Plus, '90s supermodel Shalom Harlow makes a career comeback
New blog Part Nouveau, or ‘partly new’, delves into fashion history to showcase the inspiration–be it art, photography or design–behind some of today’s biggest fashion moments. It’s fascinating and impossible not to get lost in, so we asked the site’s founder, Lilah Ramzi, to give us a little history lesson each week. In this week's lesson, Shalom Harlow takes on the inimitable Coco Chanel.
Back in the 90s, Shalom Harlow was everywhere--from Chanel campaigns to couture, she was one of the supers, (along with Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova,

After hearing about the makeup look from pro Diane Kendal backstage at the Alexander Wang show yesterday, I was about to tweet: “Someday Alex Wang will put his girls in a strong red lip—but today isn’t the day.” Yep, same old grungy Wang girl. Ho hum. But then a colleague said to me, “Look, Gisele is over there.” The day quickly went from ho-hum to holy shit. Gisele was walking in the Alexander Wang show! She kept press at arm’s length backstage, telling photogs and reporters (who obviously gathered around her chair like the fawning subjects we all are) that she wasn’t giving any sound bites today. I’m assuming she didn’t want to hear the word “football” at all, after her little outburst from last weekend. Instead we all watched as she flirted with Guido Palau while he did her hair in the usual limp Alex Wang way. After taking about a zillion pictures of her looking perfect without makeup, I wandered over to a different section.

In between taxis, subways, and the occasional pedi-cab, we managed to take a few snaps of NYFW through our eyes.
