Rio Fashion Week ended today, and our favorite show was Maria Bonita Extra, the Brazilian line that's slowly becoming an American girl favorite. We love the printed minidresses and the brown checkered flutter blouse from MBE, and we also think it’s cool that more and more Brazilian designers are showing each year. Meanwhile, some Rio locals have emigrated to New York Fashion Week -Alexandre Herchcovitch and Rosa Cha have shown for several seasons, and Francisco Costa of Calvin Klein hails from Brazil - as do Vogue faces Caroline Trentini and Raquel Zimmerman (and my favorite girl, Cintia Dicker). At the same time, and international buyers are adopting a more diverse global perspective. Maybe soon, Gisele won't be the most famous Brazilian in fashion! --ALISON COOL

Attend New York Fashion Week From Your Couch: A Complete List of Shows Livestreaming This Week
New York is unreasonably cold right now. Like impending-blizzard-freeze-your-Rag & Bone-covered-butt-off cold. This is exactly why we, and fashionistas nowhere near New York, are praising the fashion gods (more like IMG & various PR people) for the glorious amount of New York fashion week shows livestreaming this week. We wrangled 89 shows (89!) and presentations to tune into over the course of the next week...with even more coming in! The best part? You won't be judged for taking in these shows in your pjs over some popcorn or pizza or half a bottle of wine... See any shows we missed? Let us know!
