  • 02/13/12--15:00: Edun's Punky Prints
  • Edun's creative director Sharon Wauchob has managed to produce a Fall/Winter 2012 collection with cool, punky separates that aren't too fussy. Together, the fusion -- pixilated, graphic print dresses, structured vests, shiny down outerwear and pointy bi-color boots -- seems like a natural ensemble for late nights in the city. See the photo gallery above for backstage photos of the Edun runway show.

    Taking a break from Fashion Week calorie-counting, we headed to the Columbus Ave. Shake Shack last night for some much-needed sustenance and a private party for Mark "the Cobrasnake" Hunter's collaboration with Vans and Parisian concept boutique Colette. The famed burger joint was dressed to look like a children's birthday party, complete with coloring-contest place mats and scratch-and-sniff stickers, and attendees included Cobrasnake sidekick Jonny Makeup as well as photographer Todd Selby and director Philip Andelman, who is married to Colette's creative director, Sarah Lerfel. "I may be small, but I do like [me] some burgers," Lerfel said over a plate of fries. "I like them simple. I'm a girl, so, I don't like when they're too messy and overflowing with grease." On the other hand, Hunter likes his juiced up and stacked to the sky. "When I designed the pair [of shoes] with VANS for Colette, I had just had a dream about buns on my feet, hence the burger-as-shoes. I don't know how it came about, but, I've always had a thing for big, greasy burgers, so, it was just right... you can see all the layers." Along with the halved-burgers served to party-goers (fashion week portion control?) was a milkshake created by Mark himself ("the Cobrashake"), which consisted of chocolate, hazelnut and raspberry. It went over so well with partygoers that employees were overheard considering adding it to the menu.

    The collaborative VANS for Colette by the Cobrasnake arrive at Colette this March.

    Designer Chris Benz showed his holiday-party inspired F/W '12 collection late this afternoon and, here, we take you inside the model casting for the show. Check out the video above with Paper's Abby Schreiber in which Benz discuss how he chooses his models ("it's always instinctual") and his collection's American-girl feel.

    andre_vera wang.jpgAs PAPERMAG made our way into Vera Wang's show this morning, we immediately spotted André Leon Talley, curiously for the first time this Fashion Week. Looking dashing as ever, Talley explained that he'd been in L.A. at the Grammys all weekend and that Vera Wang's show would be "the first thing I've seen!" And how was the fashion at the Grammys?  "I loved Rihanna's dress. Armani," Talley replied with efficiency. And did he think fashion at the upcoming Oscars would be as notoriously "safe" as people predict? "Always! They play it safe at the Oscars. Except for people like Tilda Swinton, who's great. And I don't think Viola [Davis] and Octavia [Spencer] will play it safe.  They will give unexpected surprises."


    viola davis_vera wang.jpg
    As luck would have it, Ms. Davis was also in attendance at Vera Wang's show and we couldn't resist finding out if Talley's predictions were on the mark. Though she wouldn't divulge too many details about her gown (was her presence at the show an indication that it'd be Vera Wang?), she did open up about her selection process. "I weigh [husband Julius Tennon's] opinion. I go on my instinct and I have a stylist but I always feel like on the red carpet, it's got to be dramatic, but dramatic in a way that I can handle. If it's beyond anything I can handle, I'll just embarrass myself," Davis said.  "I choose my dress really early on and I stick with it.  No one can sway my opinion. If you sway it two days before, that's going to make me nervous."

    On her style, Davis said, "I like feeling feminine in a dress. So often in my life I don't feel [feminine] so I like a dress that forces me into that mode of feeling pretty and feminine." She added, "My big thing now is color. If I can manage that, right there is 50% of the battle. Color on my skin really pops."

    And how is she holding up during awards season (Davis had just arrived in New York from London where she attended the BAFTAs)? "I'm getting no sleep. As a matter of fact, I fell asleep while they were doing my hair...with my mouth open!"

    Trina 3.5.jpg
    If you've spied superstar celeb stylist June Ambrose being trailed by a camera crew this Fashion Week, that's because Ambrose is currently filming her new show Styled by June for VH1. The premise of the show is this: celebrities whose style could use a little... makeover, come to June. June works her magic. Fabulousness ensues. 

    One such style-stunted star who appears on the show is Trina, aka "Da Baddest Bitch" in hip hop. Known for wearing skin-baring leather halter tops and thigh-high boots for the better part of a decade, the "Pull Over My Ass is Too Fat," rapper was in the market for a more high-fashion look to celebrate her new electro-pop sound on her upcoming album. Here's a sneak peek at Trina's new rocker-chic style, which will be put to the test when she performs her new single "Outerspace," on the show in March. Below, we asked the Miami-based MC about performing in her new covered-up style, working with the fabulous Miss June and her fellow "5 Star Bitch" Nicki Minaj's controversial Grammy performance. 

    Was it hard to trust June with your style?  

    As an artist, sometimes you're afraid to take risks because you want to keep control of your image, but I felt very comfortable with June and I got to a place where I felt like she knew exactly what she wanted and she just saw this style and the style matched the song and we just went for it. I was really amazed and I've decided to incorporate some of the look she created for me into my future project and look. I just love the edge of it. I mean, I'm used to being edgy ,but she just took it over the top. It was my first time wearing a mohawk. I was a little weirded out by it and I don't know if I could rock a mohawk everyday, but it was so fun. I wouldn't mind trying it again. 

    I know you're used to showing off some serious skin when you perform. Was it hard to get used to wearing more clothes? 

    I honestly have never performed in that many layers before, so I was thinking, "Do not trip over this skirt, do not fall." When we rehearsed the night before at the rehearsal hall I had no idea what the outfit was going to be and then when I saw it I was like, "uh, June, am I going to be able to perform in all of this?" But it worked out perfectly. It's really all about the wardrobe -- it takes you into that element, kicking in your alter ego and makes you go out and bring out the best in you. I've definitely had some great wardrobe performances and I've had some wardrobe malfunctions... 

    Really? What's the most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction you've had?  

    It was just this past July in Tampa at this gigantic radio show with a bunch of artists and I get on stage and I was wearing this one-piece catsuit. As soon as I got on stage the top completely fell down and I couldn't get it to stay up, so I'm standing there trying to hold it up with one hand and perform with the other. I wanted to cry, but I was just thinking, "This is so many people, I cannot let them down." so during a dance break I went to the side of the stage and there were these promotional T-shirts and I thought this is going to totally destroy my outfit but I cannot give up on my show, so I put the T-shirt on over the outfit and just rocked it out. I know the pictures were horrible but the performance was amazing.  

    What made you decide that it was time for a new look? 

    I've done five albums with so many different looks and I just think that this time with the music and the sound -- it's a lot of Euro, it's a lot of techno, it's a lot of house and dance and I think that the look has brought out a different phase in me. After five albums, you go into the studio and you think, "What am I going to cook up next?" It's easy to do a sexy record, it's easy to do a raw explicit record, it's easy to do a pretty love ballad but I just wanted to try something different. I love dance music, I love techno, I love that and I'm in these different spots and I'm performing and everything is like fist pumping and so it just gets you crazy and erotic and wild.  

    Speaking of new looks, Nicki Minaj sure shook it up at the Grammys. What did you think of it?   

    You know, you look at an artist and you think, "What are they going to do next?" and I know for Nicki that performance was a whole other phase, another step. It took a lot of thought for her to go in a totally different direction and it so surpassed anything she's ever done. I was really amazed and thought, "Wow." I love when people dare to be different and dare to try something that's not expected. If you get the chance to do that I think you should go as far as you can go. And she went there.

    Papermag's been in full New York Fashion Week mode for the past week, but we're taking a little time out from it all to write a post about food. Or, in this case, a movie about food. Specifically, Steregoum editor Amrit Singh's new short film, Dosa Hunt, in which he and musicians Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Vijay Iyer (Vijay Iyer Trio), Ashok Kondabolu (Das Racist), Himanshu Suri, (Das Racist), Alan Palomo (Neon Indian), and Anand Wilder (Yeasayer) travel around New York City in search of the perfect dosa. For those unfamiliar with the South Indian staple dish, a dosa is a savory, crepe-like pancake that is best hunted by indie rock dudes in a festive van. Check out this trailer for the film, out in Spring.

    Mr. Mickey chats with the always fabulous and fun Betsey Johnson backstage before her Swinging '60s-esque show about her eating habits ("four shrimpa during day, and then go out  at night and have a nice meal"), keeping her prices down ("In the '60s I said, I'm never buying a piece of clothing that costs more than a round trip to Puerto Rico") and her "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"-inspired outfit ("I had to get as sparkly as I could").

    Screen shot 2012-02-14 at 6.27.29 PM.pngAlthough fashion, as Rachel Zoe says, is a cruel mistress, it is an industry that is driven by fantasy, passion and hopeless love. At the Donna Karan F/W 2012 show we caught up with two of the industry's top players, Edward Enninful and Adriana Lima, to see if their romance with fashion was surpassed by romance in real life. 

    Enninful, W's Fashion and Style Director, told PAPERMAG, "I like to think I am a romantic," though he couldn't pinpoint his most romantic moment.  Enninful must either make sweeping romantic gestures all the time or else have a terrible memory because his friend immediately cited one instance where he was "waiting for [his] boyfriend in a bath of milk and cheerios."

    Perhaps that was all the kindling his mind needed because Enninful soon remembered a time when he was "arriving from Milan once, my house was in darkness and I thought there was nobody home. I walked in and my partner had put rose petals all the way up to the terrace and set up a candle-lit dinner."

    For her part, Adriana Lima, the love and lust of many, doesn't consider herself a romantic.  "I am more the adventurous type," she confessed with a wink. "I actually got married on Valentine's Day three years ago. I will be spending it with my family and then my husband and I will have dinner. There will be lingerie involved, perfume involved and chocolate involved."

    Michelle Harper Thom.jpg"I spent many, many hours in libraries writing my thesis," Michelle Harper said, as we waited in the New York Public Library's third floor corridor for Thom Browne's F/W 2012 show to begin. "They are a gift, a gift to mankind." Harper, who was dressed in a sparkly outfit of yellow and white stripes, studied at NYU and wrote her thesis on "a crossover between architecture, ethnomusicology and trade routes in Asian art." Picturing this fashion icon, studying amidst mortals -- not unlike the crowd of students and tourists who had started to gather around us -- was an amusing image.

    Harper finds herself back at the library each season for Browne's show. "I have been to each show, and I am always blown away," she said. "It is the highlight of Fashion Week for me. He is very intellectual, so I think a library is a great match for him. He puts on a surprise every time, you know, it's just beautiful." As we entered the candle-lit room and "Hallelujah" played through speakers, lying before us were ten open caskets with grey-suited models inside. Another model strutted to a podium and announced that the 10 girls before us had "died from fashion, and every six months they dream of fashion." We were about to witness their fantasy. Thom Browne was looking for beauty in death, and although he certainly seemed to have found it, the idea was hard for the audience to digest in the wake of Whitney Houston's surprise and untimely passing. Leaving the presentation we overheard Lynn Yaeger saying, "it's just after the whole Whitney Houston thing, do I really want to be going to a funeral today?"

    leighton_meester.jpgThough Leighton Meester appears every bit as much of a fashionista as her Gossip Girl character, Blair Waldorf, we were relieved to learn at the Vera Wang show that her sartorial taste wasn't always so savvy. 

    Meester told PAPERMAG: "I made a lot of my own clothes when I was younger.  I would do the old iron-on patches and then I would have a big shirt with a scrunchie. I'd also wear neon green tights with matching shorts and nylon hair ties for the side ponyyail on St. Patrick's Day.  That type of thing.

    Stars!  They are were just like us!

    Ohne Titel's Alexa Adams and Flora Gill introduced a collection of stark black and white pieces that looked dramatic and never boring for their Fall/Winter 2012 show. Cobalt blue was woven into the collection in the form of bi-color suits and striped knit, and snoods and tailored jackets were inspired by textile artist Sheila Hicks. The showstoppers, however, were the fur pieces, including a striped fox fur coat and black-on-black cropped jacket with fur collar and sleeves. Check out our gallery of backstage and runway photos above.

    The Badgley-Mischka Fall/Winter 2012 runway show earlier today featured beauty looks that were all about crossing to the dark side. Lips were painted in darker shades of moody bordeaux, super-smokey smokey eyes got an update with gold glittery liner and brows were grown out and dramatic. It was very extra-in-Interview with a Vampire and we're on board. Whether Badgley Mishka-attendee Joan Rivers would ever give these beauty looks her stamp of approval on the red carpet is, of course, a totally different story.

    Model and actress Dree Hemingway chats with Mr. Mickey about her collaboration with French fashion line Sandro (for whom she designed a 10-piece capsule collection). They talked inspiration (California rock-climbers), how she hopes the line works as pieces "you can just pick off of your floor, the dirtier the better and throw on in the summer" and her hopes for a bi-coastal lifestyle ("the city if you're here too long can drive you insane.").

    Last night at Milk Studios, Zero + Maria Cornejo showed her full range of futuristic sensibilities, in colors that left many thinking of anything but fall or winter. With this vibrant focus on futuristism, her F/W 2012 collection emphasized bold shapes and flowing fabrics. Her full talents as a designer could be seen in the seemingly simpler dresses, such as those made from green satin crepe or double stretch georgette, which came together into feminine geometric patterns, while her experimentation with materials -- shearling, suri, and stretch leather, to name a few -- meant that the lab coats and jumpers were (at the height of hi-tech fashion), enought to brighten anyone's future.

    5df6f86687a42404070f6a70670019c0.jpgIf there's something PAPER loves it's equal parts talent and humor. (Just see our latest PAPER cover!) So when we spotted YouTube cover band-turned-pop comets, Karmin, at the Betsey Johnson show yesterday we immediately went up to them. Amy Heidemann said of her Fashion Week experience, "I'm from Nebraska and Nick's from Maine. And we don't have these [fashion shows] there. We're super excited to have even been invited and we're told sitting front row's a pretty big deal for people... sorry!" Apology accepted.

    Male-half, Nick Noonan, who recently popped the question to his band mate, explained of their meteoric rise to pop fame, "Doing SNL this past weekend was totally surreal. Everyone grew up watching the show and to have been asked to perform on it was entirely mind-blowing. I hope we did it justice." And they did -- according the response they've received from the highest of pop royalty. "Kanye's expressed how much he's feeling us. We'd totally work with him if he asked," Heidemann said. In the meantime, the pair who met at Berklee College of Music, are prepping their debut album which will be released in the next few months on L.A. Reid's division of Epic Records. "It feels like a week ago we were singing Chris Brown into a webcam, then a couple of days ago we did SNL, and now anything's possible really," Noonan said. "We're just riding the wave. We're having all of this documented with film crews and at the rate this is going, if we tried to sell the story as a movie script people probably wouldn't believe it."

    While talking Oscars fashion shop with Andre Leon Talley and Viola Davis backstage at Vera Wang this morning, we noticed lots of models sporting dark, exaggerated eyebrows. We love a dramatic brow, and, more so, love this photo by Alexander Thompson of a Wang model getting her makeup done at the show.

    In an interview with Mr. Mickey this morning, J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons told us the brand takes part in Fashion Week to show off "to show the grown-up version of J. Crew," and, indeed, the F/W '12 collection is all about their trademark prints on prints shown through a cleanly edited lens of sophistication. We've always loved Lyon's style and, even better, models in the show were styled to look like her -- a concept we can get behind. Check out Atisha Paulson's shot from the presentation earlier today.

    tavi-rodarte.jpgThis morning at the Rodarte F/W 2012 show, we caught up with wunderkind blogger/editor Tavi Gevinson to discuss Sunday evening's Neil Young performance, "lazy-DIY" and her high school's bug infestation.

    Congratulations on your performance on Sunday night. How'd it go for you?

    It went well, it was a lot of fun.

    Were you nervous?

    I was kind of nervous, but there was a lot of camera flashing and that made it all feel very distant, which ended up working with how the song is.

    How did you prepare for it?

    Well, I already knew the song, and I practiced a little. I took voice lessons for a few years. Not, like, in preparation for this, but I am a seasoned theater kid.

    Have you thought of starting a girl band?

    Well, my friends at school and I have a band...

    Do you guys have a name? What do you play?

    Our name? I am not going to tell you! We're still...uhhhhh you know.... trying to develop our sound (mockingly). It's just a mix of things that we like, it's strange. We need a drummer!

    Maybe Meg White's available?

    I am sure she would have fun coming to a high school to play the Awkward Music Festival.

    I like your headband, where did you get it?

    I made it. It's crap store flowers. I only like lazy DIY. I need a book that has DIYs for lazy people where you don't have to buy anything; it's just all stuff you already own. So like these flowers and the headband I already had. I was too lazy to even glue them! They are just connected with wires.

    What's the most interesting thing you have learned being the editor of Rookie?

    The most interesting thing to me is whenever I don't know what we should write about, I just think about whatever is plaguing me as a teenage girl, and then those always seem to be the posts that girls always relate to the most.

    How do you feel about turtlenecks?

    Turtlenecks. I like a turtleneck... well, I will just quote Neil from Freaks and Geeks, "Everyone looks good in turtlenecks. That's the point."

    Have you ever had to wear one for a hickey?

    No! I do have many hickeys from the bug infestation at our school though. So I am very popular with the termites and cockroaches.

    An infestation? Gross!

    Yeah, it's a problem. Now, you can't eat outside of the lunchroom now. You can't have lunch in a teacher's room or anything because they are, like, everywhere.

    What do you like about growing up in the Midwest?

    I like the Midwest because you can ask people, strangers, how their day was and everything. It is just friendlier. It's creepy. In New York people are more self-aware. Either they grew up in New York and are really tough or they come here and know what they want. I like that there is less consciousness about how things will be perceived in small towns in the Midwest. People don't try to be provocative, but will end up being really funny or having a weird secret.

    Michael Bastian, in creating the F/W 2012 collection for GANT, titled, "The Lucky Ones," had to look no further than his own memories. For yesterday's presentation, Exit Art was transformed into a very stylish tableau vivant of his mid-1980s college days in Boston, replete with street lamps, a motor scooter, a boxing ring, and even snow -- generated by the snow machine that dusted the runway of his eponymous main collection several days ago.

    The layered looks -- university blazers on top of cardigans on top of twill shirts for men, anorak hoodies and skinny cargo pants and pompom hats for women -- weren't just waxing nostalgic simply for the sake of nostalgia, or fashion. He wants us to feel lucky -- lucky for where we are, where we've been, and where we're going. Bastian wants to remind us of how lucky we are, doing so with a special coin he created for the collection that's been incorporated into each outfit.

    It's an odd sentiment, for a designer to remind us with clothes that we are lucky, that there are certain times and places we'll remember, and possibly not just for the pullovers or shirts that came with them. For Bastian, this sentimental journey took him back to the collegiate outerwear of his time in Boston. And how lucky we are for it.

    timanderic_feb2012.jpgYesterday at the premiere of Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie at Williamsburg's Nitehawk Cinema, PAPERMAG had a bit of a chat with the wacky funnymen.  We were expecting Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim to bombard us with jokes, antics, and non sequiturs but instead we found ourselves conversing with two very professional gents (you can see they even wore suits for the occasion).  Were these really the same guys shaving each other in a bathtub and getting penis piercings in the first 10 minutes of the movie (which led to a handful of Sundance filmgoers to walk out)?  Though they played it straight during our Q&A, we still managed to get some goofy nuggets out of them including what they were like when they met in college ("we were alternative"), how they snagged Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis in their flick and what the hell happened at Sundance.   

    First things first, what happened at Sundance?
    Eric:  A couple people walked out but people walk out of every movie at Sundance.  We enjoy it, to be honest with you.  There are certain moments in the movie that are meant to be these nightmare, roller coaster, fucked-up moments and to see a bunch old-timers get up and pack their bags, we like that.
    Tim: It was just some fuddy-duddies who walked into the wrong movie.

    Where did the idea for the movie come from?  Were you guys high like you were in the movie's opening scene?
    E: No, we're very sober writers.  We made 50 episodes of the TV show and we've made three short films and we've always wanted to make a movie.  That's always been the ultimate goal.  We sat down and work-shopped ideas, came up with storylines, characters and what we were going to do.  It's a pretty traditional writing process.

    Tell me about how you guys got Will Ferrell, John C. O'Reilly, Zack Galifianakis and Will Forte to be in the movie.
    E: We've worked with all these guys in our sketch show.  Will Ferrell's company, Funny Or Die, co-produced it and he asked us to write him into the movie, which was a really awesome thing.  A lot of the guys are our friends and we collaborated before so it was kind of natural that they would do it.

    How did you guys meet?
    T: We went to Temple University and were both in the same dorm floor together. We just had this community of dudes who had the same sensibility and we just kept doing little stuff together and working together.

    What was Eric like in college?
    T: He was a straight-edge, vegetarian hardcore dude.

    What was Tim like?
    E: Tim had longer hair, baggier clothes, a funky vibe.

    Were you guys 'crunchy' guys?
    T: We were alternative dudes.  Alternative
    E: We were our own unique [people].
    T: There were a lot of tough guys on campus and I said something like "We better be careful how obnoxious we get around here," and a friend said, "You don't realize--those people are so freaked out by us.  We don't have anything to worry about.  We look like freaks."

    As comedians, who are your favorite people or stories in the news right now to riff on?
    E: I want to say really inappropriate things right now but I'm not going to.
    T: I always enjoy Pat Robertson.  I was watching his show today at the hotel and this woman he had on was this crazy lunatic Christian preacher who had a buzzer that would go off every 10 minutes that would remind her to praise God.  Every 10 minutes.  And treated that like, "Oh, that's a great idea.  Why didn't I think of that?"  Idiots.

    Major Lazer, "Keep it Going Louder" -- directed by Eric Wareheim

    I really enjoy the music videos you've made.  Do you have any new ones in the works?
    E: [We have] two new videos in 2012 but they're Top Secret.  

    No!  Tell us!
    E:
    I can't.  I can't.  

    C'mon!
    E:
    I'm shooting one in Jamaica, I'll tell you that much.  You can probably figure it out.
