While New York buyers are frantic with appointments, every editorial entity is also picking out their favorites.

In this case, substantial translates to wearable, less-noticeable outerwear and lean trousers. All we can say is, Go Gray!

A gown from her pleat-centric Fall 2008 collection made it to the Oscars on Marisa Tomei last weekend, and now that that's over, it's time for the big reveal: Spring 2009. The collection, modeled by Georgina Stojiljkovic, who seems to be Donatella's favorite couture model, focuses on ruffled red carpet-ready gowns, with a couple of whorled cut-out confections thrown in for good measure. Sketches included.
After three jam-packed rounds of MAC face charts from the New York shows we bring you one whopping set of looks straight off the runway in London. From the tough girl looks at Vivienne Westwood Red Label to the utterly glamorous looks at Nicole Farhi and Roksanda Ilincic there's definitely enough Fall 2009 beauty to last the whole season.
In London, modern and minimal looks ruled and graphic transparency was a major trend. Like luxe turned inside out, transparent, colorless fabrics communicated a need for something special without even a hint of vulgarity. This season London was all about the personal, forward-looking fashion statement.
The Yves Saint Laurent auction--the largest private art auction in history--raised a total of $484.6M, singlehandedly putting Paris back in the center of the art world.
Lissie Trullie, the New York it-girl who is in more look books than we can count this season, is also starring in Moises de la Renta's look book.
The New York Times' Cintra Wilson reviewed Bird's new Brooklyn outpost and her comments are, well, specific.
