Rodarte’s runway shows are known for being innovative with beauty — after all, they brought us those gorgeous gold scattered star hair clips, and last fall’s Australian Outback-inspired makeup had every fashion girl clamoring for “dirty” skin and nails for the first (and likely the last) time. This year’s standout look is decidedly more refined, but no less stunning: hairstylist Odile Gilbert crafted soft, romantic interwoven braids and offset them with headbands made from barbed wire. Obsessed. Where can we buy? Just kidding, we’re headed to the hardware store after work for this easy, super-stylish DIY.
Hard to believe, but New York Fashion Week has come and gone. We saw models, celebs and general mayhem flanking the runways, while designers served up rather staid designs. Still, there were some definite highs — we’re thinking Honor, Marc and Altuzarra, for starters. Want a quick overview of what you might have missed? Peruse this NYFW video round up!

Is Marc Jacobs asleep at the wheel? Maybe not, but he certainly was feeling sleepy. That’s what we’ve surmised by going through his pajama-themed Fall 2013 collection. After being cancelled last week thanks to a non-fashion-loving blizzard, the show finally went on last night.
You know how you’ve been seeing a lot of pajama blouses lately? Apparently Marc decided to imitate not innovate, and sent plenty sleepwear inspired pieces down the runway. He paired them with sharp pencil skirts and over-sized coats in a collection that recalled Daniel Vosovic’s “Project Runway” pieces.
Then there was the “will never look good on anyone” capri-length purple sparkle jumpsuit. Style.com called the collection “stripped down and irony-free” but you really can’t expect me to take that jumpsuit seriously.
Did we like the collection? Overall, definitely. Will we be able to afford the collection? Not on your life.
It’s always bittersweet when New York Fashion Week comes to a close. On one hand, editors and Fashion People citywide breathe a sigh of relief (not to mention regular people who just so happen to live near Lincoln Center); on the other hand, it significantly diminishes your chances of stealing a glimpse at Carine Roitfeld on 64th Street or spotting Karlie Kloss on the subway. Oh well, there’s always next season… or London, starting tomorrow. Finishing off NYFW Autumn/Winter 2013, we’ve got Naeem Khan, Oscar de la Renta, J. Mendel, Marchesa, Proenza Schouler, and Ralph Lauren…
