Fashion Week Observed
As much as we love Fashion Week, anyone who has ever been to the shows will tell you that it’s not an easy stroll down the tents.

Misshapes DJ Leigh Lezark and Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio probably don’t run into this problem often, but at Saturday’s Christian Siriano show they wore the same thing: burgundy platform pumps from the designer’s Payless collection.
In fact, many of the show’s front-row guests sported Siriano footwear. Actress Tori Spelling was overheard insisting Read More
