Jennifer Missoni, Sophia Bush Backstage at Catherine Malandrino
New York fashion correspondent Fabiola Beracasa took our cameras backstage at Catherine Malandrino today. At just one show, Fabiola gets her hair done, spies someone wearing her dress (scandalous!), talks politics with Jennifer Missoni, chats with Sophia Bush from One Tree Hill, and learns about the designer's love for the color green. Watch the video to see the mayhem. Backstage: Fabiola Beracasa at Catherine Malandrino [NYM Video]
Five Things We Liked Over the Weekend
Throughout the week, New York's Harriet Mays Powell and Amy Larocca are hitting the tents, reporting back to us daily with news of what's catching their discerning eyes.
- 1. Cashmere City! Denis Colomb added Mongolia and Tibet to his travels, and the resulting wraps, sweaters, and scarves are hyperfantastic.
Betsey Johnson's Errant Shoe Puts Joan Jett in Danger
Usually by this point in Fashion Week, we're so tired that we start hallucinating celebrities everywhere we look. While this would be divine if we were having visions of Matt Damon, instead there was a split second in which we were convinced we saw Kenneth Branagh wandering around aimlessly in a full-length man mink (strike one), and we thought this one short dude at Carolina Herrera was Lucy Liu (strike two, and we're sorry about that gender mix-up, Lucy).

Recent Fashion Grad Wants Wintour's Help
Recent FIT graduate Javier Cruz is on the prowl for Anna Wintour at Fashion Week. “Help me like you helped Proenza Schouler,” he would plead if he saw her. To catch the editor’s eye, Cruz relies on his equestrian influences and an ascot. See if he’ll pass muster with Wintour by watching the Video Look Book. Video Look Book: Javier Cruz
Oscar Starts on Time; André Leon Talley Forced to STAND!
When we spilled out of our cab two blocks from Oscar de la Renta's show at the Third Church of Christ Science on Monday afternoon, approximately twenty minutes after the time on the invite (and therefore at least ten to fifteen minutes before the show realistically should have started), and spotted two women we recognized as front-row industry types running toward the venue, we knew we were screwed.
DKNY Stops at Nothing to Encourage Environmentally Friendly Transportation
On Friday night, DKNY chained neon-orange painted bikes to signposts around Bryant Park and Chelsea, in an effort to encourage us to consider environmentally friendly forms of transportation this Fashion Week.
The hemline on the miniskirt is changing again. And since they can’t get any shorter (or can they?), they’re getting fuller this time with a bubble hem. Costello Tagliapietra gathered her hem on a dip-dye skirt; Donna Karan added a briochelike touch to several pattern dresses; and Hervé Léger used the bubble hem to deviate from a collection of second-skin dresses. Feeling bubbly yet?
Tyra Takes Her Claws to Karlie Kloss
Tim Gunn Doesn't Make It Work in This Weather
Listen, we think she seems great and all, but how on earth has Sophia Bush managed to get invited to shows all over town this season? Either she has frighteningly effective people working for her or she's cashing in on one of the several hundred karmic IOUs she earned during those months she had to spend married to the king of the asshats, Chad Michael Murray.
Angie Harmon Has Her Own Hair Wrangler
For a celebrity at Fashion Week, it doesn't really matter WHY you're there; if the camera catches you with a hair out of place, that's pretty much all anyone will remember. Clever Angie Harmon clearly knows this, as the second she took her seat at Carolina Herrera, a stylist type blocked her face long enough to fluff and arrange her black locks flatteringly around her face.
Rugby Ralph Lauren Designer Beats on Her Miu Miu Bag
Rugby Ralph Lauren designer Cecilia Bien wears her own designs to Fashion Week look for her jacket in stores come spring. Bien confesses that she’s rougher with her Miu Miu bag than she ought to be but swears she’s “giving it personality!” See what else Bien fashioned for herself by watching the Video Look Book.

Super Bowl Reduces Tuleh to a Ghost Town
When we saw Nigel Barker Saturday after Sass & Bide, he was cheerfully fielding questions from reporters from Us Weekly and Life & Style and posing for nearly a dozen pictures. You know, the usual Nigel Barker scene.
Chloë and Milla Not Exactly Fans of Miss Sixty
Anne Hathaway recently claimed on this very blog that she probably wouldn't be attending any fashion shows on Sunday because she would be nursing her father back to health after a ski accident. Well, we're here to tell you that SHE LIED.
Ellen Pompeo Actually Not Unpleasant at Y-3
Early buzz had it that the Y-3 show would take place on ice, and in true Carrie Bradshaw fashion, we had to wonder: Is the company trying to kill its models?
Sleek Lines and Silhouettes at Jonathan Saunders
Jonathan Saunders is a minimalist, exactly — there are too many accordion pleats, too many bits of trim for that. But he designs with an economy of line and silhouette that calls to mind the work of master minimalists Calvin Klein and Jil Sander.
