    This was the first year that Fashion Week hoopla made its way to the Upper West Side at Lincoln Center, and judging from its expansiveness and ease of navigation, Lincoln Center fits fashion perfectly.

    Check out our shots of the fashionable, the famous (Vogue’s Stephanie LaCava, blogger Susie Bubble and actress Milla Jovovich) and the hangers-on (because fashionableness–real word, I swear– is next to Tom Fordness. Or something).

    We also saw lots of amazing shoes and a guy who looks like Hamish Bowles’ hillbilly cousin.

  • A More Palatable “Meat” Dress: Cuts of Meat Dress

    Posted on September 14th, 2010 Christianna No comments

    Found Lady Gaga’s meat dress at the VMAs queasiness-inducing and less-than-hygienic? Etsy seller I’m Your Present has a cute (and non-rotting) solution: the Cuts of Meat dress! In a non-bloody cream color, with the pieces of meat clearly labeled (rump roast, anyone?), this dress is not only a conversation starter, but will also keep PETA from chasing you down.

    $62 on Etsy.

  • Fashion’s Night Out San Diego Snoozefest

    Posted on September 13th, 2010 Christianna No comments

    As you can see from the previous post, Fashion’s Night Out in NYC was mayhem–people streaming in and out of shops, celebs out of context, and most importantly, endless champagne! Our correspondent in NYC was able to rub elbows (almost) with Karl Lagerfeld, buy cutesy Marc Jacobs accessories out of a truck and generally participate in the NYC-as-a-shopping-block-party festivities.

    Unfortunately, the same or even vaguely similar cannot be said for San Diego, where I was stuck. I had hopes for at least a semblance of what I experienced in NYC the prior year. Not to be had. Based on the Fashion’s Night Out website, Neiman Marcus seemed the most promising, so when my companion and I arrived, we were flummoxed when the woman manning the door informed us we were supposed to RSVP because they were at capacity. Huh? After she didn’t let us in, we changed our strategy and hit up another entrance and acted confused when we weren’t on the RSVP list. After we got in, there were some passed trays and some champagne and a half-hearted fashion show. Snooze.

    What about other shops? How about Henri Bendel or Hermes or Betsey Johnson? We hit them all and no one was there, save for a few cute shop boys in horse heads at Hermes and some mini-cupcakes at Betsey Johnson. Check out the photos below and try not to develop narcolepsy.

    Want a Hermes golden horse balloon?

    A ghost town at Henri Bendel

    It's FASHION Night Out instead of Fashion's Night Out at Henri Bendel. Maybe that was the problem.

    Johnny may hate jazz, but we love this throw-on-over-anything-this-fall cape. With a Southwest geometric pattern, hood and perfect length it’s destined to be our go-to topper for the next few months. (Can you wear capes on Casual Friday?)

  • VIDEO: YSL Manifesto

    Posted on September 9th, 2010 Christianna No comments

    Style.com debuted the YSL Manifesto video today, directed by Inez and Vinoodh and starring a slo-mo Daria Werbowy in a variety of outfits (including an interesting strappy bodysuit/bathing suit).

    The YSL Manifesto (a YSL lookbook in a highly-covetable YSL bag designed by Stefano Pilati) gets distributed to 2000 lucky street folk during New York Fashion Week starting Tuesday, September 14th, then hits international streets of Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Beirut starting September 18th. If you see them being distributed around Lincoln Center, we highly suggest tackling whomever is handing them out. We missed out last year and spent Fashion Week envious (and green is not our color).

  • Attend the Gucci Fashion Show in Milan as an E-Guest via Gucci Connect

    Posted on September 8th, 2010 Christianna No comments

     

     

    Want to attend the Gucci show in Milan, but just can’t squeeze it into your busy schedule? (Never mind they somehow forgot to send you your invite.) Gucci is taking the fashion show live podcast to the next level through Gucci Connect.

    According to the Gucci Connect site:

    Virtual guests receive an e-ticket granting them access to the E-vent as a virtual attendee at Frida Giannini’s Women’s Spring Summer 2011 in Milan on September 22nd, 2010. Gucci Connect E-vent will offer the same guest benefits to virtual guests as Milan event guests with live runway presentation, virtual seating with webcam videos shared at the Gucci show space and social networking opportunities. Through Gucci Connect’s webcam share technology, virtual guests will be mixing with the world’s buyers and press, who attend the seasonal fashion shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris.  

    Gucci e-ticket holders can sign into gucciconnect.com on September 22nd for the E-vent and share their webcam or photo with other virtual guests. Live streaming coverage will offer four different camera angles. Virtual guests can meet other guests worldwide with live guest list, live chat, Facebook Connect and Twitter.

    If you install the Facebook App, you can compete to create the largest group for a chance to become VIP e-guests with VIP virtual seating. The VIP group will be announced on September 20th and will have their webcams projected at the show.

    Might not be EXACTLY like sitting between Rachel Zoe and Carine Roitfeld, but close!

    Not interested in stalking Jessica Simpson at Macy’s or getting help posing for the red carpet (that you will likely never grace) at Henri Bendel from Olivia Palermo on Fashion’s Night Out? Then check out the Non-Fashion People’s Fashion’s Night Out at Partners & Spade where Vena Cava and Subports are selling one-of-a-kind creations handmade by people with no connection to the fashion industry, including a police officer, a toddler, an Oklahoma farmer, some prisoners and designer Lisa Mayock’s dad.

  • The $1500 iPad Case, Courtesy of (Who Else?) Chanel

    Posted on September 7th, 2010 Christianna No comments

    We reported on the Gucci iPad case when it came out, noting that for the price ($230), it was a relative steal and could double as an envelope clutch. Gawker reports that couture houses are jumping on the iPad case bandwagon, with Chanel’s being the priciest at $1,555.

    We don’t know why, but almost anything that Chanel puts out make us weak in the knees, including this iPad case. Never mind that the iPad is a third of the cost of its case, but how’s that different from carrying a designer bag whose contents are not worth much? (Maybe we should take this line of logic to therapy or a money management counselor.)

    Some might see a Chanel iPad case as an ostentatious extravagance–we just see it as another form of quilted Chanel genius.

  • LUST: MTWTFSS Weekday Copper Armour Bracelet

    We ADORE this simple and striking copper armour bracelet from MTWTFSS Weekday. Too bad for us–unless you’re in Scandinavia (or “Scandi” as one of our cute Swedish friends calls it)–you can’t get this, or any of their other fab wares, since they only sell in-store.

  • The Lingerie Department at Walmart Sells Run DMC Tees

    Posted on September 6th, 2010 Christianna No comments

    . . . And Pink Floyd and AC/DC tees. We thought we’d crop out the bras in the back, but we left them there for your enjoyment!

    Who knew? We went to pick up some body wash and unwaxed floss and happened upon these cool burnout sleep tees. With a loose fit and casual v-neck, these “vintage” tees were a steal at only $9. Of course, visions of child labor dance in our heads every time we even contemplate buying something at Walmart (especially since it’s Labor Day today).

    At any rate (and with the disclaimer that we DO NOT support child labor) $9 seems like a helluva deal compared to some over-priced fake vintage rock tees we’ve seen elsewhere.

    And if a tee shirt isn’t enough, you can snag the matching cropped sweats. (You have to admit, they ARE cute for working out.)
