More Amazing Hair From London Fashion Week

We love looking at all the crazy fashions on display at fashion week, but sometimes the hair is even better.

Can Couture Ever Get Hip And Modernized?

The problem with couture has existed pretty much since its inception. How much do we value fashion as an art, and at what point does couture's importance cease if it remains not only elitist, but completely impractical? (Unless, of course, you're keen on doing your grocery shopping in 40-pound ballgowns.) With an injured global economy…

Ever wonder about the rules of decorum for a fashion show? Wonder no more, because we now have a poster child for what never to do: Courtney Love.

Crave: Christopher Kane Gorilla Shirts

I don't know what all the fuss is about when it comes to these ugly/sexy Christopher Kane gorilla shirts/dresses, but I love them. It makes as much sense as why people enjoy sitting in the rain or feel the need to eat Oreos with peanut butter. Celebs from Rihanna to our Sea of Shoes girl
