FNO: The Show

|
By Roberta Correia · September 8, 2010

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.

By Roberta Correia · June 16, 2009

OMG, OMG, OMG...and I never use that acronym. But I have no other words to describe last night's Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. 

Fashionistas, models, celebrities, reality stars, socialites and of course designers galore. The CFDA's is probably my favorite night in fashion, it's not as costumey (pun intended) as the MET Ball and much cooler than the Oscars, and of course we are all about the cool kids. 

Take a look at the complete list of last night's winners below - including Alexander Wang whose Gap CFDA collection hits stores today (already ordered the whole thing online!)...and after the jump see who wore what last night!
