NYFW Spring 2013 Page 1
Lynn Tesoro, the unfortunate publicist who got smacked in the face by an editor just prior to Zac Posen‘s spring 2013 show, has filed a new lawsuit against the women who attacked her.
Lest you think that anyone with an IMDb page and a couple of big name parents can land themselves a front row seat at New York Fashion Week (let alone get paid for it), let the case of Mamie Gummer prove otherwise.
While it was certainly fun to spot celebs and Olympians at New York Fashion Week, deep down inside, we knew that they were being paid a hefty sum just to sit in the front row.
And now Cathy Horyn‘s boyfriend Art Ortenberg has thrown himself into the Oscar de la Renta/Horyn fray. What started out as a simple review that was lost in translation has turned into a much bigger deal.
We all know the best part of fashion week is the street style, and that’s why we’ve teamed up with our favorite (and most exquisitely curated!) e-commerce store, Shoptiques, to give one lucky reader a $1000 shopping spree, complete with personal styling from the unbelievably chic ladies behind the site.
Also: models are “hungry” and the whole industry is idle, ignorant, and vain. Happy Tuesday!
Oscar de la Renta and Cathy Horyn made headlines last week with their verbal squabble. In her somewhat mixed review, the New York Times‘ critic referred to him a “hot dog”. De la Renta didn’t take it well, so he took out a full-page ad in Women’s Wear Daily, and fired back with an open letter in which he slammed the writer for being unprofessional, and called her a “a stale 3-day old hamburger”.
For all the intense pressure, heated arguments, and hot young things we’ve seen over the past eight days, we kind of expected New York Fashion Week to go out with a bang. Instead, it went out with a night spent watching Lady Gaga get tattooed inside a giant bottle of her new perfume, “Fame.”
Kelly Osbourne‘s dabbled in design before, and now, the (currently) purple-haired celeb is branching out to do her own line.
From her mother’s narrow escape at Auschwitz to why she would never date a lawyer, here are a few things you should know about the inimitable Diane von Furstenberg.
Just when we thought that New York Fashion Week was over and behind us, a verbal feud has broken out between designer Oscar de la Renta and New York Times writer Cathy Horyn. While the most recent development occurred just this morning, it seems like this was a year in the making.
Cynthia Rowley showed her spring 2013 collection in an old, abandoned space on Lower Manhattan’s Beekman Street Thursday night. There were exposed walls and scaffolding, and multicolored confetti rained down from the sun roof several stories above, dotted the floor, and resembled the aftermath of some crazy beach party.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian spoiled us with not one, but two Kimye appearances at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday. Lucky us?
Let this be a lesson to all you would-be sucker punchers at New York Fashion Week: don’t sock a publicist at her fashion show and expect her not to hit back.
Anna Sui is known for her cute, whimsical, and often musically-influenced wares — and for never taking fashion too seriously. Yesterday evening, she stayed true to her canon with a collection of sweet and punk ensembles inspired by French antique dealer and interior decorator Madeleine Castaing and 1970s punk scene. Did she know about the Met Costume Institute‘s upcoming exhibit beforehand?
On Sunday, Diane von Furstenberg unveiled her collaboration with Google on the runway: glasses that would film exactly what the wearer was seeing. The Google Glass technology sounded cool, but we honestly had no idea what to expect.
Ok, we know we said that the glow-in-the-dark dresses at Alexander Wang were the highlight of our New York Fashion Week, but Oscar de la Renta‘s first-ever kid’s show definitely gave those show-stopping specimens a run for their money.
There were a lot of things to love about Ralph Lauren‘s spring 2013 runway show Thursday morning — the matador-inspired jackets, Karlie Kloss‘ inimitable smize (sorry, Tyra), the civilized buzz that has come to define the week’s closing show for us — but the top honor goes to the moment Ryan Lochte stroked, nay, groped Anna Wintour‘s bare leg.
As much as fashion shows are allegedly about the clothing, sometimes the front row takes center stage. Case in point: at yesterday afternoon’s Milly by Michelle Smith spring 2013 show, Ryan Lochte was all everyone could talk about and look at. While the Olympian wasn’t doing interviews like at previous shows, he was taking pictures with fashion folk and adoring fans. Do we even have to point out that we shamelessly snapped a photo with him? Because yeah, that happened.
For spring 2013, Rachel Roy wanted “a whimsical balance created through a mix of enchanted prints and electric color for spring”. The result was silky suits in bright hues and prints, henly shirt-style dresses with accordion pleats, figure-flattering dresses, and leg-lengthening bottoms. We caught up with the designer, who gave us a glimpse into the to-die-for accessories, and revealed how she decompresses after the craziness that is New York Fashion Week.
