Disney Villains and The Blonds Join Forces for Runway Show

DISNEY’S MOST WICKED HIT THE RUNWAY: Some of Disney’s most wicked characters will be taking center stage during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 7. Luxury fashion brand The Blonds will present their spring 2019 runway collection at Spring Studios, inspired by several of Disney’s most devilish characters.
The Blonds, cofounded by designer Phillipe Blond and creative director David Blond, will feature looks inspired by Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Evil Queen, The Queen of Hearts, Dr. Facillier, Ursula and her dark eel minions Flotsam and Jetsam.

The Blonds team up with Disney Villains for its runway show Sept. 7. 

“The Disney Villains style is iconic and has inspired us since childhood and throughout our career. The opportunity to collaborate with Disney and see these designs come to life on The Blonds runway is an absolute dream come true,” said Phillipe Blond.
“What drew us to working with Disney Villains are the complex attributes of the characters themselves,” said David Blond. “Often misunderstood, Disney Villains are flawed, imposing and mysterious, and we loved the idea of taking these characteristics and translating them in a glamorous way, making them the heroes of our story.”
Ken Potrock, president, consumer products and commercialization at Disney, said, “Disney Villains have long lived

Agnona Runway Show to Be Included on Official Milan Fashion Week Calendar

OFFICIAL SLOT: Following a few seasons of presentations and intimate shows, Agnona is making its first appearance among the brands listed by the Italian fashion chamber on September’s Milan Fashion Week official schedule, which Camera della Moda is releasing on Friday.
“It’s a formalization of what we have been doing in the next couple of years, since I joined the brand,” said Simon Holloway, which was tapped by the label’s parent Ermenegildo Zegna Group as Agnona creative director in November 2015. “I’m very happy Agnona is finally on the calendar, which is something the brand deserves, being a champion of the most authentic Made in Italy. Milan is such an incredible family of exciting and diverse brands.”
Holloway said the brand, which will show its spring 2019 collection on Sept. 22 at Milan’s Triennale design museum, is not hosting any mega events, instead keeping it small and intimate.
As part of the company’s retail expansion plan, last May Agnona inaugurated its first store in London, on Albemarle Street in the Mayfair neighborhood, and is opening a flagship in Moscow next fall.

Rodarte to Return to New York Runway

After showing in Paris the last few seasons, Rodarte is returning to the New York show schedule. The designers revealed the news on Instagram Monday night, saying, “We are excited to announce we will be showing our SS19 collection during NYC Fashion Week! We are thrilled to create the show with our amazing team: Brian Phillips and Black Frame, Alex de Betak and Bureau Betak, IMG and our beauty and hair teams: James Kaliardos using NARS Cosmetics, Odile Gilbert for TRESemmé hair.”
Phillips told WWD that the show is planned Sunday, Sept. 9 but a location hasn’t been determined yet. For the last three seasons, Rodarte has been showing in Paris, once in a runway setting and the other two times with showroom appointments. “They’re excited to be back,” said Phillips.
Rodarte, the Los Angeles-based label designed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, decided against showing at Paris Couture Week this month. For fall 2018, the designers showed their collection in Paris via a portrait portfolio featuring some of the women who inspire them.

EXCLUSIVE: VFiles Announces Runway 10 Show, Mentor Committee for New York Fashion Week

It’s back to the runway for VFiles, which will be holding its 10th show on Sept. 5.
Last season, instead of the traditional runway/performance extravaganza the company hosts, it staged “Be Heart, Make Noise,” an immersive music and fashion event done in collaboration with Adidas Originals. In the past, runway shows included celebrity guest judges such as Khloé Kardashian and Young Thug. For VFiles Runway 10, the brand is bringing its event a bit more down to earth by, for the first time, appointing a committee of eight industry leaders that will select and mentor show contestants throughout their journey to New York Fashion Week. After that, the VFiles team will provide mentorship for the following season. The pivot brings a slightly more serious — yet welcome — tone to the show that has otherwise been high on experimental fashion.
The mentor committee includes: Julie Anne Quay, founder and chief executive officer of VFiles; Laura Brown, editor in chief of InStyle magazine; Rio Uribe, designer and founder of Gypsy Sport; Candy Pratts Price, fashion consultant; Anna Trevelyan, stylist and creative consultant; Erin Magee, founder of MadeMe; Paul Cupo, designer, and James Costas-Michael, merchandise director of VFiles.

Frankies Bikinis to Launch RTW During L.A. Runway Show

Frankies Bikinis, the Los Angeles-based contemporary swimwear line founded five years ago by then-18-year-old Malibu native Frankie Aiello, is branching out into ready-to-wear. The collection will debut alongside Frankies’ resort 2019 swim collection during a runway show in L.A. on June 21.
Aiello, now 23, said she chose to forgo showing at Miami Swim Week, which she has done for the past four years. “I feel like at this point I could show in Miami with my eyes closed. Now was the time to bring it back to my hometown and do something different,” she said. (Another 18-year-old designer, Gigi Caruso, will make her Miami Swim runway debut this year.)

The designer believes there are few rules to follow in fashion anymore, which is also the idea behind her rtw collection. “I cringe when I hear the words ‘beach cover-up.’ We wanted to detach ourselves from that and create a new era of cover-ups.”
Social media, she said, has enabled customers to reach her directly asking for styling advice on how to wear their swimsuits both on and off the beach.

Emporio Armani to Host Coed Runway Show in September

MILAN — Emporio Armani is the latest Italian brand to opt for a coed show.
As Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana president Carlo Capasa revealed during a press conference on Thursday presenting the schedule of the upcoming Milan Men’s Fashion Week, the fashion label will skip its traditional men’s fashion show in June to host a coed runway show in September during the city’s Women’s Fashion Week. The coed show won’t take place at Giorgio Armani’s theater on Via Bergognone, as per tradition, but in a still-undisclosed location. That said, the signature Giorgio Armani men’s show will be held on June 18 at the theater.
Separately, Furla said on Thursday it will also stage a coed presentation in September.
While Emporio Armani joins the likes of Gucci and Bottega Veneta, for example, Capasa announced new entries in the June calendar including London-based Besfxxk and Italian label Vìen. Korean fashion house Spyder, French brand Ih Nom Uh Nit and Italian fashion houses Doucal’s and Triple RRR, the line designed by Roberto Cavalli’s son Robert. Diesel Black Gold will not hold a show, but will present its spring collection to retailers, while the second Diesel Red Tag capsule collection will be unveiled on the catwalk. As reported, according to market sources, Diesel founder Renzo Rosso

Michael Kors FINALLY Put A Plus-Size Model On The Runway

Young designers including Prabal Gurung and Christian Siriano have been rightfully praised for their commitment to diversity, most recently at New York Fashion Week. But an industry veteran has us convinced more than ever that change is finally here. 

Michael Kors included a plus-size model in his runway show Wednesday, marking the first time he’s cast a woman above size 12 at Fashion Week since he launched his line in 1981. Ashley Graham, arguably today’s most well-known plus-size supermodel, did the honors. 

Kors is now one of the most universally known and famous designers to make this bold statement of inclusion on the runway. His industry peers are still very much steeped in outdated standards of beauty, which is what makes his decision so important.

But really, if anyone on his level was going to make the first move, it makes sense that it was Kors: He’s one of the few major fashion designers who actually offers variations of his clothing in extended sizes. The move also makes good on a desire he expressed way back in 2013 for more diversity on the runway

“I don’t like it when the models all look the same,” he said at the time. “To me it’s so incredibly boring to turn them into mannequins, it’s so much more interesting if we have different ages, ethnicities, body types, heights.” 

For Graham, it was one hell of a way to wrap up another big week. She makes a repeat appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue released Wednesday, and the day before that, she was revealed as the face of Prabal Gurung’s new collection with Lane Bryant.

She shared her excitement about this major moment on Instagram, writing, “MICHAEL MICHAEL MICHAEL!!! Thank you for the opportunity and showing that beauty comes in many different forms!!” 

MICHAEL MICHAEL MICHAEL!!! Thank you for the opportunity and showing that beauty comes in many different forms!! #michaelkors #nyfw

A post shared by A S H L E Y G R A H A M (@theashleygraham) on

This shift in the paradigm is an exciting look forward ― and hopefully a message to all designers that inclusion is the new normal.

Brandon Maxwell on Gaga at the Super Bowl, Family Values and Fear of Watching His Runway Show

Anyone who was at Brandon Maxwell’s spring 2017 show at the Russian Tea Room remembers Riley Montana, the model who gleefully shimmied and twirled down his runway. If she caught the audience’s eye, she made a big impression on Maxwell, too, who refuses to watch his own runway show out of “panic.” “I knew she did it to make me smile,” he said.
In conceptualizing his second campaign, he wanted to capture the spirit of family and how important it is to stay close to your roots, even when your life changes significantly — like Maxwell, who’s from a small town in Texas. He chose to shoot Montana in her childhood home in Detroit with members of her family, including her aunt who raised her and her sister who had just had a baby. In one shot, she’s sitting on the sofa next to a TV that’s playing her runway moment in Maxwell’s last show. In another shot, she’s sashaying through the living room while her family looks on. “They’re so proud of her,” Maxwell said.

‘Project Runway: Junior’ Adds Butter London as Makeup Sponsor

Butter London is embracing creative kids.
The beauty brand has signed on as the makeup sponsor for the second season of “Project Runway: Junior.” The winner of the show will get a chance to collaborate with Butter London on a limited-edition nail and lip collection, and receive a year’s worth of its products.
Even before the winner is chosen, the brand will be spotlighted in a specific challenge and will more generally be integrated into each of the show’s 10 episodes, during which teen fashion designer contestants will work with makeup artist Scott Patric on runway beauty. “Butter London’s bright, vivid lipsticks make the ‘Project Runway: Junior’ designs come alive,” said Patric.
Mostly known for its nail polishes, Butter London’s appearance on “Project Runway: Junior” could help bring exposure to its makeup offerings, including lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner, eye shadows, eye liner, mascara and brow items. The show will feature a fully branded Butter London beauty room.
Its second season on Lifetime, kicking off Dec. 22, will see the return of host Hannah Jeter and cohost Tim Gunn as well as celebrity judges Kelly Osbourne, Christian Siriano and Aya Kanai, executive fashion director at Seventeen and Cosmopolitan.

Nazr Mohammed, Mike Magee, Joe Minoso Walk the Runway in Chicago

FOR A CAUSE: It’s not every day that pro athletes share the runway with TV personalities, philanthropists, socialites and even kids, but that was the case at the 89th annual Woman’s Board of Rush University Fashion Show last Thursday at Morgan Manufacturing in Chicago’s West Loop. Wearing looks from retailers like Chalk, P. 45, Neapolitan Collection and auctioneer Leslie Hindman, models included Chicago Bulls’ Nazr Mohammed; former Chicago Bear Hunter Hillenmeyer; Chicago Fire soccer player Mike Magee; “Chicago Fire” TV star Joe Minoso; Brittney Payton of WGN’s “Chicago’s Best”; Sarah Spain of ESPN Radio and other leading Chicagoans.
“This annual fundraising event is about fashion bringing together members of our community to raise money for cancer treatment,” said Sarah Bogan, fashion show chair. “It was great to see the families and friends of our models cheer them on as they walked the runway.”
About $ 500,000 was raised to support Bioinformatics, which combines the latest in computer science, statistics and mathematics with medical research for individualized cancer treatment. This was the fifth year of the Woman’s Board’s five-year commitment to raise $ 2.5 million for the Rush Cancer Center. Considered the longest running charitable fashion show in the country, the Woman’s Board Fashion Show

The 10 Best Looks From Alexander Wang’s Last Collection for Balenciaga (Plus, Zoe Kravitz on the Runway)

The moment has come. Earlier this evening Alexander Wang took his last bow at Balenciaga as the house’s creative director. Wang’s final show was one of the most anticipated collections of the Paris Fashion Week spring 2016 season. But instead of going out with fireworks, the California-born Wang sent out a quietly exquisite collection of all-white clothes, set to a ’90s rap soundtrack of Notorious B.I.G.’s Going Back to Cali and Snoop Dogg’s Nuthin but a G Thang. The soundtrack alluded to his departure from Paris with this last Balenciaga show and that it’s back to the States for the New York-based designer.

While the collection was feminine and diaphanous from afar, a closer look will show you that subtle touches of Wang’s street style aesthetic are everywhere. Overalls in silk duchesse, flat mules in Chantilly lace, and drop crotch pants were interspersed between the siren gowns, for which the esteemed house of Balenciaga is known. Last, but certainly not least, Wang’s friend and supporter Zoe Kravitz took to the runway in a transparent lace dress in support of Wang’s big show.

And, in a touching final moment, the vivacious Wang took his biannual jaunt down the runway, skipping, running, twirling and taking selfies during a long and emotional bow. Here are our favorite looks from the collection:

‘Project Runway Junior’ to Feature Michelle Obama Cameo and Lands’ End Challenge

Always up for a challenge, First Lady Michelle Obama will help Lands’ End put the word out about its own challenge that is set for the new Lifetime show “Project Runway Junior.”
FLOTUS will appear in a video during the Dec. 10 episode of the show to let viewers know that the Lands’ End initiative will benefit Let Girls Learn, a government-wide initiative aimed at the 62 million girls around the world who are not currently in school. The effort, which includes a tie-in to the Peace Corps, strives to help teenage girls go to and stay in school.
Ranging in age from 14 to 17, “Project Runway Junior’s” 12 contestants will be vying for the chance to design an item that will be sold via Lands’ End’s Web site. This season’s winner will go home with a scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, a Brother-provided work studio, a Seventeen magazine feature and a $ 25,000 cash prize to help launch their collection.
The First Lady has traveled around the globe to promote Let Girls Learn as well as other initiatives that help groom motivated, well-educated and healthy children. In addition to her Let’s Move and Let’s Read

Jeremy Scott Teams With Melissa on Runway Show Shoes

MAN MADE: If the music at Jeremy Scott’s forthcoming runway show in New York comes blaring from the speakers singing, “Life in plastic, it’s fantastic” — the infamous lyrics from Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” — it wouldn’t be without good reason. That’s because at Scott’s Sept. 14 show, models’ feet will be bound in plastic shoes — designed in collaboration between Scott and Brazilian plastic footwear brand Melissa.
Scott — who will make his fashion week appearance straight off a noted involvement with MTV’s Video Music Awards — designed two Melissa-produced shoes for his spring show. Further information regarding their make, appearance and retail availability could not be learned.
In teaming with Melissa, Scott joins the Brazilian brand’s past collaborators including Vivienne Westwood and Karl Lagerfeld.

Hot Off the Runway: Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall

If you want to be on the cutting edge of fashion for fall, don’t look to shop windows, look to the future! As I often tell my clients, if you see it in stores, it’s already out, which is why I keep an eye on global trend forecasts. This week at MAGIC, the semiannual fashion trade show in Las Vegas, I soaked up the latest in men’s and women’s lifestyle and apparel trends, color trends, and much, much more.

In a seminar led by Melissa Moylan, Creative Director of Womenswear at FashionSnoops (a trend forecasting agency), I got the scoop on global trends for gals next year (fall/winter ’16-17). So if you’re a buyer, a designer, or a forward-thinking fashionista, read on! FashionSnoops identified four major up-and-coming trend stories for fall: Method + Madness, Weekender, Raven, and Varsity Daze. And while each of these distinct trends is uniquely inspired, they do share some common elements–colors, fabrics, silhouettes, and details–you can look out for regardless of your affinity for any particular trend.

COLOR

Hues predicted to be popular for winter come from an earthy and warm, yet bold, color palette. Neutrals such as Ivory, Biscuit, Flax, Camel, Toffee, and Dust Grey form a supple base for the richer, more vibrant colors in the Fall ’16 color story.

Vintage hues and jewel tones also play an important role across global trend forecasts with colors like Forest, Navy, Plum, Crimson, Scarlet Fever (a bright, orange-based red) and Roast (a chocolatey espresso brown) laying a foundation of deep undertones.

Mid-tones and accent colors include Olive, Pea, Marigold, Tangerine, Cyan, Teal, and Indigo, along with my personal favorites (for their freshness): Baby Blue, Rose Taupe, Bronze, and Lavender Grey.

SILHOUETTE

The key silhouettes to look out for in ladies’ fall fashion are A-line skirts and dresses (in both mid-lengths and floor dusters), culottes, and wide-leg pants. Also predicted to turn heads are turtlenecks and mock turtlenecks, as well as oversized sweaters, blanket coats, and floor-length overcoats.

FABRIC

According to the forecast, textiles such as boiled and compressed wools, twills, tweeds, and chunky knits will keep you both stylish and warm when the weather start to cool. On the softer side, sheer satin, chiffon, cozy cashmere, and plush, teddy-bear-like fabrics (think: wearable Ted) will be white-hot for winter.

DETAILS & ACCESSORIES

Already dangling in your favorite boutiques, suede fringe will continue to play a prominent role in apparel and accessories. (Ladies, it’s time to let your inner cowgirl lose!) Lace and laser cut-outs are two details also forecasted to remain strong. Keep an eye out for vintage-y patches and appliqués; think old-school letterman jackets and sweaters, along with team pennants and athletic patches. In a nod to handicraft, big buttons, quilting, and patchwork will also be popular, while updated ditsies, graphics, and photography will spice up patterns and prints. As for footwear, the wedge bootie is predicted to give your seasonal style a kick!

So if you want your winter wardrobe to weather more than just one season–while still being on the forefront of fashion–start stocking your closet now with vintage-inspired colors and details; cozy, oversized knits; and cowgirl-meets-Little-House-on-the-Prairie fabrics and accessories.

Misha Nonoo Forgoes Runway Show for Instagram Presentation

DIVING INTO DIGITAL: Misha Nonoo’s brand will skip a traditional runway format this upcoming spring 2016 show season. Instead, the label will hold a “digital-only” presentation. The brand says that it will leverage Instagram to present its new designs.
Nonoo was not available for comment, as she is presently traveling abroad. Her spokesperson was unable to make an official statement in Nonoo’s absence, but did confirm that while additional details for the presentation are unavailable — the brand will indeed present a “full collection” online.
Misha Nonoo debuted her namesake label in fall 2011. It has since been nominated for a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award and the Woolmark Prize. The brand’s studio is currently a participant in the CFDA’s “Incubator” studio space.

Looking Back: Alexander McQueen’s ‘Highland Rape’ 1995 Runway

Designers from Vivienne Westwood to Oscar de la Renta and Isaac Mizrahi have long mined Scottish tartans for inspiration. But perhaps none is more closely associated with the theme than Alexander McQueen, who broke out with his seminal “Highland Rape” collection in 1995 and reprised it for fall 2006 with his “Widows of Culloden” effort, which he described as “very ‘Macbeth.’” WWD called it “a moment” that lived up to the hype — “fabulously creative and achingly wearable.” Afterward, McQueen said, “I wanted to show a more poetic side to my work….I find beauty in melancholy.”

This Runway Collection Is Giving Us Major Game of Thrones Vibes

Tonight’s Valentino fall 2015 couture collection reminded us that winter is coming.

The show, which took place in Rome, featured regal, moody looks that just screamed Game of Thrones. While it hasn’t been confirmed that designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are GoT fans, we bet that Cersei, Sansa, Margaery and Daenarys would totally be fans of them. We took the liberty of suggesting gowns from the collection for each of the leading ladies in anticipation of season six.

1. Cersei
Valentino-couture-fall-2015-cersei

Last time we checked in with Cersei, she came back to the palace and she was pretty angry. This embellished gown in emerald and black with feather detail says: “I’m the ruler and I’m gorgeous—now, off with his head!”

2. Margaery
valentino-couture-margaery

Prison could never stop Margaery of the House Tyrell (and reigning queen!) from being stylish and sexy. This quintessential Margaery silhouette with plunging neckline is more somber than the usual, but no less fetching.

3. Sansa
valentino-couture-sansa

Little Sansa is growing up. Do they have sweet sixteen parties in the North? If so, she would look divine in this lace number.

4. Daenaerys
valentino-couture-fall-2015

The Mother of Dragons could always use another cape. And look! This one has a gold embroidery of her baby! How sweet.

RJ Mitte (A.K.A. Walt Jr. of Breaking Bad) Is Now a Runway Model

Yes, you read that correctly. RJ Mitte, the actor who played Walt Jr./Flynn, the meek son of drug kingpin Walter White on Breaking Bad, made his runway modeling debut at the Vivienne Westwood menswear show in Milan over the weekend. Note: These images are slightly NSFW.

walt-jr-vivienne-westwood2

Mitte, who is signed with Elite London, a UK model agency, opened and closed the Vivienne Westwood show sporting what looks like a literal breastplate in one look.

walt-jr-vivienne-westwood1

But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Mitte transform from regular ol’ actor to smokeshow model. Last year the 22-year-old, who similar to his television character has a mild case of cerebral palsy, starred in an ad campaign for the Gap shot by photographer David Sims.

Well, if the he doesn’t get back into acting, we now know why!

Gisele Might Not Be Retiring From the Runway After All

23-100-best-hairstyle-gisele-bundchen-beachy-waves

After days of frenzied coverage of what was widely reported to be Gisele’s final runway show, her longtime agent confirmed to The New York Times that the supermodel’s “final” show in Sao Paolo, Brazil, was not, in fact, her last. Instead, it seems, she will only be closing the chapter on her catwalking days in Brazil.

Anne Nelson, Bundchen’s longtime agent at IMG Models told The Times that the 34-year-old stunner Times would be “clos[ing] the chapter on the Brazilian runway…It is important that we continue to work on all kinds of capacities within the fashion industry.”

News of Bundchen’s runway retirement has been plastered over thousands of Web Sites and news outlets across the globe ever since the supermodel told a Brazilian newspaper that she was quitting her catwalking days because her body “asked her to stop.”

Bundchen herself seemed to confirm the news in a post on Instagram the day before the show, writing: “I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey. Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business.”

According to the Times story, IMG was inundated with calls about the supermodel’s runway retirement, and confirmed that the Brazilian bombshell is still wildly in demand.”I think a lot of people will still want her on the runway,” Nelson told The Times. “Will she want to do it? That’s a whole other story. It would have to come within an interesting angle, a unique opportunity. Will she do it? I can’t guarantee that. But that people will call for her, yes.”

It’s no surprise that Bundchen would want to limit her time on the runway—indeed, her catwalk appearances aren’t quite as frequent as other runway regulars—and the new positioning seems to open the door for special, one-off opportunities or appearances about which Bundchen feels passionately. So will she walk again or won’t she? It appears it’s an open-ended question.

Are you relieved that Gisele hasn’t completely the runway? Tell us in the comments!

Men’s Hairstyle Trends on the Runway: Long Vs. Slick

A longtime favorite of stylists, slick hair was the go-to look at the fall men’s runway collections. An extreme slicked-back style with high shine, hair was given slightly more volume for an overly dramatic look. Although a bit predictable, this look has the potential to gain popularity once again.
Long hair is no longer a woman’s prerogative. Taking its cue from the rock music scene, this season’s looks included mostly medium and long textured hairstyles with a messy finish. This hairstyle is not expected to be a temporary trend, so anyone opting to grow out their hair will surely find plenty of inspirational images.

Is Gisele Bündchen Really Retiring From the Runway?

AU CONTRAIRE: Not so fast. After swirling media reports proclaiming the runway retirement of Gisele Bündchen — rumors had surfaced that she’d be walking her very last show during the upcoming São Paulo Fashion Week in April, for a brand called Colcci — a rep at IMG said that the information had been “lost in translation.” The rep stated that because no official statement had been made from the model herself, no conclusions should be drawn on her behalf — at least not yet.
“Gisele made no statement,” the source said. “The truth of the matter is that we still have a very strong relationship with several international brands for which [Gisele] may have to do shows — special projects — in the future. It’s true that she doesn’t do fashion week; she doesn’t do 17 shows in all three cities, and she’s not going to start. But that’s not to say that she might not work on a special project in the future. The word retirement is a little bit of an extreme word.”
Bündchen made her catwalk debut in 1996 for the Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and Alexander McQueen shows in Milan and Paris and in more recent seasons

9 Seriously Striking Things to See From the Marc Jacobs Fall 2015 Runway

The Marc Jacobs show is the unofficial end to New York Fashion Week and, guys, it’s here! From the string music that served as sound track to the grand scene portrayed on a backdrop, it all smacked of drama and a lady of the manor with some serious secrets (and that was even before I got a chance to check out the clothes!).

The setting was pretty rad, bathed in sinister-looking red light as guests arrived.

A photo posted by @demetriozolo on

Also there? MJ-branded waiters with vodka.

The painted set deserves a close-up because, seriously, this is impressive.

I didn’t spy a single model walk down the runway without gloves, with some rising all the way to the elbow and others simply skimming the wrist bone (most were black, but a few were done in snowy wine). Amal Clooney affect, perhaps?

A photo posted by Stella Bugbee (@stellabugbee) on

And sure, most of it was seriously lady-like, but there was also this one saucy sheer gown.

A video posted by Bag Snob (@bagsnob) on

The bags were lady-like, top-handle styles and, hurrah, included some leopard!

A photo posted by Erica Sullivan (@ericacsully) on

Sequins were all over, including some floor-length gowns and evening coats, but they were most captivating when done as accents on the bottom of pieces or hidden inside folds, flashing as the ladies moved down the catwalk.

A photo posted by @peligroinc on

Nicki Minaj doesn’t always smile when she poses on the red carpet but how thrilled does she look here, backstage and surrounded by fresh-off-the-runway models?

A photo posted by hannahfouts (@hannahfouts) on

Kendall Jenner was there too, though as a model and not a front row guest.

Have you checked out the show yet? Thoughts? Did anyone else get scared (in a good way) by the music?

How One Designer Is Using ‘Role Models Not Runway Models’ To Empower Women

While New York Fashion Week featured many famous faces during its opening night on Feb. 12, it was the lesser-known ones that may have made the biggest impact.

Designer Carrie Hammer’s runway show “Role Models Not Runway Models” was a highlight of NYFW for the second year in a row. “Role Models Not Runway Models” featured female CEOs, writers, actresses and entrepreneurs.

“I think it’s important that women understand that beauty comes from power, personality, and accomplishments,” Hammer said. “The women we put on the runway are all at the top of their respective fields.”

463269450
Hammer walks the runway during the Role Models Not Runway Models show.

The models included Brandthropologie CEO Billee Howard, Nexus founder Rachel Cohen Gerrol, senior editor of Bustle.com Marie Ospina and Director of Public Affairs at Coca-Cola Missy Owens.

In 2014, Hammer’s show featured the first model in a wheelchair in NYFW and this year she included “American Horror Story” actress Jamie Brewer, the first model with Down syndrome to walk the runway.

“I think this challenges what we’ve been seeing for way too long. Uniformity. It’s time to see not just diversity — but reality,” Hammer said.

This Rick Owens Runway Is Completely, Totally NSFW

rick-owens-fall-2015-penis

Guys, this is not how I envisioned my Friday morning going. Rick Owens just showed his men’s fall 2015 collection in Paris and there were penises. Specifically, garments hemmed with a high arch in front so that certain areas got to see the light of day. I don’t think these could be legally worn anywhere, so, phew, but also, huh? Owens is an avant-garde designer who likes to make waves (remember his awesome spring 2014 collection with steppers?) and get us talking, so: mission complete.

Also—think he read Ruth Wilson’s thoughts on female versus male nudity?

Vines Of Runway Models Falling Might Make Your Day (VIDEO)
