A cityscape collided with nature on Donna Karan’s runway Monday, where the designer rolled two of her passions -- NYC and the beach -- into one stunning collection. Her inspiration was light – reflections off the glass and steel in the city, and the illumination of the sand, sky and water at the beach.
The models here, made up with red-rimmed eyes and donning sculpted Lucite headpieces, looked...Read more »
Pink-haired designer Chris Benz is known for his showstopping, eccentric creations, and Kelly Osbourne dressed for the occasion at his New York Fashion Week runway show Monday.
Osbourne wore a collared dress with a hot-pink skirt, mustard-yellow bodice and orange sleeves, and topped it off with yellow shades and a whimsical updo. With her was boyfriend Matthew Mosshart, who was sporting...Read more »
On a runway that resembled a roadway, Reem Acra sent out a series of day and evening looks that offered up a little something for everyone. The pieces varied wildly. It is unlikely, for example, that the lady who buys the navy tailored pantsuit would be caught dead in one of Acra’s nude illusion gowns … these with completely sheer panels running down both sides, from shoulder to floor (um, that...Read more »
A gorgeous swirl of chiffon, organza, twill and georgette drifted down Carolina Herrera’s runway Monday morning at the tents at Lincoln Center as the designer showed off a slimmer, more modern collection of dresses, gowns and even shorts (yes, shorts — high-waisted flounced jobs) for Spring 2013. There wasn’t a ladies-who-lunch society suit or a wide ballgown in the bunch – Herrera hallmarks – though...Read more »
Truth told, Christian Siriano is known for over-the-top confections, but at Saturday’s afternoon show, he took a more discreet route via the ballet. Inspired by movement and particularly the “Dream Ballet,” performed by the American Ballet Theatre, the show opened with slim pale pink polka-dot cropped pantsuits — a gussied-up version of what dancers might wear hanging around. Later, that same silo...Read more »
The crowd was getting antsy sitting alfresco on the terrace of Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center Sunday night as Zac Posen was running late, almost by 40 minutes. But then, hit the music (Etta James, singing the 1940s song “A Sunday Kind of Love”) and — BOOM — in saunters Naomi Campbell wearing a vintage-y hibiscus print silk twill and chiffon frock.
All is forgiven.
Campbell was the...Read more »
The man sure can pick ‘em — any other night for an alfresco fashion show would’ve been hot and sticky, but the humidity finally broke on Sunday, just hours before Tommy Hilfiger transformed a section of the historic High Line into his own beachy boardwalk, complete with cabana and scores of lanterns hanging from above, swaying in the breeze.
With a nautical journey in mind, Hilfiger stuck...Read more »
Alec Baldwin’s new bride, Hilaria, may be new to the Carmen Marc Valvo brand, but she’s hip to the designer’s reputation. “The man knows how to dress a woman,” she said, sitting front row at Valvo’s show Sunday night.
There’s no question that’s what keeps his clients coming back, whether it’s members of the Upper East Side social set or celebs like Vanessa Williams (who was also in the audience). ...Read more »
For the design duo behind Skaist Taylor, it starts with the music. These ‘70s-sprung SoCal gals — Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash Taylor, who previously founded the Juicy Couture label — seem to have melodies pulsing through their veins as much as fashion sense. So it’s no surprise that their free-spirited collection started with a musical moment: The Troubadour club, 1972, a post-hippy pre-disco...Read more »
The gentle sheen of woven cellophane. Bright, geometric-print lace and macramé. And good ol' madras plaid. All three got equal time in Derek Lam’s spring collection, shown in a downtown warehouse near the Hudson River on Sunday.
The madras came out first, in super-wearable dresses and separates, some in contrasting muted shades (black, fatigue green and sun yellow) that looked...Read more »
