Fashion Blogs We Like

Bloggers are working Fashion Week almost as hard as the designers, frantically publishing runway videos, podcasts, and handbag critiques.

Volume: The Golden Ticket

Designers clearly had Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory on demand this season: Oompa-Loompa-inspired dresses — loads of volume at the hip and nipped in at the legs — are prevalent on the runway.

Fashion Façade Falters at Brian Reyes

For those of us who communicate via hand gestures and scrunched faces, Fashion Week is a real exercise in restraint. Thank God for actress Tracee Ellis Ross, whose enthusiasm broke the mold at this morning's Brian Reyes show.

Stars Skip Sunbonnets, Ruffled Diapers

If there's one thing we've learned in our two days of roaming Bryant Park, it's that there is no such thing as "Hurry up, the show starts in 30 seconds." Our evening began with a 6 p.m. Karen Walker show, her first-ever U.S. presentation. Now, when neither of you is a local and one of you was born without a sense of direction, it's best if the other is not terribly trusting. Sadly, that's not the case.

Waistlines: Going Up

Your panties may be pretty, but next season they're going undercover. Designers are hiking waistlines practically up to the neck. Rachel Roy offered belted ivory silk skirts while Verrier's ruffled number stopped just short of the ribs. United Bamboo's sailor-buttoned black skirt aims high but has a loose fit, so you can breathe even though you're covered up.

Braving Baby Phat

So far, our sojourn here at Fashion Week has been fun and fascinating and, surprisingly, pretty organized. But no more. The Baby Phat show was a total mob scene — literally: A fight broke out in the front rows while we were waiting for the show to start. Admittedly, after standing in line in the lobby for what felt like about ten years (fine, it was probably more like 45 minutes), we felt a little violent, too. Especially when we realized we were going to be suffering the slings and arrows of Standing Room Only Seating.

Baby Phight!

It was a harried day for 50 Cent. He spent the afternoon in the Midtown South precinct house after being pulled over for a traffic violation. He got out in time for the Baby Phat show, only to wait around an hour for it to actually begin. And then he got in a fight with another show-goer.

The View From the Front Row

1) Wow, we are in the front row — and not to be dorks, but it completely rules! 2) Pre-med majors would do well to sit here for anatomy class; one sheer red Felder Felder dress in particular gave us a clear view of all the model's reproductive organs and their nearby friends. 3) Is that... that's not Bruce Dern in the second row, is it?
