    Skirting the Issue Models’ hips may have a circumference smaller than our thighs, but their skirts don’t. This spring it’s all about full skirts — the bigger, the better. Vera Wang’s purple-blue skirt is a fresh take on Dior’s new look. Behnaz Sarafpour’s belted dresses add just enough volume to be sexy — not hippy. Thakoon’s bright-pink skirt ballooned down the runway, making this spring a rare gift to big bottoms.

    Fashion Week Is All Fugged Up We were such innocents a mere eight days ago. Times were much simpler then; we had hope in our hearts and an unfailing optimism that our job covering celebrities in Fashion Week’s front rows would be like shooting fish in a barrel, minus the ricochet. Even though not as many famous faces showed up as we’d have liked, we managed to come out the other end a very happy, sated pair. After all, we love clothes, Champagne, and sandwiches, and we got a lot of all three this week. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights of our second stint covering the celebrity turnout at Bryant Park — and, yes, of the 37 shows we saw, we did like a lot of the clothes.

    Zip It Good It won’t be hard to slip into next season’s dresses with so many exposed zippers. Though his overall show got tepid reviews, Derek Lam was dead-on in incorporating visible zippers into most looks. Carlos Miele’s dark, ruched dresses came with a sexy zipper up the front. And Behnaz Sarafpour highlighted her external zippers all the more with bright yellow trim on an otherwise subdued gray dress. So come fall, remember to zip up.

    Ten Things We Liked on Tuesday 1. The trouser trend. It marches on, and we’re thrilled. 2. Derek Lam’s newly slick vibe, expressed in exposed zippers, stovepipe trousers, and a super-chic, minimalist palette. 3. Also: props to the model who lost a heel and kept right on going, on one shoe and one tippy-toe. She barely missed a beat.
