fashion week Page 1
It’s fashion month, and you’ve learned fast what that means: another day, another flood of style inspiration. While we can all agree that New York and London carried plenty of sartorial clout, we have this inkling that we’ve not yet seen the fashion folk’s top shelf style offerings. And so far, the Italians (and their house guests) are proving us right.
Would you wear a motion-activated sweater?
This might be our favorite moment from Fashion Week so far.
Fashion week is almost upon us. Your Instagram is freaking out about it – the blurry runway shots, the humblebrag selfies and the same-old #regrams from Style.com. One set that has a permanent VIP pass, enviable inner circle, and sneak peek at the clothes before they even hit the runway, are the models. But even the world’s most beautiful people can be guilty of selfie overshare. See below for 13 models, from the street style mavens and party circuit regulars to the ramen guzzlers and beauty bandits, you need to follow before Thursday – and who you’ll actually want to keep following after Fashion Month is all over.
Eating healthy while making sure all your garments are finished, all your runway looks are perfect, and all your models are ready is no easy feat.
….or maybe it won’t.

As much as Fashion Month is all about seeing dreamy clothes on the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, it’s also about the lack thereof. For fall 2013, designers sent out topless, bottomless, and downright naked models, and of course, we have it all right here.
Today, the New York Times Style section ran a story with the headline “Illness Walks the Runway”, and documented the mounting anxiety of the style set about getting sick before or during Fashion Week. While many of the points in the piece make plenty of sense, it was also one of the most ridiculous stories we’ve read in a while.
This Thursday marks the start of the marathon known as New York Fashion Week. And since fashion is always a season ahead, while we’re gearing up for fall, designers will be sending out models in breezy spring looks. We’ve got your first look at the inspirations behind their spring 2013 collections, and a peek at what’ll come strutting down that runway.
Between long days spent running between shows and late nights fêting the industry’s finest, Fashion Week is one time you want to be on your A-game, beauty-wise. Good thing industry veteran Jemma Kidd is here with the inside scoop on how to look your very best all week long! So when those street style cameras start flashing, you won’t need to do the old “hide behind your Ray-Bans” trick.
When Styleite fashion news editor Justin Fenner — who accompanied me to/held my hand through Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2012 Collection event at the Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue last night — asked me what I thought of the show, apparently all I said was that I “kinda liked” it. I have an excuse for being a little dead-brained, though: I’d never been to one of these before. You see, normally I work over on Styleite’s sister site SportsGrid, and my knowledge of the fashion world consists mainly of what Styleite people tell me.
If you were still looking for proof that Fashion Week is one well-funded exercise in public relations, we think we’ve found it for you. Word has it that Stacy Keibler (the woman you maybe knew as a WWE wrestler who is now doing a stint as arm candy for George Clooney) has been offered beaucoup dollars from clothing companies to wear their drag during New York Fashion Week.
Fashion Week’s unlikeliest attendee may very well be Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
If you thought Diane von Furstenberg was going to let the modeling industry get away with putting models who can’t legally drive on her runway, you thought wrong. In a letter sent to people who’ll be involved with Fashion Week this fall, the CFDA president reiterated that no one under 16 will be allowed on the New York runways, and models who are noticeably unhealthy should be dismissed.
Don’t try to schedule a meeting with the renowned editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani — she’s not interested in doing that.
People really like to complain about fashion week. Because it’s so hard! We have to skip meals sometimes. And work long hours! And watch pretty clothes come down a runway on prettier people while even prettier people sit six rows in front of us. Fashion week is hard! But you know who it’s really hard on? The models.
