At Alexander Wang, Party-Girl Style Stays Simple and Sexy

Aja Mangum, New York's tireless beauty editor, has hit the shows yet again, this time scoping out the hotness backstage at Alexander Wang. According to makeup artist Dick Page, the styling was inspired by "street girls au naturel." No, he didn't mean hooker-chic (damn!), but more the look of a glam gal out on the town. Think textured hair, some "murk in the eye," a bit of bronzer —; and voilà! The show was also styled by former model Erin Wasson, who summed up Dick's work in one word: "amazing." See it to believe it, people.

Catherine McNeil Is Thursday's Top Model

Day two of the shows was a model watcher's dream, and not the pervy kind. Chanel Iman, Sasha Pivovarova, Caroline Trentini and a freshly cropped Freja Beha all strutted their stuff. But the big winner was our new favorite and one to watch, Catherine McNeil. She opened for the Brits at Preen — one of the most buzz-worthy shows this week (hopping the pond will do that for you).

Jennifer Mankins of Bird Likes Rachel Comey, Rag & Bone, and Karen Walker

Throughout the week, New York's biggest buyers will be filling us in on which runway looks they plan to snatch up for spring. Today, Jennifer Mankins, owner of Brooklyn boutique Bird, reveals her potential picks. She's eyeing Rachel Comey's shoes, rag & bone's shirtdresses, and Karen Walker's floral prints.

Padma and Ivana Won't Fugging Speak

Ivana Trump must not be a Top Chef fan. Appearing this morning at Vera Wang (and sans her burnished male escort from yesterday), Ivana sat hip-to-hip with Padma Lakshmi in the front row — yet they never seemed to speak or exchange a glance. Shouldn't they be gabbing about how tall C.J. is or whether somebody could please place a ban on the contestants making tuna tartare?

Spring Gets Hairy

Ladies, let down your hair. Spring's tresses are long, luscious, and just messy enough to be sexy.

Five Things We Liked on Thursday

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.

Ann Watson of Henri Bendel Likes Yigal, Josh Goot, and L.A.M.B.

Throughout the week, New York's biggest buyers will be filling us in on which runway looks they plan to snatch up for spring. Today, Ann Watson, Vice-President, Fashion Director for Henri Bendel has her eye on Yigal Azrouel's pencil skirt, Josh Goot's scuba dresses, and L.A.M.B.'s dresses.

Teri Hatcher Sports a Fuggish Orange Glow

As one might've predicted, the marquee celebrity holding court in the Badgley Mischka front row was Teri Hatcher, America's most desperate housewife and the boys' latest muse. Let's hope Teri liked what she saw, since the entire second half of the show was basically a preview of the flowing gowns she'll be given for parading up and down any red carpet she can find in the coming months. As we only had a glimpse of her profile and the back of her head, all we can report is that she seemed more raven-haired than usual. And a trifle orange.

Spring Runways Belt It Out

The shows have barely gotten started and already one accessory has taken center stage: belts. Next year, expect to pair one with every dress you own, gladiator style.
