New on the Runway: Clothes You Might Actually Wear - @Wsjlifestyle

OB-HO692_MarcJa_D_20100215220446.jpgOutrageous designs, from linebacker shoulders to mile-high boots—have long been the hallmarks of high-end fashion shows. But featured on runways this week is something new: plenty of wearable clothes, albeit with a designer flair.

Vice Squad: New York Designers Plead Guilty - @WomensWearDaily

The frantic pace of the New York season doesn’t foster the healthiest habits, especially among designers. But the show must go on. And so they rely on everything from crawfish-flavored potato chips to solitaire on the computer to see them through the stress of putting a collection together. Here, a sampling of designers’ dirty little secrets for surviving the week.

From Catwalk to Closet, Faster - @Wsjlifestyle

Some designers are chipping away at one of the industry’s most elite and stubborn schedules: the six-month lag it takes for runway looks to appear in stores, if they appear at all. Driving the change, they say, is a desire to stay a step ahead of knock-offs and to win over consumers after high-end clothing sales were battered by the economy.

More Winter Skin Care Tips… - @Splendicity

The long winter really takes its toll on your skin, so as the cold temperatures and dry air continue you need to pay special attention to the way that you take care of your skin.  Even though it’s almost March, you need to treat your skin like it’s the dead of Winter!

Throw Away Your Files Because Nail Extensions Are Going To Be Big - @Refinery29

This Fashion Week, designers sent their girls down the runway with some serious nail designs. From metal-encrusted claws to the first long tips that we haven’t shied away from, the models sported manicures that could do some serious damage.

Fashion’s New Fever: Bloggers in Spotlight As They Aim for Fame - @WomensWearDaily

Forget the B-, C- and even Z-list actresses who populated the New York shows over the last few seasons. The new celebrities are the fashion bloggers, who are courted, coddled and charmed like never before. And in perhaps a true sign of their status, they’re complaining about all the attention — even as many of them are moving beyond their blogs with deals, sponsorships and real jobs.

Spanx Body Slimmers for Men Unveiled - @Wsjlifestyle

Good news for Kevin Smith, the director who was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight Sunday, allegedly for being too pudgy: Spanx for Men are finally here.

New York Fashion Week Runway Recap: Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Tracey Reese and Rodarte - @StyleBakery

Marc Jacobs streamed his show live on his website Monday night, another example of how fashion is becoming more accessible. He also left celebs off the invite list, which is refreshing as it allowed the audience to focus entirely on his clothes.

Sarah Jessica Parker Wows Halston Crowd at Fall 2010 Fashion Week - @StyleListsays

sarah-jessica-parker-240kb021610-1266294657.jpgSarah Jessica Parker could not have been sweeter as she worked the crowd at the Halston Fall 2010 Fashion Week presentation. The “Sex and the City” star recently signed a deal to design for Halston Heritage, the house’s secondary line, which specializes in designs based on its deep and storied archives. She has been the face of Halston since September.

Braces and Straps: Fashion Week Fall 2010 Trend - @StyleListsays

Perhaps all this utilitarian-chic has gone to the heads of designers, or maybe S&M is in the air, but strapping is already a trend for Fall 2010. At Fashion Week there were calf-braces at Rag & Bone, and belts on the back of coats. At Altuzarra, the “Edward Scissorhands”-inspiration yielded bondage-style stacks of buckles on bound arms, legs and waists alike.

‘Brand damager’ Lindsay Lohan reportedly not invited to designer Jill Stuart’s Fashion Week show - @NYDailyNews

Lindsay Lohan is to Jill Stuart what Ashley Dupre is to Yigal Azrouel: the designer’s absolute worst nightmare. We hear from a source close to La Lohan that the wayward actress (who once was a front-row “It” girl) wasn’t invited to Stuart’s Fashion Week show because the designer’s team considers her a “brand damager.”

Five Things We Liked Monday - @CutBlog

The caramel crocodile fitted jacket over grey wool wide-leg trousers at Carolina Herrera. Impeccable classics, meant to last a lifetime.

Trend Alert: Thigh High Socks And Spats Will Keep Your Legs Warm In 2010 - @Refinery29

While leggings were the transitional cold-weather item a couple years ago, tights were the must-have accessory for last fall. This season, the legwear of choice gets a little more cheeky. Thigh-high socks appeared at Karen Walker and Thakoon and offered that hint of sexiness under those bulky layers of coats and jackets.

Marc Jacobs President Robert Duffy Tweets Behind the Scenes - @Wsjlifestyle

Welcome to the Marc Jacobs show live, via Twitter. The Twitter universe began buzzing a day or so ago that Robert Duffy, president of Marc Jacobs, was tweeting all the details of Mr. Jacobs highly guarded show, with photos from the set and, later, from backstage.

An Open Letter to Richard Chai - @Fashionista_com

Dear Richard, Thanks so much for dragging us out of bed on this frigid Manhattan morning! Really, we would’ve slept through Donna Karan at 2pm if it wasn’t for you (we were out a bit late last night).

Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 New York Fashion Week Show - @Wsjlifestyle

One nearly could have mistaken Mr. Jacob’s hot-ticket show tonight for one in Milan, what with all the finely constructed, entirely wearable and not-weirdly styled clothes that were on display.

It’s the collaboration that’s had us intrigued ever since we caught wind of it, and now, Narciso Rodriguez for eBay has hit stores. Or, er, auction tables.

Day 4 NY Fashion Week: See the Celebrities - @InStyle

Though she looked perfectly put-together when she took her seat in the front row at Diane von Furstenberg next to Sophia Bush and Molly Sims, Shenae Grimes admitted that she’d had just a few minutes to change her look from the previous show. “I changed backstage.
