Faran Krentcil of NYLON is covering Fashion Week for the Huffington Post, and she obviously knows her audience. "Progressive types believe that the industry should ditch fashion shows altogether and broadcast their presentations live online, so everyone gets the same perfect view (and the fashion houses save the million dollar budget from a show). That's pragmatic and democratic, and it'll happen after Sarah Palin's daughter gets an abortion." [HuffPo]
