For those who don't know, LUSH is a fresh, handmade cosmetics company that originated in London several years ago and has now reached cult status. The company is by no means a cult, but when you mention its name, a wide spectrum of people will turn glass eyed and immediately reach for their purse or wallet. In an attempt to bring the loyal lovers of their popular bath bombs and soaps to a heightened frenzy of buyer's lust, co-founder Mark Constantine and resident ... Read More
 Former Bust cover gal and pipe belting  extraordinaire Beth Ditto is bringing a coat of a different color ( and size!) to a closet near you. Made famous for her in your face, electric and kooky stage presence as front woman for dance punk band The Gossip, Ditto proves that she can work the runway just as good as the dance floor.  This week, the collection consisting of 21 pieces featuring skirts,dresses, tops, and even a jacket hit UK based retailer ...

Search "Betty White" on youtube and amidst clips of her referring to Sarah Palin as a "crazy bitch" on Craig Ferguson's show, making fun of the Facebook-mania when she hosted Saturday Night Live, and calling herself a whore on The George Lopez Show, you will now find a recently released promotional video for her clothing line, a collection of t-shirts and hoodies sporting images of Betty's very own face. The clip features White as a far-from-polite fashion ... Read More
This past Tuesday was the Rodarte show. The location was top secret and wasn't revealed to the anyone until Monday morning. A little bird texted me the location (a telegram, a bird song and smoke signals would've take way too long). I made my way over to what I consider one of the best and most important shows during New York fashion week to take some street style photos.  Per usual, larger images here. Anna Dello Russo, Editor of Vogue NipponAnna ...

I’ll admit it’s nearly impossible for me to discuss New York's Fashion Week without a hint of cynicism, but when I stumbled upon the Gothamist’s tribute to Fashion Weeks passed I couldn’t help but drool all over my keyboard. The NYC blog does a virtual time warp as it takes a look back at three memorable decades of fashion: the 1960s, ‘50s and ‘40s, and the couture coveted by women around the world.   As you click through ...

One somewhat unusual event this Fashion Week took place Sunday at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, with the screening of Voula Duval's debut short "The Trophy Wife."  "The Trophy Wife" follows an Upper East Side woman's chance meeting with a "tomboy" music producer, and ends with the two women's new-york-minute romance.   Now I'm fairly new to this whole thing, but it seems to me that short films by first-time directors, not to mention short films by female ...

Some photographs I've snapped while wandering around the Meatpacking district and Soho during Fashion Week. Most of these were taken right outside of Lorick's presentation and the rest near McNally Jackson on Prince street. Per usual, high res images here. That is the amazing ... Read More
Fashion’s Night Out could very well have been called ‘Shoplifting’s Night Out”. There were a million people in every store, all the merchandise was scattered, and the staff was drunk. This technically made for the perfect crime, but we didn’t want to 1. Get caught or 2. Tarnish the rep of FNO, so we kept our hands in our pockets. These boys have their hands on something else to thwart the universal desire to steal eyeliner. That being ... Read More
Fashion’s Night Out is a night of fun filled fashion events taking place in stores around town. I experienced my first FNO last night, in NYC. There was so much happening, and it was all happening at the same time, so it was a good idea to pick one event you really wanted to go to and let anything else just happen. I decided to see Sarah Silverman instead of the Olsen’s judging a karaoke competition, and it is not something I regret. Everyone who was ... Read More

Fashion's Night Out

BY caroline in Style File |

Last night was the Vogue sponsored "Fashion's Night Out," and while I had my immense doubts about FNO stemming from last year's shit show (for a lack of a better phrase) and from the incredibly awkward name (c'mon now, an apostrophe on fashion? How is that easy to say?). I still decided to approach it with an open mind but with a large, large grain of salt. So, I planned my schedule and decided to see how successful this evening was going to be. Bear in mind, the ... Read More
