Selfies aren’t just for the layfolk. Even celebrities take them now and again, and last night’s extravagant, punk-themed Met Gala — corresponding with the museum’s latest Costume Institute exhibit, Punk: Chaos to Couture — was an opportune time for the glitterati to take to social media with pictures of their dresses, hairdos, nails, and other accessories (including friends and other fabulous people).

Oh and, erm, Alicia Keys in a bathrobe. … Read More
With New York Fashion Week drawing to a close, we thought we’d hand out a few unofficial awards to recap the week of mayhem and highlight what stood out in and around the collections. Given the branded whirlwind the event’s become, we decided to focus back on the art of it all, lest anyone forgot their proverbial way in the cab between Milk and Cafe Gitane.
