You Can Be The Lucky One To Help Fund Whitney’s Fashion Week Show


Former City starlet, Whitney Port, is in a position where she has to ask her fans for something she would probably rather not.

Fashion week is a serious turning point for all designers and of course she would like  to be apart of it.  But,Whitney apparently doesn’t have the money to fund it.  So, she has reached out and asked her fans to donate $50,000 to her to allow her designs to be showcased this fall for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

We all know her fashion designs are unique and expensive, so why is she asking for the average joe’s money who probably won’t ever be able to afford it? Doesn’t she have enough money? This could be risky for Whitney’s career if fans react negatively to her solicitation.

Whitney must have thought about the potential backlash.  If you do have money to donate to a complete stranger who lives a rather privileged and lavish life, Whitney is giving treats in return. We don’t understand the logic in asking people for money and giving big gifts in return, but thank you Whit!  Most of the gifts have to do with Whitney Eve items, so we suppose Whitney’s not losing a lot of money on the giveaways.  She wants to give a behind-the-scenes look into the fashion world to the donators. Here is some fun stuff you will receive in return of a donation:

Donate $1: Receive a shout-out on her Facebook page.

Donate $5: Receive a personal tweet on her Twitter page.

Donate $30: Receive a $50 credit to WhitneyEve.com as well as a personal tweet on her Twitter Page.

Donate $50: Receive a Whitney Eve Spring ’13 look chosen by Whitney or two surprise pieces from past collections valued at $350.

Donate $85: Receive four surprise pieces of Whitney Eve from past collections valued at $700.

Donate $250: Receive a trip to Whitney Eve’s NYC headquarters during the days leading up to the fashion week you helped her get to.

Donate $300: Receive a sneak-peek to the Whitney Eve Spring ’13 collection by attending the NYC fitting.

Donate $450(ONLY 5 spots): Receive a front-row seat to view the Whitney Eve collection.

We would love to see Whitney on the runway, so even if we disagree with her method, we hope she makes it there!

Whitney Reveals All Down Under


Anthony Johnson/Sydney Morning Herald

Whitney Port presented her collections, Whitney Eve and WE by Whitney Eve, at Fashion Week in Australia on Tuesday, May 1. She found time in her busy schedule to sit down with the Sydney Morning Herald to talk about life post theCity.

NW: Do you miss your reality TV days?

WP: No, but it was bitter-sweet. I wanted to show more of what was happening with my clothing line because it only showed the launch of it and we weren’t really able to show it evolve. But then not having to wake up and be concerned [about] how you look, or put a filter on what you say, is refreshing. All of a sudden I was going to work with a purpose and not having to worry about this whole team of people expecting drama out of me.

Would you do another reality show?

I don’t think so, but I would do some sort of style, fashion-based show. I just finished filming Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model as a judge but I wouldn’t do anything as intimate as I did before. I actually had a real relationship on [The City], which is something that I never thought I’d be OK with, but … if I was going to do that show, I may as well have a partner in crime.

I noticed your ex, Jay, was at your Fashion Week show. Any chance of you getting back together?

No, I hadn’t seen him for like a year and it’s really nice to see him, because I’ve never ended in bad terms with any ex-boyfriend.

Do you have a boyfriend now?

Yes, I’ve been with him for eight months now but he is not in the limelight. No one would know who he is, which is really nice.

Any wedding plans?

Not that I know of. He lives in New York … but he’s moving out to LA to be with me in September, so we will see how it goes, but I’m not the type of girl who will sit there waiting for the ring. I’m patient.

Do you still keep in contact with Olivia Palermo?

Mmmm, no. I honestly haven’t talked to Olivia since the day we stopped filming. Olivia and I were never really close friends, so there wouldn’t really be a reason for us to stay in touch.

Read the full interview with Whitney here.

Olivia Palermo’s Back in the New York Groove



Olivia Palermo is back home in New York City following a stylish European road trip aka. Fashion Week. Olivia was spotted roaming the streets of the concrete jungle on Monday, March 12.

Kristin Showed Up For Fashion Week Too



In time for Valentine’s Day, Kristin Cavallari made her way to New York City for Fashion Week.

Kristin visited Barbie’s Dream Closet in the David Rubinstein Atrium in Manhattan, wearing black and white tunique paired with tights and heals. She admits she would probably do more shows if she wasn’t pregnant, because of the tiredness. The former Hills star revealed to AssociatedPress in an interview that she every year goes to the Betsey Johnson show, because “it’s the most fun one”. Rachel Roy and Dennis Basso were two other designer runways Kristin went to.

The mom-to-be says her boho-chic maternity style is something she’s excited to try out. “Nicole Richie did a great job with the whole boho theme,” says Kristin, “The long dresses and the long skirts are just so comfortable. And I’ll be huge when it’s really hot out, so I’ll probably go in that genre. You know, I’m not so big yet that I can’t wear my normal clothes still. Probably in the next month or two, I’m gonna get really big, though.”

Olivia Wouldn’t Miss Fashion Week


You knew this was coming!

Seated in the front row, Olivia was flawless wearing a black vest, standout printed pants and a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels that she teamed with a bright yellow statement clutch. Olivia has a way of putting different pieces together to make it an eye-catching outfit. Olivia ticks all the right boxes.

Black and Red


Well, fashion week is finally here, again.  And, like every week of fashion, the socialites are flocking to New York like moths to a flame.

On Friday, February 10, in New York City, Stephanie Pratt attended the Ivana Helsinki fall 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Stephanie beamed as photographers snapped her in her black embroidered jumper, teamed with black leggings and ankle boots. This outfit flattered her slender figure and everyone knows a girl can do no wrong wearing all black and red lips.

Stephanie was spotted inside the event chatting with Kim Kardashian’s bestie, Simon Huck.

Whitney Eve Is Going to Fashion Week


The former theCity star, Whitney Port, is finally getting her own big spotlight. She will debut her line, Whitney Eve Fall 2012 collection in her first runway show at Lincoln Center for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, coming up this February.

The news hit portals once Whitney announced her exciting news on Twitter and her blog, where she shared the excitement about the upcoming runway show. “I cannot wait to unveil everything that I have been pouring my heart and soul into for the last 6 months. It is such an honor to be showing my line with the same people that I look up to for so much inspiration and motivation,” she wrote.

On MTV’s theHills we watched Whitney working at Teen Vogue, and later in the show’s spin-off, theCity we followed her through the fashion business. The reality starlet worked at various fashion companies such as Diane von Furstenberg and People’s Revolution in 2008, which is also when she launched her line.

“My collection has grown so much over the past few years, and the next step for me as a designer was to put on my own runway show,” Whitney said in a press release to FashionEtc. “I am so excited to show on schedule as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, and can’t wait to show my new Fall collection on the runway.”

The Whitney Eve collection hits the stage on February 15th at 9 a.m.

Scarlett Is One Celebrity You Won’t See At The Opening Of An Envelope



Dolce & Gabbana have long designed for a very feminine shape, and Scarlett Johansson fits that silhouette perfectly.

Scarlett was in Milan for Fashion Week, and attended the Dolce & Gabbana show and party on Sunday, September 25.

She wore a black, 1950’s-inspired dress, designed by her hosts.  Scarlett accessorized with a pair of black lace pumps with pointy toes, amber drop earrings and a black patent leather clutch.

Although not generally known for attending many Fashion Week shows or parties, Scarlett often wears Dolce & Gabbana to events or awards shows.  As a Hollywood A-Lister, she also keeps her status by not being seen at the opening of an envelope, making her Milan appearance extra special for the designers.

Fashion Fauxfile- Audrina Patridge



During Fashion Week in New York City Audrina Patridge made an appearance at the Badgley Mischka show on Monday, September 13. She wore a simple but stunning black strapless dress paired with a statement necklace and a pair of gladiator wedges. This look is perfect for any event and a little black dress is a classic piece that every wardrobe needs.

To recreate Audrina’s look we picked out a black strapless dress from revolveclothing.com ($45) and picked out two pairs of shoes you could choose from depending on the occasion, one is a black closed toe wedge with stitching details made by Jeffrey Campbell ($220) and the other is a simple black gladiator sandal from heels.com ($74). We picked out a black studded clutch with a chain strap from bluefly.com ($59) and to finish off the outfit a gold necklace from modcloth.com ($59).
