Donna Karan, for the Depressed Vampire in You

The fall 2013 collection Donna Karan showed today during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is very... brown. And black. And grey. It's kinda boring and blah, with a decidedly 90s vampire twist. Of course, there's a few things nobody would turn down, but the rest is a bit (blood)sucking. But maybe that's because I'm dead on… » 2/11/13 11:30pm 2/11/13 11:30pm

DKNY Does Red, White And Blue For Spring

For spring and summer, DKNY showed clothes that looked fresh and sweet, without getting too cutesy. There were plenty of long, unstructured dresses that swished around the models' legs as they made their way around the long runway.
