Remember life living in the college dorms? The best part of dorm life was lounging around with new found friends. There's much more fashionable dormwear now than when I was a collegiate, so I asked you to help me find them.
I started you off with this Marc by Marc Jacobs Tank ($67) because it's a pretty fun way to start layering. Let's see what you all came up with!
Heather Thomson, who once designed for labels like Sean John, JLO by Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonce's House of Deréon, is doing her own thing. Yummie Tummie may sound like a flavor of ice cream, but it's actually a collection of body shapers designed to minimize the curves that come as a result of eating too much ice cream!
"I had some big babies. With my first, I gained 65 pounds and with my second, I gained 68 pounds. Of course, I lost a lot of the weight, but my stomach just never seemed to get flat again," Thomson said. If this sounds like a predicament you're in, get yourself this Yummie Tummie Tank ($62), which comes in a slew of colors. It'll hug you in all the right places.
The initiative is set on inspiring female leaders in developing countries. To aid the effort, DVF has pledged to donate 10 percent of this week's sales in her freestanding stores and on her website, DVF.com, to Vital Voices. She's also hosting talks and special events in her stores during this time. If you're feelin' the woman power this week, shop DVF!
What the Fashion Pack Did Next?
So, the shows are over, but just what will your favorite front rowers be doing next? Elle's new style adviser Chloë Sevigny left Paris yesterday to head back to Hollywood where she will begin filming the new season of Big Love — and of course continue to answer all your fashion dilemmas.
It makes me so happy to see Mischa Barton dressing Fab again. At Paris Fashion Week, the actress partied at Lou Doillon's party for Lee Cooper in a feminine purple, off-shoulder dress. Her pink satin Stella McCartney pumps add to the girlie vibe and provide some overall fanciness.
If you would love to get your hands on a piece from Project Runway, you're in luck: ProjectRunway.com is hosting exclusive auctions of the actual designs right now!
All of the pieces from both Chris and Sweet P's final collections are currently available for bidding through tomorrow. Then, immediately following the season finale (tomorrow!), the original garments designed for the final episode by Rami, Jillian, and Christian will run through March 12, except for this year’s winning collection, which will close March 19.
Maybe even better than getting a piece of the action? A portion of the proceeds from the final collections are set to benefit New York-based The HOPE Program, a career-development program helping homeless and welfare-dependent adults.
"Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Ve Vil, if she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will." Or so the song goes. But personality aside, you've got to give props to Miss De Vil's fashion choices. She really rocks the fur. And though it might not be Dalmatian friendly, it certainly is fierce. Not to mention how she's really rocking the red; her dress, gloves, and shoes are all fab, fab, fab.
No matter what you think of Cruella's view on fur, you can certainly appreciate the film that captures it all. 101 Dalmatians, Walt Disney's original classic animated film, is being released on Mar. 4 for a limited time on 2-Disc Platinum Edition DVD. Not only is this the first time that this timeless film is being released from the infamous Disney Vault this decade, but it's also chock full of all-new bonus material. The fact that Cruella still looks marvelous (or bad, depending on how you look at it) is a testament to the film's everlasting endurance.
