Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we think February is one of the most exciting months of the year—between the fun of fashion week and the eye-candy that is award season, not to mention everything in between. In fact, the only problem is knowing where to look next, which is where our latest edition of The Hot List comes in! We have the scoop on six events you should pay attention to in February—from a must-try beauty collection to a must-watch fashion series. On that note, read on for all the news on what is happening this month!
New York, London, Milan, and Paris, oh my! Yes, fashion week arrives later this week and we could not be more excited. This season, you can look forward to a musical performance by Tavi Gevinson, a slew of schedule changes, and more. Plus, maybe the answer to the year-old question: who is taking over at the house of Dior? Stay tuned!
Alexander Wang Swimwear
As if you needed another reason to swoon over Alexander Wang, the label has just launched its first ever swimwear collection. The line stays true to Wang’s signature sporty-chic aesthetic, with plenty of cool cut-outs and sexy silhouettes on offer. We are particularly partial to the black bikini and red scuba-like suit above, both available now at AlexanderWang.com.
If you want to wear a sophisticated suit this spring/summer season, we suggest you check out the latest must-try runway trend: short suits. Seen at both Jill Stuart (left) and Jenni Kayne (right), among others, the short suit is the perfect mix of preppy, playful, and polished. To try this look, check out Rebecca Minkoff’s Becky Jacket ($328) and Desert Shorts ($198).
Although we are looking forward to finding out if Michelle Williams will win her first Oscar for her turn in My Week with Marilyn, we are really looking forward to seeing what she and her Hollywood cohorts wear on the red carpet. Between the couture, the jewels, the heels, and the hairstyles, it is certain to be a fashion wonderland.
OPI Holland Collection
If you like trying a different color every time you hit the nail salon, the new Holland Collection by OPI is made for you. The line features colors of every kind—from A Roll in the Hague, a playful orange, to I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!, a strong blue. The Holland Collection arrives on February 8 at select salons and Drugstore.com.

If you have been wondering what it takes for a designer to win the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, now is your chance to find out. The Fashion Fund is a new online video series that offers a sneak peek into the competition—with appearances by Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg, Joseph Altuzarra, and more.
