Olympic Ice Skater Johnny Weir To Turn Fashion Designer - @StyleWatchMagJohnny Weir may have dazzled on Tuesday when he competed in a glittery black and pink corseted number at the Vancouver Olympics, but his aspirations extend past winning an Olympic medal; the former world champion is taking a serious dive into fashion.
Fall 2010 Trend Watch: Layering (Slideshow) - @Wsjlifestyle WSJ.comLayers upon layers of textures, fabrics and embellishments like fur, sequins and lace, are being thrown on top of each other for the Fall 2010 runway shows.
What They Wore: New York Fashion Week: Part One - @WhoWhatWearThough we would never attempt to divine what will be shown on New York’s most notable runways, there is one thing we can always count on: our favorite fashionable femmes will undoubtedly knock our socks off with their impeccable ensembles.
