>> Brian Reyes, who showed his first collection for the Spring 2006 season, failed to pop up as usual at New York Fashion Week last month for the Spring 2011 season. According to a source at Reyes, the designer did create a Spring 2011 collection, but he's now focusing on private sales, of which he has seen a major uptick in the last 18 months. When reached for comment on whether Reyes's main line had been discontinued, a spokesperson confirmed that the brand had shifted focus and is currently "working on different projects." [Fashionista]
Designers like Brian Reyes and Rag & Bone showed off a motley of sock-adorned ensembles on their Fall 2010 runways, and we love the look. Grab a pair — our sweet picks come from Calvin Klein, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Urban Outfitters, and Missoni — and layer it over hosiery, or brave the elements and wear them over bare legs.

When it's all said and done, the fiery red frock will be the last one standing. After all, no one dares mess with this hot hue — especially when paired with leopard print heels. However, Victoria Beckham complemented her flaming dress with cork Christian Louboutin platform pumps and gold jewels to a friend's birthday party in London. Sexy.
We prefer wearing our red dresses on the shorter side, but if you're feeling extra zealous, don a longer version to your next fancy outing. Is it just us, or is it getting hot in here?
LeAnn Rimes walked hand in hand with boyfriend Eddie Cibrian after lunching at Nobu in Malibu. Her designer outfit was perfect for a warm Summer day and consisted of white skinny jeans with ankle zippers, Proenza Schouler platform sandals, a colorful Brian Reyes tank, and a lust-worthy Bottega Veneta woven purse. Aviator shades and a silver pendant necklace were the perfect accessories to complete the look. Shop her exact outfit, from head to toe, now!
Fashion Week just ended, and now it's time for the real fun to start. All over the world, stylists, celebrities, and savvy peeps will be taking what they saw at the shows and translating it into real-life, wearable looks. You don't have to wait for the tastemakers to adapt these looks for you, though; in fact, you can wear many of the trendiest ones right now. I've assembled the 20 prettiest, easiest-to-create looks from the second half of Fashion Week (see the first half here) to get you runway-ready right now. Click through to get gorgeous.
New York Fashion Week is one week away and counting. Before the madness begins, we want to share which designers we're most excited to see. Proenza Schouler is always at the top of our list, but this season we're also anxious to see the next round of Jason Wu frocks. And since I missed Jenni Kayne last time, it will be fun to experience her cool-chick creations again. There's lots more where that came from — enter to find out who else we're excited to see!
Anything went at the Audi Golden Globes party in LA over the weekend. LBDs, bold numbers, corsets — all fair game. Glee's Dianna Agron wore a flirty textured frock, Krysten Ritter showed off her bright side in Brian Reyes, Dita von Teese worked Jean Paul Gaultier, Eva Amurri slipped on an orange ruffly dress, and Anna Paquin looked sleek in Gianfranco Ferré. All look exquisite, but who's most Fab?
Rachel Bilson was just in Italy to check out the scene at Milan Fashion Week, but she was back in LA yesterday continuing her stylish ways. She met up with an old friend, the designer Brian Reyes, for an appearance at Neiman Marcus, before joining her mom for lunch at La Scala. Rachel also checked out Brian's collection during his show at NYFW, and their relationship could come in handy if she gets decked out for a press tour before New York, I Love You opens on Oct. 16. She's rumored to have another role in the pipeline — she might be appearing on How I Met Your Mother as Ted's future wife!

You can even have style in the bedroom. With the (overwhelming) amount of New York Fashion Week sponsors and collaborations I witnessed last week, one was truly cool: Brian Reyes designed Proper Attire condoms. In the past, Yigal Azrouel designed them, too — these are still available for purchase. And look! Alexander Wang tried his hand at rubber design. I'm still lusting after Brian's Spring collection, but his Proper Attire condoms took a print from his '10 Resort collection. Still, clearly an original Reyes musing. The condoms are $6 for a three-pack (Fab tested, Fab approved).
