Fashion Week Show-Hopping Wears on Anna and Suzy

For all of Fashion Week's pretty clothes, we're exhausted, and our under-eye circles are kinda ugly. But at least we're not the only ones feeling a bit worn out. "You're running all over town, and nobody's thinking through how much time you spend in a taxi or car," said Vogue queen bee Anna Wintour at Thursday's 3.1 phillip lim show.

The ‘Times’ Notices Something Skinny About Male Models

Skinny Models
Hey, guys, remember when we noticed that male models, starting with the fashion shows in Milan, were surprisingly skinny this year? Well, eventually Guy Trebay noticed, too! He has a whole story in the Times about it today. Now, to our eyes, the models in New York aren't as coltish and sunken-cheeked as they were in Milan. But they are skinnier than usual. Take the normally buff boys of Duckie Brown, for example. Their silhouettes are much narrower this year. For more evidence, click through our slideshows from menswear (and mixed) shows like DKNY, Phillip Lim, and Thom Browne. The Vanishing Point [NYT] Related: The Skinny on Milan's Male Models

At Phillip Lim, We Guess We Can Be Your Fergie?

The tents are a little less A-list-y from nine to five, for obvious reasons: If you're a celebrity, those are the hours during which you sit around in sweatpants, order your assistants to get you coffee, and figure out what the hell you're going to wear when the real action starts at the evening shows. So at times, a person may feel a little celeb-starved (we should note, however, that if you really keep your eyes peeled, famous folk are everywhere; they're just a little less obvious during the day), and this may prompt some bizarre behavior, like what we saw while waiting for this afternoon's 3.1 phillip lim show.

A Designer Explains the Effect of the Writers' Strike on Fashion

Phillip Lim
After the Fug Girls got us thinking about the effect the WGA strike would have on the fashion industry, we caught up with designer Phillip Lim and asked him about it at Repetto's 60th-anniversary party last week. Lim is a well liked, quickly rising designer who has been showing since fall 2005, and is therefore a good example of a designer who is established but by no means on as stable ground as any of the giant houses that have been around for much longer. So what does he think about the strike, which is appearing to affect more and more people as time goes on? "It's about how it trickles down to retailers, how it trickles down to restaurants, how it trickles down to the community," said the bubbly Lim. "They've got to work it out and get on with it. It's almost selfish to just keep on with the struggle." So if it affects everybody, it must be affecting Lim himself, right? "For us, we have a distribution in Los Angeles. Our stores, people we sell to, they're affected by it. So in the end it affects us." And the loss of award shows? "[A presence on the red carpet] boosts business, but we didn't build our business on that premise, so in the end it doesn't hurt us a ton," Lim explained. "We make clothes for the 'everywoman,' you know." Still, we're guessing some other, more gown-oriented designers (Marchesa, much?) would have killed for the opportunity to dress Keira Knightley last Sunday…—Jada Yuan Earlier: No Golden Globes?
