David LaChapelle is an American photographer known for his references to art history with a modern spin. Although he is well-known in the commercial world and has taken some of the most iconic celebrity photos, as of 2006 he stepped away from the commercial world and began the journey back to his fine art roots. Some of his most popular pieces feature Amanda Lepore, a regular at M&J Trimming!

This Spring New York Fashion Week has been a complete whirlwind, and we’re definitely a little sad that it’s come to a close. But fret not! We’ve scoured the runways for trends that we can’t wait to see this coming spring so you can start your seasonal shopping list early!
Keep it Cropped – Cropped pants and tops have been big for a few seasons now, and they’re not going anywhere! Next year you can look forward to more subtle midriff and ankle action. Menswear – Let’s hear it for the boys this coming spring with menswear-inspired looks.

Fashion Week is drawing to a close. Thank goodness we have all of these beautiful clothes and accessories to look forward to this coming spring! The looks at Donna Karan New York were eclectic and urban-inspired. An ode to the great city of New York, these looks wouldn’t look out of place on a quirky Manhattanite.
Tory Burch has a relaxed and global vibe this season. Mixing refined style with raw edges makes this a perfect for a bohemian-at-heart who happens to be stuck in a less than free-spirited setting. Plus: tropical toile. Need we say more?At Libertine we got a look at an array of eclectic embellishments that make any outfit party-ready.

We saw a surprising amount of sportswear in the past few days. I sports bra here, some trainers there.
This fall we’re falling back into the swinging 60s with short a-line dresses, knee-high boots, and bold graphic prints. Fashion always has a way of reverting on itself, and reinventing the old in a new way. This coming season we’ll be seeing classic mod styles with “modern” additions. Think more metallics, sparkling embellishments, and a diverse color palettes.
We love the bright mustard of this Carven two-piece ensemble. And when it comes to boots, it’s go tall or go home.
Every fashionista has heard the age-old rule that one shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day. But why is this a rule, and more importantly, why should we listen? Rules are made to be broken after all, especially in fashion! Although you may not want to wear an all-white maxi dress with a big floppy straw hat, there are ways to work in white, all the way into next summer!
A white top never goes out of season! If you want to keep rocking those delicate eyelets and crochet-trimmed tops, add some fall color, and a dark blazer. Keep that white blazer out by pairing it with darker, black pieces.
See? Wearing white after summer ends is easy!
Ah Fashion Week. The spring and summer shows of September are one of our favorite times of the year. The air is electrified, the energy is the chaos of a thousand Starbucks coffees, and the influence makes its way throughout New York City. If you’re lucky enough to be able to attend, here are a few tips to make it all go smoothly.
Always keep bandages, bobby pins, and other essentials in your bag. Many fashionistas favor sky-high heels over flats, and if you’re in that category, definitely bring some foot protection.
Stay hydrated! Running from show to show can be pretty tiring, and those glasses of champagne probably don’t help much either. Keep water handy at all times.
Remember a layering piece. Sometimes September can be remarkably cold, make a layering piece a part of your outfit to ensure that the only shivers you get will be inspiration-induced.
Don’t forget to put down your phone. So much of Fashion Week has become about capturing that first shot and being the first to post it on Instagram, but don’t forget to be present too! Watch that runway strut, take in the shapes, colors, sounds and energy. Trust us, there’s nothing like Fashion Week in the city, and you definitely want to be there for it.
We love awards shows because of the talent, the entertainment, but mostly the fashion! This years Emmys did not disappoint in the slightest, with dresses in almost every shape, color and style represented!
This power couple looks incredible. The blue and black suit looks modern and dapper on Matthew McConaughey, while Camila Alves’s white cutout dress looks chic and stylish.This beaded dress worn by Julia Roberts is the perfect playful length! Lizzy Caplan looks radiant in this dramatic black and white gown!
