Because fashion never puts a moratorium on being weirdly racially-charged (but not quite “racist”): French house Céline showed yesterday at Paris Fashion Week, and while the clothes were perfection (as Céline is wont to be), things got weird with the footwear, including some AstroTurf offerings and, um, these. They’re to die for, I know, but don’t get too attached: they only come in one shade, Caucasian. Honestly, I think this is less of a “diversity oversight” and more like this may very well be the only pair because who would actually wear them? Seriously, who? What’s bothering me infinitely more than the racial implications is the realistic bunching (wrinkles?) around the heel. I’m gagging. [NY Mag]

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 come next year … and is it just me, or is it all turning out to be a bit darker than usual? That’s not to say that the season’s requisite lightness, comparably more cheerful than that of Autumn/Winter styles, has been sacrificed in favor of deeper, moodier hues; it’s just that all of the whites and pastels are offset by a whole lot of black. I’m the last to complain — black is the predominate color in my wardrobe — so yes, I am unquestionably biased, but I think the contrast serves to make the clothes all the more striking. Are you, like me, thrilled that some of your favorite black pieces might just make the spring/summer cut, or are you all about the whites and brights come June, regardless of what the runway dictates?

The Top Three Beauty Trends To Watch (And Emulate) This Fall

Brace yourselves: it’s time to start considering fall beauty. It seems like just yesterday we were discussing our lighter, more low-maintenance summer beauty routines, but the forecast will be replete with smoky eyes and vampy lips before we know it. I look to the Autumn/Winter runway shows for a bit of insight into what we’ll be seeing on the red carpet in the coming months — and if celebrity trends are any indicator, we should all be in search of that perfect burgundy lipstick. Click through for a selection of fall looks straight off the catwalk, along with a few simple steps to wearing them yourself.

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-top and way out there. And the styling at their runway show? Full of cyborg-ish details and outlandish chimeras.

This latest collection was titled “Fishing for Compliments,” and is supposed to read like an underwater scene. Personally, I think it seems more influenced by “Snow White and the Huntsman,” but perhaps I’m missing some obvious connection between the fish scales the collection’s supposed to convey and the armor I interpret.

Either way, it’s all very costume-y and dramatic. Take a look after the jump.

What a difference a week makes. Less than seven days ago, Katie Holmes was in the throes of announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise. But now? She’s focused on fashion. Holmes has had a fashion line with stylist Jeanne Yang — called Holmes & Yang — since 2009. It’s currently available exclusively at Barneys New York and Harvey Nichols, but this fall the collection will walk the runway in its debut appearance at New York Fashion Week. Cue Diana Ross’s “I’m Coming Out”…  [WWD]

All The Looks From Raf Simons First Christian Dior Show

Whoo! Guys, it’s Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week! Designer Raf Simons debuted his first collection with Christian Dior this week, to a mind-blowing array of celebrities and designers. The show was set in a series of rooms covered in wall-to-wall blue orchids, white mimosas and roses, which gave the impression of being inside a Rose Bowl float. Anna Wintour loved it though, as did some of the other vaunted guests, including Marc Jacobs, Marion Cotillard, and Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz. Critical reactions to the collection have been for the most part positive — but what do you think? Do Raf’s looks live up to Dior’s reputation? Or does the show fall flat?
