Zendaya Coleman is proving to be the future of music and fashion, with a beauty and talent so mesmerizing, she's often compared to the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna. The quadruple-threat, singer, dancer, actress, and model was the toast of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014, keeping the cameras flashing and all eyes on what the former disney starlet would wear next. Here on Glam Damnit, we've got some of Zendaya's best looks of the year so far.
With a beauty like Zendaya, she could wear anything, but this style star goes above and beyond, making fun and inspiring decisions with print, patterns, and accessories, as well as developing a sophisticated taste for fashion, going from classy casual and sexy elegant to youthful urban, and avant-garde chic.
New York City hummed with palpable electricity as legions of fashion fiends swarmed the tents at Lincoln Center to behold the collections built on blood, sweat and glitter. This was New York Fashion Week.
The intrigue of Alexander Wang’s collection enticed fashionistas to schlep down to Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, far from the chaos of Manhattan. Complete with a spinning runway, Wang dazzled with his dramatic flair.
Models were unrecognizable with icy stares, bleached brows and slick-straight wigs, which reflected the androgynous overtones of the show. They marched down the runway in utilitarian dresses with rows of pockets for things you never knew you needed. Wang played with gender bending in menswear-inspired frocks. Billowing slacks hid under oversized coats with massive lapels that veiled any trace of womanly curves.

We've got a dilemma on our hands...as in today is National Fettuccine Alfredo Day, but we're also high in the swing of New York Fashion Week. In case you didn't know, a restaurant-sized dish of the stuff can clock anywhere from 1,000-2,500 calories. Yikes. How will we fit into our designer black skinnies (without a serious muffin top) and still eat the creamiest, yummiest pasta dish on Earth? Well we've found these recipes that use substitutions like cauliflower or greek yogurt to quench our cravings in a guilt-free way. So kick off those Gucci booties and get ready for our obligatory National Fettuccine Alfredo Day post: Fashion Week edition.
Fashionistas, designers, photographers, models and more are flocking to Manhattan for the chicest event in America: New York Fashion Week. As per tradition, a Fashion Plate Prix Fixe (which is open to everyone), will ensure nary a stylish body will go hungry.

After graduating from FIT, Bibhu was hired by Gilles Mendel, CEO of the iconic French furrier J. Mendel, where he became the label’s Design Director - a position he held for nine years. After almost a decade at the helm of J. Mendel, Bibhu, responding to the rapidly increasing demand for his work, moved out on his own and launched his eponymous label, Bibhu Mohapatra, during New York Fashion week in 2009. He is now completing his eighth ready-to-wear collection under his namesake label, which features elegant designs inspired by the theories of human movement and expression. The Spring 2014 collection draws reference from the methods that lead modern and expressionist dance – defying any limitation or regulation of self-expression and defining the modern woman.
