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

Jimmy Kimmel Fashion Week Prank
"Eddie Munster had a good aesthetic this season."

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 George Costanza and ridiculous Photoshopped runway shows involving watermelons and dog poop. Priceless.

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 Johnson number (right) … I want to eat it.

Don’t get me wrong, both are pretty. Though they’re not exactly my taste, they look like they would satisfy my taste buds. Which one do you think looks more like something you’d hoover into your pie hole during a bad bout of PMS? Click “vote” below your choice to weigh in.

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.

Despite the fact that every time I purchase something leather, I think about Ross Gellar’s’ pants on “Friends” (“The lotion and the powder have made a PASTE!”), I can’t get enough. The two looks above were seen on the catwalk this NYFW and I can’t decide which I prefer.

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 samples and learning the ropes of the fashion world at up-and-coming fashion brand Nonoo. It was an incredibly exciting summer for Nonoo (their runway show is pictured above) — the brand was declared a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist in July, and I was lucky enough to be a part it.

I was even luckier to get to leave school in St. Louis in order to fly back to New York for a weekend (thanks Mom and Dad!) to attend Nonoo’s first-ever runway show for NYFW. So on September 6, I made an attempt to look runway-ready and headed into the city for the Nonoo show. But while I knew all along that it was going to be weird, I hadn’t realized quite how surreal it would be to experience the ultimate fashion scene as someone who really has no idea what they’re doing. Get the scoop on my New York Fashion Week craziness in GIF form…

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

Sam Horowitz
Amazing Bar Mitvah Boy
Now This Is How You Kick Off A Bar Mitzvah!
World, meet Sam Horowitz, the bar mitvah dancing king. Read More »

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 NYFW’s Helmut Lang show, and sat along Taylor Momsen (remember her?) and Stacy Kiebler. He wore black leather pants and an animal print blazer.

“He loves fashion,” explained his mom. “He’s got friends at Neiman Marcus.”

In August, Sam appeared on “Good Morning America” and recreated his famous bar mitzvah dance, with six adult lady back up dancers. Seriously, this kid knows how to live. [Daily Mail]
