Cognac Wellerlane Loves Fur, Poodles, and Fake Eyelashes

Fashion Week is as much about the characters outside the tents as the models and designers inside. On Friday, Amy Larocca found "TV personality" Cognac Wellerlane, who showed off her fur coat — "Real fur! I don't care" — and gave a quick tutorial in how to apply inch-long fake eyelashes.

Joy James Keeps It Simple in J. Mendel

‘Vogue’ Accessories Editor Sylvana Soto-Ward Loves a Bit of Color

While New York style can be found on any corner, there's no safer bet for finding flashes of fashion genius than cruising Bryant Park during Fashion Week. Taking a time-out from the tents, Vogue accessories guru Sylvana Soto-Ward shows us precisely why Derek Lam and patent leather can do no wrong.

Video: Fashion Veteran Likes ‘Crap and Couture’

Laura Bush
Fashion editor Debby de Montfort came to Fashion Week well layered. Her tastes range from designer to vintage to H&M — "crap and couture," she says.

Veronica Webb
New York's Amy Larocca found former Revlon model Veronica Webb in the tents, wearing an outfit she chose "based on how warm I could be and how cute I could be at the same time."

Video: Kate Schelter Is Working the Puritan Look

Kate Schelter is a fashion consultant who talked to New York's Amy Larocca about the fun of dressing for fashion shows.

Here's David Robinson: He was the costume designer on Zoolander — which, as he so eloquently puts it, "is to fashion as the world of spying and espionage is to Austin Powers" — not to mention Pollack and Donnie Brasco. He describes his style as "homeless Viking dandy," and he was interviewed by Amy Larocca for the Video Look Book.
