Fashion and music have long had a complex and intertwined relationship. From the way musical movements have inspired designers (remember Marc Jacobs’s grunge obsession in the ’90s?) to how clothes can often help cultivate a musical persona, the two media have always complemented one another. In the middle of this fall’s New York Fashion Week, which runs Sept. 4–11, Fashion Rocks, a massive charity event hosted by Ryan Seacrest, will go down at Barclays. Naturally, the show features the most fashionable lineup of artists imaginable, including Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Pitbull, Usher, Miranda Lambert, Duran Duran, KISS, Luke Bryan and more. If you can’t make it, the event will be televised live on CBS, but at least wear your couture pajamas while viewing.
