NYFW Trend Forecast: White Out!

As New York Fashion Week slogs on, we’ve seen some commonalities emerge between designers. Besides all employing desperately skinny models, we’ve noticed other similarities between collections. Like white. It was everywhere on the runway this NYFW, in flowing dresses, in surprising suiting — and in inexplicable hat/dress combos (we’re looking at you, Prabal Gurung). Check…

Model Inner Monologue: Luxe Lizard

Can you imagine being this model? You show up at the Asher Levine show ready to show the world your incredible cheekbones, you watch all the other models get outfitted with cool sci-fi hats and belted trenchcoats, and then the stylist comes up to you with this giant eye-less lizard mask and is like, “Uummm,…

New York Fashion Week Day 3: Kate Spade, Charlotte Ronson, Prabal Gurung And More

Saturday marks the third day of New York Fashion Week — and featured shows from Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Prabal Gurung and tons of others. While we were less than excited about the offerings at Charlotte Ronson (sort of tepid florals in a muted shades), Cushnie et Ochs collection of white, magenta and blue dresse…

New York Fashion Week Day 2: Peter Som, Creatures Of The Wind, Thakoon & More!

Day 2 of New York Fashion Week rolls on. Today, there were new offerings from Thakoon, Richard Chai LOVE, Tadashi Shoji and tons of others. At Creatures of the Wind, the collection had a down home prairie vibe. While at Nicholas K, the clothes were reminiscent of a summer dessert storm. Are we sensing a…

Model Inner Monologue: Hazardous High Fashion

This model at the Duckie Brown Spring 2013 show bravely made his way down the runway in a garment that very much resembles a fresh fabric explosion. Thank goodness he seems to have escaped unscathed.

Caption This Photo: NZFW Goes To The Birds

New York Fashion Week has started, hot on the heels of the New Zealand shows. Beautiful, isolated New Zealand pushed out some unique talent — and some rather, um, creative displays for their work. Take this Kagi fashion show, where models are um, well, what are they doing? Tell us in the comments. Best answer…

New York Fashion Week Day 1: Rachel Comey, Lauren Moffat, BCBG & More!

New York Fashion Week is upon us (blergh). Which means more fashion, parties and skinny models with impossibly complex coffee orders in front of you in line at Starbucks. Truly, we love the fashion and the glamour of the shows, but the general hoopla around NYFW can be a bit mystifying/annoying. That said, we’re excited…

5 Things To Know About Azealia Banks

If I could go to one Fashion Week event this year, it wouldn’t be the Marc Jacobs show (yawn), or some party thrown by Terry Richardson (blech) — no, I’d want to go to SPIN and Refinery-29’s party tonight at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, sponsored by Virgin Mobile. Why? Oh, Azealia Banks is performing and

There Will Be A Doggie Fashion Show During NYFW

People love them some pet fashions, it’s a fact. What’s better than a dog dressed up in a raincoat? Nothing. Nothing, is the answer. So we are mega-stoked that former music publicist Sophie Miller has filled the very large void in our lives (and our hearts) with her new collection, Designs by Sophie — and

The Best Dressed At NYFW: The Attendees

This week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week came to a close. In many ways, our fashion future has been foretold — what we saw on runways this past week will directly influence what we wear next fall and winter, whether we purchase the actual designer ready to wear (fat chance) or H&M’s take on the trends. It&#8217…

NYFW Backstage Beauty: Dramatic Eyes

I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It’s not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason “runway beauty…

Seeing Double At NYFW: Jenna Lyons As Muse

Okay, the jig is up: the mastermind behind J. Crew’s consistent cool and bonafide style savant, Jenna Lyons, is fully aware that her look has become iconic. Why else would the creative director and president of the celebrated American company have sent a veritable mini-me boasting her own trademark groomed hair, thick dark-rimmed glasses, and…

We have no idea what creature was spotted on the neck of this model at the F/W 2012 Nicholas K show, but whatever it is, can’t be good. [Style]…

The Good, The Bad & The Meh At The 2012 AmfAR Gala

Last night was the eve of the official New York Fashion Week kickoff, and the American Foundation for AIDS Research’s Annual New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street was the place to see and be seen — that is, if you’re an A-list model, celebrity, entrepreneur, or fashionista. The yearly event, hosted by Sarah Jessica…
