Looking for the dream wedding look? Look no further. Here are the cutting edge looks for 2013, off the runways.Elie Saab designed a confectionery collection of regal lacy dresses that would suit a princess in Spain. There were also pastels that could deck out Mia Farrow circa 1968. Frankly, it was ephemeral and beautiful. They weren't hippie though. The dresses were well bred and grown up. You won't have to worry about looking immature at your own bash. The gowns glowed with his virtuoso design and fitted the models perfectly. Christopher Josse went the restricted route, with somewhat controlled sleeveless gowns that need only a simple headband to decorate with. George Chakra sent a model down the runway with a veil covered in frothy white lace pieces. Jennifer Lawrence recently shocked in her short Dior veil and hat, similar to the looks he sent down the runway at his bold wedding collection.
While ready-to-wear often steals the spotlight, we’d be making a big mistake not to give some special attention to the fresh beauty trends that graced the runway last week. With as much presence as the covetable clothing, New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2012 season brought us an assortment of hair and makeup looks that inspire our beauty routines as much as the collections inspired our wardrobes. From voluminous, airy updos to nail art we’ll be taking to the salon, here are the best and brightest beauty highlights from backstage to the catwalk. (Hint: keep those tweezers at bay—bushy eyebrows aren’t going anywhere!)
Yes, these past few days have seen the kind of temperatures and sunshine that had us all believing, if only for a moment, that summer was here to stay. However, it is time to face the cold, harsh reality...Fall is here, and just as the leaves do, the temperatures will also surely drop.
It’s time to bid farewell to the bright, sunny polish shades of summer, and make room for this season's lush, new crop of colors.
As any great accessory can pull a look together, and be the metaphorical “icing on the cake” to a great outfit, nail polish is no exception.
What can we really say about Narciso Rodriguez' Fall 2010 bevy?
There wasn't a single red-carpet gown. Or, should we say a worthy one?
The designer, who was inspired by "beautiful curved lines and shadows," did so through color-blocking, cropped jackets and minimalist looks.
The color scheme dramatically changed from gradient orange, grey and greens to black.
Asymmetry, nail heads and front zippers played as the details for the collection. But how will Narciso's pretentious followers take the drastic - but well needed - change?

Narciso Rodriguez may be on to something. Happily gracing his Pre-Fall 2010 collection with prominent selections of black and red hues (and a little grey, here and there), this just might be a trend that we're not quite ready for. Just when I was in the mood for winter whites, Rodriguez and a host of other designers are predicting next fall and winter to be very dark seasons, indeed. In tow of his classic sophistication, Rodriguez, like Alexander Wang, emphasized the importance of menswear-inspired pieces for his clients. With the sparkle of a LBD here and embroidery there, he played with balloon silhouettes, sack dresses and metallic wools. It seems as if Rodriguez is having quite a thrilling time - keeping himself and his clients so young, fresh and new. Yet, more importantly, we would love to get into the bevy that speaks first and foremost of empowerment.
Although the White House has no comment on Jailhouse Toys’ latest creation, a miniature Mrs. Obama will be joining her husband on store shelves everywhere, in a window-boxed package, later this year. Michelle will be available in three different outfits: the vibrant Maria Pinto purple dress worn the night of the “fist-bump,” the red and black Narciso Rodriguez Election Night dress, and the Donna Ricco floral dress she wore on “The View.”
Narciso Rodriguez closed New York Fashion Week’s day 5 at the tents with his fall/winter 2009 collection. It was amazing. There were these great hats with cut outs for the models eyes - since they came down to their noses. It was reminiscent of some action hero cartoon character, but chic in only the way Mr. Rodriguez can be. Sequin bodices that were so smooth and structured they looked like sexy armored paired with feminine, flowy hot pink mini skirts made up the finale looks while the color palette overall was on the more somber side with bright pinks and greens thrown in. Exposed zippers and tight black hoods paired with structured dresses also made frequent appearances on the runway. His body conscious dresses fit like a dream. It is no wonder why Claire Danes, Julianna Margulies, Kanye West and all the top fashion publication editors were in attendance.
