This week’s 10 best dressed this way…
Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs unveiled a super sexy, super sleek collection of mostly black and white body-con dresses and provocative swimsuits. So, no news there.
Of course, we mean that in a good way–Cushnie and Ochs stick to what they’re best at and kill it every season.
We kicked our day off bright and early with the debut of the first ever plus size fashion line to show at fashion week, and never slowed down. From checking out the best beauty backstage at Rag & Bone and Helmut Lang, to scoping models-off-duty, we saw a lot.
Check out all the awesome stuff we saw on day two of New York Fashion Week:
This New York Fashion Week delivers 13 brands–with aesthetics ranging from avant-garde and edgy to classic and couture-inspired–being helmed (or co-helmed) by African American creatives. We are excited to see these individuals defying the odds many face as black designers in New York. Click through the slideshow to check them out.
Keri Russell’s envy-inducing mane may be her signature, but she’s been wearing some pretty flawless things on her press tour for Austenland, including this Stella McCartney jumpsuit. Adding to the perfection of this week’s best dressed list is Rooney Mara, looking effortlessly chic in Calvin Klein, Diane Kruger winning us over yet again in Carven, and Lily Collins, who continues to impress us with her risk-taking choices.

Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs are the dynamic duo behind the uber successful line Cushnie et Ochs–nominated for the prestigious Swarovski Award at yesterday’s CFDA Awards. Cushnie and Ochs, who are gorgeous to boot, attended the awards with Karlie Kloss, whom they called their “tall statue of a date.”
Over the weekend we bumped into the two at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and asked them to address the longstanding rumors that the two are actually a couple, among other things. Here’s what they had to say:
The 2013 CFDA awards, fashion’s Oscars if you will, will be handed out in mere hours. The industry has been gathering to recognize and honor its leading talents since 1981.
A lot has changed since the early years of the awards. What was once a small intimate industry event is now a widely covered celebrity event. “I think it reflects a broader shift over the last few years where fashion has become more and more popular,” Style.com’s editor in chief Dirk Standen told us. “The internet has had a lot to do with that. It’s entertainment on a par with movies and music.”
So to prep you for tonight’s awards we’ve assembled this handy primer. In it you’ll find the complete list of nominees, our predictions on who will take home the big prizes, and all the celebrity presenters and attendees slated to show up.
Whether you’re going to a movie, the theater, a fashion show, or even Vienna’s Life Ball, chances are Swarovski is there, twinkling on some embellishment on a curtain, a chandelier, a costume, an evening dress, or, in the case of the Life Ball, a very blingy, very large AIDS ribbon. All those little crystals do a lot to support the arts–especially fashion. At Monday’s CFDA Awards, Swarovski sponsors awards for womenswear, menswear, and accessories.
The woman at the helm of all that glittering support is Nadja Swarovski, whose great, great, grandfather, Daniel Swarovski, founded the company and worked with all the major couture houses in Paris at the start of the 19th century. We grabbed a few minutes with the extremely busy Swarovski in advance of Monday’s awards to pick her brain about everything from how Swarovski scouts and supports designers to her background working with famed fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert.
