Is this just a crazy, random coincidence, or was Narciso Rodriguez's Fall 2009 collection partially inspired by Café Tacuba? The Cuban American designer, who is a favorite of First Lady Michelle Obama, sent his models down the runway earlier this week in eye-slit headgear that bore a strong resemblance to the low-brimmed hat that's become a signature look for Rubén Albarrán, a member of the Mexican alt-rock band.

From Oct. 20 to Oct. 26, 2008, Mexico's best and brightest fashion designers showed their finery at Campo Marte in Mexico City for Mexico Fashion Week. In its tenth year, the event began as a minimal affair with one designer showing per night. "Today we have over 30 shows in six days," said José Andrés Patiño, FWM's general director to WWD. The lighting was gorgeous, the models were breathtaking and the clothes were innovative, smart and artfully executed.

Nevertheless, L.A. still attracts tons of celebrities to grace the front rows, especially Latina starlets.

Protruding collarbones. Visible ribcages. Spaghetti noodle-like arms. Pretty images, they're not, but we saw them everywhere during New York Fashion Week. Skinny doesn't begin to describe what models look like these days, and while Manhattanites will do as they do, writing articles (here's another) and holding panels about the lack of diverse faces and bodies on the runway after the fact, Spain is taking preemptive action.
