Can’t make it to NYC for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week? Don’t worry, OK!’s got you covered! This morning we checked out the BCBG Max Azria runway show for a sneak peek at the designer’s spring collection and loved every minute!
WHEN: Feb. 10, 2011
WHO: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Katrina Bowden, Ashanti, Garcelle Beauvais, Kelly Rowland and Taraji P. Henson.
FASHION: In the show’s pamphlet Max Azria described the line as “a play on elongated proportions evokes a fresh sensibility and innate seduction.” The look was very loose and low-waisted. A lot of wrap dresses with sheer arms, tie-dyed tonal fabrics, navy, black, cobalt and cream were the template with a tomato red dresses, a purple monk dress and mustard thrown in. There were loose dresses over turtlenecks, layered ruffles and geometric shoulder cutouts.
BEAUTY: The models wore sleek straight tight low ponytails with their natural hair wrapped around the band. Neil Moodie for Bumble and Bumble did the hair. The make up by Charlotte Willer for Maybelline New York did the makeup, which was very minimalistic.
COLOR/OVERHEARD: JLo loves JLo! When asked who the most stylish person was backstage before the show, Jennifer Love Hewitt told OK! it was Jennifer Lopez! “She just always looks very glamorous!” Jennifer Love brought her boyfriend Alex Beh with her to the show. He had his arm wrapped around her during her interviews and didn’t leave her side. Kelly Rowland was the last of the celebrities to show up and took a seat near Ashanti. Music was funk electronica and included 16 Shades of Black and Blue by Fujiya & Miyagi, Ah, No by Sutja Gutierrez, Girls Like You by The Naked & Famous and Shiny Star by Colder.
