For Fall 2011, Lubov and Max Azria did what they do best when it comes to Herve Leger: bandage dresses, of course. Yet unlike the miniskirts of collection past, this season saw a noticeable drop in hemlines — only to the knee, not to worry you girls-about-town — and the occasional fluid skater skirt. The palette stayed in neutral territory with models turned out in white, black, and gold, while slouchy knee-high boots offered a slight tribal vibe. To see all the looks watch our coverage now!
At the BCBGMAXAZRIA show for New York Fashion Week — where Jennifer Love Hewitt and Taraji P. Henson were spotted — we caught up with designer Max Azria who revealed what trends are on the horizon, the hot colors to look out for come Fall, and big hair and makeup trends for next season. Plus, check out the full runway right here on FabSugarTV.
For Fall 2011 Max and Lubov Azria opted for a minimalist approach to dressing, spiked with a touch of that '70s vibe. Fluid, unfussy dresses were accented by low-slung belts and stacked-heel boots, while bold brights were mixed into perk up streamlined silhouettes. We swooned for the vibrant blue and red hues, but watch the whole show here to see which looks you can’t live without!
- Carine Roitfeld's new project has nothing to do with Tom Ford, she says: "A long time he’s my friend, but I don’t want to go back, so I want to look in front of me … Because I did ten years with Tom, then ten years for Vogue Paris. Now I want to do something new. I don’t want to go back. But he’s one of my best friends, Tom" [The Cut]

BCBGMAXAZRIA is the first major show of Fashion Week, and the energy was high this morning. Kelly Rowland, Ashanti, and Maggie Rizer sat front row for a collection that promised to fulfill a "desire for simplicity" while providing "modern elegance." That translated into long, diaphanous dresses, many of which were backless or belted, soft layers, and a mostly neutral palette with a few pops of bright orange and purple. While the longer, looser proportions and turtlenecks didn't make for an overtly sexy show, there was a definite sensuality evoked through the sheer fabrics and the play of layers. FabSugarTV was able to chat with the designer behind the scenes, and here are the main highlights from the show:
- Trends: Clean, modest sensibility, tissue-thin turtlenecks, sculptural details like sheer panels, asymmetric hems, cutout shoulders, and colorblocking.
- Colors: Palette of neutrals: cream, beige, and navy, with pops of orange and purple.
- Key Look: Minimal silk dress worn with a thin turtleneck and boots.
- Accessories: '70s-style suede and leather boots.
- Who Would Wear It: Artsy types who crave simplicity and modest sensuality.
