Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this oft-dreaded, always-candy-filled day, we’ve rounded up the coolest—and most powerful—couples working in fashion. Click through to read all about them, and let us know: who’s your favorite fashion couple?
Going to the J.Crew presentation yesterday was like being a kid in a candy shop. (Really, though, I prefer salty things but no one ever says “like a kid at a store full of chips”, so, moving on.) The retailer’s fall 2013 collection was so rich in saturated jewel tones, so boldly printed, so unabashedly covered in shimmering embellishments, it was truly eye candy.
We’re approaching the home stretch of New York Fashion Week, which means many of our attitudes have shifted from excited and energetic to when-will-this-be-over? So, we asked some of fashion’s busiest bees to tell us what they do to stay sane (and no we don’t mean pharmaceuticals–though those certainly aren’t off-limits). From Jenna Lyons’ many coats, to BryanBoy’s cathartic Instagramming, click through for their (and our) tips and tricks!
In only eight seasons, SUNO has become the place to be on NYFW’s first Friday. Everyone packed into Milk’s tiny show space from the Courtin-Clarins girls to the Russian street style starlets to Jenna Lyons to, well, everyone. The scene inside was extra jammed because the center row of seats that usually divides the runway was taken out to make room for the prop tee-pee and scattered white rocks that set the stage for the more baroque, nature-inspired fall 2013 collection.
During a day of running around Manhattan while the rest of civilization preps for the Blizzard-pocalypse (twenty inches! maybe!), the Fashionista team took in shows from Richard Chai, Dannijo, Timo Weiland, Costello Tagliepietra and more. On the way we snapped Scott and Garance in the act, fashion’s silver fox Nickelson Wooster, and Jenna Lyons rocking the most envy endoucing leopard coat and bubblegum pants backstage at Kimberly Ovitz. We could not want to be her more.

To survive in this business, you’ve got to have more than talent. You’ve got to be shrewd, savvy, determined—and a crazy-hard worker.
So here’s our list of the 50 most influential people working in New York fashion right now. To compile the list, we used our own knowledge of the industry combined with advice from inside sources.

Inaugural Fashion Roundup: The big style news from this week’s presidential festivities was Michelle Obama’s (second) Jason Wu inaugural ball dress, but there were plenty of other great style moments, too. We also led you through the rest of the FLOTUS’s ensembles, including Thom Browne for the public Inauguration appearances, Naeem Khan at church, and Reed Krakoff at the swearing-in.
The Reigning Style Blog Stars: We compiled all the data, did our research, and ranked the most influential personal style bloggers right now. Did your favorite streetwalker make the cut?
Every single piece of Michelle Obama’s extensive inauguration weekend wardrobe has been thoroughly scrutinized, but there’s one item in particular that’s gotten everyone extra fired up: The J. Crew Valentina belt the First Lady added over her Thom Browne coat.
It’s no secret that the First Family has a thing for J.Crew. All three of the Obama ladies–Michelle, Malia and Sasha–wore at least one item from the retailer this Inauguration weekend. But just because they live in the White House doesn’t mean the Obamas get special treatment from the brand.
Lyons addresses the speech, in which she acknowledged her relationship with Courtney Crangi, for the first time, saying,
It’s just as surprising to me as it probably is to everyone else. It certainly is strange to wake up, at 44, and look at the person next to you and think: ‘Oh! This wasn’t what I expected.’ But I don’t think love works that way, and I am O.K. with that.
Mickey Drexler also weighed in.
