  25. the fab life
    Fabiola Beracasa Parties at Bungalow 8, Wears DVF to the DVF Show Socialite and CIRCA creative director Fabiola Beracasa will file regular reports on her Fashion Week experience. The Fab life is taxing, so we’re still catching up with her weekend. Coming soon: Monday. On Saturday, I was sent two bags full of Rock & Republic jeans (which I love) to wear to the show. I tried on about ten pairs until I finally decided on jean shorts and black tights. I went to the show with two of my close friends from London — Camilla Al-Fayed and Jamie Diner. The show started very late, and it was … well, let’s just say we had fun. 12:30 a.m. We all went to Bungalow 8 where we met up with basically all of New York! We hung out until 4 a.m., and then we all went home to get some much-needed sleep.

    Girls of a FeatherFrom left: Sari Gueron, Marchesa, Thakoon.Getty Images and Imaxtree.com Feathers are lending a touch of exotic whimsy to the fall collections. Sari Gueron added edge to her sweeping black evening gown with tuffs of black feathers at the neck and hemline. Thakoon punched up his cocktail attire with a feathered knee-length skirt. Marchesa’s plumage — the most understated — was offered along the bust for a beautiful, swanlike effect. And while Rock & Republic’s Muppet dress did offer an entire skirt made of peacock fringe, it’s good to remember less is more.

    Don’t Blame the Naturally Skinny ModelsBackstage at Rock & Republic on Saturday, model May Andersen talked with New York’s Jada Yuan about anger management, annoying stewardesses, and, of course, skinny models. Thin models, says May, are getting lumped together with anorexic models — a completely different breed: “You’re always going to have girls that are starving themselves, and that’s not naturally skinny girls’ faults.” Of course not. Watch the video.

    The Collection for Prostitutes We’ve All Been Waiting For If you had told us yesterday that in 24 hours we’d be privy to a fashion show that made Kimora Lee Simmons look like Michael Kors, we’d have patted you on the back, poured you a cup of coffee, and called you a cab, because clearly you needed to go sleep it off.
