Sportswear Staples Make for an Elegant Donna Karan Collection

For Pre-Fall, Donna Karan goes Elegant. Using Sportswear staples as the foundation. As knitted skirts and simple tees get the up factor when paired with Classic, yet Elegant staples; such as: The Trenchcoat, A Simple Blouse, The Pencil Skirt, A Collared Chiffon Dress, A Strapless Gown, and even my favorite, The Beret. All for a Chic and such Elegant outcome.

DKNY’s Spring 2014 Campaign Shot Today in NYC

Pictures of today’s shoot in Times Square from Donna Karan and DKNY’s Instagram.

In none other than Times Square in New York City, Supermodels Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn star along with Rising star, Eliza Cummings for DKNY‘s Spring 2014 campaign. Since today is Columbus Day in America, and many tourists are in Times Square, I think that it’d be so cool to Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn striking poses as you walk by in Times Square. But one thing that I really like about DKNY’s campaign, is that there are a lot more Models used in the Campaign this time, besides just using and model as the face of the Men and Women’s fashions for DKNY. So I like to see the many faces shine for DKNY.

Ralph Lauren was inspired by life for his Beautiful Spring 2014 collection, as he explained to Harrod’s Marigay McKee at the show. Explaining many of the bursts of brights, and the Beautiful floral and checkered prints. The collection really brings such a Chic Mod 60s vibe with the Monichromatic bright shifts, Round sunglasses a favorite of mine, and the Beautiful preppy Black and White checkers and floral printed get-ups paired with black knee high socks.

The hair was left down straight, with a Chic, effortless bounce to it, very 60s inspired. The makeup left Natural, with some Mascara on the eyelashes.

Lauren begins his collection with the models wearing delicately Beautiful and Classy black pointed-toe pumps, a definite must-have in any women’s closet. When models start coming out in Bright shifts, they wear Beautiful brightly and neutral colored sandals and pumps.

The evening gowns in bursts of Bright colors and with Beautiful ruffles and Sparkles, really bring such a Beautiful, Happy and Fun vibe to the collection. For by far one of my All-time favorite Ralph Lauren shows. A checkered suit pick-me-up in January, yes please!
