Can’t make it to NYC for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week? Don’t worry, OK!’s got you covered! Today we checked out Max Azria‘s runway show for a sneak peek at the designer’s collection and loved every minute of it!
SHOW: Max Azria
WHEN: February 13, 2011
WHO: Sophia Bush, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Rose McGowan, Katrina Bowden, Leigh Lezark, Alexa Ray Joel, Tika Sumpter and Lynn Collins
FASHION: “Tailored sophistication meets urban ease” for Maz Azria’s fall 2011 collection. Models styled looks that explored a balance of “femininity and function” as well as “elegant and sporty.” Earth tones were paired with shades of bright orange and teal with menswear fabrics paired with delicate silk georgette! The show-stopping look was black wool coat paired with a black silk chiffon beaded gown!
BEAUTY: Neil Moodie for Bumble and Bumble styled the hair in tight, long ponytails. Some models sported short, straight hair slicked back that was paired perfectly with the elegant, yet sporty look. Charlotte Willer for Maybelline New York styled the makeup with a cat-like smokey eye and neutral lips. Cheekbones were also emphasized and all models wore charcoal leather chokers.
COLOR/ OVERHEARD: The playlist on the runway included “For Yves” by Jonas Bering, “Beast in Peace” by Bear in Heaven and “Amy Was a Player” by Fritz Kalkbrenner.
Jennifer was very animated in the front row reacting to each piece she loved, but Sophia and Rose sat quietly watching each model walk by. Sophia did snap a photo of one design she really loved, which appeared to be the brown cavalry twill parka, black tunic sweater and leather pant.
Sophia told reporters that NYC is her temporary Valentine this year!
“Well, my boyfriend is editing the episode of the show that he just directed in L.A. and I’m here for fashion week, so NYC is my Valentine on the day!” she explained of her Valentine plans. “My personal plans will be kept private and happening at the end of the week.”
