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 trends” are kind of moot: as beauty editor Cat Marnell at xoJane put it in her beautifully introspective piece on Fashion Week, “don’t you already sort of know what looks good on you?” Models, who look good in anything, including red eyeliner, whose faces are painted in a manner that complements the focal point, the clothes, should not dictate what makeup you decide to wear. You know what you like: stick to it. Sometimes, though, just as we scurry to replicate a red carpet makeup look we find covetable, and think would look good on us, there’s beauty on the runway that can work for you. If dark, dramatic eyes with a rebellious, middle-finger flair are your trademark, here are three tutorials for you to try.

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 orange-red lips down the runway at her own presentation? That’s right: one of the models from yesterday’s J. Crew show bore more than a passing resemblance to Jenna, though she insists it wasn’t intentional. I, for one, am totally in love with Lyons’ chic aesthetic, and I would gladly be her fashion lemming any day. Considering similar fashions were spotted on the Marc by Marc Jacobs runway as well, I’m definitely not the only one who worships at Jenna’s altar. What’s appealing about her approach is that, despite the covetable wardrobe and charmed life, it’s utterly accessible — you, too, can channel Jenna by making just a few simple alterations to your regular look.

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 Parker, raises money for — you guessed it — AIDS research, prevention, and education. This year’s reception honored the work of Roberto Cavalli. With this many fashion heavy-hitters in one place, there’s bound to be some serious outfit trauma, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the good far outweighed the bad. There were so many amazing looks last night, but there was also some bad, and then … the very, very meh. And yes, if you were wondering, Heidi Klum is still wearing her ring.

La Lohan is at it again, and for real this time, she is bumming me out. Earlier this week, we saw some Terry Richardson-shot photos of her with massively blown-out pupils and a wonky eye situation, and last night she was out and about for the New York Fashion Week amFAR Gala and … let’s just say she makes Courtney Love in her heroin-addled prime look like Kate Middleton. As a Lindsay fan from way back (weren’t we all?), I’ve always crossed my fingers that this once-beautiful, talented girl would pull it together, but I’m starting to think it’s time for me to let her go.

In Model-land, 25 Is Really, Really Old

In this first installment, Ziff talks to girls about age and modeling. Suffice to say, in this business, if you started at 14, you’re DOA at 25. [The Cut] Keep reading »
