For DKNY's 25th anniversary collection, the brand looked fresher than ever. Models like Karlie Kloss hit the runway in overalls, baseball caps, anoraks, and sneakers — a nod to the brand's more urban look in its genesis era. A sports influence continued into neoprene skater dresses with sexy cutout backs, while evening offered up a new version of the "naked dress": bias gowns. Watch on for the full scoop!
It's DKNY's 25th anniversary, but the brand is looking fresher than ever. With "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" playing, models hit the runway in overalls, baseball caps, anoraks, and sneakers — definitely a nod to the brand's more urban look in its genesis era. A sports influence continued into neoprene skater dresses with sexy cutout backs, while evening offered up a new version of the "naked dress," bias gowns with sheer straps that seemed to hover on the body.
And if the clothes weren't enough to get the capacity crowd hyped, the new face of DKNY, Rita Ora, hit the runway for a lap before the finale. Now, what does Donna Karan have up her chic sleeve for the much-anticipated anniversary bash on Monday night? We can't wait to see — too bad we don't have one of those little dresses to wear.
See all the photos and video of the collection here.
The trench coat was first made popular in late '30s and '40s by megawatt beauties like Greta Garbo, Lauren Bacall, and Marlene Dietrich. Today, the chic, tailored, and timeless silhouette is still one of our favorite all-time staples, and the latest cuts from brands like Burberry and Rachel Zoe boast a range of traditional and modern options to choose from. Add a tough touch to the look with leather-sleeved details, or take the classic route in stone or camel hues.
It was a wild week in social media. Selena Gomez turned 21, and her pal Julianne Hough showed us all the celebratory fun via Instagram. Rita Ora was tapped as the new face of DKNY's Resort collection, and the brand shared a video of the singer posing on a taxicab in Times Square. Plus, Poppy Delevingne shared a supercreative photo that we want to re-create stat. Check out all this and more in our social media recap!

Yesterday, when DKNY tweeted, "So guess who we're shooting tomorrow for the #DKNY Resort ad campaign?! Ok, I'll tell you, @RitaOra!! I'll be on set. Stay tuned for pics," we were at the brand's command.
The vigilance paid off, as we've been rewarded this afternoon with a live stream of shots and videos that chronicle the campaign as it happens (hello, brightly hued Rita atop a taxi cab!). No need to wait for the official campaign. We've got what you want to see right here.
No matter where Rita Ora is headed — on stage, a press event, or a nightclub — she never leaves the house without wearing an eclectic ensemble that features a bevy of colors and prints. For her latest London look, the singer stepped out in a metallic DKNY pencil skirt, matching silver pumps, mirrored sunglasses, and a backwards cap. Seeing Rita sporting high shine in broad daylight got us thinking about her daring ways.
Considering the singer is good friends with another experimental style setter, supermodel Cara Delevingne, it comes as no surprise that she loves to work with bold pieces. Sometimes Rita will go all-out fancy in over-the-knee boots and Chanel, while other times she'll keep it casual and sporty in sneakers and neon sweatpants. You never quite know what you're going to get with Rita. Now it's time you assess Rita Ora's style — do you think it's too much or does it work for her?
