Vera Wang Gives Guests Bobo Coffee While Waiters Do Dunkin'

With Fashion Week revving up, our fashion blog the Cut stopped into Vera Wang’s Lavender showing at, oddly enough, Bobo. No doubt its French country chairs were comfier than the usual folding variety celebs have to put up with alongside the runway, and guests were treated to Bobo’s freshly brewed coffee.

Scott Boras Out, Cynthia Rodriguez In?

Boras
As we all know, living in the world, hubris never bites people in the ass the way we want it to. Karl Rove left the White House before anything brought him down, people still read Perez Hilton, and Donald Trump still retains the power of speech. But could it possibly be that Scott Boras, the man who thought he was bigger than the World Series, is finally getting thrown from his high horse? Since it was announced last night that A-Rod went back to the negotiating table with the Yankees — alone — everyone's been speculating on what this means for Boras. L.A. Times columnist Bill Shalkin even calls today "Schadenfreude Day" (which is funny, because we thought every day was Schadenfreude Day).

Editors Give Zinczenko Bombast an ‘F’

Skirting the Issue

Full Skirts
Models’ hips may have a circumference smaller than our thighs, but their skirts don't. This spring it’s all about full skirts — the bigger, the better. Vera Wang’s purple-blue skirt is a fresh take on Dior's new look. Behnaz Sarafpour's belted dresses add just enough volume to be sexy — not hippy. Thakoon’s bright-pink skirt ballooned down the runway, making this spring a rare gift to big bottoms.

Five Things We Liked on Friday

Five Things
  • 1. Vera Wang’s beautiful, practically poetic knits: The backs were replaced with panels of sheer, flowing chiffon.
  • 2. Sari Gueron! We loved the bright, Calder-inspired primary-colored tunics and mini-dresses, and jet beading on black seems like just the right amount of shine for evening.

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.
