For Fall 2011, Derek Lam paired up with eBay to create a line of 16 easy-to-wear dresses which he presented at Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week earlier this year. After the presentation, consumers were invited to vote for their favorite pieces, and now the five most popular styles — the black poplin evening dress and shift, the floral print dress in maxi and midi silhouettes, and the indigo denim sun dress — are being sold on eBay.com in the wallet-friendly price range of $125-$295. We’d opt for the black sheath dress — who doesn’t need another LBD? Be sure to check out the whole collection to shop your favorite style!
If recent runway looks are any indication, blue shadow will be one of the hottest makeup shades around come Fall. From bright (as in the electric blue eye makeup at Steffie Christiaens's Paris Fashion Week show pictured here) to the futuristic, here are five additional ways designers featured the look during recent 2011 Fall Fashion Weeks around the globe.
The dressy hood was a recurring theme during New York Fashion Week. Ralph Lauren did a luxuriously beaded hood with eveningwear, Halston added a hood to a slinky '70s dress, Suno put a sporty silk version on its models, and Mara Hoffman put a hood on a slinky, sexy, backless jersey dress. What's your opinion on this hooded movement? Is it cool, or should it stay on the runway?
Backstage at L.A.M.B.'s 2011 Fall runway show, Gwen Stefani reveals her 6-part show structure, offers her own definition of "fashion", and sounds a call to arms for all tweeters! To see this—and get a glimpse of all the lovely models prepping backstage—watch the interview coverage now!
Marc by Marc Jacobs's Fall 2011 collection continued in the vein of that '70s style by turning out models in wide-leg trousers, velvet pantsuits, and disco-worthy dresses all in an orange, brown, and jade green palette. Highlights included a fur-trimmed trench, a gold lamé skirt, and, of course, must-have handbags galore. To see all the cool-kid ensembles, watch our complete coverage now!
Marked by bold colors, covetable outerwear, and eye-catching patterns like oversize tartan and stripes, Rag & Bone's Fall 2011 collection was truly a sight to behold. The front row was packed with It girls like Erin Wasson, Jessica Stam, and Alexa Chung, and the runway was ripe with directional ensembles topped off by messy side-braids. To see all the dynamic looks, watch our complete coverage now!

Designers like Thakoon, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, and Cushnie et Ochs all showed covetable pieces and we can't wait to get our hands on them. However, their delectable pieces are months (and months) away from hitting stores. Bummer. Might we suggest you satiate your shopping urge with our tempting peplum picks available right now? Ready, set, shop!
