What Singer Michael Kors Wants to Be

As celebrities buzzed around the red carpet at the annual amfAR event honoring Janet Jackson and Kenneth Cole, Michael Kors revealed that if he were to be a singer he would be the male version of Joni Mitchell. We could definitely see Michael as a Joni type -- a strong performer rich in diversity, talent, and feminine power.

Ashlee Simpson isn't Looking Like Herself

No one could recognize Ashlee Simpson at Richard Chai’s runway show on Thursday at Lincoln Center in New York City. The pop singer arrived to the tents early this morning in a black fur jacket, eventually making her way to the front row of Chai’s show.  As a few photographers began circling her, many wondered who the mysterious blonde in the glittering black and gold shirt was.

Rocking a blonde ‘do Simpson looked so drastically different that she was almost unrecognizable. Appearing way skinnier than the already slim star we know her to be, her face was quite angular.  “Who is that?” many asked.  After everyone finally figured out who it was, confusion still lingered as to how the “Pieces of Me” singer could look so different. The mystery continues... Fashion darling Theophilus London also hit up Richard Chai’s fashion show this season rocking an urban ensemble with a large black hat, looking quite like himself, we must say.

Designers Timo Weiland Loves Cable

Often citing music as a direct source of inspiration, Timo Weiland continued their love for cool tunes by having Cable, the band fronted by Tracy Antonopoulos, perform at their show. The punk-pop band’s sound wrestled onto the runway with its unrefined melody and freenetic tempo nodding to the unvarnished and military cut collection.

Selena Gomez Looks Chic in a Sweatshirt

Gomez hosted the NEO event, kicking off Fashion Week as the brand’s newest ambassador alongside her on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. Gomez looked grungy yet glamorous in a pair of black trousers paired with sneakers and a sweatshirt. Why can’t we look this enchanting in gym clothes? As part of her efforts to help the brand the “Love You Like A Love Song” singer flexed her creative mussel and helped pick the 30 teen-styled looks featured in the final show. We love her casual dressed down look.  She still shined in it.
