FASHION: The show, though scaled back from previous seasons, was strong with well structured and tailored pieces and a main focus on functionality. From fanny packs, inflatable collars to oversized pockets that could fit everything one might own (with room to spare) were everywhere on the runway. With knits that were chunky and cozy to cropped jackets with asymmetrical hem lines, this collection will pack anyone’s wardrobe full of great separates perfect for layering on those cool fall nights out on the town.
BEAUTY: There were no sleek, shiny locks on the G-Star runway, rather models sported wavy textured hair which was sprayed a with a touch of gray for a grungy, gritty urban feel. Makeup was kept natural nude lip and cheekbones highlighted with a peachy color blush.
COLOR/OVERHEAD: Friendships form on the front rows at Fashion week. Rosario Dawson and English actress Gemma Arterton giggled in the front row during the show as they enjoyed the fashions on the catwalk in front of them.
"Some of those pieces I have been looking for since Demi Moore in Indecent Proposal," Rosario told reporters after the show ended of the sexy yet wearable looks G-Star featured on the runway.
For newly married couple Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, G-Star marked their first show ever at any Fashion Week!
"It's comfy stuff," Chris told OK! of the G-Star gear he had on.
He said he was amazed at all the hoopla at surrounding the shows, but was happy to share in the excitement with his wife!
Jared Leto just got off the plane from vacation in Mexico to attend the G-Star show, and was happy to support the brand.
"Excitement and energy is always great," he told OK!.
