Trend Alert: Long John Leggings

Remember how you used to love your cozy long johns as a kid? emmm and some of us as adults still love hanging around the house in our old school hanes LJ? It's a blast from the past because the comfy gear is making its way into your wardrobe in the form of long john leggings. It's exactly the same feel, the waffle-knit fabric, only this time we're not just wearing them for practicality's sake. These are chic in heather grays and military-inspired olive, or playful in prints and bright colors. Just pair with any of Fall's cool boots and layer under skirts or denim on top; we love them with anoraks and chambray shirts — get cozy-chic! I really love this trend!

Meet The Tom Ford Fashion Show Crashers

A Japanese trio dubbed “The A Girls” have been running around New York Fashion Week being shot at the hottest parties with fashion royalty. They were first picked up by NBC news on a Fashion’s Night Out video, and as the week went on the mystery continued to show up on NYMagazine, the NYPOST, Gawker, and Racked. Their biggest stunt: pulling off sneaking into the uber-exclusive, impossible to get into Tom Ford Fashion Show. The A Girls have crashed the Betsey Johnson After Party, Halston Fashion Show, Tommy Hilfiger 25th Anniversary Party, Juicy Couture Party, Pamela Love Fashion Show and After Party. They have also been photographed mingling with Marc Jacobs, Sarah Jessica Parker, Betsey Johnson, Alexis Bledel, and Johnny Rozs. The A Girls were finally caught when they attempted to crash Tom Ford‘s exclusive runway show. One of the girls claimed to be there for Japanese Vogue editor Mitsuko Watanabe. Afraid that there had been a mistake with the guest list the girls were escorted into the private presentation. With camera’s in hand and no legal privacy contacts to hold them back, the Japanese pop group intended to shoot some of the most coveted photos of fashion week. The A Girls remained at the show for 20 minutes as the room of fashion elite filled. Right before show time, Mitsuko arrived and Tom Ford’s astute publicists quickly realized that there were spies in the room and kicked out the Harijuko hotties.

2011 Spring New York Fashion Week: Michael Kors

Michael Kors let the sun shine in! The mood of his Spring collection is upbeat, beach bright, and polished — all set to the tune of an insane mastermix of "Here Comes the Sun." Model favorites Isabeli Fontana, Carolyn Murphy, Chanel Iman, and Karolina Kurkova looked positively glowing as they strutted their stuff. Kors designed his trademark slouchy-chic pieces in the most luxe fabrics รก la cashmere sweatshirts, linen suits, and leather trench coats. He is the master of relaxed clothes while never having it look sloppy. Big props to the classic use of hot Summer colors — shots of blue, purple, pink, khaki, white, and yellow were radiating from the runway. There were even a few pieces featuring a grassy print!

New York City Fashion Week-Tory Burch

Tory Burch constantly delivers the new classics — collections that introduce something new and edgy, without losing that timeless edge. Her Spring '11 presentation was no exception, only this time she brought a cool '70s vibe to shake things up. Burnt orange, yellow brights, major pinstripes on pants and jackets, a preppy-meets-hippie navy tiered peasant dress, maxi shirt dresses, and crochet details are just a few of the coveted pieces. While her polished sensibility makes its way into the line via metallic belted pencil skirts, printed tees and shorts, and neutrals, it's all so easily wearable — we can't get enough.
