Debate This: Are “Mohawk” Or “Mohican” Hairstyles Kinda Offensive?

This morning, my girl friend, who is a beauty writer, sent me an email with a link to a Stylist UK post about the hair and makeup on the models for the Issey Miyake show at Paris Fashion Week. The runway models had their hair pulled high up into sleek ponytails crafted into a ridge…

Jessica Chastain & Kate Moss Compete For Cutest Couple

Paris has been awash with fashions and celebrities and celebrity fashion designers for the past week, so it makes sense that International Fashions Model and Sublime Cigarette Smoker Kate Moss would be there, with her husband Jamie Hince. But also there? Almost An Oscar Winner Jesssica Chastain, with her beau, the very Italianly named Gia…

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Day 9

Aaaaand it’s a wrap! After New York, London, Milan, and finally 9 long, show-filled days in Paris, Fashion Month is over. We’ll certainly miss the constant flow of impressive new looks, both on the runway and in the streets… but we can’t imagine that the globe-trotting editors and fashionistas who have to actually cover each…

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 4-8

After three weeks in New York, London, and Milan, we’ve finally made it to Paris. There are so many shows during Paris Fashion Week that it can be easy to lose track, so we’re catching up on the past 4 days with the headliners. Christian Dior, Céline, Chloé, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Chanel, Valentino, and Alexander…

Garrett Hedlund And Kirsten Dunst Are Just Really Unattractive

Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst are such an ugly couple. They make me sick. At least these two fuggos found each other, because nobody else would want to date them, am I right? No, but seriously, how cute is it that Garrett escorted his lady to the Yves Saint Laurent show? Dreams, baby, dreams[Photo: FameFlynet]

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 1-3

After three weeks in New York, London, and Milan, we’ve finally made it to Paris. Many of the most important shows of the season just so happen to run in Paris — you might even be able to say that the city is the original home of the industry itself. The coming week is a…

Regular Dresses Too Regular? Try Some Hairy Ones Instead

When we talk about the hair at fashion shows, we generally mean the hair on the models, not the hair on the clothes. Charlie Le Mindu certainly didn’t have convention in mind when he presented Metal Queen, his “haute coiffeur” collection, on the runway in Paris during Couture Week. “I wanted to do a collectio…

Guy Looks We Love: The Hottest Dudes From The Paris Runway Shows

Guys, I have a really tough job. I have to spend part of today ogling hot male models, looking for cool new menswear looks from the Paris fashion shows. Shed a few tears for me, will you? I’ve slaved over this gallery of hot guys in looks we love, just for you. Take a look,…

Triple Well Played: Amanda Seyfriend, Emma Stone & Dianna Agron

Just look at this trio of beauties sitting front row at the Miu Miu show at Paris Fashion Week! It’s like a style sandwich with Emma Stone filling, and damn, they’re all killing it. I love how each lady has a very different look: there’s Amanda in a fierce red pantsuit and super trendy purple…

Models Two-By-Two Down Escalators At Louis Vuitton

Marc Jacobs’ designing is often rife with a pastiche of cultural references from the past. His latest collection for Louis Vuitton is no different, directly pulling from mod ’60s styles. While the collection was pretty, and pretty unsurprising, its display was anything but: Jacobs sent his models down one of four specially painted escalators, which…

Well Played: Jessica Chastain Plays It Cool At The Saint Laurent Show

Depressingly enough, I often find Jessica Chastain to be the walking manifestation of When Bad Clothes Happen To Fabulous People (see Exhibits A, B, and C), but this is one look that I can definitely get behind. The actress showed up to Hedi Slimane’s first show for the newly-coined Saint Laurent in her YSL best,…

The Cyborg-Styled Looks From The On Aura Tout Vu Couture Show

As Paris couture week rolls on, we thought we’d take a moment to look at a lesser-known entry into the couture-o-verse. That would be On Aura Tout Vu, the French label whose name translates to “You think you’ve seen it all.”

Their offerings this season skew toward the dramatic, the Gaga-rific, the over-the-to…

Marc Jacobs Rocks A Pink Polo Dress

Marc Jacobs attended the Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris last week wearing this semi-sheer knee-length pink polo dress. When I was 12, I had my own knee-length pink polo dress from Lands’ End (which was also semi-sheer, although it took me a year to realize it), and I ca…

The Best Of Paris Fashion Week Beauty

Paris Fashion Week is my favorite for many reasons, not all of which are a direct result of my all-encompassing Francophilia. I love the grandiose clothes marched down the catwalk, the sense of total, no-holds-barred luxury, and, well, the refined French-ness of it all. It also helps that many of the most iconic designers show…

Marc Jacobs Sends A Real Live Locomotive Down The Runway At Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is basically synonymous with luxury, so it’s no surprise that the brand goes all-out for its shows … especially with one Marc Jacobs at the helm. If you thought last season’s stunning life-size carousel was unbeatable, well, think again. As is fitting for a collection heavily influenced by “the golden age of rail…

Style Stealer: Paris Fashion Week Attendees

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I almost prefer Fashion Week street style to the clothes marched down the runway. I know, I know, it’s basically blasphemy, and I acknowledge that none of the real-girl style would exist without catwalk collections to forecast trends, but there’s nothing quite like seeing an actual…

Kenzo Designers Treat The Crowd To … Cupcakes

If there’s one thing that’s generally true about the fashion industry, it’s that fashion and delicious buttery snacks usually (almost never) don’t go together. But not so in the case of design house Kenzo, who flew the bakers from Magnolia Cupcake Company over to Paris to craft special cupcakes for their show. As guests arrived,…

Watch: Lanvin’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection On The Runway

Last week Paris fashion house Lanvin, helmed by the esteemed designer Alber Elbaz, debuted its Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Trim, elegant silhouettes flitted down the runway as Tilda Swinton and Dita Von Teese looked on — and Elbaz proved once again why he’s one of the fashion world’s favorites. Take a look! …

Our Favorite Looks From Paris Fashion Week

Ah! Paris Fashion Week! The best fashion week of them all, if you ask me. Where designers like Chloe, Julien David and Gareth Pugh convene to show off their latest collections and the fashion crowd still smokes ciggies and acts totally bored. We’ve assembled our favorite looks from the first round of Paris shows, and…
