• Want free tickets to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week? Rowenta (yes, the iron company) is giving away invites to Cynthia Rowley, Nicole Miller, and Nanette Lepore (two so you can bring a friend). Rowenta will be at a specific location in NYC to ask a trivia question about the brand. Check their Facebook page today for full details on where, when, and at what time the giveaway will be. If you don’t live in NYC, enter Rowenta’s Facebook giveaway of their Pro-Master irons designers will be using during MBFW.
• And now, further proof that many of the hottest fashion trends (doorknocker earrings, nameplate necklaces) originate in the hood. Here’s Stella Tennant doing what couldn’t be described as anything other than planking in this month’s Vogue Italia. (Fashion Gone Rogue)
• After all those glasses of free champagne during tonight’s Fashion’s Night Out festivites, you’re going to get hungry. If you’re in New York City, hop over to celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson‘s Global Street Food Pop-Up. This pop-up street food cafe boasts delicious, affordable dishes (prices range from $5-$12!) from all around the world. My mouth is watering in anticipation. The cafe will run through Fashion Week (September 8-15) in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. Think you’ll check it out? You will see me at 6pm this evening standing with my face pressed against the window, eyes hungrily stalking Marcus Samuelsson! See you guys there! (Marcus Samuelsson)
