LINCOLN CENTER—Rebecca Minkoff is letting one lucky fan help style her Fashion Week runway show—her very first under the official Mercedes-Benz umbrella. Through the morning of January 24, fans can put together looks using Minkoff's "Dee" Clutch on Polyvore for a chance to win. After the Bergdorf Christmas challenge, Polyvore is clearly the service of choice for fashion contests. But isn't this a surprisingly major prize? The winner better have a good eye—or at least a lot of help. [Polyvore; Previously]
NEW YORK CITY—Oh look, it's the best blind item ever: "Three writers-editors from different fashion-lifestyle publications were each lent super-duper-high-end luxury cars to test-drive out of state for the day. Which one of these editors managed to total her one-of-a-kind prototype valued-at-mid-six-figures vehicle by ramming it into the back of a UPS truck? The car's remains had to be towed back to the city." [Racked National]
