Grimes Hedi Slimane

Many of us were something just short of aghast when Hedi Slimane announced that he would be using his power as creative director of legendary fashion house Yves Saint Laurent to stage a complete overhaul of the brand, starting with the most sacred of signifiers: the name. It would be called Saint Laurent Paris--a small change, but a significant one--and people scratched their heads a little bit, but as time has passed have come to accept that a new age of YSL is upon us. There have been reports that the new SLP will include expanded ready to wear, MANY more stores, and a younger, fresher feel, and Slimane's extracurricular activities support those theories. Outside of creative directing, Slimane has been photographing magazine and album covers from ultra cool, slightly grungy pretty young things Grimes and Sky Ferreira (not to mention those incredible photos of Frances Bean Cobain). He shot the cover for Sky's Ghost EP and Grimes' Dazed & Confused cover, and has now been posting atmospheric, beautiful shots of the Canadian musician on his blog, Hedi Slimane Diary. Could Slimane's fondness for edgy, street wise ladies be an indicator of the direction the new Saint Laurent Paris will take? Are there SLP snapbacks and nameplates in our future? Check out more of Slimane's photos after the jump and form your own theories.

The verdict is in! Anne Hathaway (who got engaged to Adam Shulman last year) will be getting married in a custom Valentino wedding dress, according to People StyleWatch. SQUEEEE. Last night at the New York City Ballet gala, Anne arrived in a GORGE Valentino Couture fall 2012 embroidered floral gown that screamed autumn, and, lucky for us, Valentino Garavani himself was also on hand escorting Ms. Hathaway down the red carpet. He revealed that he "did the dress" for Anne's big day and said, "She's a very good friend of mine. She’s like my daughter!" Awwwwww. :')

Betsey and Lulu Johnson at Betsey's 70th birthday party.
Photo: Getty

Lulu Johnson has quite and enviable pedigree. Not only is her mom Betsey Johnson, whose 70th birthday party we just attended, but Lulu grew up right at the helm of her eponymous clothing line as both muse and design assistant (how's that for training?). It's only natural, therefore, that she would grow up to be a designer in her own right, and that's exactly what she's doing with her new line, Lulu and Allison (the 'Allison' would be her best friend and co-designer, Allison McClellen). Now, we're pretty sure anything designed my a woman who had not only grown up with a fashion designer mom but also with access to THE BETSEY JOHNSON ARCHIVE would have to be pretty bonkers. However, Lulu claims to be more down to earth, or at least less sartorially adventurous, than her mom. In a new video from The Stylish (which you can watch after the jump) Lulu describes her line as, "a line for women who still want to be hip, sexy, and cool," while Betsey describes her own line as, "very punky, very downtown Sally Brown, very MTV." First of all, we are beyond pleased to be used as a descriptor for one of our favorite designers EVER, and second of all, it sounds like Lulu will not be following directly in her mother's footsteps with her line. We're going to get to follow along the whole way, though, as the two are also about to begin a reality show.

Is there an area of culture that Lady Gaga's Fame perfume launch hasn't touched? We have print ads, short films, ice cream socials, masked galas, and now (drumroll please) shoes. One of the most anticipated parts of each facet of the Fame launch machine is what mama monster will be wearing at any given point and in any given asset, and those of us who have been following it closely have also been combing over each image with a fine tooth comb, because if there's one thing we know about Gaga, it's that her attention to detail. is. exquisite. This leads us to the shoes. Last Friday, Gaga launched Fame with an ice cream party outside of Macy's in New York City's Herald Square. Her entrance, as was expected, was Gaga-grand, and she emerged out of a carriage shaped like a perfume bottle in a black bubble-like dress and a pair of sky high heels which, upon closer inspection, had tiny gold men crawling all over them. Calling to mind the evocative image on her Fame billboard, the small figures were rendered in gold and nearly overtaking the enormous 12-inch platform heel. Who could design such a creation? Why, United Nude, of course.

Lady Gaga

It was Lady Gaga's surprise walk for Philip Treacy's London Fashion Week show that had us all bracing ourselves, gripping the arms of our desk chairs in near-disbelief as she sported not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR different outfits. Now, we're slack-jawed and slow-clapping for the break-neck speed with which she's taken Vivienne Westwood's "Climate Revolution" shirt from the runway to the street. In this case, that speed would be a cool 24 hours. *rubs eyes and triple takes at computer screen*

Jeremy Scott

Looks from the Jeremy Scott Spring 2013 fashion show.
Photo: Getty Images

The late-'80s and '90s are alive and well for Jeremy Scott's SS 2013 collection that was inspired by "The Arab Spring." While some of the looks covered faces and torsos, the religious garb was stylized to the point of camp, with swaths of fabric either featuring sequins arranged in an animal print or being entirely see-through. Similarly, the militaristic aspects of the conflagration of civil uprisings and political turmoil that have raged in the Arab world since late 2010 have blessedly not been interpreted literally. It was definitely a more "Janet circa Rhythm Nation" sort of affair.

Fitted hats were oversized and out of them swung swishy, thick braids. Boots were over-the-knee and were slick, embossed or animal print and very much reminiscent of Julia Roberts as a "safety girl." There were embroidered, curlicue metallic accents to high-waisted flared trousers and the same swirly motif became the through-line for the louche, decadent prints that gave off a retro Hermes-meets-Versace vibe. The music was similarly nostalgic, percussive, and bodacious running through Aaliyah and fellow adidas collaborator Missy Elliott's hardest hits (Timbaland 4EVA).

Betsey Johnson

Sure, it was crimped hair and cat's eyes galore backstage at Betsey Johnson but there were also heaps of photographers and cameramen scrabbling for a shot of the designer who was celebrating her 70th birthday. Betsey commemorated this birthday with a 90-outfit career retrospective during New York's fashion week even amidst financial woes that resulted in the company filing for bankruptcy earlier this year.

There was nary a somber tone during the night at Espace on Manhattan's westside, that featured a musical performance from longtime Betsey bestie Cyndi Lauper and the miniature bottles of bubbly were complemented by the effervescence of a nostalgia-tinged soundtrack from our DJ for the evening—Sky Ferreira.

Gerlan Jeans, Minnie Mouse

Gerlan Jeans may not currently be a household name, but when your front row is littered with major fashion players like Santigold, Kelly Osbourne, Angela Simmons, and TWO huge celebrity stylists (Katy Perry's Johnny Wujek and Beyonce's Ty Hunter), we don't expect their underground status will remain intact for much longer. PLUS, you know how we've been all, "Yo, what's up with fashion's obsession with Minnie Mouse right now??" Well, Disney ITSELF teamed up with Gerlan Jeans for a 14-piece Minnie Mouse mini-collection which opened the show. We caught Wujek taking snaps of more than a few of the cartoon-inspired ensembles, so perhaps there's a Minnie look in Katy's future (she has worn the designer before, after all)!

Proenza Schouler

At first glance, a lot of the looks from Proenza Schouler's Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week show don't necessarily smack of warm weather. Sure, the colors are vibrant and the photo prints are definitely hallmark "summertime scenes" (beachy coastlines, lush greenery, an over-crowded neighborhood pool, and of course, herds of tourists lapping up their vacation days #TimesSquare), but if the long hems and leather on leather are making us sweat just LOOKING at them in early September, how are these pieces going to feel come next July?? Well, slow your roll, guys, because the Proenza Schouler design duo didn't win two CFDA awards for nothing. These guys are fashion geniuses and evidently beat us to the summer heat punchline, giving their atypical summer garments their own stealth ventilation system.

Prints and pastels were a Spring 2013 treat at Nanette Lepore.
Photo: Getty

Bright eyes, bright prints and bright detailing on everything from shoes to belts dominated at Nanette Lepore's Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week today. One of our favorite trends from this season's shows has been electric, pastel colors swept across eyes--we saw a more subdued, cat eye version at Alice + Olivia as well--and the Lepore lids were one of our favorite iterations yet. Opaque color reaching to just below the brow made the models eyes pop, whether it was in metallic peach, blue, or white. Moving from the top down, silhouettes were modern and airy, with one shoulder pieces, halters, keyholes, and more flowing into looks so bursting with prints that it looked like they were made of rainbow sherbet. After this show, we have officially found our personal color for Spring 2013 (but don't hold us to it because we like to be able to change our minds), and it's melon. Warm, orangey pink, we can't get enough. We were also wild about the mixed pastel plaids we saw on Brazilian Girls' frontwoman Sabine Sciubba, who performed her signature smooth, tropical tunes for the entirety of the show.
