YOU MUST CHOOSE: The NY Fashion Week Edition

Published in: Just For Fun

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicks off today in New York with appearances by Perry Ellis, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Rubin Singer, Yigal Azrouel Women and more. To trumpet their arrival, let’s work that catwalk, b*tches! YOU MUST CHOOSE!



1. It seems like everyone’s throwing post-runway parties after the shows. After saying “YES!” one too many times, you realize you double booked. Will it be tanning at Michael Kors’ condo, OR will you go out for cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
YOU MUST CHOOSE!

2. Seconds before the start of the show, you’re asked to fill in for an ailing runway model (yah, I’m only 5’1″, but a girl can dream). If given the choice of designers to walk for, which one would it be?
YOU MUST CHOOSE!

3. You’re a model and given impossibly high stilettos for one of the runway shows. You’re almost guaranteed to fall on your ass. Would you rather slip, launching into the first row like a human cannon ball, coming to rest face first in C. Bale’s lap (hot damn!), OR would you rather slip, quickly regain your walking composure, but have one of your boobs pop out of your dress in front of thousands of cameras and national TV? Oh, yeah, and your parents are in the audience. :)
YOU MUST CHOOSE!

4. Under orders from your employer, you must attend a bunch of high fashion after-parties wearing one of two outfits:

  1. an oversized sweatshirt that says “Disneyland, 2004!”, your rattiest pair of stretchy pants and some Mickey Mouse ears, OR…
  2. the uniform worn by restaurant employees of Hot Dog on a Stick (including the hat).

YOU MUST CHOOSE!

5. Whom would you rather talk fashion sense with over coffee and donuts — Diane von Furstenberg (yup, I watched Project Runway the other night) OR Karl Lagerfeld?
YOU MUST CHOOSE!

Extra question for Project Runway Fans!

6. Which Project Runway contestants will make it to Bryant Park this season?
YOU MUST CHOOSE!

The Questions

1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?

2. Which designer to walk for?

3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?

4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?

5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?

6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park?

This morning I’m driving into SF (they just raised the Golden Gate Bridge toll to $6, yo!) to meet someone for a freelance project, but I’ll try to make time for a pit stop at Sephora. :)

What are you up to today? Do you have plans for the weekend?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  4. Glosslizard says:

    Oh, I’m so fashion impaired!

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    Well, cocktails over tanning, so MJ.

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Chanel, or maybe Betsy Johnson. One is iconic, the other is fun!

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    Oh do you even need to ask? Excuse me, Mr. Bale!

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    Disney, I know I could work those ears, and the stripes just don’t cut it for me!

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    Karl!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park?
    No clue!

  5. meimei says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    As much as I love Michael Kors, I hate tanning. Cocktails with MJ would be fun, though.

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Dolce & Gabbana! Or, failing that, Tracy Reese.

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    Christian Bale, obviously.

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    The Hot Dog on a Stick uniform.

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    DVF – she’s had a fabulous life, and sounds like a great gal. Besides, I’ve been reading Manolo the Shoeblogger from the very beginning, so I would know better than to hang out with Mr. Pure Evil.

  6. Elena says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    Michael Kors sounds more interesting, but I’d take cocktails over damaging my pretty skin any day.

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Couldn’t I just walk for Marc, seeing as we’ve already shared and bonded over cocktails?

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    You know, strange as it sounds in writing, the exposed boob ultimately sounds less embarrassing. On a side note, I would probably use the Christian Bale situation in favor of scoring an autograph (you know, “Well, while we’re both here…”) :)

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    I would rock the uniform and tell everyone Marc Jacobs designed it for me. I anticipate being laughed out of whatever party I’m at for that, though.

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    Diane!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park?
    You know, I stopped watching two or three weeks ago because I was bored of them. Did they vote the overtly tan one out yet? (Also, to answer the above, I have no idea at all…).

    Hope you’re feeling better, Karen! :)

  7. Julia says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs? Michael Kors! (PR Fan! And he seems so fun and nice!)

    2. Which designer to walk for? Tory Burch! I desparately want to own something designed by her. Why does it all have to cost so much?

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob? CBale!?! That was easy!!

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform? The uniform!

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl? Diane! Also seems so nice and down to earth!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park? KORTO! She rocks!

  8. Louise Gray says:

    Feeling better yet?

    The Questions
    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    Since I like my porcelain fair skin, I will be glad to share a little alcohol with Mr.Jacobs.

    2. Which designer to walk for? Chanel

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob? He is too young but that is better than having one of the girls come out in public.

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform? Hey-I will take the Hot Dog on the Stick uniform and love it!

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl? Champagne and donuts with Karl. HE IS MY MAN!!!!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park? I do not watch the show and do not know where Bryant Park is. Here we have Highland Park and the Parkway East and Parkway West, but no Bryant Park.
    As far as paying $6 to go over the Bridge-that’s a shame. When we were little girls, they used to have public pay toilets. You would have to put in a dime in order for the door to open. My mom and aunt were frugal (read cheap) and would make us young ‘uns crawl under the stall to open the door from the inside so that they could go for free. You need to find someone to let you go over the Bridge for free. Have a great weekend.

  9. Karen B says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs? Coctails with Mark ^^

    2. Which designer to walk for? I think Chloé (they probably don’t show at NY but I don’t care. lol)

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob? Mr Bale’s lap of course ;) Rauw

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform? Disney all the way

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl? Diane. She’s born in Belgium, did you know? And at least she won’t be making comments about how he only designs for thin models. Tss. He is a genius but I prefer Diane. Sorry Karl.

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park? No idea

    Karen Bs last blog post..Oh my effing Iker

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Versace

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    Exposed boob..they are so small and to be honest everyone has seen them before due to lack of dress suportage anyway! Plus i modelled underwear for a photo shoot once so every one is familiar with my nipples

  13. Kristina says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    Definitely cocktails with Marc Jacobs… tanning is so bad for your skin.

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    It is really difficult to choose only one! I guess I would start with Versace…

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    I will take the lap anyday over the boob – I know we all have them and we all know what they look like but I would be mortified.

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    Uniform – I couldn’t bring myself to wear tattered clothes.

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    Diane!

  14. Allison Kathryn says:

    Love these!! Great Q’s. :)

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs? Cocktails with Marc Jacobs. While Michael Kors is my favorite ProRun judge, I burn rather than tan!

    2. Which designer to walk for? Any designer in the world? Alexander McQueen. Designers showing at NY Fashion Week? Betsey Johnson, for sure. She always has a fun, wild show!

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob? C. Bale’s lap. Hopefully, he and Mrs. Bale will laugh it off!

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform? Disney! And I will rock the heck out of those Mickey ears, too.

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl? I do love Diane – such a chic, classy woman – but Karl is a one-of-a-kind. You know it won’t be your run of the mill coffee and donuts with Karl!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park? I haven’t been watching, can you believe it? My Wednesdays are unusually busy this season! :(

  15. Marisol says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs? Definitely cocktails with MJ. Maybe I can convince him with my charm and get a quilted stam bag.

    2. Which designer to walk for? Chanel for the prestige or Betsy Johnson for the fun apparel.

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob? Bale baby Bale!

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform? M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl? Karl fo sho!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park? I want Christian back. I am soooo bored with this season I am not even watching.

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    Cocktails with Marc Jacobs.

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Either Balenciaga or Alexander McQueen.

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    Exposed boob… if I had boobs, lol.

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    Disney! It’d be fun and I could chic it up.

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    KARL!

  17. Miss QQ says:

    Hi Karen. This is fun.

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs? Marc Jacobs!! Love his work! I don’t like Kors.
    2. Which designer to walk for? Elie Saab! His dresses are to-die-for!
    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob? Lap please. I cannot imagine the latter. I will go bersak.
    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform? Hot Dog, because it looks silly and fun. The colours are nice.
    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl? This is the most tricky question. I love Diane’s work but Karl seems like a character to meet. I think I will go with Karl, just to meet him in person.

  18. Mariah says:

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?

    Sorry Mikey, I’m going with Marc! He seems young and fun. Plus, I’m assuming the drinks are free!

    2. Which designer to walk for?

    Well you answered it for us!! Zac Posen! If not them, then probably someone like Sass & Bide or Rag & Bone. Or Dior COUTURE!! Those dresses are amazing!

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?

    Is this even a question?? BALE BABY!

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?

    I LOVE Disney with all my heart, but I think I could rock the HDoaS outfit a little harder. I mean, besides the hat, didn’t they used to wear striped, form fitting shift dresses?

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?

    Diane! Uncle Karl scares the bejeezus out of me!

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park?

    I haven’t watched yet!! *hides in shame*

    OMM, this is like the absolutely zenith of fabulous dilemmas!

    1. Tanning with Michael Kors or cocktails with Marc Jacobs?
    I like Marc tons more than Kors as a designer, but I honestly think that I wouldn’t fit in too well with the artsy-boho-chich crowd over at Marc’s, whereas my chances of scoring free swag are higher at Michael Kors’ party!

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Carolina Herrera! I want to rock her stylish cocktail dresses!

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?
    MISTER BALE’S LAP. NO DILEMMA THERE!

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    Lol, Hot Dog on a Stick! You can always tell people that the restaurant is sponsoring…something…

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    Meeting Karl would just be fab-fab-fab, but I thik that: 1) His acerbic wit would cut me down to pieces; 2)He’d talk about anything BUT fashion; and 3)He would randomnly speak German to annoy me! Lol.

    So I’ll say DVF this time. Plus I always wanted to hang out with a princess!

    Regardless, definitely cocktails.

    2. Which designer to walk for?
    Donna Karan Collection

    3. C. Bale’s lap or exposed boob?

    4. Disney sweatshirt or Hot Dog on a Stick uniform?
    HotDog on a Stick, no ratty pants.

    5. Coffee and donuts with Diane or Karl?
    I don’t think Karl eats donuts. I’ll have a glass of champagne with him though.

    6. Which Project Runway finalists make it to Bryant Park?
    Haven’t got the foggiest, have never seen the show.
