Hey! It’s NY Fashion Week for Spring 2014! Or, as I like to call it, “Let’s grub for all the rich peoples’ money!” week.
Cuz, let’s be honest. That’s what it is. People with skills, showing off their goods to the wealthy people who might buy them. None of this is meant for the average consumer because the average consumer no longer has the disposable income to spend a couple hundred dollars on a dress, much less what I imagine most of the new stuff would cost.
But, here I am, again. Looking over the runway shows, not because I want to buy, but because I dig weird fashion and, in some small way, hope to be inspired.
Let’s kick it off with Betsey Johnson, who never stops being bat$h!t. That woman is 71, wore hot pink panty briefs over leggings to present her collection, and still does the splits on her own runway.
I want this 1950s, prom-night-on-the-moon dress now:
I’m on board with panty briefs as daywear because I hate wearing pants:
Caroloina Herrera presented plenty of gowns that would be appropriate on planets from the Dune-verse to the Star Wars universe:
Leeloo Dallas works in an office:

The Blonds have become one of my favorite shows to watch each season because they are soooo over the top and out there and covered in sparkles. None of this has any practical wearability beyond, saaaaaayyyyy, the red carpet or the stage at the VMA’s and I don’t care. I want to walk around dressed like this just so I can feel like a 1960s sci-fi villainess:
Still to come: London, Paris, Berlin.
