Falguni & Shane Peacock isn't necessarily a household name (yet!), but if you're a purveyor of these here MTV Style pages, you have DEFINITELY seen the eye-buggingly major designs of this husband-and-wife design duo. These two reeeeally know how to entertain with an article of clothing, which makes them a natural red carpet go-to for fashion risk-takers and pretty young thangs like Demi Lovato, Jessie J, and Kat Graham. The couple is notorious for attention-demanding ensembles and experimenting from season to season with different textures, prints, and embellishments, but the one thing that remains constant is the fact that these two know how to bring the DRAMA to New York Fashion Week.

Marc By Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 collection.

After Marc Jacobs took us on a journey to the days of the mods with his namesake show last night, we were waiting not-so-patiently for the reveal of Marc by Marc Jacobs spring 2013 at New York Fashion Week today. The collection always produces some of the most covetable pieces of the season, and is usually a slightly more whimsical and wearable take on the Marc Jacobs collection show. This season was no different--we saw echoes of Marc's stripes and bold patterns, but everything from the shapes, to the colors, to the textures was youthful and fun in the way his previous night's show was grown up and clean. The stripes, which we saw on suits and trenches at Marc Jacobs, were reinvented in slightly softer tones for Marc by Marc, and put on dresses and men's button downs. It was great. But that's not the most important thing we have to discuss here, oh no. We need to talk about scarves.

Vera Wang Spring 2013

First off, whoa. When we hear the name "Vera Wang," we immediately think of long, flowy pieces mostly, um, of the wedding gown variety. We can't help it! Vera is just incredibly talented at creating the perfect dress silhouette, and when it comes to the big day, she SHINES. We peeped her spring 2012 NYFW collection today, and, man, we were HELLA surprised. We were expecting dreamy dresses and floral frocks, but instead we were hit with lots of—gasp—shorts. Now, don't get us wrong—there were still quite a few dresses in the mix, but we couldn't get over these '90s-sportwear-meets-Victorian-lady ensembles. Most of Vera Wang's looks were comprised of head-to-toe monochrome color, and we are SO into that. In the first look, she revamped a typical tuxedo jacket into high-neck, button-up peplum top, which she paired with skin-tight shorts that hit just above the knee. The entire ensemble was a glowing cobalt and teal brocade print that we LOVE, and the messy updo made the overall look less uptight.

Dresses at the Alice + Olivia Spring 2013 presentation.

Sparkles, dramatic lines, and colored eyeliner were all in full effect at the Alice + Olivia Spring 2013 presentation at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and all in the best way. Also in present in great quantities were some of our favorite celebs, many of whom we have seen on the red carpet in the brand before. As was the case with Marc Jacobs' show for his namesake line last night, the first thing we thought when we stepped into the presentation yesterday was 'retro.' With dramatic, floor skimming a-line gowns; fluttery chiffon; and short, structured dresses, all straight out of a more modern Mad Men. All cinched waists and classic feminine shapes, the collection was every stars dream, with dresses that would look as incredible on the red carpet as they do in the designer's showroom. While the collection as a whole was quite prim, it was nowhere near being stuffy--the pieces maintained that undeniable sexiness that a perfectly fitted and constructed garment lends to a woman, bringing out the natural curves of her body without overpowering. The collection also avoided the trap of being too cute, while still being, well, cute. There were no little girl frills or ruffles here, and each dress was very clearly made for a woman, and wasn't just a big version of a whimsical princesses look (yuck). The makeup was also a highlight, where models wore thick cat eyes in electric blue, pure white and black of course. We totally want to try our hand at a bright blue cat eye sometime, we just need to figure out the right occasion. This makeup look is also giving us some ideas about what we want to try for the holidays. Gold cat eye, anyone? Yes please.

J.Crew

Can you believe it's only been a year now that fashion-forward retail giant J.Crew has been showing at New York Fashion Week? Yes, it's only been 365 days (well, roughly) since the Jenna Lyons/Mickey Drexler match-up made its Lincoln Center debut. (And though J.Crew has shown exclusively via presentation and not runway show thus far, that hasn't stopped MEGASTARS like Miss Beyonce Knowles) from showing support. And judging from the brand's marked evolution of the collections from season to season while still keeping true to the J.Crew signatures (namely excellent tailoring and a massive sucker punch of color), it's not hard to see why.

Sammi Sweetheart

These days it seems like ALL the Jersey Shore girls have been inching their way into the fashion world—JWOWW launched her Filthy Couture line back in 2010, Snooki has been KILLIN' it in the accessories department (sunglasses, flip-flops, slippers—you name it!), and now Sammi is finally making her stylish debut. The Jersey Shore girl launched her own fitness line (called The Sammi Sweetheart Collection) in conjunction with SXE Fitness at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and we were there to watch it all go down from the front row.

Alexa Chung, Abigail Breslin and Holland Roden

Reporting from day five of Fashion Week means empty red bull cans, numb fingers clacking on keyboards and strained eyes from slaving away at our computers (can a girl get some Visine please?), but we're still going strong because we love ourselves some celeb sightings, and trust us, there have been some good ones. Notably we spotted British It Girl Alexa Chung, Abigail Breslin and Teen Wolf star (and host of our 2012 VMA Red Carpet Report last week) Holland Roden, and we're just getting started.

Low slung skirts were a departure from higher, cinched waitslines of past seasons.

While we want to save the trend reporting for later in the week, there is one thing that we just have to mention: Spring 2013 is all about classic, retro shapes. That could be said for every season, as everything old is new again with each collection, there are no new trends, and so on and so forth, but there really is a distinctly time warp vibe to many of the shows that we've been to, and Marc Jacobs was no exception. His show at the armory opened with a look that was without a doubt an ode to Twiggy--a coltish blonde model with her hair pulled back, bangs pushed forward in a faux-bob, wearing an oversize white t-shirt with a black bar design (a la Black Flag) over what appear to be a pair of black bikini underwear. It's pure mod simplicity, playing the casual, so-basic-it's-high-art ease of the t-shirt alongside the bare youth of the model's legs. What followed from there were a series of striped looks that appeared straight out of London or New York in the 1960's: urbane, practical, but not without a distinct sense of fun and adventure. Boxy trench coats and suits that were just a little left of classic dominated the early part of the show in shades of black, nude, slate, with the a pop of leopard print breaking up the uniformity here and there. Models wore the skirts much lower than we've been seeing the past few seasons, with exposed hips peeking between skirts and blazers, which were worn sans shirt underneath. With clean, slim, and straight silhouettes that reminded us of the costumes that Mia Farrow wore as the title character in Roman Polanski's Rosemary's baby, suit jackets were certainly not the sexy menswear inspired looks we've been seeing on red carpets (remember Taylor Swift and Kat Graham at the VMAs?). Skirts ranged from pencil to a-line, but fell below the knees. Where's the whimsey, you ask? A skirt paired with a cropped sweatshirt emblazoned with a black and white screen print of Mickey Mouse reminded us of Azealia Banks' "212" look, and was a reason to smile amid a sea of serious fashion.

Put your hands together, guys! The newly engaged Avril Lavigne presented her SECOND Abbey Dawn New York Fashion Week show last night. *incites early-morning ovation* That's right, y'all. With this sophomore show under her belt, Abbey Dawn is no one-time Fashion Week flash in the pan. And apparently, neither is her friend and model Kylie Jenner who opened and closed the show - her second of the WEEK!

Pamela Love NYFW

Jewelry designer Pamela Love isn't one to follow the crowd, which is why we've always loved her. Unlike last season's steampunk jewelry presentation, Pamela decided to something a little more daring for this NYFW show—opening up a pop-up tattoo shop to get her designs permanently inked on your skin. She and her hubby (illustrator Matthew Jameson Nelson Love) created custom flash-sheets from which people can choose their designs. The tattoos are then applied by artists Minka Sicklinger and Patrick “Fish” King to members of the fash industry who are willing to go the extra mile in between Lincoln Center shows. So, why did she opt for something so permanent instead of her usual presentation? "Tattoos and jewelry are very similar, they are both decorative adornments for the body that often have deep meaning to the individual," Pamela said in a press release. "Jewelry is very personal, it is something that you can wear every day and after a while the pieces you wear most feel like they’ve become a part of you. Getting a tattoo is a logical extension of that idea. It’s something you can carry with you forever."

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