The hair at NYFW was pretty restrained all week–with lots of designers showing simple side parts and effortless, softly waving hair.
But a few shows turned out the old runway tricks–giant, voluminous curls, Heidi braids, eye-catching accessories and some very beautiful details woven in. Here’s a sampling of some of our favorites… More

A few days ago, I reported that with only one day left to sign the landmark International Labor Organization’s Accord on Building and Fire Safety, most American companies were still holding out. Now, the deadline has come and gone, and only two American companies have signed it. More

Thanksgiving is about two things: trying not to argue with your family and eating your face off. Sometimes those overlap!
Oh, Thanksgiving is also about pretty autumn colors like cranberry, pumpkin, wines and plums. Here, we have assembled a gallery of under $300 dresses (with a wide range of prices) that are nice enough for a formal dinner occasion but forgiving enough to account for that delicious third helping of stuffing. Please note that if you’re not embarrassed of your Thanksgiving potbelly, by all means buy a bodycon dress and own it.
For the rest of us–who go a little too overboard–here’s a handy guide to empire waists, generous cuts and shirt dresses with removable belts.

Story time! When we were in sixth grade or around there, two prevailing racist celebrity rumors swept the blacktop with certain frequency: the first was Lauryn Hill saying she’d rather her baby be killed than know “white people buy [her] music” and the second had Tommy Hilfiger saying he wouldn’t be a designer if he’d known black people were going to buy his clothes. Oh, and then there was the one about Lil Kim needing her stomach pumped. More

Leather was all over the Fall 2011 runways this NYFW, but not in its typical outerwear/tough girl trousers incarnation. Instead, leather pieces were shown in an enormous variety: ladylike dresses, pencil skirts, and effortless tanks. After you’re done checking out the gallery and have (hopefully) gotten some good styling ideas, head over to Jennifer‘s round up of leather dresses (that won’t make you look like a biker). More
Now that we’ve come out of our NYFW haze and adequately re-hydrated, we’ve begun the project of sifting through hundreds of images from the runways and attempting to parse what will stick and what won’t for Fall 2011. That said, let me be frank with you: More
People sometimes joke about how everyone in fashion–who doesn’t have girl parts–is gay… which is a pretty lame thing to say about an industry that produces a lot of brilliant work by a lot of talented people, some of whom happen to be gay. But hey, funny story, some of those dudes designing beautiful clothes for women happen to be straight, too! Here’s ten of ‘em and so much for boring generalizations! More
