MoMA's Glenn Lowry Bares All in Dubai

During his keynote address at the United Arab Emirates' Global Art Forum this weekend, Glenn Lowry threw caution — and local Muslim custom — to the wind.

Toxic Wind Blows From Gowanus

Construction in Gowanus blows a fetid wind across the land, babies terrorize Upper East Siders, and Chelsea residents tear apart Barnes & Noble with their bare hands in our daily roundup of neighborhood news.

Basso & Brooke, Gareth Pugh Keep London's Freak Flag Flying

Lacking the big names of New York, Milan, and Paris, London Fashion Week is always about creativity. Once designers make a name there, they can move on to New York, as Preen and Jonathan Saunders have recently done. But aside from spotting future stars, the fun of the week really lies in the fact that "creativity" is often just another word for "freak show."

The Shining

Fall's runways were glittering with more than just A-list celebs. Sequins — which popped up last season — have stuck around for another go.

Check Mate

It seems plaid has finally grown out of its angry flannel phase — unlike your hipster boyfriend. This Fashion Week, grunge's mainstay looks relaxed and fluid.

Bonnie Fuller: She's Just Like Us! Except, You Know, Not

Bonnity
Bonnie Fuller, Star magazine editor, author of The Joys of Much Too Much: Go for the Big Life — The Great Career, The Perfect Guy, and Everything Else You've Ever Wanted, and mother of four, offers a disturbing glimpse into her brain today on the Huffington Post. Turns out it really is just a dusty swirl of celebrities, body issues and ego! Bonnie has been moved by the plight of Britney Spears, she says, but not quite in the way that you might think. She finds Britney's poor parenting skills kind of comforting. Quoth the Fuller:
It's not that I and women like me don't care about the plight of little Sean Preston and Jayden James. We do. Obsessively so. And we're relieved that the unlikely dad of the year, K-Fed, has primary custody. Nevertheless, every time that our girl Brit cluelessly tries to whitestrip her toddler's teeth instead of brushing them or runs a red light with the court-appointed monitor and her two sons all strapped in her car, working moms across the continent can set back our own personal guilt-meters about our mothering skills.
Really, Bonnie? You and "women like you" feel this way? Okay then, mothers of America, please raise your hand if you see celebrity mothers as "guilt-evaporators"; if it has ever once occurred to you to "pat yourself on the back" for not being as bad a mom as Britney Spears. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Oops! Brit Did It Again! (Made Moms Feel Awesome, That Is) [HuffPo]
