FASHION SHOW: JASON WU

• Menswear goes girly at Jason Wu’s Fall 2011 fashion show with fitted trousers, lacy sweaters, and bow-tied tops.

• We can totally see First Lady Michelle Obama, who is already a fan of the designer, rocking the third outfit (polka dot blouse and gray pencil skirt) in this runway line.

• P.S. We’ve seen a handful of slicked-down ponytails for Fall 2011. Take note.

RUNWAY BEAUTY: REBECCA TAYLOR

• Hope you still have your hair crimper from middle school, because you might need it this fall! At Rebecca Taylor’s fashion show models smoothed down the top portion of their hair, and crimped the bottom half.

• Ohhhh, pretty! Red lips and gilded shadow is a match made in makeup heaven.

• Below the neck, Rebecca Taylor’s fall collection was full of ’70s Parisian-style tunics, dresses, and trousers.

FRONT ROW CELEB: MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG AT REBECCA MINKOFF

• At the Rebecca Minkoff show actress (and March 2011 Maxim cover model) Michelle Trachtenberg looked unfussy-eclectic in a simple crewneck sweater, over-the-knee boots and a long statement necklace.
