Dimelo: "How Do I Get Him To Call Me His Girlfriend?"
Dimelo: "How Do I Get Him To Call Me His Girlfriend?"

Dear Pauline,

I've been dating this guy for two months and he calls me sweet names when I'm with him. He's also always nice to me, especially when I sleep over his house. I think I'm falling in love but I don't want to say anything too early. He hasn't asked me to officially be his girlfriend yet and I'm starting to wonder. Am I being used? Or is he just slow in the commitment department? What do you think?

Sincerely,

Esperando

Below are a few other things I learned at the press conference.

Beauty Fit For A Princess at Badgley Mischka

Backstage at Badgley Mischka, we caught up with design duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka where they shared their Fall 2014 inspiration.

“Fall is all about a polished textured glamour with a modern edge that translates seamlessly from day into evening. The fabrics, palette and embellishment are inspired by the romance and opulence of turn-of the century Vienna, specifically the artistic movements if Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffman. Badgley Mischka plays textures and dimension with prints and embellishment for a rich, informed luxury.”
