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 out our gallery of the best white runway looks.
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, yeah, so you’re going to be wearing this.” That’s gotta sting.
Oh, New York Fashion Week, we can always count on you to give us some seriously WTF outfits mixed in with all the gorgeous gowns and fabulous new trends.

“To be honest I was totally terrified. I hadn’t actually been out of my house for seven weeks so I was really anxious. But it felt amazing.”
–Liberty Ross, model and estranged wife of scumbag/dry-humping enthusiast Rupert Sanders, describes her mood before walking the runway of the Alexander Wang show at New York Fashion Week. We spotted Liberty looking fabulous on the “Lawless” red carpet a couple weeks ago, so that seven weeks stat isn’t quiiiite accurate, but still, getting back into the crazy world of runway shows after weathering a very public cheating scandal would definitely be stressful. Kudos to Liberty for strutting her stuff with confidence. [The Cut]

Saturday marks the third day of New York Fashion Week — and featured shows from Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Prabal Gurung and tons of others. While we were less than excited about the offerings at Charlotte Ronson (sort of tepid florals in a muted shades), Cushnie et Ochs collection of white, magenta and blue dresses thrilled. Check them out — several other shows from fashion week’s third day, after the jump! Keep reading »
