Aussie designer Nicky Zimmermann reminded us how perfectly she outfits the girl's girl with her Spring 2014 runway. There were ruffles aplenty, with sorbet shades and metallics that would work down under or stateside (anywhere, truly). Herewith, the sweetest, frilliest, most unapologetically feminine looks that walked the runway.
On Thursday night, Phillip Lim hosted one of the most anticipated events of New York Fashion Week: a party celebrating his Target collaboration. Everyone from Solange Knowles to Jessica Alba and Maria Sharapova attended the event, and all of them were wearing pieces from the offering.
The rest of the party's guest list, which included Lim's fellow designers Richard Chai and Marchesa's Keren Craig, had the opportunity to shop the collaboration early. Throngs of attendees took that opportunity, which meant the party was packed and more than a little busy. But with the chance to get pieces of such a great collaboration 10 days early, what else could you expect?

You know The Outnet for its mind-boggling e-clearance setup (the bargain mecca to sister site Net-A-Porter's luxury haven), but it's really upping its fashion game with in-house label Iris & Ink. In its third season, the London-designed line includes leather dresses and silk tops, and unlike the rest of the reduced-price merchandise on the site, it's there season-long. The Fall 2013 wares started rolling out yesterday, with additional items to go up over the next few weeks.
Because we rarely need an excuse to shop, we've scouted out our favorite offerings from the Fall line
Though there are countless designers to choose from when a woman wants to look beautiful, when her goal is to be a lady, nobody suits her better than Carolina Herrera. Perhaps that's because Herrera herself is the quintessential lady in her signature crisp, white button-downs and neatly shorn locks. The Venezuelan beauty's personal style — formed from the early age of 13 when she first attended Haute Couture shows — is as much an influence on her feminine and printed gowns as the botanical inspirations she finds for her often floral designs. Click through to see where Herrera's been as we look forward to where she's going for Spring 2014.
The price: $45
Why we want it: iPad cases are one of those things that I know can be fun, but I still tend to steer towards the practical and durable — read: boring. But how can you pass up an iPad case that makes you smile with delight every time you look at it? With all the wit and whimsy that you expect from Kate Spade New York, this iPad case features perfectly toned legs in perfectly adorable heels doing a perfectly charming little dance. When I start getting a little testy during my more jam-packed moments at Fashion Week, I'm going to whip this out of my purse for a pick-me-up.
Labor Day has come and gone, and while we're excited to throw on our cozy sweaters and cute Fall booties, we're not quite ready to say goodbye to Summer. Community member Alex knows what we're talking about, and her elegant ensemble showed us the perfect way to transition from hot Summer days to chillier Fall weather. A black-and-white look is undoubtedly classic, but with some ruffled texture and silk fabric, timeless gets a trendy boost. Her sleeveless top and knee-length skirt show just the right amount of skin too — perfect for warm days and cool nights. And those red suede booties? Well, we always love a good pop of color. Funky jewelry, a simple black clutch, and black aviators finish off this superchic outfit.

There are still nine days until the Phillip Lim For Target collection lands, but two lucky ladies — Jessica Alba and Solange Knowles — already got to take on the trends at the line's launch party during New York Fashion Week tonight. Jessica dressed up a playful "Boom!" sweater with navy-and-black tuxedo trousers, then finished with a black structured bag also from the collection. Solange stuck to her love of prints in an animal-print miniskirt, then tempered the wildness via the navy-and-black tuxedo blazer. Both stars were fashionable in their respective ensembles, but who wore her Phillip Lim For Target look better?
