Ugh. You guys. Even classy dame extraordinaire, Carolina Herrera, is doing crop-tops now—so ladies, start your crunches! While I’d hoped to spend the Fall/Winter 2013 season hibernating alongside warm, heavy dishes, it seems as if my plans have finally been foiled, thanks to the High Priestess of High Society. Not even my “stylish” sweatshirts can save me now. *SIGH* Granted, her crop-tops were lovely and some came paired with floor-length skirts, but there were bare abs, nonetheless.

However, Herrera also debuted a gorgeous collection of polished gowns and delicate cocktail dresses for Spring 2014, as expected by students of the designer’s long-standing institution of sophistication. There were warm, earthy colors, ornate embellishments and graphic, geometric prints that created an optical illusion of sorts with multiple layers of light-as-air fabrics. Nearly every piece drifted with feather-like fluidity, and it was that aspect of the collection that Javier Peral chose to focus on when choosing songs for Herrera’s show. Wanna kick back and relax with Peral's ethereal runway soundtrack? Of course you do. Check it (and the sound stylist's inspiration) after the jump! Crunches can wait.

Some things in life are just meant to be, and a Jeremy Scott x A$AP Rocky fashion collab is definitely one of those inevitable things. (Though, for the record, Jeremy's said he's open to a rap collab, as well.) The bold runway designer and Harlem-born MC recently announced that they've teamed up on a special edition pair of adidas Originals sneakers, and ever since that news broke, we've been dying to pick their brains about the project. Lucky for us, we had just that opportunity this past weekend at the adidas Originals store on New York City's Wooster street just before a meet-and-greet attracting a crowd of 300 some-odd fans for autographs and pictures with the JS Wings 2.0 Black Flag creators.

We don't mean to pick favorites, but we love Jonathan Simkhai. The New York-based designer is relatively fresh to the New York Fashion Week scene (his first show was in 2010!), but he's already won over buyers at Barneys, Shopbop and Bergdorf Goodman, just to name a few. His sporty-meets-edgy-meets-feminine pieces are a fresh take on super cool work wear (or, heck, any kind of wear!), and we're obsessed with his graphically bold designs. His spring/summer 2014 collection features everything from breezy palazzo pants to sultry cut-out crop tops to super mod frocks, and we NEEDED to find out more about this visually-inspiring line. Luckily, we got a chance to catch up with Jonathan himself to tell us about his collection inspiration, live presentation music, and the type of girl he designs for. Check it out below!

As if a surprise runway walk from Rita Ora (accompanied by a seriously dope Spring 2014 collection that's both nostalgic and forward-thinking) wasn't enough, DKNY threw itself a GIGANTIC 25th birthday party last night in New York's Financial District punctuated by a high octane performance from the next face of the brand herself. The crowd itself was star-studded with a huge range of fashion fans, from Hailee Steinfeld to John Legend and his hilarious model boo Chrissy Teigen to Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis. But the stage ALSO boasted its fair share of famous faces as Iggy Azalea, Melanie Fiona, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg all made surprise guest performance appearances.

The front row at Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2014 show was teeming with lovely Hollywood ladies (Emmy Rossum, Jena Malone, Rose McGowan) in search of their next red carpet gown. The elegant dresses almost appeared to float down the runway, leaving tangerine, coral, and fuchsia-tinted trains gliding gracefully in their wake. Sounds like a dream, right? Well be that as it may, there’s no time for sleep during New York Fashion Week! Gotta keep the crowds on their Manolo Blahnik-covered toes! Which is exactly why Javier Peral, the man behind the soundtrack for Lhuillier’s Spring 2014 show, opted to go sullen and sulking with the mood of the tunes, instead of light and airy like the collection itself. To hear more about the music from Javier himself and peep the edgy soundtrack behind the delicate dresses, stay with us after the jump!

It may've been the weekend, but that certainly didn't stop celebrities from coming out to New York Fashion Week to see what their fave designers have planned for Spring 2014.

Rita Ora

Happy 25th birthday, DKNY! Now you can rent an SUV on your own! With the advent of 2014 (by way of this Spring/Summer-showing New York Fashion Week), Donna Karan's youth-oriented diffusion line embarks on its 25th year of existence since its launch in 1989. Accordingly, the major anniversary show employed its own major surprise: a closing runway walk from forthcoming campaign face and all-around cutie patootie pop star Rita Ora. Sure, celebs sit front row for shows all the time (*achem* was anyone else FLIPPING out about seeing Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis??), and sure, we already knew that Rita and DK were linked, but does that mean we expected this kind of catwalk cameo? Certainly not.

Serious question: Do we love Peter Som's Spring 2014 line, or do we LOVE Peter Som's Spring 2014 line? I have never been more excited to mix prints in my LIFE, y'all. Solange, girl, you better watch your closet—I'm comin' for ya! Obvi, we ball on a budget over here, so *fingers crossed* we'll be snagging our Som from his newly-announced Kohl's collab collection next year instead of fresh off the runway. But that's OK! There ain't no shame in the high-end accessible game. And even though I may never have the chance to personally strut my stuff at New York Fashion Week (I'm 5'3" on a good day), I plan on making the sidewalk my catwalk when I fill my headphones with all the beachy-keen songs from Som's show, courtesy of sound stylist Javier Peral. Javier was in charge of the soundtrack behind the big-city surfer-girl line and once again, he was kind enough to share the goods with all of us. Check out Peral's perspective on the vibe of the collection and snag the full playlist from Peter Som's Spring 2014 presentation after the jump!

Here ye, here ye! Gather 'round, fair BARBZ, for your queen, Nicki Minaj, has arrived on the New York Fashion Week scene, and she has a *very* important declaration for all her loyal subjects: Fear not the '90s steez! Bring forth the acid wash jeans! The crop-tops! The logo-emblazed bling! For they are back with a vengeance and her Minajesty doth approve.

After taking a seat on the front-row throne at Herve Leger's Spring show earlier in the day, Nicki held court at Alexander Wang's after-party last night and the woman ruled the night in a can't-be-missed Chanel-plated chain necklace. #LOGOMANIA Minaj, who was a surprise performer at the Pier 17 blow-out, also wore a black, long-sleeved crop-top by Wang himself, her own high-waisted, slashed-up jeans and some seriously sick leopard-print calf hair and suede ankle boots by Giuseppe Zanotti. Minaj was the perfect embodiment of emerging trends for the Spring 2014 season—Wang debuted his highly-anticipated collection on Saturday and showed '90s street-revival with prominent logo-wear and plenty of pieces that would make Cher Horowitz proud.

On the second day of New York Fashion Week, Yeezus rose from within the tents to actually spend everything on Alexander Wang. He was joined by music's most-stylish, including Miguel, Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss, Solange and Courtney Love, to name a few. And Wang did not disappoint his star-studded audience (or his pajama-clad loyalists watching the live stream from home, eating a cheeseburger and not feeling bad about it).

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
