It is surely one of the most amusing stories to emerge from New York Fashion Week.

Yes, in a rush to leave a swish party, Kylie Jenner's 'people' shoved a bemused Jessica Alba aside to make room for the teenage reality TV star and her entourage.

And now the actress has commented on the matter – calling it "really shocking," and confirming that she got "body-checked," by two burly individuals. 

"I was like, 'whoa, whoa! What’s happening?'" Jessica added in conversation with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

"I thought there was like a fire. Like, I was like, 'What's going on?'

"Um, but I guess someone was just leaving the building."

One witness to the incident had previously told Page Six that at Sunday evening's jam-packed Opening Ceremony fashion show, 34-year-old Jessica had "stopped briefly to say hi to someone".

However, Ms Jenner’s bodyguards then arrived from behind Ms Alba and "shoved" her "out of the way".

There has as of yet been no comment from the Kylie Jenner camp on the matter. 


New York Fashion Week has taken its toll on New Zealand singer Lorde, who took to Instagram yesterday to show off a rather nasty beauty disaster.

The Royals hitmaker posted two selfies showing off her "screaming and weeping" right eye free of make-up, though she was still working the winged liner on her other eye.

Rather than answer the same questions over and over again for journalists at Kanye West's Yeezy show that day, Lorde chose to address the issue on Instagram instead.

"One question: what happened to your eye?" she captioned the first selfie, taken in the middle of her hair and make-up session.

And after returning to her hotel following Kanye's show, the Kiwi singer gave some further insight, saying she would rather be out and about than holed up in her bedroom.

"The skin is peeling off my lips and hands these days I very rarely see the sun," she wrote.

"My eye is weeping and screaming and it's fashion week and everyone already thinks i'm strange and it's a kanye show where the freaks are beautiful so why not say fuck it and let's dance with the melodrama?"

We like her attitude.

Eye infection or not, Lorde took pride of place in the front row at the Yeezy catwalk presentation, sitting between Kourtney Kardashian and Givenchy creative director Ricardo Tisci.

So important was Lorde's presence that poor Kendall was renegated to the second row behind all of her sisters – awks.

Even with pink eye, she's still killing it in the style stakes… total win. 


We all know the feeling; for whatever reason you've been kept awake at night, come the next morning you are met with red, tired and puffy eyes. 

You really can't hid it, even with your biggest effort using the best concealer.

Just look how tired Kendall looks here before the show!

But backstage at Vera Wang, make-up artist Lucia Pieroni reached for a rather optimistic shade of yellow shadow which she promises will give tired eyes an instant lift.

Speaking to Elle, Lucia said: "You can hardly see it, but you can [notice the difference]. Dusted all over the lids and into the inner corners, the hue makes exhausted models appear instantly wide awake."

You can add any colour you like over the top of your lids but the light from a yellow-toned shimmer shade will detract from those dreaded dark circles. 

Lucia used Clé de Peau eyeshadow, which unfortunately is not available in Ireland, but we found a great Inglot replica of the subtle shade. 

And if you want a look that is catwalk-worthy, quickly clamp your lashes with a curler and apply a slick coat of mascara.

Brush your brows up and apply a peach lipstick to your lips AND your cheeks for that fresh-from-an-eary-morning-run flush. 

Nobody will know you just rolled out of bed!


She's worked with the likes of Levi's and has appeared to great acclaim in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. 

But when Ashley Graham sashaying down the Fashion Week runway in New York – a platform which ordinarily champions very slim women – she really caused a storm.

Walking for Canadian retailer Addition Elle, the size-16 beauty was not only the star of the catwalk – she also designed the lingerie being showcased. 

Entitled Black Orchid, her collection includes black, blue and purple bras, corsets, and underwear – all of which have been specifically designed to complement the curves of fuller-figured women. 

Ashley, 28, is also a body-positive activist and during yesterday's show, guests were encouraged to use the hashtag #IAmSizeSexy to promote body diversity.

Speaking to the Huffington Post in advance, Ms Graham described the #IAmSizeSexy drive as an "amazing, all-inclusive, high-end fashion campaign".

She also said: "Everyone deserves to see themselves being represented equally."

And taking to Instagram after the show, the US model stated: “What an amazing experience!! All the girls looked amazing," adding: "Thank you to everyone who was involved behind stage as well! We rocked it! #IAmSizeSexy."

In further Instagram (a platform on which she boosts 450,000 followers) snaps today, Ashley also said that her "curves and lingerie" had slayed the runway. "Still pinching myself!!" she went on to say.

Meanwhile, the Addition Elle label stated that "history was made!"

"Curves took over the runway at #NYFW. Thank you to everyone who made this possible!

"And thank you to all the delicious curves that strutted their stuff and who showed the world what #iamsizesexy means!"



When it comes to DIY beauty, it can turn out well… or it can turn out really, really bad. 

It takes you outside your comfort zone, and as that can be very scary, it can also be where the magic happens. 

We've discovered you can use pretty much any household item to create a beauty masterpiece and many of the pros do too!

Popsugar spoke to the make-up masters at New York Fashion Week to find out the best uses for all the stuff you find in your home. 

But would you be brave enough? 


Washing-up liquid

Bok Hee, lead hair stylist at the Tracey Reese show admitted that she has washing-up liquid on hand during fashion week. "Sometimes the models' hair can be very oily when coming from another show.

"That can get tricky when the model has to have squeaky clean strands for the next runway! It cuts right through the oil."


Paint rollers

We know they're made for painting your walls, but they just as easily paint your body! Val Garland, lead make-up artist for MAC and Herve Leger, keeps them handy at show time. You can use them as a much easier and quicker way to apply tan all over your body. 


Dental floss

We know this sounds like a strange one! But Tom Pecheux is famous for using it as a make-up tool during fashion shows and photo shoots.

You can use it to line your lips or to apply liquid eye liner. Just dab your liner onto the floss, and press it up to where you want your flick to go. Hey presto, straight eye liner!


Mascara wands

Yes, they might come in handy for your mascara (obvs), but it can also be used to make really cool nail art.

Jin Soon Choi, lead nail artist at Derek Lam, uses them religiously, "I apply lacquer to the wand and stamp it on the nail," she explained. "Sometimes I'll bend the wand first to get a more irregular shape." 


Needle and thread

Sewing isn't restricted to clothing: Anthony Cole, for Sebastain Hair, explains that he often uses it if he's creating an updo. 

"If I am doing an updo, I will take all of the hair and pull it back in a rubber band. Then I use the needle and thread to make Xs through it, and pull pieces out to create shapes." 


Duct tape

Duct tape is typically used to seal up leaks and cracks around the house, but it can surprisingly be used in make-up too.

Polly Osmond, MAC make-up artist uses it on the eyes. "It’s like latex and makes really nice eyeliner," she shared.


We don't know much about how Hollywood stars, A-lister types and all-round famous faces rank each other in terms of seniority. 

But we suspect that being an in-demand actress with a stellar 20-year career (hits include Sin City, Fantastic Four and X-Men) has got to count for quite a bit.

Still, it is now being reported that Kylie Jenner's 'people' thought rather little of a certain Jessica Alba (also incidentally a multi-millionaire entrepreneur) at a recent swish New York Fashion Week event.

In fact, such was their disregard, that one of the reality TV star's bodyguards supposedly shoved Ms Alba aside to make way for the teenager.

At Sunday evening's jam-packed Opening Ceremony fashion show, which Ms Jenner attended with her rapper boyfriend Tyga, guests mingled with the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Alexa Chung, Kelly Osbourne and Rosario Dawson – as well as Ms Alba. 

Page Six reports, however, that following the event's conclusion Kylie and her entourage were keen to leave ASAP.

“After the show, trying to leave the venue, it was very crowded,” said the Page Six source.

“Everyone was in the crush and Jessica had stopped briefly to say hi to someone when all of a sudden from behind came Jenner’s bodyguards.

“They just shoved Jessica out of the way.”

However, rather than throw a diva-fit, in response 34-year-old Jess “just looked astonished!” A second source confirmed that she “didn't freak out” over the incident. 

Despite the presence of plenty of high-profile celebsKylie and Tyga had sent the waiting photographers into a frenzy when they arrived – so perhaps the moment got to them somewhat.

Regardless, a hearty pat on the back to the actress and mother-of-two for retaining her cool – we're sure that Ms Jenner has already sent her flowers and a note of apology.



'Too much fashion, not enough week.'

Poor Kendall Jenner has obviously been feeling the strain that comes with being a sought-after model during NYFW, but she's still smiling.

The 19-year-old model took to Instagram yesterday between catwalk shows to give us a glimpse of the chaos. 


so much fashion, not enough week #YouGottaDoWhatYouGottaDo

In a video shared with her 36.7m followers, Kendall sits in the front seat of her car, with her black jeans rolled up to the knee, casually shaving her legs.

Definitely a time-saver… as long as you don't drive over any speed bumps mid-shave. 

The reality-star-turned-supermodel has already walked for Givenchy and Diane Von Furstenburg so far this NYFW, the latter with her "fashion week partner in crime" Gigi Hadid.

This is Gigi's first NYFW, but we doubt she was too nervous as she's had both Kendall AND her younger sister Bella by her side for her shows so far.

The Hadid sisters wowed on the Tommy Hilfiger catwalk yesterday, even stopping for a kiss mid-strut.



They are the sisters who have dominated New York Fashion Week (Kendall, who?) – and Gigi and Bella Hadid certainly turned heads at the Tommy Hilfiger show. 

Taking to the catwalk for the US designer's grand finale yesterday, the duo donned teeny-tiny swimwear – which showed off plenty of toned bum.

Yup, we're having major bikini-bod envy.

Gigi, 20, and Bella, 18, held hands as they splashed through a dramatic water feature (all part of Hilfiger's beach-inspired set), even leaning in for a sisterly kiss at one stage.

For her final look, the elder Ms Hadid wore a striking patchwork print two-piece with beaded lattice detailing on the front (although – hello, tan-marks!).

Meanwhile, teenager Bella had on a Rasta-style multi-coloured string vest , which she wore over an equally bright and brilliant string bikini. 

Joining them on the catwalk was the likes of Stella Maxwell, Miley Cyrus's rumoured girlfriend, and Hailey Baldwin – also very part of Hollywood's latest Jenner-Hadid dominated brat pack.

And watching from the surrounding Caribbean beach huts (we're loving Hilfiger's S/S '16 vibes) was Joe Jonas, 26, the musician beau of Gigi.

Other famous faces included Victoria's Secret star Behati Prinsloo, as well as Sofia Richie, the daughter of singer Lionel and a model in her own right, and actress Suki Waterhouse.

Afterwards on Instagram, Gigi had shared a snap of the closing segment with her 6.1million followers. 

"Finale gooaalllssss," she said. "Love these girls & so honored to be a part of this show."


We made a splash! A great end to a great show. So proud of everyone. -TH #TommySpring16 #NYFW #InstaShootSS16

It's been a seriously busy NYFW for the Hadid duo: both girls had just the day before strolled down the runway at DvF's Spring '16 show

And after dominating at Tommy Hilfiger, they then hopped over to Jeremy Scott where they were on hand to debut the label's retro, Mad Men-style outfits.



Talk about a proud hubby.

David Beckham was sitting front and centre beside Anna Wintour at his wife Victoria's New York Fashion Week show, and he couldn't have looked any happier to be there. 

16-year-old Brooklyn also came along to support his mum, but for once it wasn't any of the Beckham kids that had us saying 'aaaaw.' Behold, the grown man's smile that will melt your heart:

Dressed smartly in a brown suit and white shirt, David seemed totally at home amongst the fashion elite, though he didn't forget his signature flat cap.

Taking to Instagram after the show, David seemed elated by his wife's success, writing "Amazing show" alongside a loveheart emoji and a picture of the models' final strut down the catwalk.


Amazing show @victoriabeckham

Brooklyn also posted on social media earlier in the day, sharing a picture of the empty Meat Packing District venue with the caption, "Good luck mum."

The new collection features a bold jewel-toned palette with lots of vibrant prints – a first for Victoria, who said she was "excited" to introduce more colour and texture.

The 41-year-old's show also introduced the 'half moon bag,' a gorgeous oversized leather tote which we predict will be next season's most coveted arm candy.

Speaking about the new collection – and her brand ethos – after the show, Victoria said she hoped it would have a wide appeal.

"It’s a collection for all shapes and sizes — I always say it, but I just want women to feel like the best versions of themselves."



Uh-oh, this doesn't look too good…

It was probably one of the most star-studded fashion shows of the week but model Candice Swanepoel took quite a tumble during her walk for Givenchy.

Dressed in a black, semi-sheer midi dress and stiletto red and black fringed ankle boots, the 26-year-old South African Victoria's Secret Angel, who appears in Givenchy's new autumn campaigns, tripped and almost fell flat on her face. 

Security men helped her up and she continued walking the catwalk while trying to adjust her outfit.

Candice later took to Instagram to thank the people who helped her. She also showed us a gross picture of the cuts and bruises she endured because of the fall.

"Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight," she wrote. "Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego. #ohwell."



As Carrie Bradshaw put it, "every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week."

And Carrie couldn't be more right.

Men and women alike flock to the city to see the fashion shows, the new trends and of course, the style disasters.

And while it may be the biggest event of the year for most people, it's just another day for celebrities.

Givenchy held a major fashion show and invited the most stylish celebs of Hollywood.  

We look at the stars that sat #FROW at Givenchy for New York Fashion Week (and envy them while we're at it):

Kim and Kanye West


Julia Roberts




Courtney Love


Amanda Seyfried


Steven and Liv Tyler


Debbie Harry


Nicki Minaj




We've waited a long time for this!

Lauren Conrad showed off her brand new fashion collection, LC Lauren Conrad, at New York Fashion Week yesterday. 

And it was pretty much everything we could have wished for and more!

Just think soft and fluffy fabrics, pastel lace and Grecian princess vibes. 

For all The Hills fans, we believe that this was where LC was leading to throughout the show (but then all the super annoying Speidi dramz happened which ruined it all for Lauren). 

A few famous friends including Ashley Tisdale and Chrissy Teigen also gathered with the former reality star to wish her luck on the big day. 

We're delighted that Lauren is finally where she wants to be after all these years but we can't decide what outfit is our favourite!

Can we just have them all?!
