It’s that time of year again! That is, time for the the human clothing hangers better known as models to strut down the catwalks of Lincoln Center in beautiful, expensive and sometimes absurd designer clothing, for the Fall 2014 runway shows. Each day, we’ll present to you a selection of noteworthy shows so that, eve…

The Most Entertaining NYFW Interview You’ve Seen All Week

MTVDesi’s resident fashionistas, Shugs and Fats (comedians Nadia Manzoor and Radhika Vaz), stopped by Lincoln Center to dig deeper into this season’s trends and the fashionable “governors” who wear them. Unlike all the other NYFW interviews, these “sisters from another mister,” clad head-to-toe in their trendiest abayas, aren’t afraid to ask the fashion questions we…

Jimmy Kimmel Sends His Fake News Team To Fashion Week, Hilarity Ensues

When Jimmy Kimmel sent a fake news crew to Coachella to interview hipsters about imaginary bands, the prank became an instant classic. Now Kimmel’s “Lie Witness News” team is back, and interviewing another famously self-serious crowd: people hanging out at New York Fashion Week. Watch these fashionistas offer their reviews of fake high-end designers like…

Fashion Week Poll: Don’t These Dresses Look Like Baked Goods?

Perhaps I’m just hungry, but is it me or do these Fashion Week dresses look like baked goods?

I instantly thought ‘wedding cake’ when the Marchesa model (left) walked down the runway wearing a dress that seemed to be made out of ruffled icing. And then there was this Betsey Johnso…

Fashion Week Poll: Love Me Some Leather

Hi, my name is Katie and I’m addicted to leather. But seriously … the fact that leather is SO in this fall and that it’s coming back for more next spring, at least according to what we’re seeing on the NYFW runways, might be a serious problem for my bank account.

NYFW Day 6: All Of Our Fave Shows (In GIFs!)

We’re coming to the end, almost, of NYFW, believe it or not. It whipped by us at a breakneck speed, bringing all the high fashion dramz, celebrity fashionistas and completely unwalkable heels to Lincoln Center. There’s still a buttload more to look at, though, so before you say your final farewells to the…

A First-Timer’s Experience At New York Fashion Week (In GIFs!)

While Frisky readers know me from my occasional “What Are We Wearing Today” posts when I was one of The Frisky’s marketing interns, I actually lived a double life this summer. Twice a week, I headed into The Frisky’s office for some Google Analytics and design shenanigans, while the other three days I spent trafficking…

Bar Mitzvah Boy Sam Horowitz Is Having More Fun Than Anybody At Fashion Week

Sam Horowitz jazz hands-ed his way into our hearts when a video of his burlesque-themed bar mitzvah went viral last month. So it should be no surprise that a kid with that much moxie would show the uptight fashionistas at New York Fashion Week how it’s done.

Sam and his mom Angela attended…

Yup, Thom Browne Is Still Delightfully Wacky

Where most of New York Fashion Week’s entries are respectable, predictable sportswear (Donna Karan) or fluttery feminine gowns (Zac Posen), there’s always one kooky dude you can count on to really blow the whole thing out. Thom Browne’s menswear collections are the epitome of preppy eccentric (though sometimes his menswear runway shows ca…

Fashion Week Poll: Pretty Prints Edition

I’m a sucker for a beautiful prints, which makes me a happy lady this Fashion Week. From flirty florals to edgy patterns, I’ve been seeing a lot of exquisite prints on jumpsuits, dresses, gowns…pretty much everything.

Two of my absolute favorites are the Victoria by Victoria Beckham long-sleeved dress and Alice

Runway Style Stealer: A Maxi Moment At Tibi

Gorgeous clothes, tons of festivities, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search

Fashion Week Poll: Wanna Get Wild?

Okay, it’s official. Diane von Furstenberg has had the very first NYFW collection where I’ve loved EVERY single piece.

Maybe it’s because I’m super into animal prints right now or because the radio has been playing Katy Perry’s “Roar” every five fucking seconds, but DVF’s safari-themed pieces are just what the doctor…

Model Inner Monologue: Dazed And Confused

Oh fashion week, we can always count on you to supply us with style inspiration, WTF outfits, and a plethora of male models who seem truly confused as to where they are and what they are doing and why exactly they are not wearing any pants. This guy from the Mark McNairy runway…

Runway Style Stealer: Rebecca Taylor’s Feminine-Take On The Moto Trend

I’m not usually a huge Rebecca Taylor fan; she tends to be way too girly for my taste. But as I noted yesterday, I am loving her Spring 2014 collection because she’s toughened up her usual frilly pastels with sportier shapes. And the best thing about this look in particular? It takes a summer staple — the…

More From Days 3 & 4 Of NYFW (In GIFs!)

Rachel Roy shocked us with one of our favorite shows of NYFW so far. The collection embodies a downtown coolness without being overtly chilly or overly pretentious. In short, we wish we could wear it all, but alas! It’s not in the budget, and instead, we’ll admire from afar. Roy was in good…

NYFW Day 3-4: Our Favorite Shows (In GIFs!)

There are so many shows, and not enough hours in the day to possibly go to all of them. Good thing, then, that we’ve got your New York Fashion Week coverage down. We’re not even half way through day two, and there’s already been nearly three dozen shows. We’ve whittled it down to…

Fashion Week Poll: What’s Black, White & Blue All Over?

New York Fashion Week is about half way over, which means we’ve already seen lots of good, lots of bad and LOTS of WTF. Thankfully, the two dresses above helped to restore my faith in what’s been hitting the runway. After seeing far too many dresses that looked like bath robes, there were…

Fashion Week Poll: Are These Models Pruney Yet?

Oh, New York Fashion Week. I do love all of the out-of-the-box, cutting-edge styles, but I’m fairly confident … wait … yep, I have both of these outfits. They’re hanging on the back of my bathroom door next to my loofah and soap-on-a-rope.

Which of these high fashion ensembles most resemble…
