the checklist

everything you need to know about the final days of fashion week.

THE CHECKLIST CURATOR: Ashley Baker, Executive Editor

THE LOOK: Calvin Klein Collection Look 22
I’ve been fixated on argyle sweaters since I discovered the "Metallica" variety last year, and ever since, they’ve been integrated into my wardrobe. Leave it to Calvin Klein Collection designer Francisco Costa to interpret them best in this skirt/sleeveless turtleneck combo.

THE FACE: Metallic eyes and crimson lips at Anna Sui
I’ve been known to rock a bright red lip (Tom Ford’s Wild Ginger, if you must know)  and a metallic teal eye (courtesy of Nars’ Duo Cream Eyeshadow in Burn it Blue), but never at the same time. No longer!

THE INSPIRATION: Kaitlyn Farrington
This newly-minted Olympic gold medalist—and her incredible ride on the halfpipe---has been on my mind for the last 24 hours. The New York Times reported that her parents sold off their herd of cows, one by one, to fund her career, and the payoff has been huge. She has such great energy--a total NYLON girl. I’ve got to get on a board this season...

THE NEWS: The return of House of Cards!
At NYLON, we’re completely fixated on this show, and we’ve been anticipating the second season for months. It’s about time! If you’re looking for me this weekend, I’ll be in front of the TV.

THE SONG: Lorde, "400 Lux"
Pure Heroine reminds me, in one way, of one of my all-time top albums, Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black"---every week, I seem to have identified a new favorite song. For the moment, it's "400 Lux," which has been on constant rotation. I keep hoping to see Lorde at a fashion show, but nothing yet. Yet!
