Former Bust cover gal and pipe belting extraordinaire Beth Ditto is bringing a coat of a different color ( and size!) to a closet near you. Made famous for her in your face, electric and kooky stage presence as front woman for dance punk band The Gossip, Ditto proves that she can work the runway just as good as the dance floor.
This week, the collection consisting of 21 pieces featuring skirts,dresses, tops, and even a jacket hit UK based retailer Evans. Read More

Search "Betty White" on youtube and amidst clips of her referring to Sarah Palin as a "crazy bitch" on Craig Ferguson's show, making fun of the Facebook-mania when she hosted Saturday Night Live, and calling herself a whore on The George Lopez Show, you will now find a recently released promotional video for her clothing line, a collection of t-shirts and hoodies sporting images of Betty's very own face. The clip features White as a far-from-polite fashion designer taking us on a behind-the-scenes tour of her sweatshop-like factory. Read More

The NYC blog does a virtual time warp as it takes a look back at three memorable decades of fashion: the 1960s, ‘50s and ‘40s, and the couture coveted by women around the world.

One somewhat unusual event this Fashion Week took place Sunday at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, with the screening of Voula Duval's debut short "The Trophy Wife." "The Trophy Wife" follows an Upper East Side woman's chance meeting with a "tomboy" music producer, and ends with the two women's new-york-minute romance. Now I'm fairly new to this whole thing, but it seems to me that short films by first-time directors, not to mention short films by female directors with an almost entirely female cast, don't often open with a red carpet and an event.
