This is what happens to me every Halloween: I say, "I'm not going out, I'm not going out, I'M NOT GOING OUT!" And then, two days before the 31st, I decide, "ok FINE, I'll go out!" Frantic running around New York City then ensues, as I hilariously try to scrape together some half-baked idea. Of course, I always come up with something totally brilliant in the middle of the night, but there is no way I'd be able to pull it off in time. Does this scenario sound familiar to any of you? Yes? Well then this post is for you!
The shoes! The bags! The ridiculous outfits! We reveled in it all, but sadly New York Fashion Week has come to a close. Throughout the week we have seen the best and the worst of what fashion can be, from the the dresses that make us drool, to the front row outfits that make us say, “Wait, you wore that?!” There’s no such thing as a Fashion Week Yearbook (in my opinion there should be each season) but I went ahead and put together my Fashion Week Superlatives anyway... you know, just in case.
ALL AROUND BEST LOOK: KELLY OSBOURNE

I love everything about this. Her bun is crazy and so are all the colors, but it works because of the simple silhouette of the dress.
Holy bleach! Holy beach! Blonde and tan was the theme of this year’s VMA red carpet. In the spirit of healthy competition we’re going to play a little three-on-three. I’ve grouped the ladies into two teams (based on their lip color, of course): Team Red and Team Nude. And while Team Nude is without a doubt the most visually striking, I think Team Red’s polished, old Hollywood look may lead them to victory in these Blonde vs. Blonde games. Let’s start with Team Nude:
TEAM NUDE: PINK

Pink looked like, well, herself. Her style hasn’t changed much since she swapped pink locks for blonde ones oh-so many years ago, but that’s cool, she has a thing that works and she’s stickin’ to it. Her smoky eye makeup looks great and her lipstick color was spot on. It’s really hard to find the right lip color for the tan skin/white-blond hair combination without looking freakish, so it’s best to go with some version of your natural lip color with a little gloss. This is exactly what Pink did and it looks great.
