X marks the spot in Noelle Tan's show at Civilian

It's a low-contrast, deeply banal shot of asphalt --- just a strip of road in Dallas, Texas, with a few white lane markers and a curb looming in the distance. Look at bit closer, though, and there's a twist....

Met to celebrate late designer Alexander McQueen

The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will celebrate the work of the late designer Alexander McQueen in its annual spring exhibition. The show, which will open May 4 and run through July 31, 2011 will be kicked off with the glamorous spectacle that has come to be known -- at least in fashion and New York social circles -- as the party of the year.

Glamour magazine honors 'Women of the Year'

Women of the Year awards Monday night at Carnegie Hall in New York. The magazine is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the honors, which take note of women who are making a positive impact on our world. This year's winners ranged from fashion designer Donatella Versace to a Somali mother and her two daughters -- all doctors -- who have created a refugee camp and medical clinic on their family farm, where they are providing aide to thousands of displaced souls.

Michelle Obama's fashion diplomacy

Once again, first lady Michelle Obama has allowed her fashion choices to speak to the ways in which we are all part of the global community. For the state dinner in New Delhi, Obama chose an ensemble by New York-based designer Rachel Roy, who is Indian-American. She paired the designer's "sable Moroccan tunic" with a "dune velvet skirt." Her evening attire hinted at the luxurious sparkle of traditional Indian fabrics and the elegant drape of a sari without stepping into mimicry.
