite highs — we’re thinking Honor, Marc and Altuzarra, for starters. Want a quick overview of what you might have missed? Peruse…

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 7 & 8

It’s always bittersweet when New York Fashion Week comes to a close. On one hand, editors and Fashion People citywide breathe a sigh of relief (not to mention regular people who just so happen to live near Lincoln Center); on the other hand, it significantly diminishes your chances of stealing a glimpse at Carine Roitfeld o…

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 5 & 6

Amazingly, Fashion People were undeterred by the foot-plus of snow we received this weekend, and New York Fashion Week carried on as usual. Total champs — we certainly can’t say the same about our weekend, which we spent contained safely indoors in front of the television. This is just a small selection from the many,…

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Day 3

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 &am…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: amFAR New York Gala 2013

Each season, New York Fashion Week kicks off with the American Foundation for AIDS Research (better known as amfAR) Gala. This year’s party was a little bit different, because while the guest list always reads like a who’s who of fashion big shots, supermodels, and stylish starlets, that generally doesn’t include Lindsay Lohan. Hmmmmm. Check…

Watch The Runway Shows At New York Fashion Week From The Comfort Of Your Own Computer

Carine Roitfeld recently bemoaned the exclusivity of fashion shows, revealing her own opinion that young people who love fashion should be able to see it. (In fact, it’s this very conviction that drives her to take two spectators in with her each time she goes to see a show — so cute!) It’s true: you’ve…

Thom Browne Is Michelle Obama’s Inauguration Fave — And Ours Too

We’ve long been a fan of quirky, sort of out-there American designer Thom Browne, so it’s pretty great to see him get pop culture recognition — on the presidential inauguration stage, no less. The outrageous sportswear designer has been a fan of putting models dressed as lobsters on the runway in the past, but i…

Aila Wang Makes Other Street Style Stars Look Like Child’s Play

Spotted at New York Fashion Week: the inimitable Aila Wang, three-year-old niece of designer Alexander Wang and total future It girl. She’s only three, but Aila has her uncle’s trademark urban-chic on lock, not to mention a street style savvy that most aspiring fashionistas can only dream of. Nike kicks, black snakeskin, and a mini…

NYFW Trend Forecast: The Suit Stuff

Suits — so boring, I know. Which is why we were stoked to see so many new and creative iterations of suiting in the spring/summer shows at New York Fashion Week. Check out a few of our favorites after the jump!

NYFW Trend Forecast: Frisky Florals

Florals were everywhere this season but employed in a variety of ways. At Prabal Gurung, the flowers were bright and graphic, while Suno’s florals were muted and pale. And at Duro Olowu, the florals offered a cheery pop of color. Check out our gallery of some of our favorite floral looks and let us know…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Cuckoo For Cutouts

Cutouts are a simple way to add a little sex appeal to an outfit. Which is probably why they were so prominent in the spring/summer 2013 collections presented at New York Fashion Week. From body-sculpting slashes and patterns, to more random and spontaneous marks, whether you prefer a peekaboo style, or a more geometric ski…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Magnificent Maxis

At the risk of sounding a bit too “New York Times discovers dresses,” we’d like to point out that some of our favorite fashion moments this past NYFW were the maxi dresses and gowns. As is traditional, everyone from Prabal Gurung to Mara Hoffman to Monique Lhuillier created dramatic moments with long dresses. So we’ve picked a…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Leather, Lady

Leather is nothing new, but for spring/summer 2013, designers used it in innovative ways. From sewn leather trousers, to buttery leather dresses and colored denim in every hue, there was something for every leather lover at New York Fashion Week. Check out some of our faves above!

Is it over yet? After a week-plus of runway shows, street fashion, model makeup and more, New York Fashion Week is finally drawing to a close. To finish off the week, we’ve got collections from Proenza Schouler, Jil Sander Navy, Elizabeth and James, Marchesa, Anna Sui — plus Katie Holmes’ latest collection for Holmes and…

Trendspotting: 6 Brand-New Beauty Ideas From NYFW

When a designer strays outside the box of beauty stalwarts, it’s a refreshing change, given our steady diet of so-called “trends” — smoky eyes, red lips, dewy skin, and bold brows. These ubiquitous looks are beautiful and striking, but they’re also easy go-tos, which on principle renders them, well, kind of boring. But with each…

Model Inner Monologue: Sequin Nip Slip Guaranteed

Just when I thought New York Fashion Week was going to come and go without any designer sending a sequined, feathered, red-nippled bustier down the runway, The Blonds (who also designed the outfit for Drag Queen Barbie) come through for me. Phew, that was close.

Dress Porn: 21 Drop-Dead Gorgeous Gowns From New York Fashion Week

My favorite thing about fashion week is the craaaazy things designers parade down the runways in an effort to stand out, like bondage hula skirts and models with giant, eye-less lizard heads. My second favorite thing is looking at the season’s fresh crop of breathtakingly opulent gowns, and the Spring/Summer 2013 collections didn’t disappoint. Here…

New York Fashion Week Day 7: Rachel Roy, The Row, J. Crew And More!

Today, J. Crew showed its wares for next season, so you know Amelia was stoked. We swooned, on the other hand, for the new collection from Assembly, which has a real understated cool to it. The Row’s collection of oversized, flowy garments seemed to really reflect the Olsen twins’ personal style. And Rachel Roy’s collectio…

According To NYFW, Black Is The New Black For Next Summer

Spring and summer fashion is generally pretty predictable insofar as it is, well, summery — think airy, diaphanous fabrics in light, muted colors accented by eye-catching brights, and you’ve just about hit the nail on the head every time. As the S/S 2013 shows crop up, we get a good glimpse at what to expect…
