Color Splashes at New York Fashion Week!

September 12th, 2011 · No Comments

What we love about the New York Fashion Week is how each of the designers who participates in the event sometimes end up with similarities.  They still have their signature touches, however they couldn’t seem to escape the similar air of the next season’s offerings.  Here are some of Fabcrush favorites from the event.  First up: bold fresh colors from DKNY.

Still in the bold colors mood, Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano offers some freshness in the formal lineup.

Tommy Hillfiger also came up with some fresh colors in its resort collection.

In the formal front, along with Christian Siriano, Zac Posen offers some really elegant structured dresses in calmer color tones.

Among the blocks of bold colors, Charlotte Ronson presented prints on her collection.  Symetrical lines and patterns adorn the collection and we LOVE them.

Which collection will be filling your wardrobe next season?

Jessica Simpson’s No Make Up Marie Claire Cover: Legit or Not?

April 14th, 2010 · No Comments

By today, the world has recognized the suddenly-famous Marie Claire cover: the make-up-less Jessica Simpson. But then questions raised and people are starting to talk about the legitimation of the ‘loud’ no make-up statement. This is simple in our regular world, but very big in the fashion and beauty world!

Some blogs reported that if you look closely to the cover image, there’s some make-up residue around her eyes or maybe they are touches of mascara. Anybody can say negative stuff, but Jessica stood up for herself:

“I absolutely was not wearing make-up. If anyone compared the Marie Claire Photos to the airbrushed ones, the differences would definitely be noticeable.”

Aside from promoting her upcoming reality show “Price of Beauty”, Jessica wanted to send out an important message to women that she is a normal person and thus boosts their self esteem.

Well, it’s good that Jess is not selling make up (yet) in her Jessica Simpson fashion line, so you can enjoy her designs without being a ‘different’ person.  Fabcrush has selected some strikingly hot Jessica Simpson fashion items for your summer, and here’s the complete beach outfit.  With things like these, who needs make up?

Jessica Simpson Oversized Floppy Hat, $44

Jessica Simpson Shades, $51

Jessica Simpson Long Sundress, $118

Jessica Simpson Cane Sandals, $69

Jessica Simpson St. Tropez Tote Bag, was $128, now $91.35

Fabcrush Bids Farewell To Designer Alexander McQueen

February 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Fabcrush editors are longtime fans of the recently-deceased designer, Alexander McQueen. The designer who is known for his show-stopping designs was found dead in his apartment in London, Thursday morning February 11th, 2010, just days after his mother passed away. According to recent reports, McQueen hanged himself, but Scotland Yard will not confirm this. His autopsy will take place Monday, in Westminster, London. Funeral details is yet to be released.

McQueen was trained in England’s prestigious design house, Savile Row, and in 1994, he enrolled in London’s Central Saint Martins fashion school. In 1996, Alexander McQueen became the head designer at Givenchy before Gucci bought 51 per cent of his own company and propelled him into being the celebrity-favorite designer.

McQueen was honored by Queen Elizabeth in 2003 and was famous among Hollywood’s A-Listers. His edgy designs were eye-catching and also became Fabcrush readers’ favorites.

One of his longtime friend, fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker who was recently appointed as Chief Creative Officer and President of Halston, mourns the passing of the designer:

“I am shocked and overcome with grief upon learning about the untimely death of the quiet genius Alexander McQueen. My heart goes out to his family and all those who worked for and with him.”

Sarah Jessica also spoke on how she finds Alexander McQueen as one-of-a-kind.

“Every single inspired, original, lofty, whimsical, stunning, brilliant and jaw dropping detail was Alexander Mcqueen. There has never been anyone like him. And there simply never will be.”

About McQueen’s unreleased designs, Sarah Jessica commented:

“What is more devastating is that despite all his success thus far, creatively, critically and commercially, his greatest achievements lay ahead of him. The future would be whatever he hoped to make of it,” she says. “God speed Lee. It has been a privilege for all of us to know you. You will be indescribably missed.”

He will be missed, indeed.

FabCrush Fashion Spotlight: Fashion Toast

February 20th, 2008 · No Comments

FashionToast.com has only been active for about four month, but the blog is already receiving crazy amounts of attention online fashionista’s and fashion publications alike. The idea behind Rumi’s blog is pretty simple; she keeps us updated with photos of her stylish outfits daily and also gives us a look at some of the celebrities and models who influence what she wears. One could easily mistake this every day girl for Chloe Sevigny or one of the Olsen Twins based on her clothing alone. But what we love the most about Rumi’s style is that she manages to look just as expensive as those girls, while mainly shopping at affordable stores such as Forever 21, H&M, American Apparel and the Goodwill. Save a designer handbag or two, of course.

With the number of online designer boutiques rising daily, retailers are getting creative in the way they sell clothes in order to set their stores apart. These are three boutiques that are adding an artistic touch to how they do business.

Enter the world of a cute, high achieving young cheerleader attending a posh private who knows the difference between actual couture and Juicy Couture. No, it’s not an episode of Gossip Girl, it’s the real life of the author of MissCouturable.blogspot.com.

She may still be in high school but you would never know it by her writing style, which is probably one of the reasons why she landed an internship at Seventeen before she even hit the age herself. On a regular basis she covers what the most influential designers in the industry are doing, gives us a little taste of her every day style, and ties it all back to real life. Her blog is aimed at the younger set, but it easily appeals to those of us who are fashionably young at heart.
