There's currently a 100% chance of snow in New York City, meaning there is a 100% your gorgeous new Chloe coat isn't going to keep you warm. Luckily, we scoured the internet a put together a schedule of over 80 amazing shows you can stream to your computer right in the comfort of your own home...and in flannel pajamas.
I'm tired of elaborate nail art. It just looks wrong and overwrought to me now. Well, manicurists seemed to agree, because while there's been quite a bit of nail art backstage at the spring shows, it's mostly been really simple, graphic, and minimalist.
Fashion week came, and brought a feisty lil' friend named Nemo along for the ride--forcing us to consider forgoing, "Well, doesn't she look chic!" for, "Well, doesn't she look warm?!" The runways begged to differ, offering up endless new ways to bundle-up beautifully for fall 2013. Check out our top ten trend takeaways from the fashion week that weathered the storm in style.
Not even Nemo can stop the fashion crowd. Billy Reid, Tommy Hilfiger, Rebeccca Minkoff, Yigal Azrouel, Monika Chiang, Tocca, Lacoste, Jill Stuart, Sun Jung Wan, Ruffian, Christian Siriano and Nautica, will be showing their collections as planned this afternoon, evening and tomorrow morning, respectively, when the storm is supposed to be at its worst, WWD is reporting.
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!

We make no apologies for our obsession with Downton Abbey, the amazing British import that is loved by critics and viewers alike. We freaked out a lit
People have been predicting the death of nail art (at least on runways) for a few seasons now, and this is the first time we've been worried it may ac
Check out the latest Fashionista reviews! Christian Siriano showed a more toned down collection but managed to sneak in some of his signature drama.
There's always something very Old World about Brian Wolk and Claude Morais's refined and hyperfeminine collections for Ruffian. True to form, when we stepped out of the early morning flurries into The Studio at Lincoln Center Saturday, a Bach concerto was playing on the stereo. The pair's press notes stated they were inspired by "viewing bronze sculptures of Henry Moore set against the backdrop of English estates." As we watched the parade of sharply tailored separates—silk georgette bow blouses and knee-length high-waisted trumpet skirts, wide leg trousers, and double-breasted suiting in a warm array of wool melton and glen wool plaid—we couldn't help thinking these were silhouettes Downton Abbey's the sisters Crawley would lust after.
So we’re only halfway through New York Fashion Week, but there have been enough interesting beauty looks that a recap is in order. It’s a bit early to call trends yet, but orangey lips and strong eyes (not together!) are still having a run. As far as hair, we’ve seen just as much textured, messy hair as we’ve seen middle parts with stick straight locks. And nails are all over the place, but an early prediction is slate grey and deep burgundies will rule next fall. Click through to see our favorite beauty from NYFW so far. We’re not suggesting that all these looks are wearable, but they’re definitely cool.
This morning's Ruffian show started off with a sartorial bang as Siri Tollerod, clad in a slick patent leather blazer and skintight satin pants, stepped out to a pulsating disco-like beat. There's no question that designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais know their way around a Victorian-style suit, so it was a smart decision to show a collection heavy on jackets and trousers. But as for the heavy dose of patent that permeated the line, we weren't so sure about the overall effect. Megawatt shine can work well in small amounts--covering a coat's lapel or trimming a pocket, say--but skinny pants cut from the plastick-y material fell flat here. We did love the slouchy, cuffed, cropped trousers shown with several looks, however, and there were some lovely double-breasted coats, neat jackets, and tulip skirts in a "Prince of Wales" houndstooth.
May is graduation month, which means there are plenty of fledgling fashion designers ready to depart the sewing room and venture into the big, crazy w
