All The Weird Hats At Fashion Week

Now that Paris Fashion Week is winding down, we can reflect back on the weeks and weeks of runway shows, designer spotlights and trend forecasting. But before we close the chapter entirely on the Spring/Summer 2013 season, let's take a look at some of the bizarre headwear that made its way down the runway thi…

Are Fake Glasses A Good Thing?

Fake glasses or spectacles are the easiest fashion fix there is. Yesterday, after three meetings before 11 a.m. my fake specs came to the rescue when I dashed over to NYFW in the afternoon. Out of the door at 7:30 a.m. meant my hair was limp and clothes creased, but I felt brainy, busy and…

Aila Wang Makes Other Street Style Stars Look Like Child’s Play

Spotted at New York Fashion Week: the inimitable Aila Wang, three-year-old niece of designer Alexander Wang and total future It girl. She's only three, but Aila has her uncle's trademark urban-chic on lock, not to mention a street style savvy that most aspiring fashionistas can only dream of. Nike kicks, black snakeskin, and a mini…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Frisky Florals

Florals were everywhere this season but employed in a variety of ways. At Prabal Gurung, the flowers were bright and graphic, while Suno's florals were muted and pale. And at Duro Olowu, the florals offered a cheery pop of color. Check out our gallery of some of our favorite floral looks and let us know…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Cuckoo For Cutouts

Cutouts are a simple way to add a little sex appeal to an outfit. Which is probably why they were so prominent in the spring/summer 2013 collections presented at New York Fashion Week. From body-sculpting slashes and patterns, to more random and spontaneous marks, whether you prefer a peekaboo style, or a more geometric ski…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Magnificent Maxis

At the risk of sounding a bit too "New York Times discovers dresses," we'd like to point out that some of our favorite fashion moments this past NYFW were the maxi dresses and gowns. As is traditional, everyone from Prabal Gurung to Mara Hoffman to Monique Lhuillier created dramatic moments with long dresses. So we've picked a…

NYFW Trend Forecast: Leather, Lady

Leather is nothing new, but for spring/summer 2013, designers used it in innovative ways. From sewn leather trousers, to buttery leather dresses and colored denim in every hue, there was something for every leather lover at New York Fashion Week. Check out some of our faves above!

Ryan Lochte Smizes, Shows Tyra Banks His Duck Lips

I don't think I've ever been less attracted to Ryan Lochte than in this photo. Put the duck lips away, sexy! You don't need to pout to look good. America's favorite shit-for-brains swimmer has been covering New York Fashion Week for E! and ran into Tyra Banks at the Jeremy Scott runway show. The camera-loving…

Trendspotting: 6 Brand-New Beauty Ideas From NYFW

When a designer strays outside the box of beauty stalwarts, it's a refreshing change, given our steady diet of so-called "trends" -- smoky eyes, red lips, dewy skin, and bold brows. These ubiquitous looks are beautiful and striking, but they're also easy go-tos, which on principle renders them, well, kind of boring. But with each…

Model Inner Monologue: Sequin Nip Slip Guaranteed

Just when I thought New York Fashion Week was going to come and go without any designer sending a sequined, feathered, red-nippled bustier down the runway, The Blonds (who also designed the outfit for Drag Queen Barbie) come through for me. Phew, that was close.

Dress Porn: 21 Drop-Dead Gorgeous Gowns From New York Fashion Week

My favorite thing about fashion week is the craaaazy things designers parade down the runways in an effort to stand out, like bondage hula skirts and models with giant, eye-less lizard heads. My second favorite thing is looking at the season's fresh crop of breathtakingly opulent gowns, and the Spring/Summer 2013 collections didn't disappoint. Here…

New York Fashion Week Day 7: Rachel Roy, The Row, J. Crew And More!

Today, J. Crew showed its wares for next season, so you know Amelia was stoked. We swooned, on the other hand, for the new collection from Assembly, which has a real understated cool to it. The Row's collection of oversized, flowy garments seemed to really reflect the Olsen twins' personal style. And Rachel Roy's collectio…

The Best And Worst Of Celeb Street Style At NYFW

It's true: most of the fun of Fashion Week occurs off the runway. It's not that I don't look forward to seeing the shows, because of course I do, but with all of the celebrity action that comes with the territory, it's impossible not to be curious about what they're wearing to the events. Click…

Beauty Cues: Mandy Moore Is A Breath Of Fall Freshness At NYFW

As a child of the '90s, I have an intrinsic emotional association with Mandy Moore. I vividly recall listening to her completely inane songs on my Walkman waiting for my mom to pick me up from karate (not an isolated incident, she was always late to pick me up from karate). Mandy has done a…

According To NYFW, Black Is The New Black For Next Summer

Spring and summer fashion is generally pretty predictable insofar as it is, well, summery — think airy, diaphanous fabrics in light, muted colors accented by eye-catching brights, and you've just about hit the nail on the head every time. As the S/S 2013 shows crop up, we get a good glimpse at what to expect…

New York Fashion Week Day 6: Karen Walker, Monique Lhuillier, Marc Jacobs And More!

Day 6 of fashion week and there were several strong shows: Rodarte, Karen Walker and Monique Lhuillier all impressed with their deeply feminine, highly wearable collections. Marc Jacobs' clown-wear, not so much. Check out his runway looks, along with Alice + Olivia, Thom Browne, and more -- after the jump!

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,…
