Can’t make it to NYC for Fashion Week? Don’t worry, OK!’s got you covered! We’ll be hitting up all the big shows and reporting back right here, every day, as soon as we tear our eyes off the runway! Yesterday we had the pleasure of watching Jill Stuart‘s new fall collection hit the runway at the NYC Public Library.
SHOW: Jill Stuart
WHEN: Feb. 15
WHO: Michelle Trachtenberg, AnnaLynne McCord, Jessica Szohr, Mena Suvari, One Tree Hill‘s Shantel VanSanten, Real Housewives Kelly Bensimon and Ramona Singer, The City‘s Roxy Olin, and America’s Next Top Model‘s Nigel Barker and Jay Alexander.
FASHION: For her Fall/Winter 2010 collection, Jill Stuart took the trend for military-inspired clothes and ran with it, to the extent that some of her models looked like they were actually battle-ready. Other themes were tweeds, tartans and very heavy cable-knits, and several of the models where wearing whimsical oversized bowler hats that looked like they had been designed for Alice In Wonderland movie. Is the Johnny Depp flick, due out this summer, set to start some fashion trends?
BEAUTY: Heavy, dark eye makeup.
COLOR/OVERHEAD: This show’s always a fun one, but this season it was verging on rowdiness! The fashion-crazy celebs were chatting so enthusiastically about their outfits (sample quote from one of the girls inquiring about another’s dress, “Did the boobies hurt?”) that show organizers had to hush Michelle Trachtenberg and Jessica Szohr before the show started. A true Fashion Week moment came about two minutes into the show when the speakers unexpectedly cut out leaving the models footsteps echoing around the room, so the amassed ranks of photographers filled in by singing “LA LA LA LA LA LA” in unison.
