Let’s Talk NYFW: 5 Minutes with The Man Repeller

Confession: I have a major girl crush on The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine. Her quick-witted fashion blog might as well be my home page. So when I ran into her at Wes Gordon’s S/S 2014 runway show yesterday, you can bet I said hi. Here, we talk all things Fashion Week.

Outside the Tents: White-Hot Blazers at Fashion Week

Labor Day, what? This week outside the tents at Lincoln Center, winter-white blazers were popping up everywhere. Bloggers, editors, socialites – all wearing some version of the crisp cream jacket, a look many a magazine predicted we’d see this fall.

Winter White

And the trend’s must-have accessory? Why, a Tide to Go pen, of course.

Behind the Scenes We Go: Backstage Beauty at Korto Momolu

The energy at Fashion Week is palpable. So much thought and creativity goes into each aspect – and there’s no exception for the hairstyles that hit the runways. I was able to get a backstage view of the prep at Korto Momolu‘s show. A designer and Project Runway alum, Momolu’s concept was all about good and evil. And the hair for the show? It was also a combination of sweet and spicy. The highly perched fishtail braid was an unexpected, edgy twist on a girlhood favorite.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We can’t stop talking about (and looking at pictures of) New York Fashion Week. And Pinterest is only perpetuating the problem.

1. With so many people rushing around, it’s important to know who’s who.

2. Runway makeup is reimagined every season.

3. That moment when you realize street style is almost competing with the collections.

4. These shots make us feel so much closer to the front row.

5. Only the best of the best? Don’t mind if we do.

Can’t get enough Pinterest inspiration? Check out past boards that caught our eye.

Behind the Scenes We Go: Backstage Beauty at Christian Siriano

Of course, we love to see the meticulously coiffed and styled model that comes down the runway, but it’s always inspiring to watch what takes place before the music starts and the lights come on.

So, on Saturday afternoon, I headed backstage at the Christian Siriano show held at Eyebeam on West 21st Street in New York. There I met Anthony Cole of Sebastian Professional, who told me about his inspiration for the show’s signature hairstyle – a soft and natural, yet voluminous, ponytail.
