  • With Fashion Week comes promotions! Today and tomorrow, Uber users in New York City will be able to request their very own blowout and makeup application by a team of experts on-demand.  From 3pm – 8pm, you can use the code UBERGLAM and have the team arrive at your location for a quick make-over for $40 a pop that should take about 40 minutes.  If you have friends, make it a group thing for up to 4 people back-to-back!

  • The new Yahoo Style “digital magazine” has launched just in time for Fashion Week, with Jessica Biel as its first “cover star.” Amongst other things, editor-in-chief Joe Zee has said that he will not chase news like many sites do, though there may be timely postings, and the site will also churn out editorials, interviews and even “six hours of live video commentary and interviews” from New York Fashion Week. Tall order! (Yahoo Style)
