Hilary Swank Hits The Spot With Michael Kors

Hilary Swank shows her spots at the Couture Council Award luncheon honoring Michael Kors

Fashion Week is here! And what better way to celebrate than with food!? Ha!

Hilary Swank showed off her sartorial spots on Wednesday afternoon for the Couture Council Award luncheon honoring Michael Kors.

Wearing a blue leopard print dress, the actress was all smiles as she posed next to the man of the hour outside Lincoln Center before presenting him with the Artistry award.

To balance out the wildness of her frock, Hilary kept her accessories simple, opting for black sandals and a matching clutch.

We think it's a very luncheon-appropriate look, especially in the concrete jungle!

What about U???

Ciaté Did NOT Invent The "Caviar Manicure"

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueChanelNails

Dayum, and here we thought Ciaté was doing something unique.

A few months ago, we were super excited to announce the new trend of nail art called, the "Caviar Manicure," but to our surprise, the nail company that claimed to have invented the style is just a poser!

EEK!

According to a number of bloggers that write about nail polish, Ciaté sent cease and desist letters ordering them to remove their how-to posts on the caviar manicure.

However, bloggers beg to differ

New FIT Exhibit To Honor Gay Designers

fit-museum-to-celebrate-gay-designers.jpg

The Fashion Institute of Technology's Museum will be introducing a new exhibit that will celebrate gay designers, which means it will feature pretty much almost every designer ever, right?

Ha! Okay, not really, but we can't ignore the fact that there are a lot of gay designers and icons in the fashion industry.

Chief Curator Valerie Steele will be heading the "Queer Style: From the Closet to the Catwalk" exhibit, which is said to honor gay designers throughout history.

She explains:

"Everybody knows that there’s lots of gay people in fashion, and there have been lots of gay designers: Dior, Saint Laurent, Versace, et cetera. The idea is to [think] consciously to put the gayness back into fashion history and say, 'Why are there so many gay people in fashion?' and 'Is there a gay aesthetic?' and 'What have been the influences of having so many gay people in fashion?'"

Seems like an interesting connection, one that we would like to see displayed at the museum.

And, hopefully, we'll able to to when the exhibit is opens at FIT next year.

Couture queen Daphne Guinness is getting her own exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology!

For those wondering why, FIT explains:

"Because she is fearless about wearing the most extreme clothes and shoes, but is no mere clothes horse. Because she is a serious collector of couture, who is also a creative force in her own right. Because she is an extraordinary individual whose perspective on fashion is unique and important."

The exhibit will feature 100 pieces from Daphne's own wardrobe including pieces by Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaïa, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, John Galliano for Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh, Valentino as well as her own designs.

Daphne's exhibit kicks off September 16th and runs through January 7th.

Martha Stewart: Coming To A Mall Near You?

Martha Stewart is looking to expand her empire by opening her own retail stores.

The queen of crafts, who has over 40,000 products for sale, mentioned the possibility last week during a Q&A at FIT's Executive Women in Fashion event.

We're kind of surprised she didn't do this sooner.

Would U shop at Martha's store???
