Jeffrey Fashion Cares

Celebrating 10 years raising funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS- and LGBTQ-related causes, Jeffrey Fashion Cares held its annual runway show and silent auction in NYC Tuesday night.

The evening brought out supportive celebs, the industry’s most in-demand models, and killer clothes from some of our favorite menswear designers—and most importantly, raised over $800,000 for an amazing cause. Jeffrey Kalinsky (the event’s founder as well as Nordstrom’s EVP of women’s designer—he’s pictured above in a pale-blue button-down and tie) had this to say: “I live for the day when there will be a cure for AIDS and equality for every man and woman in this country. Tonight is about gay rights, and in a greater context, human rights.”

Congrats to Jeffrey and everyone involved, and here’s to breaking a million at Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2014. Scroll down for a look backstage and on the runway—and pop over to our women’s blog, The Thread, for more.


Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless (as well as an enthusiast of opera and hotdogs), hosted the event.


Model Tip #1: Barring the opera and the Oscars, a leather jacket and T-shirt are usually all you need for a night out.


Model Tip #2: Lounge around in Lanvin and Valentino like it ain’t no thing (left).
Model Tip #3: Grow hair like this guy (right—easier said than done).


Model Tip #4: Rad eyebrows are a sign of virility. Thou shalt not tweeze.


The Lineup. Highlights included Jil Sander, Burberry, Dries Van Noten, and Givenchy.


Runway finale. Get psyched for bold colors and camo for spring/summer ’13.
