Claire Danes, Alexa Chung, Jessica Alba, and Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen All Celebrate Fashion’s Night Out!
Fashion’s Night Out took New York City by storm, and FabSugar went to all of the hottest parties! We caught up with Claire Danes and Jessica Szohr at Saks Fifth Avenue, Alexa Chung downtown at Madewell, Jessica Alba at Ralph Lauren, and Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen at the Elizabeth and James pop-up shop. Watch to see all of the action!
For Zac Posen's Spring '11 Z Spoke debut, we had high hopes — and this is a collection that delivers all the goods we could ask for. It's funky, fun, fresh, signature Posen doing what he does best: eclectic colors, prints, and dresses cut with fit and flair. We love the unexpected pairings, juxtaposed lacy bra tops layered over casual separates; flirtatious, corseted, cutout day dresses, suits; even Crystal Renn in ruffled bloomers. It's all a little retro-whimsical, then, he pulls out a showstopper and totally surprises: a sleek, black, cutout maxi that delivers something a little futuristic, mega chic. It's hard to choose a favorite, we're so into it all — ultra-vibrant, deliciously girlie, subtle edge.

When Prabal Gurung designs, you know he's going to churn out a glamorous collection of must-have dresses. Case in point: the black sequined and white origami stunners below. But for Spring '11, the designer also threw in some super sleek suits and separates, validating his all-encompassing talent. The color scheme started off white, almost hinting at a minimal collection. Then as the looks went on, Prabal flipped a switch; things got bright, way bright, as in coral, orange, teal, yellow, and red. Sexy cuts, amazing details, the most prominent being sequined fringe that swayed as the models walked. But just when things got too hot, they were tempered via sharp blacks and calm beiges, creating a collection that's part bold, part understated, and all beautiful — just what we've come to expect from Prabal!

Cynthia Rowley’s retro-pop collection was a real Saturday morning treat. As one of the first shows of day three, fashionistas were moving a little slower in their Louboutins (especially after last night's Fashion's Night Out events). Good thing Rowley drew an exciting star-studded front row — Rebecca Romijn looked gorgeous in towering heels and dramatic red lips, while Alan Cumming accessorized with Rowley’s signature Band-Aids on each hand. Other celebs waiting for the show to start? Lauren Bush, Aisha Tyler, Nigel Barker, Katie Lee, Emme, and Tracee Ellis Ross.
Once the lights dimmed, it wasn't long before Candyland pastel colors (mint greens, baby blues, salmon pinks) splashed onto the runway. The rainbow hues were color-blocked onto shiny below-the-knee silk dresses and transparent chiffon boatneck tees. Bold '70s necklaces in solid bar shapes were paired with both the shiniest and sheerest materials. To top it off, models sashayed one by one in printed platform heel/barely-there sock combos. Buttons, baubles, and appliqué details exploded at the neckline, hemline, and sleeve edges. Each piece featured a surprise design element, whether it was peek-a-boo stripes or strategically placed circular cutouts and embellishments. There was just enough colorful kitsch to go around, and everyone walked out with an extra bounce in their step.
