Topshop Fall 2013

Considering its celeb cult following, global customer base (ahem, the entire MTV Style staff included), and well-deserved rep for churning out uber-trendy, supercute goods time and again,Topshop is used to major hype happening loooong before the first model steps onto the runway. But this season the U.K. brand took things one step further, making its Fall/Winter Topshop Unique fashion show even more interactive than usual with Google Hangouts beforehand, streaming backstage access, and model cams on catwalkers like Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn. Because we'd do practically anything for Topshop, we set our alarms for bright and early this morning (9 a.m. on a Sunday?! Bleghhh!) to watch the action as it was happening from London. Some highlights: getting up close and personal with Louis Tomlinson in the Hangout beforehand, spying on Demi texting in the front row pre-show, AND the ability to replay the whole thing over and over again. Oh, and THE CLOTHES.

Rihanna River Island

Ahhh, the wait is finally over! The oh-so-highly-anticipated Rihanna for River Island collection debuted at London Fashion Week this evening after a very (VERY) fashionably late start, and we have to say--we're totally on-board with her comfy girly-yet-grunge pieces. She kicked off her show with Kanye West and Jay-Z's "Clique" blasting to a light show on a multi-level platform stage, and then sent out a two-piece denim ensemble for her opening look. She remixed traditional denim overalls but cutting them into two pieces and adding an extra layer of baggy jeans (literally) on top of a lighter pair, which we've never seen before. Other looks included a simple two-piece black bodysuit with a oversized parka and thigh-high lace-up boots, and a tie-dye off-the-shoulder crop top and skater skirt ensemble which TOTALLY reminds us of her denim Jeremy Scott "We Found Love" music video look.

Whew, New York Fashion Week is officially over, y'all—BUT that doesn't mean we're done dishin' on all the killer fashion and beauty looks we peeped on the runway and backstage! If you've been following us on Instagram (WHICH YOU SHOULD!), you might've been tipped off to all the cool nail art happening this year. From 3D studs to super intricate artwork, the runway certainly wasn't short of models sporting decked-out digits. So, we decided to compile all the best, boldest, and most outrageous nail art from NYFW so you can catch up on all the manis you might've missed. Let's get to it!

MOST LIKELY TO HAVE THE MOST INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS: ASSEMBLY

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Nail Art

Assembly New York was all about mixing work and play in their fall 2013 collection, but when we peeped the nails and realized they were Emojis, we basically lost our shiz. Miss Pop created these bright yellow stunners using the oh-so-famous iPhone Japanese icons as inspiration, and we LOVE. IT. *double taps photo*

Karlie Kloss was all over New York Fashion Week this season.

Sometimes we look at Karlie Kloss, in magazines or advertisements, baking cookies (or should we say, KOOKIES) or sharing a runway with Justin Bieber, and generally OWNING New York Fashion Week, and we get a little jealous. Wouldn't it be fun to be 6 feet tall and jet all over the world and get to wear all of those beautiful clothes? It would, but it would also be SO MUCH WORK. Like, we get to sleep in our own beds and wear flats to work sometimes. Also, have you ever had to walk in really high heels with someone watching you? Like, when you go on a date and realize maybe you aren't TOTALLY down with how many inches you have on your feet, and you get up to go to the bathroom and know your date is going to watch you walk away and you're like, OH NO I'M GONNA FALL, the entire way? Yes? Of course you get it. Well we can only imagine that being on a runway in giant heels is like that but about ten thousand times scarier because if you fall someone will put the photos on Getty and Youtube and I'm having sympathy pains just thinking about it. UGH. That was our long way of saying that Karlie Kloss is AMAZING and we're utterly in awe of her (which, duh, is why she's one of our House of Style hosts). This fashion week, Karlie not only walked in a number of the biggest shows, including Oscar De La Renta, Anna Sui and Carolina Herrera, but she ALSO served as the Mercedes-Benz ambassador, AND ran all around town handing out her kookies to famished show-goers from Milk Studios to Lincoln Center. NOT TO MENTION that she did all this AND flew to LA and back to be our red carpet correspondent for the Grammys. Are you tired yet? Oh also, she looked amazing doing all of this. AMAZING. See our gallery of Karlie's fashion week highlights after the jump!

We're pretty sure if a term (slang or otherwise) is being used in MSNBC headlines to describe the Michelle Obama eye roll heard 'round the world, it requires little to no explanation. However, for clarity's sake, we're going to unpack it for you anyway. *Kanye shrug* "Throwing shade" is an expression used to describe the act of casually disrespecting people, usually in the form of a glance. A glance PREGNANT with judgement. Sometimes shade is thrown to be seen. Other times, it's a knee-jerk reaction you just can't hide. Either way, New York Fashion Week is a veritable HOTBED of it.

It makes complete sense. A week wherein every group, department, and tier of the fashion industry intermingles for show after show after show? Wherein models, editors, designers, celebrities, and bloggers are all competing for limelight? Wherein the sound of egos brushing abounds almost as much as the clatter of high heels? It's a perfect storm for every iteration of shade-throwing you can possibly imagine. The best part? There are legions of photographers posted up all over the city, ready and waiting to capture every stank face, eye roll, and grimace for all eternity. We can't say that we were able to track down all the slick side-eyes from this season (also, that post will be one billion trillion words long, and ain't nobody got time for that), but we DID sift out our top ten photos of fashion's biggest and brightest throwing shade this New York Fashion Week (plus, completely fabricated commentary about what's happening in each image). Enjoy! *blows kiss, waves*

"PACK IT IN, ANNA" SHADE

The legendary Anna Wintour is infamous for killing a career with a single glance, but here the shade-throwing tables appear to have turned. Wintour smiles sweetly, leaning into Vogue compatriot Grace Coddington. Unfortunately, whatever Anna's selling the other two aren't buying, as they stone-face avoid looking in her general direction, pretending not to subscribe to all that. SHADE. Realistically, these ladies were probably just trying to get out of what they presumed would be a solo dolo of Anna, but you've gotta admit that the final effect is hilarz.

The Blonds Fall 2013

Earlier this week we dissected The Blonds killer (heh) classic Hollywood horror film-inspired fall 2013 pieces at NYFW (think: fake blood splatters in the form of sequins and dresses doubling as rope-tied victims), but when we looked closer at these frighteningly good ensembles, we noticed the models' nail art game was ridiculously on point—we're talking incredibly iconic slasher flick moments etched onto mini fingernail canvases. Above, you'll see a white on black "Bates Motel" mani from the movie Psycho and the word "REDRUM" (murder backwards!) painted on her nails just like in The Shining. We're gettin' the creeps just looking at it.

And that's a wrap! We've made it through seven days of fearless fashion in New York City, from the runways to the after parties. Must. rest. now. But before we doze off and catch up on all the beauty sleep we surrendered this week, we have to recap all of the celebs we spotted at this season's Fashion Week shows! Let's take a look back, shall we?

Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 Collection.

Was it a mars landing, or was it a pajama party, or was it just Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 show at New York Fashion Week. If you said all of the above, you wouldn't be too far off the mark, no pun intended. After postponing his show due to shipping delays (thanks to winter storm Nemo, of course), Marc Jacobs held his show on Valentine's Day in his usual Park Avenue Armory, and almost immediately we understood why he wanted to wait to get his whole collection before putting it out there for the world to see. A rich collection of watery silks, ultra-thick furs, sequins, and wools presented in the round under a warm, beaming reddish sun, Jacobs certainly had something to be proud of. Unlike his most recent Spring 2013 collection, which was straight mod, with odes to Twiggy and her London not far from the surface, fall 2013 was far more nuanced. There was still that 60s love of collars and boxy coats, but there were also pieces absolutely dripping with a whole different type of glamour. The silk and sequined dresses, which hung off of the models like liquid silver, combined 20s silhouettes with 70s opulence, reminding me of The Great Gatsby and Studio 54 both. Topped with rich, heavy furs, they communicated wealth and beauty to the point of otherworldliness.

The three main colors of Anna Sui's A/W 2013 collection.

What is it about the 60's, and mod in particular, that has, and always will have, everyone all shook up. Is it the snappy hemlines--short but still girlish and innocent--or the clean lines? Or is it the way that the shapes, while singular and recognizable, lend themselves to basically any fabric? Or is it that slight, sweet whiff of rebellion that it's impossible not to get off of any garment modeled after the turbulent, swinging 60's? Either way, this has been yet another season where countless designers were inspired by mod, and Anna Sui was no different. Her show opened on the now-signature bob of Karlie Kloss, standing at the end of the runway with with a number of other models. They looked more like they were about to start singing than to walk down the runway, and so it wasn't really too much of a surprise when they began to sway back and forth with a go-go shimmy, like a silent, incredibly well dressed girl group. Karlie opened the show with a knowing, girlish smirk in one of most luxurious suits we have seen this season. In colors ranging from red to bright pink, bronze and orange, Karlie's opening look was like a school uniform gone mad, a small tie done in bright red sequins and a rounded collar. This collection was really about color and about fabric, showing silks, wools, and velvets in a range of warm jewel tones perfect for the chilliest days of fall. There were three main color palettes--red, blue, and green--and Sui kept each look within one of those palettes. This was no matchy-matchy monotone and there was no color blocking in sight. Take notes, because this wasn't just at Anna Sui: one of the biggest lessons we're taking from the shows is that there's nothing more glamorous than a play on pattern, and the brighter the better.

Kat Graham, A$AP Rocky, Elizabeth Olsen

As Fashion Weeks go, they tend to save the best for last. Best shows, best looks, and the best celebs to take it all in. We're glad to see that we've hit the last day of Fall 2013 on a high note, where the likes of Kat Graham, A$AP Rocky and Elizabeth Olsen sat front row. Kat Graham was impossible to miss sporting new blonde hair and wearing a bold, primary-color bodycon dress at the Jeremy Scott runway show. She also sat next to an energized A$AP Rocky, who decided to catch a few shows after making his runway model debut at Hood By Air a few days earlier, wearing head to toe black. We have to say we've been disappointed we haven't seen more of Elizabeth Olsen this Fashion Week, vanishing after she appeared at the Prabal Gurung for Target collaboration. But the littlest Olsen delivered, appearing at Proenza Schouler in almost the same color palette as the current collection, wearing a structured blue jacket and black leather pants. Take a look at all of the celebs at New York Fashion Week after the jump!

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