Burnin’ Up NYFW: Joe Jonas Named Best Dressed

It seems the former Jo-Bro can dress. Today, British GQ dubbed Joe Jonas “NYFW’s Best-Dressed Man,” which shocked us. First because, man? And second because, Joe Jonas.

But then we checked out his looks. That fresh blue suit, pulled off with plaid and scuffed boots. Those leather jackets. A try at tone-on-tone (our latest obsession). All made, dare we say, effortlessly cool.

Don’t believe us? Check it out in British GQ.

Behind the Scenes We Go: Backstage Beauty at Meskita

From Peter Som to Richard Chai Love, the makeup looks at New York Fashion Week have been all about the eyes. And it was no different at Meskita‘s neoprene-filled runway show last night, where Bobbi Brown’s lead makeup artist, Rogelio Reyna, took the cat-eye to new levels.

“We wanted to go with a 50s-meets-New-York-Barbie look,” Rogelio says, “so we just did flawless-looking skin with an extreme cat-eye.”

His tips for achieving the runway look? “Always follow your natural eye. Start at the corner of your eye, draw a little line up to the crease, do a little triangle, and follow it onto the lid itself. And then, just color within the lines.” Rogelio also recommends using Bobbi Brown’s award-winning long-wear gel eyeliner to keep your cat-eye from smearing.

As for other beauty trends this Fashion Week, Rogelio says it’s all about soft, not-overgroomed brows and a pale, almost-nude lip. Sounds like our fall beauty routines will be pretty easy – once we master this cat-eye, that is.

Behind the Scenes We Go: Backstage at Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano. Today, we know him as Project Runway’s youngest – and most successful – winner. Pieces from his eponymous label can be seen inside the likes of Italian Vogue and all over the red carpet. But before he conquered the fashion world, did you know he was a hairdresser? Fact. And it’s just one of the reasons Sebastian Professional lead hairstylist Anthony Cole wanted to work with the designer on his highly anticipated Fall/Winter 2014 show.

Has Fashion Week Brought Back the Popped Collar?

It looks like the ultra preppy aren’t the only ones rocking the popped collar these days. Thanks to street-style photos by Nam of STREETFSN, we’ve been seeing the trend at both Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks.

Although a popped collar brings the cotton polo shirt to mind, that isn’t what’s happening here. Instead, street-style photos show the collar of a button-front shirt strategically poking out from under a turtleneck sweater or a crewneck sweatshirt with a tied handkerchief.

Is it a clever way of beating the winter chill? Or is it just a passing trend that looks uncomfortably snug around the neckline? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Read more about Fashion Week’s popped-collar trend here.
