During New York Fashion Week, Google glasses had their first appearance on the runway at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2013 Show. A surprise, since the american label is not really known for digital innovations.
Some models were wearing the Google glasses and, at the very end, even Miss Furstenberg herself did so too. Susie Bubble, who was there – unlikely us – said Furstenberg seemed a little distracted, but that could possibly be a side-effect of her new glasses.
There is also a movie, which shows the last preparations for the show and the final walkthrough through the eyes of Furstenberg. But to be honest, the movie is quite disappointing since there is no digital firework as we expected.
Fashion Queen Furstenberg could also wear a helmet cam, the results would have been the same. But see for yourself:

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
