    Inside Fashion Week

    Friday, September 14th, 2012

    Me? At Fashion Week? I’m the guy who gets the Lands’ End catalog and thinks, “Too edgy.” Nevertheless, like a lamb on a freeway I was ordered to step forth. My column on the runway shows is up.

    Fat Models Don’t Help with the Self-Esteem Thing

    Monday, March 22nd, 2010

    Apparently plus-sized, “real” or fat models don’t actually make overweight women feel better about themselves. Via Instapundit we learn that looking at fat people doesn’t make you feel celebrated, empowered and appreciated. It just kinda makes you feel…fat.

    Roly-Poly Role Models

    Sunday, January 10th, 2010

    Plus-sized models: Should we cheer them — or are they just encouraging more American fatties to have another piece of pie? More in my Sunday column.

    Review: “Coco Before Chanel”

    Friday, September 25th, 2009

    Audrey Tautou turns in a grumpy performance in the cold and leaden biopic, “Coco Before Chanel.” My review is up. Warning: I made a pun in French. I couldn’t resist.

    Why Steve McQueen Was Cool

    Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

    The Journal has a story on the fashion world’s current obsession with Steve McQueen, who died in 1980 but whose style is being channeled by designers at Dolce & Gabbana, Thom Browne, J. Crew, Tag Heuer and Persol. With some bewilderment, the writer asks, Why?
    his look is so restrained—and incorporates so many of today’s [...]

    Review: “The September Issue”

    Thursday, August 27th, 2009

    Vogue editrix Anna Wintour evidently consented to have a documentary filmed around her to counteract the frightening image of her in “The Devil Wears Prada.” R.J. Cutler’s doc “The September Issue” opens this weekend. My review is up.

    A Wintour’s Tale

    Monday, August 17th, 2009

    My Post colleague Serena French slices up “The September Issue,” the upcoming documentary about Vogue and its freaky-scary editrix Anna Wintour. Wintour apparently comes off looking pretty much like a heartless crone in the movie, I’ve heard. But that’s the magic of doc cinema: Convince somebody that you’re going to make them a big-screen star, [...]

    Stop the Maxi Dress!

    Sunday, July 26th, 2009

    In my Sunday column I ask: What is the deal with those floor length “maxi dresses” New York women are wearing this summer? Where did this urban burqa come from?

    Get Ready for the Crayola Men!

    Thursday, February 5th, 2009

    Department of possibly-alarming-but-probably-fictitious trends: men’s shirts for spring are going to be offered in lilac, pink, orange and cobalt. Color me skeptical: real men don’t wear lilac. These shirts are going to be piling up unsold. I and most guys I know will not be seen pimped out in orange or yellow. (Although cobalt blue [...]

    New York Salutes You, IKEA, Libertarian Wonderland

    Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

    Socialism has come to the Hudson, but enough about the New York department of city planning. IKEA Brooklyn, the first-ever sighting of the sofas-and-Swedish-meatballs retailer in Gotham, opens Wednesday morning and lingonberry fever has already struck. Fans started waiting in line Monday morning, probably equally enticed by free POANG and EKTORP and my column this [...]
