Moschino Toys Embellished Heavy Wool Knit Dress: I Can’t Bear It

I often get ridiculed by my husband for the fashion trends I adore. I find myself defending the principles of fashion, like they’re First Amendment rights. But here, thanks to a single frivolous piece of clothing, my entire case crumbles…

Met Ball 2015: The Good, the Bad, the Nude, and the Confused

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 Collection

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 Collection: Salute the Successor

My most highly anticipated show of the week did not disappoint. On the contrary, Peter Copping’s debut at the house of Oscar was an elegant affair. To say Mr. Copping has grand shoes to fill is an immense understatement.

Diane von Furstenberg, DKNY, and Thakoon Fall 2015 Collections: Glamorama

Glamour seems to be the theme of New York Fashion Week. From oodles of sequins and sparkles to evening slink by the runway mile, vamps, vixens, and red carpet-ready femme fatales are slated to come out in droves come Fall ’15.

Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment

As a designer, you will for that shining moment, the one when your roar rings louder than any other. Last night produced such an occasion for Prabal Gurung.
