#2611 Should I Get Into An Open/Polyamorous Relationship?

Another week, another Good Question. An anonymous young lady asks: So I just met a guy who is polyamorous and has multiple girlfriends. He's super open and honest about them, so I feel a bit confused because on one hand it feels wrong to go out with him but on the other hand it feels somewhat refreshing that he's so open about it! I've never been in a relationship before, so I'm not sure if it's healthy to begin my first relationship with someone who will not be exclusive to me... but he's really sweet and I like him a lot. I'm so confused. Thoughts? To answer the question, I enlisted the help of my old mate Katherine Lowe from Katherine is Awesome who is in town right now with her stellar boyfriend Ben and her equally awesome brother James. Go the Kiwis!

#2610 The NYFW Q&A — Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic At The Lincoln Center

Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic

You know those dudes who seem to be on a constant winning streak? Artist Aerosyn-Lex is very much one of those dudes. Not only has he collaborated with everyone from Kanye to Nike, but in a two-day period this fashion week he launched a New York City map project with Rodarte, and he created the prints for Public School's SS15 collection. I caught him in between shows at the Lincoln Center, and gave him my rapid-fire questionnaire. Here's what he had to say for himself.

#2609 New York Fashion Week With A Disposable Camera

Dapper Lou

A few years ago I decided that I didn't want to carry a proper camera around with me every day, which is a bit of a conundrum when you're a one-man-shop, but then I discovered that I could still get some killer fashion week shots with a simple $12 disposable camera, and that everybody loves posing for a disposable camera, so for the last few seasons that's exactly what I've done. And here we are today. This New York Fashion Week I carried two around with me. This is the first, the second is in the shop right now getting developed. As you'll see from this camera, I took it with me to a couple of shows, but to a lot of parties at Up & Down (these shots are from five different nights there over a week or so). I'm pretty sure the next one will have some more fashion-specific type stuff, but who's to say. The results, below!

#2608 Daddy Likes Ugg Australia

On Friday last week, Jenny Albright and I, aka Daddy Likes, deejayed at the Ugg Australia Fashion Week event held at The Lincoln Center, aka NYFW HQ, and it was a good time. We've been deejaying together for a few months now, mainly at nightclubs and hotels around New York City, and our musical style can only be described as TURN DOWN FOR WHAT!? So from 4-6pm on Friday, as waiters carried around trays of tiny ice cream cones filled with tuna tartare, and chicken meatballs with truffle oil-infused aioli; and bloggers, TV stars and a steady stream of show-goers tried on the new season Ugg footwear styles; we blasted out a set that included such classics as Fantasy by Ludacris, How Do U Want It by 2Pac, Forever by Drake,, and A Mili by Lil Wayne. Plus Partition. Three times. I wore Ugg's Kolman sneakers for the event, and if you're looking for a great pair of leather low-tops that'll keep your feet warm for winter, I'd highly recommend them — they come sheepskin-lined for your walking pleasure.

#2607 The NYFW Q&A — Adam Gallagher At The Lincoln Center

Adam Gallagher.

There aren't too many (if any) male style bloggers who've managed to reach the kind of internet fame as their female counterparts, but Adam Gallagher of I Am Galla fame has nailed it — the guy currently boasts over 850,000 Instagram followers, and he ain't stopping anytime soon. I caught him outside The Lincoln Center yesterday as he was getting photographed by a constant stream of admirers, and we talked about everything from how to make it as a blogger to that one time he sat next to Iggy Azalea at a show; plus who he gives a right swipe to on Tinder, his love for Chipotle, and what he listens to when he's working out at the gym. It begins...
