  • Did Bella Hadid walk the runway wearing a padded toilet seat around her neck? See the weirdest items at fashion week.

    Weird and wild fashion is nothing new to the catwalk. During Paris Fashion Week on Thursday night, Bella Hadid walked down Off-White’s runway wearing what appears to be a plush, padded mini toilet seat around her neck, as one Twitter user noted. Although it’s not actually a toilet seat, it does bear a remarkable uncanny resemblance to one. In the show, Hadid walked alongside her model pal, Kendall Jenner, each of them wearing all-white athletic ensembles. The theme of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White collection was, fittingly, track and field.Real-life track stars from across the globe walked in the show, including English Gardner, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, and Cecilia Yeung. Abloh’s connection to sport is nothing new. Earlier this summer, the designer unveiled his special collaboration with Nike in designing a tennis-themed collection for Serena Williams to wear during the U.S. Open. This collection’s mixture of sport and high fashion felt only natural. Neon-green one-piece track uniforms were intermixed with svelte blazers, snakeskin-print trousers, and a couture version of Williams’ tennis tutu look, this time in a soft shade of baby blue and an asymmetrical tulle maxi skirt. Off-White’s “toilet seat” is just one of many odd and strange fashion accessories to come down the catwalk this fashion week.

  • #MeToo is center stage at Seoul Fashion Week

    Fashion designers have always been inspired by politics. And at a time when there’s so much political drama around the world to draw from, runways in cities from New York to Moscow and Seoul have been filled with clothing that makes more than just a sartorial statement.During Seoul Fashion Week, one Korean designer, Gee Choon-hee of Miss Gee Collection, brought the #MeToo movement to her catwalk. Models wore sweatshirts and tees emblazoned with bright red and blue embroidered letters that read, “#MeToo,” “#Speak,” and “#WithYou.”These bold statements come at an especially complicated time for South Korea as it is undergoes its own #MeToo movement. The first major case went public in January, when prosecutor Seo Ji-hyun came forward on national television with her own harassment story, accusing a former boss of groping her in 2010. Ji-hyun’s bravery ignited South Korea’s #MeToo movement, which has since witnessed numerous women from a myriad of professions come forth to share their stories.Just a few weeks ago, Seoul saw one of its biggest rising political stars, Ahn Hee-jung, fall at the hands of #MeToo. Hee-jung served as the governor of South Chungcheong Province and has been described as a “Korean Black Obama.” This all changed when one of his former secretaries, Kim Ji-eun, came forward alleging that Hee-jung had raped her four times since last June. The accusation spurred a ripple effect that compelled Hee-jung to resign from his governorship and issue an apology to Ji-eun on Facebook. “It’s all my fault,” Ahn said in the Facebook post. “I want to tell Ms. Kim Ji-eun that I am really sorry. I am asking for forgiveness for my foolish behavior.”In Korean culture, predatory sexual behavior is typically written off as “just the way things are,” and many women learn to look the other way. But this mindset is changing as more women are joining the workforce; rape culture in South Korea is finally being recognized as a national problem that needs to be remedied. South Korea’s president remained silent on the issue for quite a while, but he has since come out in support of #MeToo, signaling what is, hopefully, change in the air.“This is a problem that has been festering so long it could have burst open anytime,” he said in a report by the New York Times, urging legal authorities to open criminal investigations into the growing number of sexual abuse cases. “I applaud those who had the courage to tell their stories.”Above, see all of the political statements made at fashion weeks so far.• The top 6 trends from Paris Fashion Week • The top 3 Milan Fashion Week trends to add to your wardrobe now • 25 Italian women took off their clothes in public — but for a really good reason Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • From plastic PVC boots to platform Crocs, all the wildest shoes from Fashion Week

    Here’s a preview of what to expect in footwear for next spring.In Paris, Karl Lagerfeld created ‘fancy PVC boots‘ for Chanel. Virgil Abloh embraced a similar concept to that of Lagerfeld’s— putting clear plastic over his black pumps. At Sacai, Chitose Abe used rope ties for her heels. But it wasn’t all about industrial materials. Stella McCartney put models in feminine satin heels and at Acne Studios, models wore edgy mules made of croc.In Milan, designers were all over the map for footwear. On one end, designers embraced opulence and luxury, as seen at Dolce & Gabbana, whose shoe collection included jewel-encrusted gladiator sandals and over-the-top silver beaded boots. On the other end, brands like Fendi and Arthur Arbesser opted for shoes with sculptural heels and modern graphic prints.But there were still some brands whose shoes fell in-between the two genres, such as Moschino and Prada, whose shoes took a more hard-edged, rock ’n’ roll style incorporating patent leather and studs.In London, it was all about the statement shoe. Mary Katrantzou sent models down the runway in vibrantly colored platform shoes, each embellished with her name across the platform. Christopher Kane continues to incorporate sponge material onto his heels. Though it isn’t shocking from the British designer, who had previously made headlines pairing Crocs with his runway looks.Still, modern, minimalistic footwear continued to thrive, too. Lush bow slides were spotted at Simone Rocha, while understated white heels and sandals were spotted at Joseph and Peter Pilotto.Popular catwalk styles from NYFW include lots of boots with metallic, sparkly details, as shown at Christian Siriano and Calvin Klein. Sporty, athletic-style heels will be everywhere next spring, as shown at Monse — where models strutted the runway wearing heels made of classic white tube socks — and Fenty Puma, where the brand incorporated shoelaces and plastic buckles similar to what you might find at your local REI store. Mules will continue to be in fashion next spring, but they will feature colorful, bold racer stripes, as spotted at Tibi.Take a look back at all the best spring 2018 shoes from PFW, MFW, LFW and NYFW.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Kaia and Presley Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s model kids, share catwalk for first time at Burberry  • Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid rule the runway at Tommy Hilfiger, and the collection is selling out fast  • Kaia Gerber’s runway debut was a lot different than mother Cindy Crawford’s in 1991Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
