Herve Leger Spring 2014: Athletic Bandages
Season after season, designers Max and Lubov Azria find themselves faced with the challenge of updating those iconic Hever Leger bandage dresses without straying too far from the brand (and upsetting those die-hard Herve Leger fangirls). In February, we saw the Herve Leger girl gain street smarts. This time around, she's got a sporty vibe--as influenced by Lubov Azria, herself. "I've been training for a marathon happening in April so this was a natural fit for me," she told us backstage.
Inside the World of Herve Leger's Ultimate Fangirls
You’ll find them at every Herve Leger fashion week show: The fangirls (fan-women?) dressed to the nines in the house’s signature bandage dresses, sky high stilettos, cleavage up to their necks, big blowouts, and a full face of makeup. If the house that Max Azria built was spiritual, the Herve Leger show at Lincoln Center would be the ultimate pilgrimage. So who are these women who are neither editors nor buyers, stylists nor celebrities? They're the brand's most die-hard customers and they scoop up Herver Leger bandage dresses like they're just another venti soy latte from Starbucks.
10 New Ways to Wear Ponytails, Straight From the Fall Runways
Ponytails are the new braids. From New York all the way through Paris—the ponytail reigned supreme during the fall 2012 season. Obviously the pony is a perennial favorite, but it had a particularly strong showing this season. But the style can be more challenging to reproduce than it seems. On the catwalk, it’s a high-fashion look that reads casual and low-maintenance. But on the sidewalk, it has the potential to come across quite lackluster, horribly humdrum, and soccer mom-ish. That’s where we come in—a few of our favorite designers (in collaboration with their amazing runway hair stylists) have found easy and interesting ways to retell the age-old pony tale. Here, ten quick tips for the prettiest, fashion-forward, DIY ponies ever, straight from the fall 2012 runways.

Hervé Léger Fall 2012: It’s All About the Harnesses
Just when you think that skin-tight, respiratory constricting and strategically cut-out bandage dresses by Hervé Léger by Max Azria can’t possibly get any more suggestive, fall 2012 comes along. Two words for you: bondage and harnesses. Every single look that came down the runway was accessorized with some sort of strappy, buckled leather harness, be it waist-whittling corset belts, strapped-in vests, full-on bondage gear and in one instance a skirt-type contraption, which kind of hinted at a chastity belt but, then again, not really.
