Save the Runway: DKNY does Fashion’s Night Out

I have no idea how anyone in NYC right now can decide where to make their stops for Fashion’s Night Out. One of the stops I would have liked to take was DKNY. First off, there will be DKNY Limited Edition Fall 2009 ‘Save the Runway’ Tote Bags in honor of Fashion’s Night Out and DKNY’s 20 year anniversary. These are limited edition and one-of-a-kind, 20 will be sold at the Madison Avenue store and 20 will be sold at the SoHo location. Materials on these bags will come entirely from DKNY’s Fall 2009 runway. Bag will be sold for $35 and proceeds benefit the National September 11th Memorial & Museum.

Why Has SATC 2 Gone Like Totally '80s?

Our poor eyes! Sarah Jessica Parker was once again spotted looking like the '80s threw up on her. It was fun seeing a couple of crazy looks from the ladies, but now it seems the totally awesome decade's fashions have totally invaded the SATC 2 set! What's going on?

Kim K's Blog: The Kardashian are NOT at War!!!

I just read this Star Magazine cover story and laughed out loud. Cat fights? Jealous fits? Trash talk? If my sisters and I have cat fights they are 100% playful, sisterly fights!! You've seen how we tease each other on the show, and how we joke around on Twitter... it's what sisters do!!! There's no war here, people! We all totally support each other in anything and everything we do. Plus a little competition never hurt anyone ;) We drive each other to do better. Khloe and I totally motivated each other to lose weight, work out and generally be healthy. I'm so grateful to have my sisters around me and I know we'll always support each other no matter what!

More From the Set of ‘Sex and the City 2′

Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker channels Madonna in her outfit while Kristin Davis looks a little like Jackie O and Cynthia Nixon is rocking a Dorothy Hamil bob like no one’s business.

I need HELP..Bianca or Rolando

Bianca 140mm $695

Rolando 120mm $695

Nicole Richie's Blog: It's a boy

Nicole Richie gave birth to a healthy baby boy - Sparrow James Midnight Madden, yesterday, 9.09. 2009. Finally! Congrats to the happy family!
I like his name, it’s an unusual name but it’s actually cute and goes well with Harlow:)
It’s a boy for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden! The couple welcomed son Sparrow James Midnight Madden in the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 9th in Los Angeles, Calif. Baby boy weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz.
"Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes," reads a statement on Nicole’s website.
Sparrow joins big sister Harlow Winter Kate, 20 months this week.
According to celeb numerologist Tania Gabrielle, Nicole's son has an "extremely rare" birthdate.
Numerologists refer to the number 9 as the number of life and as a signifier of "endings and beginnings," Gabrielle tells Us magazine.
In addition, the number 9 "signifies love, compassion and family," she says. (It is also associated with arrogance and self-righteousness, she notes.)
Sparrow "will likely be highly creative" Gabrielle tells Us. "He could also be a leader. The child will have a lot of gifts."

Kim K's Blog: I Have My Own Stardoll

Me and my stylist Monica Rose both died when we saw this Stardoll!!! I can't believe how exactly alike some of the pieces are to the pieces I've worn. I found my whole Derby outfit! Maybe in the future we can try looks out on my Stardoll to see how they look, haha!

Designer Shoe Pick of the Day: Rock & Republic “Nika” Studded Pump

Rock & Republic is one of my favorite edgy brands, and I was thrilled to see some of the fall collection is now available online. This “Nika” studded pump in suede is beyond hot!

The cranberry suede is just amazing. The placement of assorted studs on the heel cap is hot, and I really like that the studs are only visible from the back. It’s almost like a surprise when you get a peek of the back of the shoe. They also complement the metallic silver heel perfectly.

These pumps are also available in a black leather and a gray leather, and really they are all stunning. The cranberry is so striking, and the leather tends to be a little edgier and harder looking. All the shades will look amazing with denim, leggings, dresses and skirts.

Rock & Republic “Nika” Studded Pump $299 Zappos
