Does Jeremy Scott Have an Adult Baby Fetish Or What

Jeremy Scott's latest collection for Fall Fashion Week, in which models were dressed like acidic Raggedy Anns and overalls were crafted in plasticky material that looked like the liner for a 1970s baby crib, raises the question: what the hell is even going on? » 2/19/15 10:15am 2/19/15 10:15am

KTZ Appropriates Native American Culture at Fashion Week

The London-based fashion line KTZ, designed by Marjan Pejoski, showed its Fall 2015 line at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, and its appropriated "Native American" prints and caricatures were actually quite shocking—albeit in a boring, "we've been here so many times before" type of way. » 2/18/15 6:45pm 2/18/15 6:45pm

Fuck a Coat; Wear a Tent

On Sunday evening, the temperature in New York City was something like 3 degrees, not factoring wind chill. Factoring wind chill, the temperature was "Fuck You I'm Not Leaving My Apartment." » 2/17/15 9:45am 2/17/15 9:45am

Nothing At Fashion Week Will Top Discount Universe

New York Fashion Week is getting notoriously boring and corpo, so it's already starting at a loss, but now all these poor, beleaguered designers dropping $100k on staging runway shows have another thing to contend with: they have to live up to the promise of the first major show on the schedule. No, not talking about… » 2/13/15 5:15pm 2/13/15 5:15pm

The Betsey Johnson Show Delightfully Celebrated Marriage Equality

As usual, Betsey Johnson's spring 2015 collection was raunchy, girly, loud, and — above all — fun. While all of her shows are beauteous spectacles, this one was especially great: it was a ruffly, lacy, glittery celebration of marriage equality. » 9/11/14 2:00pm 9/11/14 2:00pm

​Rodarte, for the Sporty Mermaid Princess in You

Oscar de la Renta, for the Sugary Sweet Country Club Princess in You

Spring 2015, as far as Oscar de la Renta is concerned, is much like the Spring of the mid-fifties: Fit-and-flare shapes, pretty-as-a-picture pastel hues, and a general sense of optimism. » 9/10/14 5:00pm 9/10/14 5:00pm

Versus Versace: For the Flashy Rock Goddess in You

Alexander Wang, for the Sporty Cyberpunk in You

This weekend, while some of America sat at home spilling marinara sauce onto their sweatpants, designers continued unveiling beauteous collections at New York Fashion Week.

Designer Carolina Herrera Hates Your Outfit

New York Fashion Week is creeping toward us like a judgmental grandmother and the designers are out and about sharing opinions you'd probably rather not hear, like 'Hey, you look awful!'

Marc Jacobs, for the Stoic, Futuristic Angel in You

At Marc Jacobs' fall/winter 2014 runway show, hundreds of pillowy clouds were suspended from the ceiling; models paraded out robotically in a mix of pastels and neutrals that varied between — and sometimes combined — futuristic minimalism and frothy ethereality. » 2/14/14 5:00pm 2/14/14 5:00pm

J. Mendel, for the Frosty Social-Climbing Starlet in You

Despite the copious amounts of fur in the fall 2014 collection from J. Mendel, there's something cold about the designs. Pretty, but not a ton of joie de vivre. That said: If you like filmy gowns and plush coats, this one's for you.

Marchesa: For the Highlands-Prowling Fairy Queen in You

Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig say that their inspiration for Marchesa's fall-winter 2014 line was "our Scottish woman who's a little bit more disheveled in winter, with this static hair like she's running through the fields in the Highlands." Given the pair's penchant for designing opulent, ethereal evening wear,… » 2/13/14 7:50pm 2/13/14 7:50pm

Calvin Klein, for the Depressed Factory-Worker Urchin in You

First the good news: Lupita Nyong'o was at the Calvin Klein show, seated right between Anna Wintour and Naomi Watts. She and Naomi both wore pastels and looked like a pair of Jordan almonds.

Ralph Lauren, for the Olivia Pope on a Fancy Ski Vacation in You
