10 Dumb Outfits #NYFW Street Stylers Wore in the Freezing Cold

Photo: Julien Boudet/BFAnyc.com

New York during Fashion Week in February is exciting, glamorous, and…freezing. With arctic blast after arctic blast hitting the island like a wrecking ball, it’s hard to remember a time when a Moncler puffer was not needed. For these fashion loving street walkers, weather seems to not be an issue. If you’re truly dedicated to the art of wearing fashion, the elements of the world just seem to disappear! Impractical things miraculously become practical and freezing temperatures magically heat up. All jokes aside, we just hope that all of these #NYFW attendees don’t spend too much time posing for photos and get themselves inside by a fireplace stat. (Watch the faux furs, they are highly flammable.)

Tom Brady Wouldn’t Be Caught Dead in a Red Chevy Truck

The Super Bowl may be over but we’re certainly not through with talking about Tom Brady. After winning four Super Bowls for the Patriots and gaining the title Super Bowl MVP three times, it is easy to dub Brady not just an athlete but an American super hero. He’s got the super model wife Gisele Bundchen, a collection of Super Bowl rings, and three loving children, so the last thing he apparently needs is a new truck. A 2015 Chevrolet Colorado to be exact.

16x9The truck: pictured above is a similar truck to the one given to Brady. The truck appeared in one of Chevy’s incredibly sexist Super Bowl commercials. An ad that can coast upwards of $4 million. Photo: Youtube/Chevrolet. 

When you’re named MVP, it seems free pick up trucks just fall into your hands! In fact, Chevy gifted one to Brady for his MVP status. Brady is of course too busy with the Audis and the Bentleys of the world to consider adding the gas guzzling truck to his and Gisele’s motorized roster. He’s giving it away.

The solution? Pass that truck along to Patriot’s player Malcolm Butler. Butler is the undrafted rookie who put his name on the map when he made the most buzzed about interception of the night at the first yard line helping with the New England Patriot’s victory. During a radio interview on Tuesday Brady insisted he’d love to slip the truck to Malcolm, stating his play during Sunday night’s game was nothing short of “incredible.”

Karl Schedules a Show for the Same Date as the Met Ball… So, Would You Rather: Chanel or Vogue?

Photo: Julian Mackler/BFAnyc.com

It’s a fashionista’s scheduling nightmare, and the morbid dream is coming to reality quicker than the stitching of a Chanel tweed suit. What happens when the matriarch and patriarch of the fashion industry, Anna Wintour of American Vogue and Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel throw events on the same day in different countries? We will soon find out, because apparently May 4th is fashion’s hottest date.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 Anna Wintour Costume Center Exhibition Gala has been the hottest ticket in New York since Wintour first organized it back in 1995. But that ticket could soon lose its shine as Chanel’s always elaborate cruise show is being held in Seoul, the exact same day.

Where will the editors go? What will the top models do? Will Rihanna be sitting front row in Korea or tripping in Tom Ford up the steps of the Met? Which one would you rather attend? The $25,000 a plate Met Gala or front row at one of the years hottest shows? Anna, if Kendall or Cara are too busy walking in the Chanel show I am always available to be a seat filler.

5 Words to Ruin a Date: Love Lessons from Twitter

(#PrincessSophia) How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Paramount Pictures

Dating can be hard. Dating in New York City can be even harder. Due to obsessive societal fixation on (conscious) coupling and uncoupling you may find your single self at a loss. But have no fear because social media always pulls through! Save your money and go without that millionaire matchmaker! Simply search #FiveWordsToRuinADate on Twitter and absorb the wisdom of the general public. Not exactly the advice you’d get from Steve Wilkos, but it will do. Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.46.26 PM1. This one goes without saying. Word to the wise, when picking the location for a date, opt for something soothing to the stomach on a date to ensure that these five little words never need to be said. Are you a fan of Indian food? Too bad.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.51.32 PM2. It’s always important to not look like a loser when first dating. We all love our moms, but let’s leave them out of the situation when it comes to transportation.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.47.34 PM3. Not five words, but ok. You may have stalked your date on Instagram before meeting IRL. In our modern, techy world, social media plays a huge part in the dating scene. A filter can go a long way, and if the person you’re sitting across from looks a little less Valencia than you thought, keep your mouth shut.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.56.15 PM4. Never talk about past romances on a date, especially if those relationships are borderline incestuous. Lke Karen from Mean Girls, you may have frenched your cousin, but whatever you do, keep it to yourself.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.44.29 PM5. It is very important not to comment on your date’s eating habits. Just because you don’t like mayo does not mean they don’t! The person you’re going on a date with is not expecting to go on a date with a nutritionist (even if you are one, ain’t nobody got time for that).


This Is How You Can Look Like the Eternally Un-Aging Jennifer Lopez

 Photo: Matteo Prandoni/BFAnyc.com

Jennifer Lopez has a lot of things on her to-do list, and apparently, aging is not one of them. The superstar showed up to this year’s Golden Globes boasting her fabulous globes for the globe to see — and nobody was complaining. At 45-years-old, Jenny has come a long way from the block, but she definitely isn’t showing it. With no wrinkle in sight, one may wonder how after 45 years of living on this earth with its pollution JLO has only chiseled abs and luscious locks to show for it.

Let’s face it, to look like Jennifer Lopez you’re going to have to workout like Jennifer Lopez. Her trainer of choice is of course Tracy Anderson. The star is said to constantly work out with cardio including biking, running, boxing and the stair master. Never skipping a beat, JLO does not go two days without breaking a sweat. Simple enough, right?

No. You must also have a strict diet if you want to have that radiant glow that Jen has. This diet includes absolutely no sugar or salt. Also you’ve gotta give up your alcohol and those pesky cigarettes.

VANITY FAIR OSCAR PARTY 2012 - Red Carpet ArrivalsNever one to shy away from showing her perfectly glistened skin, Jennifer ops for sleeves but still shows the cleav’. Photo: Billy Farrell/BFAnyc.com

When it comes to her skin. the star told Allure that “I get my cleanser from my dermatologist. I need a great cleanser because I’ve had to wear a lot of makeup for so many years. I use a very mild makeup remover and a very basic sunscreen-moisturizer combo, and I try to get lots of sleep.”

You can easily try all of the above steps and in 20 years see where it gets you. But, let’s face it, with all her millions in the bank Jennifer surely secretly scurries to the world’s best doctors for some laser-encouraged tightening and lifting, scalpel or not.

Move Over Julia, Emma Roberts Might Have Your Smile Beat

Photo: Billy Farrell/BFAnyc.com

Julia Roberts‘ smile is basically an institution. Sure she’s known for her acting and Oscar wins, but let’s face it, without that signature million dollar grin she’d just be another Hathaway. Can you believe Emma Roberts’ luck, to be swimming in the same gene pool? News flash: You don’t even have to be Julia’s daughter to steal the wide set kisser. Emma Roberts was born into a Hollywood family and the chick’s taking full advantage of it. She’s stolen her aunt’s smile and making an attempt to steal her career! See below the 10 times Emma #SmileSnatched Julia.

Fashion, Supermodels, Celebs, and Collectors Love Jeff Koons

Photo: David X Prutting/BFAnyc.com

He’s made a name for himself becoming one of the most successful living American artist, selling his shiny works for millions of dollars, and is a discussion for bitter art students and fashion lovers alike. Jeff Koons has had collaboration with H&M — something that is regularly reserved for fashion houses like Alexander Wang or superstars like David Beckham. Jeff sealed the deal when he caught the attention of Lady Gaga’s lil’ monsters after designing her album cover for ArtPop.

The artist’s name is becoming omnipresent in pop culture, so it only makes sense that Koons is nearly a celeb himself. See below to further explore the phenomenon.

Alexa Chung is the It-est It Girl

Photo: Joe Schildhorn/BFAnyc.com

Being an It Girl takes a lot of work. There’s traveling, partying, wearing gifted clothing, and mass attempts on being downright fabulous. It would be hard being Alexa Chung, said no one, nowhere. The British beauty air kisses Karl Lagerfeld’s cheeks regularly and sits front row at nearly every major fashion show.

She’s a chain-smoker and author of a book simply titled “It”. I think that needs no explaining as to why. Alexa is trotting behind personal favorite Chloe Sevigny on becoming the end all be all It Girl. See why, below.

The temperatures may be dropping in New York City but the party circuit is still hot. Valentino showed couture stateside and it brought about a bundle of stylish avid Valentino wearers. Stephanie Seymour proves she’s the definition of elegance and Carey Mulligan has a major red moment in Switzerland. Who gets your vote for best dressed?
