Just before New York Fashion Week, Pantone released its forecast for Fall 2014, citing “Radiant Orchid,” “Mauve Mist” and “Aurora Red” as some of the top hits. Well, yup. From ball gowns to the avant-garde, designers have kept their hues in check this season, using a pretty strikingly clear palette from which to create. Here are some of the standouts, Pantone-approved or otherwise:

Green glitter at Altuzarra, helmet hair at Alexander Wang: 9 beauty statements from the Fall 2014 shows
The eyes, hair and nails have been making most of the beauty statements so far on the Fall 2014 runways at New York Fashion Week. Here are our favourite looks and the top beauty trends so far:
Russet lipstick as eyeshadow at Helmut Lang
Helmut Lang’s textured, masculine collection was complemented with a simple, pared down face punctuated by a soft wash of lustrous burgundy on the eye. “It’s very minimal and clean but with a hint of punk,” said lead artist Hannah Murray, who painted Nars lipstick in “Deborah Audacious” (coming this fall) onto the eye and pressed “Heat” bronzing powder over it to set. She skipped eyeliner, mascara and brow colour, and kept the under-eye area clean to avoid a “pink-eye” effect. Read more »
I just licked chocolate off the wall… isn’t that just the best ever fashion metaphor? Here at New York fashion week, there’s a show every hour on the hour. Sometimes on the half hour. It’s a perpetual carousel of Fall 2014 treats, treats we’re mean to synthesize, analyze and tell stories about. So hey, here’s your first batch of the 5 trends and cool stuff you need to know about from New York Fashion Week Fall 2014—including the chocolate bit.
Rihanna, otherwise known as the baddest b*tch on Instagram, is embracing a softer side for 2014. She’s been stepping out in more than a few mega classy spring looks as of late and while we’ll never not crave a little stripper steez, her softer side equally intrigues us. After all, any good fashion plate must shed her layers once in a while.
This weekend, Rihanna attended Roc Nation’s pre-Grammy party in the opening look from Altuzarra’s latest lady-for-everyday collection. The Spring 2014 outfit featured a silk striped button down blouse that was worn tucked into a three-quarter-length fold-over stripe skirt and paired with white Manolo Blahnik heels as well as an assortment of bling by Neil Lane, Roseark and Jennifer Meyer. Okay, so the top was unbuttoned down to her naval and the skirt was slit to her lady bits. It’s still quite a departure from this this and this (and this).

Altuzarra in Toronto! Our exclusive interview with the It designer while in town for Lunch with Margaret and George
This past Monday, international It boy Joseph Altuzarra hit Toronto for a presentation of his gilded Spring 2014 collection. The term “It boy” might sound a little diminutive when it comes to Altuzarra’s talents, but suffice to say, he’s got the “it.” In just 5 years, the Parisian born and New York based designer has gone from one to watch to mainstay, with a recent investment by Kering (formerly PPR), one of fashion’s largest holding companies. In town for Lunch With Margaret and George, an annual charity fashion put on by Yorkville boutique George C show benefitting The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, Altuzarra sat down with us exclusively for a pre-show interview in the spiny Galleria Italia of the Art Gallery of Ontario. After discussing recent Vuitton news (“great for them!”) and how he spent his weekend in the city (visiting the Royal Winter Fair, omg) We got to chatting about the past, present and future for Altuzarra.
