A Weekend Runway Rundown, (Well Sort Of)

image image image

Designer, Peter Som, kicked off Friday, with none other than a vibrant collection of: Mixing Prints of all kinds, Elegant silhouettes, and of course feathers.

Jason Wu is most definitely a fashion genius!!!! Having designed Michelle Obama’s inaugural Ball Gown, both in 2009 and in 2013, the designer presents a collection showing none other than Rich Hues and Silhouettes for none other Pure Luxury. And who better to open than Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima?

Yeehaw!!!!!! The Cushnie et Ochs Gal hits the countryside in the most Luxurious fashion. Or as my mom’s boyfriend would say, Texas Style!!!!!

I have always seemed to be fond of Rag & Bone’s Fall collections, and Friday’s collection was most definitely no exception. This Fall, Rag & Bone girl takes a hike in style. With her olive checkered print trench, red boots, feathered handbag, and striped blazer; she’s also just as ready to hit the streets of Manhattan.

A mix of more than a 1,000 textures of fabric, prints of many kinds being combined, and a pop of my favorite hue, (especially in honor of Valentine’s Day), Red. A flawless Helmut Lang collection is born.

Very vibrant tribal prints, plaids, and swirls dared to leave us all a lasting impression, Friday, at Suno.

Reminding me of Friday’s Helmut Lang collection, Prabal Gurung also seems to mix many different textures and prints together, seen at his show, Saturday afternoon. The only difference: Gurung incorporates tribal prints, Luxurious fabrics (thinking on the line of silk and feathers), more Dramatic and Vibrant hues, (aka some of my favorites, Navy and Tangerine), and bangled pumps, which are all that wearable on the beaches of Thailand as they would be for an evening cocktail on a Winter’s night in New York City.

Jill Stuart gives her signature feminine staples, a more Punk feel. When the Classic LBD and panty hose get bedazzled, a Furred red trench layers a sleeveless leather LBD, and a brown striped fur jacket and a Grapefruit knit sweater get edgy with baggy leather pants and wedges. Making me thank Stuart for the perfect inspiration to give my feminine wardrobe a little bit of a dramatic edge.

Lacoste Creative Director, Felipe Oliveira Baptista, puts Preppy styles of plaid, argyle, moccasins, and Tweed to the test; mixing them with baggy silhouettes, rich and bold hues, and the signature Sporty elements of the Lacoste House.

Joseph Altuzarra has yet to discover me fantasizing about wearing pretty much every single piece from his collection. From the Equestrian Boots, to those colorblocked fur coats, the Vibrantly hued fringe cocktail dresses, to those Elegantly colorblocked trench coats; I’m left Speechless.

The most notable Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano, gives 1940s silhouettes a more modern twist; with futuristic inspired prints, rich hues, and a wonderful mix of textures.

image image image image image image image

With the mixture of colors and textures, pockets in tweed, cutouts in a Trench, and a Merry-Go-Round of Supermodels, ranging from Caroline Trentini to Karlie Kloss; Alexander Wang has left us with none other than the memo of: Fashion is Ready for the Future!!!

After big changes at Kate Spade New York, (see Style.com for the full story), comes a collection filled with Bright, fun hues of Kelly Green, Cobalt, Navy, & Red, an array of fun clutches, and some of my favorite prints of leopard, flowers, and of course: Plaid. Which if you are just as obsessed as I am with Kate Spade, the collection will last you way into those Sunny Spring days of May.

At Delpozo an array of Plaid and Pastel gowns begin to fill the runway, resulting in a finale filled with Glamorous shimmer and sheen.

Public School NYC left me pretty obsessed with their Preppy tweeds, and rich hues, giving them that perfect New York City edge, and the beanies make me think Cara Delevingne.

Victoria Beckham gives your favorite basic, neutral hues a Chic twist; in the style of a Trench, in futuristic prints, and with my favorite: ruffles.

Herve Leger by Max Azria Spring 2014

image image image image

Max Azria definitely left us all obsessed after watching his Herve Leger Spring 2014 show. Watching the live stream this afternoon, I was just so obsessed with the leather peplums around the models waist, giving the Iconic hourglass shape a Chic Metallic accent to it. The geometric printed dresses were definitely another hit, in my opinion, but when models started coming out in geometric printed dresses with fringe, I was just amazed by how Beautiful and wearable every single one of these looks are. And seeing those iconic, golden heeled shoes, I was just blown away.

From Left to Right and Top to Bottom: Rita Ora in Alexandre Vauthier, Erin Wasson in Alexandre Vauthier, Taylor Swift in Herve Leger by Max Azria, Lady Gaga in Prabal Gurung, Ariana Grande in Kenley Collins, Ellie Goulding, Darren Criss, One Direction, Shailene Woodley in Emilio Pucci, Gabrielle Union in Christian Dior, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus performance look, Joan Smalls in Viktor & Rolf, Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace, Ciara in Givenchy with Rapper Future,  and NSYNC‘s first performance in ten years.

From NSYNC’s first performance after ten years to Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift stunning in Navy hues, to Katy Perry and Garbrielle Union showing off fun prints, there are just so many great moments that happened at Last Night’s VMA’s.

My favorites Last Night were: Taylor Swift, Joan Smalls, Rita Ora, and Selena Gomez. Each of them showed off something that really fit their style and personality, and they each looked gorgeous. Taylor Swift wore a Stunning, plain and simple Navy Herve Leger gown. The dress had some Sexy sparkles and a v-neck at the bustier and the singer took the gown to the next level with Stunning earrings, and Beautiful ladylike curls. Supermodel Joan Smalls wore a white dress from Viktor & Rolf’s Fall 2013 collection. And I just love how Smalls puts the sleeves up a little, and pairs it with a Golden chain necklace and black knee high strap boots, really adding her own Chic, personal flair. And Rita Ora Stuns in Alexandre Vauthier’s Closing look from his Fall 2013 Haute Couture collection. In that Beautiful baby blue hue and the Sparkles and feathers contrast, the gown fits Rita’s personality perfectly. And Rita also debuted a shorter due, resembling Beyonce’s chopped locks a little. Selena Gomez showed off a Beautiful Navy gown from the Atelier Versace Fall 2013 collection, Gomez looks Stunning in this gown, it shows off the perfect amount of Sophistication with a little bit of a Sexy flair, and it’s perfectly age-appropriate for Gomez.

Other celebrities that I thought looked Great this evening as well was Miley Cyrus two fun looks on the Red Carpet, and in her performance. Katy Perry’s leopard Emanuel Ungaro dress, which I though fit her style and personality perfectly. Supermodels Coco Rocha and Erin Wasson really showed ofun such Punk and Edgy looks. With Coco showing off her new, edgy due for the first time on the Red Carpet in a leather bedazzled jacket, with a matching black tee, and leather pants. While Wasson shows off a black sheer fabric Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Haute Couture dress, something that only models could really pull off. I also really admired the studded gown that Ellie Goulding showed off. And the rich, Oxblood hued tux that Darren Criss wore. Lady Gaga just really showed off a Stunning, unexpected Prabal Gurung gown in black leather, taking a more conservative route than her past looks, like the meat dress at the VMA’s. And I just adored Ariana Grande’s floral print Kenley Collins dress.
