Coco And The Twins Dominate Fashion Week

cocomain1

DIVAAAAA! Okay, we admit, we usually zone out when people talk about New York Fashion Week (we all buy our clothes at Target anyway; who are we fooling?). But if C-list celebs like Coco start making an appearance at shows, consider us the next Anna Wintour.  Taking the stage at the Sachika Twins Fashion Week runway show, Coco wore a stunning purple frock with a plunging neckline and her butt hanging out everywhere. While the rest of us would get arrested if we wore this outside, this is the kind of sophisticated gown Coco might wear to court…the Supreme Court.

The designers To-Tam and To-Nya Sachika have also dressed the likes of Nicki Minaj, suggesting their line is for the elegant woman who knows what she wants, and didn’t drop $8,000 on butt implants for nothing. A conspicuous lack of camel-toe in this look means Coco could easily wear this dress on a visit to the White House or the strip club. Husband Ice-T probably stood up and composed a spontaneous Elizabethan sonnet when he saw his wife saunter back up the runway. Because if there is one thing that will always be true: we hate to see Coco go, but we love to watch her leave. [Photo: Splash]

Ashley Greene: Fashion Win At Donna Karan

ashley-greene-main

This weekend we got a lot of slack on Twitter for not loving Ashley Greene‘s VMA outfit. We even were told to “sit down,” which is easy for us to do because we sit on our asses all day blogging and eating Wheat Thins. But yeah, point taken. Thus we thought this would be a good time to clarify our deep, invested feelings about Ashley’s fashion picks. Ready?

We LOVE her casual look. She does the beautiful regular girl thing so well, with her collection of skinny jeans and ballet flats and flowy tops. She looks effortless, and it’s impossible to tell if she’s wearing make up or not because her face is all sorts of flawless. But sometimes her red carpet looks fall a bit flat to us, like at last year’s VMAS, for example. Other times, we gush over them; her Eclipse premiere dress still makes us melt with envy. Does this mean we “hate” Ashley Greene? No. We don’t know her. We’re bloggers. We hope Joe Jonas is kissing the sh*t out of those pretty lips and makin’ her happy. All hail Queen Greene.

But we did want to take this time to gush about a recent Ash outfit that we LOVE. Girlfriend is back in NYC for Fashion Week, and popped up at Donna Karan in this sea-green number. We love the loose look – she can totally pull it off because you know there’s a tiny bod of steel (see Ashley in a bikini!) underneath. The side ponytail, clean make up and understated (but just enough) jewels compliment the look enough without over-saturating it, leaving room for THOSE SHOES. Oh, do we just love a statement shoe.

This is the high glam Ashley we love! A bit risky, a lot of color, yet still simple and classy. Now the real question is – do you also dig this outfit or are we gonna disagree on Ash Fashion forever? Flame us in the comments!

Anna Wintour Calls Naomi Campbell “A Joy” But Loathes Tim Gunn. Fashion Is A Bizarro World

We’ve always loved Tim Gunn for his candor and class on Project Runway, but he’s been stirring up the fashion world lately with a book he wrote which reveals some juicy tidbits about fashion’s queen bee, Anna Wintour.

Gunn has been making the rounds this Fashion Week to promote Gunn’s Golden Rules, which contains a story about how he witnessed Wintour being carried down five flights of stairs at a fashion show. That he would publicly call out Wintour for her diva-like behavior made her so angry she demanded he retract the story, but he refused explaining that it was 100% true and he wasn’t the only witness. He included the story in the book, he says, not because she was carried, but because she made such a stink about being outed for it “Accept responsibility for your own behavior. If you’re going to be carried down five flights of stairs, own up to it,” he said on Live! with Regis and Kelly earlier in the week.

Today in Page Six, Gunn was asked what he would do if he saw Wintour at Fashion Week this week, to which he replied “Lord knows hell would freeze over if I came face to face with her here, but I probably wouldn’t be able to see past her handlers.” In addition, Gunn told WWD “I had friends and colleagues say, ‘You’ll never be invited to a dinner party again.’ My response was ‘Hallelujah!’” Could not love him more.

What’s ironic to us is how Wintour is upset with Gunn for being a sensible and decent human being, but just today defended universally loathed model Naomi Campell. Campbell was accused of being difficult to work with (if we had a nickel…) at the Fashion’s Night Out event held earlier this week in New York, but Wintour disagreed, stating “Naomi was on time, professional and a joy to work with.” Campbell may indeed have been professional and punctual, but we’re highly suspicious of any joy being had within her cell-phone throwing radius. But there you have it, an inside glimpse of the Opposite-Day/Bizarro World goings on in the world of fashion. So glad we get all our clothes at T.J. Maxx.

Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Stay Warm At Fashion Week

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel

Finally, proof that the love between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel just isn’t that hot. Sexyback and Sexybutt kept their winter wardrobes on while scoping out the Paris 68 show at NYC fashion week yesterday. Timberlake spent the night promoting his William Rast line before spending some quality PDA time with Biel. “He opened the curtain and stepped Jessica behind it, then wrapped them in it before giving her a long kiss,” a witness after the afterparty told Page Six. “He ended up giving her a lap dance. It was pretty raunchy.” Just as long as there wasn’t a box over his crotch.

The Most Indie Fashion Show Of All: Rodarte

59622356

The guest list at the Rodarte show answered a few lingering questions we’ve had lately, the first being “Where’s Kirsten Dunst hiding these days?”and the second being “Which Fashion Week runway show will draw the coolest crowd ever?” Dunst was there  palling around with her on-screen husband from Marie Antoinette, Jason Schwartzman, while indie music icons Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth sat a few seats away. Rounding out the cool club were Natalie Portman, Chloë Sevigny and a whole mess of unkempt coifs and quirky facial hair throughout the room. [Photos: Getty Images]

Pete Wentz Could Go For Some Fava Beans And A Nice Chianti

59631230

Yesterday marked Pete Wentz‘ Fashion Week show for his clothing/design/publishing label, Clandestine Industries. Proving he’s not one to avoid theatrics, he took to the stage in a Hannibal Lecter-inspired straitjacket and…moving dolly? Hand truck? Whatever it is, he got wheeled in. The Fall Out Boy bassist’s clothing line  is heavy on the printed-graphics and hoodies and is decidedly hipster (you don’t say!) and not at all what we’d assume Hannibal Lecter to wear while he’s lounging. For more backstage pics of Pete preparing to eat his audience’s faces, check out our gallery below.

Kim Kardashian’s New Dress: Latex Or Liquorice?

Anyone hear that squeaking? Must be Kim Kardashian wriggling towards the cameras to show off her form-fitting plastic wrap—bondage gear can be glamorous, too! The star stopped by Sephora on Fifth Avenue in the middle of Fashion Week to remind us how easy she is to smell now that her eponymous fragrance has been released. Watch the reality star stretch herself to the limit in the gallery below.

Lindsay Lohan Exiled In London During Fashion Week?

Lindsay Lohan may officially be in London to participate in a charity auction after tonight’s BRIT awards (she’ll be giving herself to the highest bidder), but the fact that Ungaro’s own is out of the US during NY Fashion Week may not be a coincidence. A source tells the New York Daily News that Lohan wasn’t invited to Jill Stuart’s show because the one-time actress is starting to be seen as a “brand damager.” “A lot of designers, and especially Jill’s camp,” says the insider, “don’t think she’s worth all the press she’d get their show.” Stuart denies the claim, but with Charlotte and Samantha Ronson keeping a high profile at the week’s soirees, Lohan may have felt a cold shoulder all the same.

Thankfully, London’s club scene is welcoming her with open arms—after Lindsay’s opera escort imbroglio last week, she must have shown up at the airport extra early! Watch the star head to the club Bungalow in a faux fur and bowler hat last night in the gallery below.

Ke$ha Hates Pants Just As Much As Lady Gaga

59557202

The no-pants fad.  First started by an improv group who took to riding the subway sans-trousers in New York to make people laugh/squirm. Co-opted by Lady Gaga somewhere in 2009 as a daring – but breezy – fashion statement. And now a full-blown trend, judging by Ke$ha‘s bottomless appearance at Fashion Week. When will it end? Presumably when someone sits on a splintery park bench, but we can’t be sure.

Ke$ha dropped in at the Erin Wasson show yesterday in a getup vaguely resembling some of Lady Gaga’s earlier looks, complete with leopard-print underthings and fishnets. (No better time like the day after a blizzard to test your legs’ tolerance for frostbite, that’s what we always say.) So is Ke$ha ripping off Gaga’s look? Judge for yourself. [Photos: Getty Images]
