As if a surprise runway walk from Rita Ora (accompanied by a seriously dope Spring 2014 collection that's both nostalgic and forward-thinking) wasn't enough, DKNY threw itself a GIGANTIC 25th birthday party last night in New York's Financial District punctuated by a high octane performance from the next face of the brand herself. The crowd itself was star-studded with a huge range of fashion fans, from Hailee Steinfeld to John Legend and his hilarious model boo Chrissy Teigen to Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis. But the stage ALSO boasted its fair share of famous faces as Iggy Azalea, Melanie Fiona, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg all made surprise guest performance appearances.

Looks from Monique Lhuillier's Spring 2014 show.

The front row at Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2014 show was teeming with lovely Hollywood ladies (Emmy Rossum, Jena Malone, Rose McGowan) in search of their next red carpet gown. The elegant dresses almost appeared to float down the runway, leaving tangerine, coral, and fuchsia-tinted trains gliding gracefully in their wake. Sounds like a dream, right? Well be that as it may, there’s no time for sleep during New York Fashion Week! Gotta keep the crowds on their Manolo Blahnik-covered toes! Which is exactly why Javier Peral, the man behind the soundtrack for Lhuillier’s Spring 2014 show, opted to go sullen and sulking with the mood of the tunes, instead of light and airy like the collection itself. To hear more about the music from Javier himself and peep the edgy soundtrack behind the delicate dresses, stay with us after the jump!

It may've been the weekend, but that certainly didn't stop celebrities from coming out to New York Fashion Week to see what their fave designers have planned for Spring 2014. Tons of famous faces flocked to various locations around NYC to see what the likes of Charlotte Ronson, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, Y-3, Hood by Air, and Alexander Wang have been working on.

Rita Ora

Happy 25th birthday, DKNY! Now you can rent an SUV on your own! With the advent of 2014 (by way of this Spring/Summer-showing New York Fashion Week), Donna Karan's youth-oriented diffusion line embarks on its 25th year of existence since its launch in 1989. Accordingly, the major anniversary show employed its own major surprise: a closing runway walk from forthcoming campaign face and all-around cutie patootie pop star Rita Ora. Sure, celebs sit front row for shows all the time (*achem* was anyone else FLIPPING out about seeing Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis??), and sure, we already knew that Rita and DK were linked, but does that mean we expected this kind of catwalk cameo? Certainly not.

Serious question: Do we love Peter Som's Spring 2014 line, or do we LOVE Peter Som's Spring 2014 line? I have never been more excited to mix prints in my LIFE, y'all. Solange, girl, you better watch your closet—I'm comin' for ya! Obvi, we ball on a budget over here, so *fingers crossed* we'll be snagging our Som from his newly-announced Kohl's collab collection next year instead of fresh off the runway. But that's OK! There ain't no shame in the high-end accessible game. And even though I may never have the chance to personally strut my stuff at New York Fashion Week (I'm 5'3" on a good day), I plan on making the sidewalk my catwalk when I fill my headphones with all the beachy-keen songs from Som's show, courtesy of sound stylist Javier Peral. Javier was in charge of the soundtrack behind the big-city surfer-girl line and once again, he was kind enough to share the goods with all of us. Check out Peral's perspective on the vibe of the collection and snag the full playlist from Peter Som's Spring 2014 presentation after the jump!

Here ye, here ye! Gather 'round, fair BARBZ, for your queen, Nicki Minaj, has arrived on the New York Fashion Week scene, and she has a *very* important declaration for all her loyal subjects: Fear not the '90s steez! Bring forth the acid wash jeans! The crop-tops! The logo-emblazed bling! For they are back with a vengeance and her Minajesty doth approve.

After taking a seat on the front-row throne at Herve Leger's Spring show earlier in the day, Nicki held court at Alexander Wang's after-party last night and the woman ruled the night in a can't-be-missed Chanel-plated chain necklace. #LOGOMANIA Minaj, who was a surprise performer at the Pier 17 blow-out, also wore a black, long-sleeved crop-top by Wang himself, her own high-waisted, slashed-up jeans and some seriously sick leopard-print calf hair and suede ankle boots by Giuseppe Zanotti. Minaj was the perfect embodiment of emerging trends for the Spring 2014 season—Wang debuted his highly-anticipated collection on Saturday and showed '90s street-revival with prominent logo-wear and plenty of pieces that would make Cher Horowitz proud.

On the second day of New York Fashion Week, Yeezus rose from within the tents to actually spend everything on Alexander Wang. He was joined by music's most-stylish, including Miguel, Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss, Solange and Courtney Love, to name a few. And Wang did not disappoint his star-studded audience (or his pajama-clad loyalists watching the live stream from home, eating a cheeseburger and not feeling bad about it).

When fashion met music, it was love at first sight. They've been together a long time now, those two. But they're not the kind of perfect pairing that grinds your gears with handsy PDA or syrupy pet names or the constant use of "we." They're more like Beyonce and Jay Z (*bows down*). Music and fashion are complimentary—they amplify the other's best qualities and make really great surprise guests at each other's shows. 'Cause fashion's a rider, and music's a roller. Put them together, how they gon' stop both of 'em? Basically what I'm trying to say is, fashion and music are like the '03 Bonnie and Clyde.

But someone's got to manage their two giant egos, and that's where Javier Peral comes in. Peral is a sound stylist. He creates soundtracks for fashion shows and is a major part of why people whip out their wallets so quickly after the lights go up. Because HELLO, the urge to spend inordinate amounts of money on a leather bustier clearly isn't propelled by silence. Javier, who's been on the scene since the early 1990s, is one of the first people that gets to see a designer's finished collection, which doesn't make us jealous at all. (Yes it does.) After consulting with a particular designer about their collection's vibe and vision, he creates a series of songs that serves to enhance the colors, textures, mood and movements. He's worked with all of the most major names in high-end fashion and this year, he's going to be sharing some of his soundtracks with us! You may never have to choose between Shazam and Instagram again. First up: Jason Wu after the jump!

If you don't know Adam Selman's name by now, you better start memorizing it. We don't mean to sound bossy, but the former Britney Spears and Michael Jackson costume designer is seriously making his mark in the fashion world. Not only did he co-design Rihanna's spring and fall River Island collections this year and create killer custom pieces for her Diamonds World Tour (that red, yellow and black bustier number? #dead), but he also designed Ri's GORGE slinky white 2012 VMA gown and those unforgettable Victoria's Secret on-stage ensembles. This week, Adam decided to take his stellar design skills a step further and debut his first ever solo collection at NYFW (!!!). Of course we had to stop by and check out the goods firsthand, and, lucky for us, Adam even chatted with us about his fashion week debut.

It’s no secret that we’ve been stalking Ariana Grande’s style for a while now. But these days she’s everywhere and with each new appearance comes yet another amazing vintage-looking floral frock. A few years ago, the former Victorious star told us at the time that she loved to wear ‘50s-inspired designs on stage (“poufy skirts, big bows … very fun, girly and young”), and now at the height of her pop star hysteria, it seems like she’s sticking with what and WHO she knows! Kenley Collins, a Project Runway alum with a major thing for patterns and prints, is the designer behind a ton of the dresses that have helped shape Grande’s classically beautiful style. Obviously, we were dying to get the deets on the lady behind the look, and Kenley was kind enough to fill us in! (P.S. Keep an eye out for more to Ariana x Kenley to come! Collins' new collection, The Marilyn, rolls out on November 2nd and will be available through her website.)

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
