All day I dream of Preen — you know what I mean? But today, after leaving the Preen Spring show, I couldn't shake the fabric anemones the designers used. Overly used. Overall, the collection was awesome — it was more airy than their body-con collections past. Less tight, more light. The colors were spot on: gray and taupe offset by crisp white, chartreuse, and pink sherbet. Fabrics were knotted and twisted in the utmost Preen way; lace patchwork was a new spin, a black iridescent fabric was sci-fi sassy. But in an attempt to be more textural, the designers doused skirts, dresses, and shoulders in these scrunchy fabric anemones. Sometimes it was cool, sometimes it was unflattering. Admire the fresh Preen shoes for a sec, then pray tell: do you love or hate the fabric anemones?

Gwen Stefani took a break from her No Doubt tour to show her Spring '10 designs for L.A.M.B. at New York Fashion Week. She also found time to talk to PopSugar about her tour experience and motherhood.
But what we were most interested in is how she chose her outfits for the tour: "It was actually quite hard because we didn't have a record coming out, so we just went back to basics and tried to pick things that were very classic. Things that I kind of — things I thought just signified me. Then we kind of summed it all up."
My favorite from when I saw ND this Summer was the black-and-white houndstooth sequin jumper — so Gwen, so Fab!
I couldn't help but ask myself, "Would Michelle Obama wear that?", while checking out Jason Wu's tantalizing Spring collection. Indeed, I saw a couple pretty dresses that Michelle would jump for, but his creations aren't just for the First Lady. Any cutie would be so lucky to don his array of youthful separates and magical frocks. For separates, the designer dreamt up a range of sporty, yet polished tweed suits, chambray tops, metallic pleated skirts, and a ton of fun prints. Dresses varied from romantic shapes adorned with frothy feathers and intricate ruffles, to polished streamlined sheaths, and flirty cocktail dresses.
For color, Wu accompanied vibrant hues of coral, purple, blues, deep yellow, and pink with classic neutral tones. To offset the bold colors, the designer kept his shapes structured and modern. All together a very wearable, very wonderful collection — I cant wait until Spring! 2009 was a great year for Wu but I'm thinking 2010 might be even greater.

While Pop was chatting it up with Gwen Stefani, I was doing what Fashion's Night Out was supposed to do — shopping! And gallivanting and celeb-spotting. You ready for my FNO adventure? My fellow fashion junkie friend and I started at Bergdorf Goodman where many fashion festivities were going on. Along the way I saw Rachel Bilson and Hayden waiting for their car in front of their hotel — I said hi to her but don't think she remembered me from when I interviewed her at Brian Reyes's show last Fashion Week.
Moving on, as expected, there was a line to get into the department store, and it was a madhouse inside. I spotted jewelry designer Philip Crangi on the way in; it's hard to miss him, he looks like a pirate. We went straight to the shoe department where we fawned over Balmain boots, Giuseppe Zanotti lovers, awesome Alaia's, and Chanel flats. We quickly decided to leave the Bergdorf madness, but stopped at the M.C.L jewelry counter and said hi to model cutie Karlie Kloss on the way out.
To hear about my epic fashion night out and to see lots more FNO pics,

It's been a busy week with the start of New York Fashion Week, but you better believe I've been keeping a close eye on those stylish celebs. This week's gang is mostly fancied up — George Clooney's girl Elisabetta Canalis worked the red carpet in teal blue Roberto Cavalli, Eva Mendes balanced sexy and elegant, and Penelope Cruz experimented with a new color. But in my humble opinion, Alexis Bledel stole the show in her one-shoulder Christian Siriano. I mean, between the red lips, the two-tone frock, and the red pumps, it's perfection. See who else dazzled us.
Amanda Seyfried walked the red carpet for the premiere of An Education at the Toronto International Film Festival in a pair of sexy, strappy Brian Atwood pumps. She kept the rest of her ensemble relatively simple in a cranberry shift dress, a copper clutch, and an elegant bangle bracelet. Shop her exact shoes in purple and other similar items now!
