It was a total color explosion on the runway at Diane von Furstenberg — though the brand is known for its use of bright hues and standout prints, the Spring 2013 collection left us reeling. Get a load of all the slinky, sophisticated looks and the punchy color palette when you press play now.
Catherine Malandrino's consummately chic Parisian girl is taking on Spring 2013 with a lighter palette (read: pastel hues and white made the cut) and a vested interest in nailing the details. No texture was off-limits, either. Fishnet stockings complemented colorful patent leather pumps, scalloped edges made their way onto minty green jackets and slim pencil skirts, and embroidered mesh was layered over delicate blouses, to start. We spied zippers, geometric crochet work, and even a feathered heel. Check out all the pictures from Catherine Malandrino's Spring 2013 collection and come back soon for our full review.
Zac Posen's Spring 2013 runway show was a lesson in 1940s glamour dressing — Naomi Campbell opened the show in a floral wiggle dress, and the rest of the looks followed suit with gorgeous, curve-hugging silhouettes and a romantic palette of navy, cream, burnt orange, and sea-foam green. Watch Posen's beguiling Spring collection now and let us know what you think of it in the comments!
As the face of DKNY, we can count on spotting Ashley Greene in fresh Donna Karan wares on and off the red carpet. Now we can also expect the brunette beauty to don some custom pieces in Breaking Dawn Part 2. We caught up with Ashley at the DKNY Spring 2013 show, and among the chic revelations dished, she told us more about the dresses we can expect in the upcoming Twilight installment, hashed out her bicoastal style, and revealed how her style has evolved. Find out what she had to say on all accounts — click play now! Hair by Justin Woods from Kérastase and Makeup by Angelica Perri. Clothing provided by Rent the Runway.
Rebecca Taylor was inspired by the Hawaiian Islands for her ultrafeminine Spring '13 collection. The designer told us all about her thought process this season, including how she opted for a "more cleaned-up, more polished, more modern" look over her signature bohemian aesthetic, and how she loves making women feel feminine in her clothes. Rebecca also revealed what she'd be doing if she wasn't a fashion designer — and you won't believe her answer! It's all in today's Fab Flash.

DKNY's Spring 2013 collection was full of sporty separates like mesh bodysuits, nylon anoraks, and baseball caps (a trend we happen to love around here). Whether you're a downtown girl on the go or just want to dress like one, DKNY's Spring is perfect for channeling that athletic spirit. Watch the full runway show now to see what we mean.
Naomi Campbell opened, Coco Rocha closed, and in between, an all-star model cast including Karolina Kurkova and Crystal Renn took the runway alfresco, showcasing a bevy of Oscar-worthy gowns with Zac Posen's signature corseted bodices and drama-inducing trains — all with a glamorous '40s-inspired tilt. The hustle before the show calmed at last as front-rowers like Anna Dello Russo (in a gold fascinator) made their way to their seats and Posen's show began with Etta James playing dreamily across the Lincoln Center Plaza. It wasn't just the music or our surroundings; we were transported entirely with every look — most noticeably to another decade, with vintage, '40s-inspired trumpet silhouettes and skirt suits (and the coiffed waves to match).The romance was palpable from start to finish, beginning with a lineup of flirtier day dresses, all with sweetheart necklines, and culminating in a white-tiered organza ball gown — which made Coco Rocha look more like a blushing bride walking down the aisle than a model on the catwalk.
- Trends: Peplum, tulle, trumpet silhouettes, sweetheart necklines, and skirt suits.
- Colors: Navy, white, rose, red, soft blue, nude, and olive.
- Key Piece: It's nearly impossible to choose favorites, but the rose-embroidered dresses and gowns were particularly lovely.
- Accessories: Satin ankle-strap pointy-pumps; brooches; jeweled studs, bracelets, and necklaces; cat-eye sunglasses.
- Who Should Wear It: Posen's model lineup, like Coco Rocha and Crystal Renn, will likely wear this set off the runway, too; we'd love to see it on A-listers like Jennifer Connelly and Penelope Cruz.
If anyone is going to forecast the next wave of red-carpet glamour, we're pretty sure Monique Lhuillier would top that list. For Spring 2013, the designer predicts that even more skin-baring dresses will appear on our favorite A-list starlets — which are exactly the kind of gowns you'll see on her runway. Add to the mix a bevy of slick digital-print sheaths, leather peplum silhouettes, and gorgeous asymmetrical necklines, and you've got, as Monique deems it, a "sensual season" of wares to covet.
