History was made at New York Fashion Week today: Jamie Brewer was the first model with Down syndrome to walk during the major style event.

10 NYFW Beauty Trends That Work In Real Life

We’ve seen the craziest beauty trends from New York Fashion Week, and now it’s time for the beauty looks you can actually wear.

Watch Fashion Week Spectators Lie Their Faces Off To Sound Hip

Jimmy Kimmel sent a camera crew to New York Fashion Week to ask people their opinions on made-up designers, and not one of them missed a beat in diving right into a lie about knowing all about Chandler Bing’s fashion line. Because the fashion world is borderline ridiculous, these unsuspecting folks also didn’t blink an eye…

Shop The NYFW Trend: Everything’s Coming Up Palm Prints!

One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel. From full-on palm trees to more abstract, close-up fronds, palm prints are a sophisticated alternative to regular ol’ florals. And you don’t have to wait until spring to wear them &#8212…

The Best Of NYFW: J. Crew Loosens Up


Nearly every day I’m wearing something on my person that came from J. Crew. I am a disciple; an unofficial, uncompensated walking advertisement; a diehard fan of their toothpick jeans, Capri flip-flops, Everly pumps and assorted overpriced sweatshirts that I refuse to buy unless they’re on sale. And come spring, I will no doubt…

Nicki Minaj Tried & Failed To Teach Models At Alexander Wang How To Twerk

Models are good at being gorgeous walking clothes hangers — and I’m sure they each have their own individual talents — but one thing they’re seemingly not so great at is twerking. Nicki Minaj dropped by the Alexander Wang show at New York Fashion Week and tried her best to teach the model…

The Best Of NYFW: Rebecca Minkoff’s Breezy Pastels & Beachy Stripes


Hey guys, I’m off to Cinque Terre in Italy and all I’m bringing with me is an Italian dictionary, a camera and a suitcase full of all the clothes from Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Ciao, prometto di scrivere!
Just kidding. I’m not going to Cinque Terre and I certainly don’t have a suitcase…

The Best Of NYFW: Rachel Comey’s Raw-Hemmed Glamour


Rachel Comey consistently makes clothes for the most glamorous arts and crafts teacher you’ve ever met in your life. Her latest collection shown at NYFW is no exception. Tons of volume — one can’t be too encumbered when in the midst of a macrame project! — a mixture of neutrals and nature-plucked colors (I…

The Best Of NYFW: Jill Stuart’s Feminine Take On ’70s Utilitarian Cool


While I love clothes, spend way too much time pinning shit I cannot afford on Pinterest and love assembling fake outfits in Photoshop for regular style features like One Times Three and Fashion Math, I do not consider myself a fashion person. That’s probably why writing about my favorite shows at New York Fashio…

The Best Of NYFW: Tracy Reese Mixes Prints With Panache


The only thing I love more than a bold print is multiple bold prints worn together, dammit! That’s why I’m so hot for many of the looks shown at Tracy Reese’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway show. Reese is known for embracing bright colors and standout fabrics, but I absolutely loved how she didn’t hold back…

This NYFW Designer Featured A Quadruple Amputee On The Runway

Designer Carrie Hammer began her “Role Models Not Runway Models” campaign earlier this year to feature and design for professional women who are underserved in the fashion world.

The Best Of NYFW: Diane Von Furstenburg Goes Gaga For Gingham & Colorful Accents


When I think of gingham, I envision picnic blankets and pizza parlor tablecloths and 1950s’ school girls — I don’t think of ass-kicking lady bosses with six-figure salaries and about as many boytoys. But that is exactly what the gingham — accented with splashes of bright colors and island-perfect prints — at Diane Vo…

The Best Of NYFW: Mara Hoffman’s Soft, Flowy, Sun-Bursting California Girl Glam


If I had a big ol’ budget for clothes and the power to snap my fingers and commission an entire wardrobe from one designer, I would immediately call up Mara Hoffman, hand her a briefcase full of dollar bills, and ask for her to just give me everything from her spring/summer 2015 collection. I’ve…

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. They’re educating the insides of their heads, as they should, and not [dressing] the outside with a fancy hat or a dress. Simple clothes, that’s key, and I think that’s what the fashio…
