Am I really at New York Fashion Week?
OMG that's Lincoln Center!
And hey there, photographers are taking pictures of my outfit! So this is what it's like...
I don't think I need to tell you that Fashion Week was amazing! Like I said in my last Fashion post I've been dreaming of going to NYFW for years, so just to be in the city during this time is so exciting, but throw in front row tickets to shows and the chance to walk the runway and I'm over the moon. I'm so excited to see how the fashions for next season will translate from the runways to the street, based on the shows I'm expecting lots of sheer detailing and light airy silhouettes. Check out my photo gallery below detailing my favorite moments on and off the runway! Get ready for some serious street style inspo!
Spring is the time for femininity, for pretty, soft, and girly. I loved seeing so many ladylike styles gracing the street, especially all of the tea length skirts and colorful frocks. After sifting through these pics and watching the INCREDIBLE Monique Lhuillier show I can confirm what every good Southern Belle knows. Dress like a lady, keep it classy and you will always be in style.
P.S. Look who I found...it's my big sister Miss Universe! How gorgeous does Gabriela look in this vibrant dress? I love how the printed heels act as the perfect accent to this powerful look. And I think Gabriela is a queen in every way so of course anything is going to look amazing on her! I also ran into the gorgeous Natalie Zfat and Alyssa Campanella! (See above row, far right) Alyssa is the blogger behind jumpersandjasmine.com and was Miss USA 2011, and Natalie is a social media guru! But post Carolina Herrera they were just pure perfection.
Speaking of classy and classic, one can never go wrong with this tried and true combo. That's right, black and white is still in! What I love about these two girls is that their dresses, while a common color scheme, are anything but common cuts. Check out those slits!
Now onto my looks! First my 'paparazzi' outfit for when I went to photograph outside Lincoln Center...
Snapped while in the elevator. Because that's super classy....
Wearing my favorite Audrey tank and distressed denim + novelty printed sneakers. Couldn't help copying the classic bun and shades look. Thanks for the inspiration A!
But the highest highlight of the entire week was actually walking in my first NYFW show! I had two looks for a new label, Oudifu, a Chinese brand that was making it's debut here in the States. And I got to close the show! I was so impressed with how the production was run behind the scenes at the tents, it wasn't a chaotic madhouse like I always assume backstages are but was on time, organized, and relaxed. Definitely helped calm my nerves!
So to recap, Fashion Week was awesome. And that's that.
|Peace out Fashion Week. It's been real.|
