Nicky Hilton's New Nicholai Collection: American Apparel-esque…

(Even Lauren Conrad talked her way into a lucrative reality TV deal.) Yet the girl keeps on trying, telling herself she actually has a "career." Her fall… » 3/14/08 4:30pm 3/14/08 4:30pm

Stella McCartney: No Animals Were Harmed In The Creation Of This…

This morning in Paris, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow BFF Stella McCartney showed her Fall/Winter 2008 collection and, unlike Jean-Paul Gaultier's over-the-top presentation yesterday, there wasn't an animal skin or pelt to be seen.

This Fall, We'll All Be Futuristic Hippies With A Penchant For Big Coats

This Fall, We'll All Be Perfectly Princessy Ophelias Channeling David…

Fashion week stomps on! Yesterday's collections included Derek Lam, Tommy Hilfiger, Reem Acra, Calvin Klein, Bill Blass and Zac Posen. The day saw lots of tragically romantic dresses (Ophelias on opium) and lots of skinny, menswear-inspired suits for women (David Bowie).
