THE NON-FASHION DUDES IN OUR LIVES REVIEW THE NYFW:M SHOWS, DAY 3

In the past, we at Fashionista have sent an eager, curious non-fashion dude to report from the front lines at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, a women’s ready-to-wear show, and, finally, the #menswear extravaganza that is New York Fashion Week: Men’s. This time around, we thought it would be entertaining to ask the non-fashion dudes in our lives — husbands, boyfriends, brothers, platonic pals — whose occupations range from law to tech to television writing what their immediate feelings were about the looks presented on the NYFW:M runways.

Without further ado, we present their snap reviews from the third day of the men’s shows, which they kindly submitted via text message. Enjoy!

2016 BRA TRENDS: 4 Must-Have Styles

And that right there is one of my favourite Seinfeld scenes ever, and since we’re talking bras it’s a pretty clear indication of how far we’ve come in this matter. I’m sure most men still base their whole lives on the D cups, but bras for us have come a long way ladies. They’ve become trendy, cool, edgy, feminine, fashionable. Today you can make a huge fashion statement with just a bra strap.

While we’re still not walking around in our bras (another Seinfeld reference) we’re not that far away either. For the past two years we’ve had the exposed lingerie trend bombarding us with lace, and straps, and sheer fabric from feminine to borderline BDSM styles. Wearing a great bra these days can be part of an outfit and a fashion thing in itself.

So with the lingerie culture and fas...

Having already collaborated big-name performers like Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Beyoncé and K-Pop star G-Dragon, Giuseppe Zanotti is teaming up with world-renowned triple threat Jennifer Lopez for a special line of footwear and accessories to be released early next year. Dubbed “Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez” — with matching hashtag #GiuseppexJennifer — the capsule collection happens to be the Italian luxury brand’s “largest range and most involved partnership to date,” according to WWD. (Past collaborations would usually include one or two exclusive shoe styles.)

“The collection, like Jennifer, is sensual, sophisticated, modern but also playful with a bit of edge,” Zanotti says in a press release...

Mariah Carey is on the cover of Complex
Ahead of the debut of her upcoming E! show, “Mariah’s World,” the pop icon sat down with Complex to discuss her life in the spotlight, her new relationship and how the music industry has changed since she started out. “A lot of rappers don’t have to go through what I had to go through as a singer,” says Carey in the interview. “I was always in a bubble that they put me in, but I was always punching out. It was a tough line to walk.” {Complex}

Elizabeth and James opens its first retail store in L.A.
On the heels of opening their first NYC store for The Row earlier this summer, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are giving the same treatment to their other (more affordable) sister label, Elizabeth and James, with a brand-new flagship space at The Grove in L...

Laurie Hernandez Just Won a Spot on the U.S. Olympic Team…and Your Heart

laurie hernandez gymnast

The freshest face on the Olympic team this year is Laurie Hernandez, the 2015 junior national champion turned senior star. Hernandez just turned 16 this year, which means she was born in 2000. (Feeling old yet?) She hails from Old Bridge, New Jersey and trains at MG Elite with Maggie Haney, a former NCAA gymnastics star.

Here’s a little bit more you should know about this rising star.

Her breakout moment

In 2012, Hernandez was barely 12 years old when she caught the attention of gymnastics fans at the Secret U.S. Classic, a qualifier for the National Championships with this floor routine.

Though the difficulty of the tumbling was low compared to the top junior competitors that year, the young gymnast stood out for t...

WATCH CARA DELEVINGNE CRUSH A RAP BATTLE ON ‘THE LATE LATE SHOW’

As Cara Delevingne continues along her “Suicide Squad” press junket, she’s doing a fantastic job of proving her comedic, screen-commanding talent to the masses — something we fashion folks have loved about her for years — and to the many naysayers who doubt her abilities as an actress. On Wednesday, she visited the set of fellow Brit James Corden’s “The Late Late Show,” where she participated in a rap battle with the host and another young actor on the rise, Dave Franco.

Now, we won’t spoil the good parts for you, but let’s just say Delevingne eviscerates both men on a number of occasions, going so far as to close with the lyric: “You’re both shorter than me and I think that you’re fine, I’ve hooked up with hotter girls than both of you combined...

SO EXCITED! LIVE-STREAMING MY PANTS!

The Webby Awards is very excited honor Ellie Kemper with 2015’s Best Actress award for her hilarious and masterful performance as the title character in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Despite all of the hardships she has faced, Kemper’s Kimmy inhabits a colorful, joyful world. She is unabashedly optimistic without being cloying—a massive comedic feat. Her quirk is undercut by a tenacity to turn her life around and a toughness of character that makes it believable that she will succeed. Simply, it’s Kemper’s nuanced portrayal that makes the series binge-worthy, and that is why we are thrilled to present her with this year’s Webby Award for Best Actress.
