Fashion Week Mayhem

Nigel BarkerHey, ladies! We interrupt our regularly scheduled Weekend Warriors post to report from the front lines at Fashion Week in NYC. So far it’s been a mad dash to Trovata, Jenni Kayne, and Erin Fetherston, who are all delivering breezy nautical looks/chic black and cream short suits and girly organza gowns/and stunning pastel chiffon gowns, respectively. And you “America’s Next Top Model” fans will be pleased to know that I managed to chat up judge/heartthrob Nigel Barker last night. Asked about the new season’s transgender contestant, Nigel noted that while a transgender model may be controversial for some people, in the fashion world it’s really nothing new. He also mentioned that the show filmed to Amsterdam this season, but no word yet on who Tyra & team picks to make the final cut. (And yes, he is as gorgeous in person as he is on TV.)

PS. Don’t miss our guest Q&A this week from Marco Aniello of Marco’s dishing all the details on this season’s top handbag trends, making this a must-read for any single gal in need of some fine new arm candy.
