For those of you who can’t make it out to NYC for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this year, OK!’s got you covered! Yesterday, we checked out Cynthia Rowley’s runway show, featuring spring looks for the uptown girl.
SHOW: Cynthia Rowley
WHEN: February 11, 2011
WHO: Lauren Bush, Julia Stiles, Nigel Barker, and Alan Cumming
FASHION: Cynthia’s uptown girls showed off a muted palette of moss, mustard, teal, grey and black. Silhouettes were a mix of slim pencil skirts and voluminous tunics, offering a range of textures, from slinky silks and lurex knits to rich velvets and sheared faux fur. Accessories were key and included big retro cats-eye sunglasses, long sheer gloves and satin with rabbit fur scarves. Proving she’s dressing her girls from head to toe, Cynthia also sent out models wearing pale-pink vintage-inspired silk lingerie to criss-cross the back of the stage.
BEAUTY: Smoky eyes and nude lips by Charlotte Willer for Maybelline New York complemented fly-away backcombed chignons adorned with geometric clips for an effortless just-out-bed vibe.
COLOR/OVERHEARD: Lauren Bush told OK! Cynthia’s show was her first fashion week event. Despite being a pal of the designer, Lauren broke the old rule of wearing one of the designer’s own creations to the show, instead sporting a blue tunic dress she designed herself. “I sourced this silk myself in Cambodia,” she told OK! Of her own ethically-sourced silk arm band detail. Keen to promote fashion with a social conscience, Lauren also carried a special-edition red FEED bag – out in time for Valentine’s Day – which she showed off to Julia Stiles who was seated next to her.
