Since New York Fashion Week ended, we’ve examined every facet of the 10-day marathon from fall fashion trends to runway diversity. Now, a new study by First Insight Inc. looks at which New York-based brands resonated most with consumers.

The company surveyed 3,600 consumers about 16 designers and 294 styles to discover the top four brands. Elie Tahari emerged as the favorite brand among respondents aged 19-44. Participants over age 45 preferred Carolina Herrera

While Carolina Herrera may have been popular among respondents over 45, the collection wasn’t so well-received in our forums. “Wow, this could be her first collection that I dislike,” Koibito confessed. Liberty33r1b echoed that sentiment, saying, “I love it, but it lacks something…”

The study also found that men leaned toward Ralph Lauren as their brand of choice and Hervé Leger by Max Azria enjoyed the “largest increase in positive sentiment” with a 10% gain from last year. (more…)

Maria Borges Steals the Spotlight From Anna Ewers on This Self Service Cover (Forum Buzz)

Ever since Anna Ewers made her debut on the fashion scene, our forums have pretty much been #TeamEwers, adoring each and every one of her many Vogue covers. Therefore, we were thrilled to see the German bombshell gracing the cover of Self Service‘s Spring/Summer 2016 edition. But when the biannual magazine throws Angolan model Maria Borges into the mix, we’re suddenly left with the dilemma of choosing a favorite cover. Anna was shot looking all dolled up by Self Service regular Ezra Petronio, while Maria served up a visually stimulating black and white cover shot before the lens of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Members of our forums made it clear which cover they prefer. “Maria gives me LIFE! So effortlessly chic and such a huge presence. I really hope she gets all the attention she deserves,” championed thiago:) immediately.

“This one with Maria is amazing. What a look!” approved an equally impressed narcyza. (more…)

Kim Kardashian is all over the news for being naked on the internet again. And, as ever, her unclad body is being met with plenty of opinions.

When she posted a naked selfie on Instagram and Twitter on Monday with the caption, “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL” haters and lovers in (sort of) equal measure were quick to wade in with comments that were appreciative, disparaging and everything in between.

She shared the photo on Twitter again on International Women’s Day under the Women’s Day hashtag, which only added fuel to the fire.

Karl Lagerfeld is just as obsessed with emojis as the rest of the world. The fashion icon incorporated the computer language into his latest collection for Chanel. Emojis turned up on everything from jewelry to tote bags.

Edie Campbell Scores Her Fourth Vogue Cover of 2016 (Forum Buzz)

It’s only March and Edie Campbell already has four major Vogue covers under her belt, which certainly deserves a round of applause. Currently on Japanese Vogue‘s April offering, the Brit beauty and current face of Roberto Cavalli has just been unveiled as Vogue Germany‘s April cover girl. Once again captured by photographic duo Luigi & Iango, Edie was shot amid ornate surroundings wearing an intricate creation by Alexander McQueen for the title’s dark and moody cover.

Edie’s latest certainly wasn’t well received on our forums. “Her again! This is just mediocre just like the other ones, there isn’t any fire or excitement in her,” pointed out Nymphaea straight away.

“I don’t love this cover at all, because I feel like I wanna see Edie in a totally different way than everyone has seemed to be capturing. I want some GLAMOUR darling!!!! (LOL) But yeah, this girl is really on fire again this season,” chimed in niknak. (more…)

Breaking news: Karl Lagerfeld is working with a celebrity that’s not Kristen Stewart. The Chanel creative director is newly smitten with Willow Smith and just named the singer/actress the newest Chanel ambassadress.

This is a great honor for the 15-year-old star, who is clearly a fan of the fashion world. Not only is she a “trendsetter” as Chanel notes, she regularly attends Paris Fashion Week with her mom, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and once starred in Marc Jacobs Fall 2015 campaign. (more…)
