KYE

The way KYE is stylized in all caps, you'd think it was an acronym: clever shorthand for some elusive phrase apropos of EVERYTHING that you'll never be inner-circle enough to know because these clothes are THAT cool. Well, it's not. I mean, the clothes actually are 100% that cool, but KYE takes its name from the line's brilliant designer, Kathleen Kye. There's a good chance you haven't heard of Kye or her namesake label, and that's totally understandable seeing as she's only been showing for a handful of seasons and has only recently branched into womenswear. BUT we have a feeling that's aaaaall about to change very soon. I mean, look at this collection! I want to wear everything right NOW.

Over the long weekend, the fashion elite started flocking to Paris to catch a glimpse of the latest in haute couture collections. Lady Gaga was there, too, but I'm pretty sure she was just celebrating herself. Not that I blame her, of course—because she was pretty much the center of attention wherever she went (in, like, a much bigger way than usual). And this is a woman who regularly exits hotels with giant props and once arrived to an awards show on a human horse. Hard to believe, I know.

On Sunday, Gaga celebrated herself with a cameo at the Atelier Versace show (courtesy of her BFF, Donatella Versace). The singer, who was recently named the new face of the Italian fashion house, showed up in a black hooded dress (that would moments later hit the runway for the first time) and her very apropos Donatella-style blonde wig. #twinsies

OBVIOUSLY, Mother Monster sat front row for the show (next to famed photog, Mario Testino), and enjoyed a soundtrack from herself, featuring both old and ARTPOP songs. "ARTPOP: anyone can achieve everything I have and more. Your talent belongs to the world. Share it. You'll wake up in the front row @Versace," she tweeted after the show. Oh, it's as easy as sharing? Good to know. Get to work, Little Monsters.

Kanye West

We’ve got to hand it to Ye. After a year’s worth of fashion rants (will we ever forget the leather jogging pant?) and one abbreviated overpriced collection for A.P.C., Kanye West is finally living up to his design aspirations. Maybe all of those monologues are just part of his creative process? His second effort for the French brand A.P.C., which was announced on the low last December, just debuted at Paris Fashion Week and it’s full of #dopeness. Kanye’s personality is stamped all over it, from the double-denim looks—and one with a flag-like cape that could have hung in the Yeezus pop-up—to the moody zipper-stitched parkas paired with parachute pants, Timberlands, and balaclavas. For every dark look, there was a suited counterpart, styled with glasses and jackets worn as capes.

But did you really expect Kanye would deliver a collection without a monologue? Think again! After revealing that the collection was inspired by “paint colors” and his idea of the modern family—"It's about what is the new family—it's like me, Kim and North”—Kanye went innnnnn on the industry’s refusal to take him seriously: “Every factory I go to, every time I sit down and talk about it, it’s like whether I’m talking about clothes from the hip-hop side of things or talking about clothes with someone that is in the fashion industry to not have a prejudice against the U-shaped curve of success in your field.”

Chocolate Fashion Show

Can you believe it's chocolate?

Happy Friday, errybodaaay! This week, we were inspired by photos from the Salon Du Chocolat fashion show, so in lieu of food-related items, we decided that THIS Food Friday we’d create a game: Chocolate or Couture? We're pitting fashion made from chocolate against real runway couture looks. It's sure to be the nation’s fave game by, like, next Wednesday.

Below you’ll find six pairs, each of which contains one outfit consisting of elements made from chocolate and one that is constructed completely of non-chocolate materials. To play, just click on whichever of the two images you think is chocolate. If you’re right, you’ll know. If you’re wrong, you’ll also know.

If you think you have the highest score in all of Internetland, be sure to write it in the comments below and then share it with all your friends who definitely care about your ability to correctly identify food from fashion. At the very least, you’ll earn our respect. Good luck!

WHICH OUTFIT WAS MADE WITH CHOCOLATE? CLICK ONE.

Here are some things one might associate with the wild, wild American west: cowboys, lassos, saloons, Will Smith, 10-gallon hats, studded leather saddles, motorcycle jackets lined with mink, crocodile bombers, Angel Haze, etc. etc. Oh, oops! I wrote that wrong. What I meant to say was, "Here are some things designer Philipp Plein associates with the wild, wild west." According to his recent runway show, that is.

With a neon-lit, multi-level saloon serving as the backdrop, Plein presented his "Noir Cowboy"-themed menswear collection in Milan on Sunday—complete with a cap gun fight, a mechanical bull, and real bucking broncos. But despite the live-action gunplay between shirtless male models (#yeehaw), the most surprising aspect of the show was an unannounced guest performance by rapper Angel Haze.

Considering we're in the throes of a polar vortex, looking at clothing for next autumn/winter may seem unappealing. We prefer shorts and bathing suits and clothing that makes us believe it will be warm again, not sweaters that make it seem like winter will last forever. Fashion doesn't adhere to our feelings though, and Fashion Week is starting up again, kicking off in London with men's collections. Though these clothes are technically for next fall, there are a few trends we found that we're not sure we'll be seeing at all. Ever.

DEMENTED MICKEY MOUSE

Weirdly enough, two different designers had models walk out with Mickey Mouse ears. "MICKEY IS HUGE FOR FALL 2014, TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW!"—people in the fashion world (or so I imagine). MAN attached Mickey's iconic ears to a baseball cap and accessorized it with something you'd likely find in a dentist's office/nightmares, while Kate Eary constructed a plastic Mickey mask, complete with a red mohawk. I'm pretty sure this would not fly on the subway.

New York Fashion Week

"Why have 20 million people with zero connection to the clothes?" - Oscar de la Renta

Fashion shows are a circus. Granted, they're inspiring and electric—the culmination of months of hard labor and magic—but the curtain's long been pulled back on those 10 minutes of shimmering mastery to reveal the s***show behind the scenes. (If you've ever been backstage and bludgeoned by a photographer whilst trying to grab a post-show quote, you'll know what I'm talking about.)

Industry insiders (not entirely sure who that even refers to anymore) are demanding change and according to this Wall Street Journal article with NYFW show-runners IMG Fashion, some of that manic hullabaloo will be remedied. "It was becoming a zoo," says Catherine Bennett, IMG's SVP and managing director of WSJ. "What used to be a platform for established designers to debut their collections to select media and buyers has developed into a cluttered, often cost-prohibitive and exhausting period for our industry."

What’s black and white and cute all over? The whole heap of starlets that came out for the end of Paris Fashion Week, that’s what. Lena Dunham, the sisters Fanning (Elle and Dakota), Dianna Agron and Hailee Steinfeld all popped up at some swanky shows in the City of Lights and—shocker—they each looked sleek beyond their years.

Dunham made her Fashion Week debut today (sitting in the front row of Miu Miu, NBD), and oh, what a debut it was! The Girls star looked chic in a plain black shift dress and a red leather coat, with chunky gold accessories and a black Prada clutch. She was joined in the front row of the row by Glee’s Dianna Agron, who wore a navy chiffon wrap dress and a black coat with a sparkly embellished collar. Also, that clutch. Agron was kind enough to tweet a sneak peek of Miu Miu’s new prints to her loyal followers, which apparently includes a ton of “meow meows.”

Believe it or not, Fashion Month Week is still going on. Like, there are clothes and shows we still haven't seen. It's madness! Chanel's Spring/Summer 2014 show was this morning and, obvi, celebs flocked out in full force to peep what Karl Lagerfeld has been dreamin' up. Katy Perry and Rita Ora sat front row and wore flowers and feathers, respectively: together they combine for a beautiful, nature-scene still life.

Iggy Azalea

Fashion Week has turned into Fashion Three Weeks for Iggy Azalea. After sitting front row at a number of New York Fashion Week shows and performing at DKNY's 25th Anniversary Party, Iggy has surfaced in Milan and, oh, on Philipp Plein's runway. Plein's website describes Iggy as the ideal woman, "poised between haute couture tailoring and a mood that is unashamedly hip hop," so it only makes sense that she kicked-off the show with a live performance of "Work," wearing a short, structured, and slit-bearing dress. Iggy ditched her recently debuted pin-up style bangs for a sleek and tight bun and kept her makeup au naturel.

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