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 Nippon Anna ...

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
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

MERMAID JEWELRY

BY Bette Bentley in Style File

When I was a little girl, my parents bribed me with the Little Mermaid on VHS as a materialistic means of getting me to stop biting my fingernail to the nubs.  I stopped. I watched.   I guess I'm going through another mermaid phase.  Growing my hair out.  Wearing flowy clothes.  ANYWAY, while in Houston visiting my family I stumbled upon an amazing up-and-coming jewelry designer - Christina Miller. Her pieces are incredible.  All ... Read More
  Ever the art-chameleon, Cindy Sherman gives us a new reason to follow Fashion's Night Out this Friday, September 10th, as Balenciaga's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, hosts the U.S. debut of Cindy Sherman: Untitled (Balenciaga), a series of six images featuring the artist's trademark portraits, dressed exclusively and completely in Balenciaga.  Since 1977, Sherman has been displaying stills of herself transformed into female stereotypes, ...

Fashion week is upon us, and that means a lot of parties, and a lot of outfits! On of my favorite NYC vintage shops, Amarcord, is have a Fashion Night Out party this Friday, and I'll be one of the guest judges for their street style contest! All you have to do is get dolled up in one of your most fashion-y get-ups, stop by the Soho store for a glass of champagne between the hours of 8:45-11pm and have your polaroid taken by one of the lovely shop girls. All the ... Read More
