You guys, I have no explanation for this, but I have been so excited about the Skaist-Taylor label launch for ages—and now it's happened! So the deal is that Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor (a.k.a. the design duo formerly known as The Juicies—yes! They founded Juicy Couture!) sold Juicy to Liz Claiborne years ago and have since gone on to create this totally new boho-rock-chick new label. Check out some of their new looks after the jump.

When I ran into nail guru Essie Weingarten (AKA the woman behind Essie nail polish) backstage at the Costello Tagliapietra, I immediately set out to hunt her down to pick her brain for nail tips. I mean, how could I not? And, of course, she laid a few gems on me, but this one particular tip got a big ol' star next to it—my shorthand for "DO SOMETHING WITH THIS TIP!" What was it? I asked her exactly how long she advises to wait between coats to make sure your polish lasts—a very important question, obviously.

Now that your Valentine's Day hairstyle, gift and meal are all taken care of, it's time to talk makeup. If you're not a red lip girl, then chances are you, you're thinking "smoky eye." Understandable. It's maybe the hottest makeup look ever.

New York fashion week isn't usually known for wild, avant garde statement-making—generally, that sort of thing is left to Paris and designers such as Rei Kawakubo at Comme des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, Yohji Yamamoto, and Belgian fashion houses like Maison Martin Margiela. But last night, master tailor Thom Browne presented a conceptual show—that, depending on your tastes and artistic leanings, you'll probably either love or hate.

You guys remember the fake “Derelicte” campaign from Zoolander, right? The whole concept was about making, uh, derelict and dirty people/things/clothes look chic. Spoiler: It didn’t. However, the “dirt effect” nails at Pamela Love’s fall 2012 presentation were as stylish (and copy-able!) as can be.

I’ve definitely been eyeing all of the new trends making their debut during New York Fashion Week, but in addition to the fall fabrics and chic designs, I’ve also been coveting the models’ hairstyles.  

From messy ponytails to edgy alien-like bouffants, there’s been a little bit of everything. However, I especially loved the thick, gorgeous braids happening over at the Betsey Johnson show.
