I'm guessing I wasn't the only one glued to cbs.com (and Andre Leon Talley's incessant babbling) last night circa 7pm was I? Fashion's Night Out is still a couple of days away but last night's Fashion's Night Out fashion show really got us in the NYFW/FNO mood. The absurdly over the top / dramatic/ mega spectacle was tauted the "biggest fashion show of all time" and it didn't disappoint. Gisele, Alessandra, Adriana, Karolina, Natalia, Coco, Chanel, Dree, Naomi etc, etc...basically every working model out there got off that double decker bus to strut her stuff on the circular runway.
What followed was an opulent and fabulous collection of every awe inspiring look from the FW2010 runways. Hoping to inspire a lot of FNO shopping Vogue editors and stylists Tabitha Simmons and Edward Enninful put together a showcase of the season's top trends according to Vogue. The show worked in 9 themes, in between the Opening Act and Grand Finale were Fifties Flair, Tartan Twist, Pure At Heart, Weekend Wrap-Up, Rock Chic, Go Global and Jazz Age Cool.
PS - I've settled on nomadic chic for my fall look - appropriate I think.
S & B & well I guess Little J, continue showing off their high fashion know how by sitting ring side at the hottest couture shows in Paris. Les Gossip Girls and Jessica Alba touched down at the Chanel show yesterday, showing off very different, yet all very covetable, Chanel looks (obv).
Blake Lively continues her adorable French tour in a very bohemian Chanel resort dress. Isn't it fabulous? Don't you just want to wear that dress to your next Haute Couture fashion show? Or every day? And it's not too tight nor too short, it's just right! Has she finally found her inner Goldilocks?
On to Jess Alba, who also did her best to go have us all going "awwww" but didn't quite do it for me. The dress is great no question, but the choice of footwear is just not working for me. Clearly it's meant to contrast with the frock's peasant girl thing, but the peep toe weaved booties just make it look mismatched and weird. Am I wron?
Far from awwwww was apparent bad girl Leighton Meester. B was all sorts of rocker chic in some form of long sleeved black leather number which just has me thinking "ugh that looks hot" - no I don't mean sexy, I mean warm as in the fires of Mordor. Is it 100 degrees where you guys are? Because it's 100 degrees here and I just, blurgh can't even look at those long sleeves without feeling suffocated.
My vote is clearly with Blake Lively. I can't believe I'm saying this but she actually looks sweet and angelic!! What's going on with the world??
Tonight's Emmy's brought lots of glitz and glamour to the red carpet. What I love about the TV crowd is that they usually go old school with their glam and there are fewer dont's than at most shows. One-shouldered gowns, full skirts and 1920's inspirations (including Art-Deco for the lovely Mrs. Draper) were the big winners of the night...Check out a few...
