The three main colors of Anna Sui's A/W 2013 collection.

What is it about the 60's, and mod in particular, that has, and always will have, everyone all shook up. Is it the snappy hemlines--short but still girlish and innocent--or the clean lines? Or is it the way that the shapes, while singular and recognizable, lend themselves to basically any fabric? Or is it that slight, sweet whiff of rebellion that it's impossible not to get off of any garment modeled after the turbulent, swinging 60's? Either way, this has been yet another season where countless designers were inspired by mod, and Anna Sui was no different. Her show opened on the now-signature bob of Karlie Kloss, standing at the end of the runway with with a number of other models. They looked more like they were about to start singing than to walk down the runway, and so it wasn't really too much of a surprise when they began to sway back and forth with a go-go shimmy, like a silent, incredibly well dressed girl group. Karlie opened the show with a knowing, girlish smirk in one of most luxurious suits we have seen this season. In colors ranging from red to bright pink, bronze and orange, Karlie's opening look was like a school uniform gone mad, a small tie done in bright red sequins and a rounded collar. This collection was really about color and about fabric, showing silks, wools, and velvets in a range of warm jewel tones perfect for the chilliest days of fall. There were three main color palettes--red, blue, and green--and Sui kept each look within one of those palettes. This was no matchy-matchy monotone and there was no color blocking in sight. Take notes, because this wasn't just at Anna Sui: one of the biggest lessons we're taking from the shows is that there's nothing more glamorous than a play on pattern, and the brighter the better.

Kat Graham, A$AP Rocky, Elizabeth Olsen

As Fashion Weeks go, they tend to save the best for last. Best shows, best looks, and the best celebs to take it all in. We're glad to see that we've hit the last day of Fall 2013 on a high note, where the likes of Kat Graham, A$AP Rocky and Elizabeth Olsen sat front row. Kat Graham was impossible to miss sporting new blonde hair and wearing a bold, primary-color bodycon dress at the Jeremy Scott runway show. She also sat next to an energized A$AP Rocky, who decided to catch a few shows after making his runway model debut at Hood By Air a few days earlier, wearing head to toe black. We have to say we've been disappointed we haven't seen more of Elizabeth Olsen this Fashion Week, vanishing after she appeared at the Prabal Gurung for Target collaboration. But the littlest Olsen delivered, appearing at Proenza Schouler in almost the same color palette as the current collection, wearing a structured blue jacket and black leather pants. Take a look at all of the celebs at New York Fashion Week after the jump!

Rihanna Navy, clear your Saturday plans! Today we found out that RiRi will debut her River Island collection at London Fashion Week this weekend. Eeee! The best part, though, is that we can all watch it from the comfort of our own home—River Island will be livestreaming the ENTIRE. SHOW. on their Facebook page starting at 3:30 PM EST. Now, we've already gotten a tiny taste of the collection thanks to her behind-the-scenes video and campaign shoot (above), but we're still SO STOKED at what we'll end up seeing on the runway.

Jeremy Scott's Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection.

You know how poltergeists haunt teens because they're attracted to the youth's SUPERCHARGED angst-laden energy? Well, Jeremy Scott was similarly drawn to the interaction betwixt ghouls and hormones if his monster-mashed up collection for AW 2013 gives any indication. There were ectoplasmic spatters, exposed brains and veiny, exploding eyeballs decorating sweaters that were complemented by Jack Skellington from A Nightmare Before Christmas-esque trousers and matching lace-up boots set to Beastie Boys' rambunctious "GIRLS." The scowling (yet ever lovely) Cara Delevigne marched out in creeper-soled sneaker-boots with a pointy Lydia Deetz up-do and a sweater featuring a wart-riddled, teeth-baring visage. There was also a healthy dose of amped-up, psychedelic punk-rock-meets-ska motifs by way of a neon two-tone, checkered boot under a floaty, fractal-ish skirt anchored by a black, scoop-neck jumper emblazoned with the graffiti'd words: TOO WEIRD TO LIVE. Word.

Proenza Schouler Fall 2013

Every season when Proenza Schouler's show rolls around, we always get pumped to see Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's astounding asymmetrical pieces, and this year was no different. They decided to do the total opposite to the bold and bright pieces they showed for spring 2013 by completely sucking ALL the color out of their fall 2013 line. The models were sent down the runway in super unsaturated hues of light blue, mint green and pink tossed in with tons of crisp white and solid black. We loved how they combined a '60s silhouette of broad, round-shouldered jackets with futuristic fabrics. Some of our favorite looks from the collection included a new take on the traditional wrap dress, which left part of the shoulder peeking through the top of the frock.

Asher Levine fall 2013

Oooh, Asher Levine. Every season we look forward to seeing the 24-year-old designer's collection for a multitude of reasons: 1.) He has created ensembles for some of our most favorite celebs (think Rita Ora and Lady Gaga); 2.) He always busts out the most badass, goth-meets-classic-tailored-menswear looks; and 3.) He's ALL about the music. He said this season was inspired by composer and producer Jim Steinman (who created hits like "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)") mixed with a dark obsession of bats and skulls. For the show, DJ Mess Kid took these songs and created his own, one-of-a-kind soundtrack for the models to walk to (which you can hear a sample of here), but the coolest part of his collection were the parts you couldn't see.

Ahhh, New York Fashion Week. We're so close to the end. From Rebecca Minkoff to Marc by Marc, we've loved every minute of you, but we think the honeymoon period this season is juuuust about over and it's getting to that point in our relationship when things get a little difficult. It's totally fine and normal and expected with every relationship, and rest assured, we'll be giddy with excitement come your return in September, but for now, we've rounded up a few of the most difficult (difficult for mobility, difficult to fathom, difficult to see yourself realistically wearing, etc.) outfits from your offerings this week in honor of these turbulent times.

SPATIALLY DIFFICULT

Thom Browne, Chromat

This gray-blue patchwork coat number from Thom Browne and this rectangular white cage by Chromat (the same line behind Beyonce's Super Bowl backup dancers' outfits!!) are pretty equal in their spatial difficulty. For the record, we here at MTV Style LOVE both of these labels, but these particular pieces give us more "art piece" vibes than "ready to wear." Both have strong shoulders exaggerated to the point of turning the entire garment into a polygon. The Thom Browne is probably more difficult to get through certain doorways (wider, less pliable through its width), the Chromat we imagine as difficult to sit in comfortably.

Willow Smith at Narciso Rodriguez and Michael Kors.

Move over Tavi, because there's a new fashion wunderkind in town! Ok so maybe nobody's competing here, but Willow Smith is definitely stepping up her already A+ fashion game. The 12 year old singer/actress is attending her first ever New York Fashion Week with mother Jada Pinkett-Smith this week, popping up at the Narciso Rodriguez and Michael Kors at Lincoln Center. We're actually surprised that this is Willow's first NYFW, given her amazing style (and not just for a tween) and her fashion blog, but better not-late-at-all than never. If this is the style Willow is rolling into shows with at 12, can you IMAGINE what it's going to be like when she's 16? 18? 21? We'll all be bowing at her feet, if we aren't confined to walkers by then, that is. For her first appearance, Willow wore a baby lamb track jacket, illustrated tee, black skinny sweatpants, combat boots, and an electric neon satchel. She gave just the right amount of petulant for someone her age, sassing the camera with a cotton candy pink pout. She switched it up at Michael Kors, trading her almost-all-black look for a classic white moto jacket with gold studs, studded boots, cropped leather pants, and an AMAZING gold top with conical spikes coming out of the fabric (a la Florence Welch at the Grammys). She paired this look with a white satchel and an Eye of Providence necklace. Killer. Is it weird that we're totally taking outfit notes from a 12 year old? but do you really think this girl went to the shows without nail art? Come on! Check out Willow's fashion week mani after the jump!

Shateria Moragne-El

You might know Shateria Moragne-el from her work as a talented stylist. Or even perhaps as Rick Ross's rumored main lady. But you should know that Shateria has translated her eye for style into a banner transition to design. Her line, FrontRow, just presented and celebrated its Fall 2013 collection, fittingly with a star-studded front row. The Mastermind Rozay attended (who BTW was clad in a custom FrontRow peacoat with a croc lapel) as did Waka Flocka Flame. After a parade of covetable and UNDOUBTEDLY expensive ensembles dripping in leather and plushy furs, we actually got a chance to chat with Shateria about her creations!

Here's what you can expect with The Blonds: A) that the show will ALWAYS be LATE. B) that it won't matter a WHIT because the comings and goings of the SPECTACULARLY glamorous audience will be ceaselessly captivating. And finally, C) that the over-the-top offerings of tow-haired twosome Phillipe and David will rigorously follow a theme. Debbie Harry was there. So was Patrick MacDonald. Less expected was Trina. She was lovely.

It seems that The Blonds were in an Old Hollywood mood. Not in the cascading curls, soft lighting, bias-cut charmeuse evening gowns sort of way, mind you. More slasher-flick villains by way of Hitchcock and Kubrick. A printed polyurethane corset and skirt featured Jack's grinning mug peering through the splintered door from The Shining. Just as Janet Leigh's screaming visage was step-and-repeated for the torso of another look. There were teeny, glinting, acrylic knives dangling as jewelry and printed onto a kicky '50s housewife dress as well as skintight, flesh colored bustier gowns anointed with angry red slashes throughout. Definitely expect a follow-up post on the nail art because they were as outrageous and gore-adoring as the rest of it.

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