Anna Dello Russo's accessories collection hits stores today! We met up with the fashion icon at the Plaza Hotel in NYC to talk about her new accessories collection for H&M. The Vogue Nippon editor told us all about her love for bijoux and which pieces from the capsule are her favorites. ADR also spilled on her Fashion Week packing process ("I'm the best client of FedEx — I ship a lot") and when she first fell in love with fashion ("when I was born"). You can snap up her eccentric, over-the-top pieces today and check out our amazing interview with Anna in this Fab Flash.
Fashion Week is all about celebrating the next season, and the hard work that designers have put into creating their beautiful collections. But, we had to ask — what would they do if they weren't designers? Watch Fab Flash to hear all of their answers! On Allison McNamara: Haute Hippie top, Melinda Maria earrings.
Were designers inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey for Spring '13? One of the overarching trends we saw during NYFW was exposed lingerie and sexy, leather-infused bras and harnesses. The look, which we saw at Jason Wu, Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs, and more, is all about mixing your boudoir separates — like bralettes, bustier tops, and bondage-style bras — with sleek, sophisticated pieces. Check out our NYFW Trend Report, then get set to show some skin this season.
Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, and more designers had fun with classic stripes on the NYFW runways. From '60s-inspired graphic palettes to patriotic red, white, and blue, the offerings were sleek, polished, and perfect for the season. Get the scoop on Spring's stripes trend — and tips on how to wear it — in this NYFW Trend Report.
Scared to wear stripes? Michael Kors has some winning advice for you on how to face your fear and dive into the trend for Spring '13. We spoke with the designer backstage at his runway show about his East Coast meets West Coast "big city" collection and got some insight on how to flatter your figure with stripes for the season ahead. Michael also shared his thoughts on what Angelina Jolie should wear on her big day. It's all in today's Fab Flash!
Anna Sui was certainly smart to "bookend" her runway show with none other than Karlie Kloss — the designer's decidedly rock 'n' roll Spring '13 collection got a gorgeous lift from the Chicago-born beauty, who opened and closed the production. Anna dressed her models in vintage-inspired slipdresses, zippered jumpsuits, and lace minis and accented each look with a colorful pixie-cut wig — something we've come to expect from the bohemian-cool designer. Watch the full show now to see the collection — and Karlie — in all its glory.
Drawing from icon Jane Birkin, Rachel Zoe's Spring lineup actually looks a lot like the pieces we'd see Zoe wearing herself. A mix of easy, fluid silhouettes, a little leather, and the designer's boho-glam twist are all present for Spring 2013 with a touch of sequins and the quintessential fedora. Watch our Fab Flash now to see all the looks right from the runway!
Rachel Roy's gorgeous Spring 2013 collection was full of pretty prints and bold pops of color, and Rachel herself is an expert at wearing both. We caught up with the designer to get her advice on mixing prints, loading up on arm candy, and achieving a laid-back, effortless cool — and her tips are ideal for anyone that's fearful of a "more is more" sartorial attitude. Rachel also spoke about her young daughters, saying that her 4-year old Tallulah "might take over the business one day." See our adorable (and informative) interview with Rachel in today's Fab Flash.
Michael Kors aims to please, and with Spring 2013, we're positive you'll be a happy camper. We think front-row starlets Camilla Belle, Katharine McPhee, and Marisa Tomei would agree, too. Kors took a sporty-meets-classic approach, and with it, a bevy of mod prints attached to versatile silhouettes came marching out. It's all about bold primary colors, a healthy dose of stripes, clean lines, and more wearable (read: covetable) pieces than you'll know what to do with. Be sure to stick around for the final set of runway looks, as gorgeous black gowns (some with even sexier bodice cutouts) make a welcome appearance. It's definitely worth the watch.
To say it has been a whirlwind of a month would be an understatement for Olympic runner Allyson Felix. Nevertheless, she told us NYFW is "so much fun to come to." Fresh off her gold-medal winning streak in London, the lightning-fast beauty, clad in head-to-toe red, shared what it's been like to attend shows, why she went for this particularly bold look, and how she actually "stumbled" into running. See all this, plus her plans for Rio, when you watch right here.
