Looks from the Kimberly Ovitz show during New York Fashion Week.

From the models' twisted, tightly woven hair to the graphic print dresses to the leather, sheer, and layered separates, the message comes across loud and clear: you don't want to mess with the Kimberly Ovitz girl. "She's a confident strong woman that believes less is more," the designer told us before her show today at New York Fashion Week. "She can be edgy but also minimal." In other words she's tough AND and effortlessly cool, a quality which also spills over to her enviable wardrobe. "This season is all about natural defense mechanisms," Kimberly explained of her Fall/Winter collections. "I looked to animals and insects and their innate protection systems; there's lots of layers which are inspired by shells, a lot of vivid colors inspired by nature, and the result is very dangerous looking."

Kimberly Ovitz Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week.

All right New York Fashion Week. We get it. It's becoming all too obvious that next fall/winter will be dominated by LOADS of furry hairy looks. And not just in your conventional coat shapes either. We'll get into it more at the end of the week with our trends wrap-ups, but this particular instance is begging to be singled out. The majority of Kimberly Ovitz's fall 2012 collection was long-lined, drapey urbanwear with sprinklings of sheers and knubbly sweaters, but a few looks were dressed with choice long-haired accessories. While most of them were slung crossbody, adding some interesting dimension to the outfit, this lucky model was outfitted with her own weave-adorned choker. We're not sure what the vision was behind this neck beard, but we do know that it's distracting from the rest of this gold lurex outfit. Also, if you add a Fu Manchu, this girl is a little bit channeling Confucius, AMIRITE??

Taylor Jacobson landed on the fashion scene as the sassy, impeccably-dressed, no-nonsense stylist assistant from Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project. But after four years of working with celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe (and dressing celebs like Demi Moore and Molly Sims), two seasons of reality television, and one buzzed-about breakup with her former boss, the Los Angeles-based Taylor is making her own way, styling on a number of movies and commercials and working with a host of private clients. Now, she’s also trying her hand at design, collaborating with Kasil to create a line of jeans, which are now available in stores like Bloomingdale’s, Ron Herman, and online at Kasil Workshop for $119 to $195. Last night, we talked to Taylor to get her take on denim, California-girl style, and back-to-school fashion. Oh, and did she watch this week’s third season premiere of her ex-boss’s Bravo show? Read on to find out. Read More...

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