Whitney Eve Fall 2012

Whitney Eve's first solo New York Fashion Week runway show (prior events have been presentations and joints shows in Miami or in L.A.) for Fall/Winter 2012 was admirable for its restraint. Inspired by an antique kaleidoscope found in her grandmother's house, Whitney Port unveiled tailored angles and jewel tones and at no point threatened to allow her collection to fragment into scattered, disparate stories. Set to the backdrop of Beyoncé's "Run The World? (Girls)," M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls," Robyn's "Fembot," and The Big Pink's "Dominos," there were sequins, dainty peplum blouses, pretty bubble prints, fluttery blouses, cocktail dresses with geometric beading, and a cannily cut and breezy-to-wear suit.

We caught up with the flaxen-haired designer to talk about the iridescent nails (blue!), her inspiration, and some of her favorite pieces.

Miguel Adrover Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week.

Don't be fooled by that "Ready-to-wear" modifier. New York Fashion Week isn't necessarily all megamall fare and boutique fodder. Some designers who show during this week of FASHUN do dabble in the avant garde. One such designer is Miguel Adrover who presented a collection of experimental fashions that play with volume, construction, and materials. There's even a giant life ring buoy attempting to pass as a necklace. That's not to say, by any means, that the entire collection is unwearable. Honestly, there's a Sphinx printed maxi in there that we totally have our eyes on. But we are scratching our heads a little about this leafy separates look pictured above. I mean, we're not horticulturists or anything, but we're pretty sure wearing living plants can't be a sustainable sartorial move. Also, this looks kiiiind of a little more like a disguise than an outfit. Which totally reminds us of the "world famous" Bushman of San Francisco. What do you guys think?

Jared Leto, Taylor Momsen, Adam Lambert

As New York Fashion Week begins to shut its sartorial doors (sadface), some celebs finally came out of the woodwork to make their long-overdue front row appearances—namely Jared Leto, Taylor Momsen, and Adam Lambert. All three fash-loving musicians stopped by shows in super fresh ensembles. Jared was spotted front and center at Rad By Rad Hourani in an interesting layered look. He sported a white tee under a blue sweater and denim vest paired with pinstripe brown trousers and a fluffy fur collar with a chain. He cleaned up his usually tousled 'do with lots of gel and even removed the chipped black nail polish that's always on his fingertips. *slow clap* We barely recognized Taylor Momsen when she stopped by the Marchesa show! She ditched her garter belt and nylons for a totally glam and gorge navy lace high-neck dress and nude pumps. She opted for a dark blue shadow instead of her typical kohl-rimmed color and swept her hair back into a soft chignon. We are absolutely loving Taylor's Fashion Week look, and, awww, she's even sporting seafoam green nails.

Lil' Kim attends The Blonds Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week show.

Last night's The Blonds show brought more than the rousing gem-encrusted numbers of David and Phillipe's newest collection. Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s Big Momma, Lil' Kim made a MAY-JOR appearance in the New York Fashion Week front row. Kimmy Blanco has been making quite the splash over the past few months with her mounting beef with Nicki Minaj and teasing out new music, so we wonder if this Blonds VIP treatment might forecast a Lil' Kim resurgence of EPIC glitter-drenched proportions. The fashion label is, after all, responsible for some of the most statement-making performance pieces, once even outfitting Kim's nemesis herself.

While the Queen Bee's front row togs were no 1999 VMAs mermaid pastie moment (it IS winter after all), she pulled up to the anticipated show looking decidedly regal. In a stark white body-con skirt, HEAVILY bedazzled nude top (with a very on-trend high neck, BTW), and glam-tastic maribou feather-laden shoulders, an ensemble from The Blonds' spring 2012 collection (that was specially altered for her), Kim looked every bit the living legend. Also, (ajakldfhaljkg!!!!) we sat DIRECTLY BEHIND HER. While the paps went bonkers and made some ungentlemanly remarks (among them the request for her to uncross her legs), Kim remained poised. And while some part of us longs for the Kim who would forgo the flesh colored bodysuit and just show up wearing a gang of gems on her torso (especially since "flesh colored" is the most subjective ish ever) we are totally ready for a new album and like this elegant look. So, what do you guys think? The Notorious K.I.M.'s white ensemble, love it or lump it?

anna sui nyfw fall 2012

Leave it to Anna Sui to throw some sunny happiness on these New York Fashion Week proceedings. Her fall 2012 show was all about bright color, vivid florals, owls (*hoot*), and the happiest models we've ever seen. From the opening model tableau to the parade of sprites with spring in their steps, the collection was all about schoolyard Kool-Aid fun times with a dash of '60s styling, some '70s inspiration, and enough argyle sassiness to start a pep rally (holla). Did we mention the show also included Sui's new handbag collaboration with Coach? And that she's designing bedding for spring? It was all so brash and jovial that we (and most of Twitter) decreed it the most delightful show at #NYFW.

Proenza Schouler

We'll always have a soft spot for Proenza Schouler. Not only are designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez quite possibly the cutest fashion duo in NYC, but they never fail to impress from season to season with fresh silhouettes and tons of texture. Their fall 2012 collection was filled with Asian-inspired boxy asymmetrical jackets, shiny metallics, and edgy chinoiserie. The show started off with oversized exposed zipper coats that resembled straitjackets paired with extra wide leg trousers and uncombed hair. Then, the collection transitioned into an almost futuristic schoolgirl look with boxy burgundy and navy sweaters over collared shirts paired with super-short wrap metallic miniskirts. Up next was a full-on leather overload with one head-to-toe hide ensemble after another. From jumpsuits to car coats to skirts to trousers—nothing was left unleatherfied. (We might've just made up that word.) Personally, we LOVED the patterned drop-waist dresses in chic plaid patterns because they are totally wearable and work as a statement piece on their own.

Marchesa Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week.

While I don't get many (read: any) excuses to wear Marchesa, there's such a stately female elegance that comes with the name and each forthcoming collection that keeps the label as my red carpet go-to in all my most opulent daydreams. The luxurious materials, breath-taking silhouettes, and the regalness of their signature filigree aesthetic over sheer panels is enough to have you back in Pampers imagining your life as a royalty, wearing layers of tulle to the breakfast table. Tonight's New York Fashion Week showing fell right in step with all of that, exhibiting markedly Marchesa finesse with winks at a few McQueen sensibilities.

We are in the final stretch of New York Fashion Week and are starting to feel the effects of nonstop, never-ending assaults of fashion fancy (*eyes popping out of head*). Oh, yeah, and celebs du jour! Who's been at the shows lately? TV cutie Shenae Grimes popped by the Emerson show wearing a midriff-baring cream cropped sweater, shiny black spandex, and what is perhaps the best blowout we've ever seen. Jessica Alba sashayed to the front row of the Michael Kors show in a body-hugging teal sheath dress with a black bodice harness, candy apple lips, and weather-appropriate black tights and heels. Amber Heard also attended the Kors show and chose a white knee-length dress with a wide black lace waistband. Not only was it refreshing to see her in something that wasn't floor length (girl loves to cover up), we were into the black strappy heels and au naturel makeup. To see even more stars' ensembles at Fashion Week, be sure to check out the photo gallery below!

Kimberly Ovitz Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week.

All right New York Fashion Week. We get it. It's becoming all too obvious that next fall/winter will be dominated by LOADS of furry hairy looks. And not just in your conventional coat shapes either. We'll get into it more at the end of the week with our trends wrap-ups, but this particular instance is begging to be singled out. The majority of Kimberly Ovitz's fall 2012 collection was long-lined, drapey urbanwear with sprinklings of sheers and knubbly sweaters, but a few looks were dressed with choice long-haired accessories. While most of them were slung crossbody, adding some interesting dimension to the outfit, this lucky model was outfitted with her own weave-adorned choker. We're not sure what the vision was behind this neck beard, but we do know that it's distracting from the rest of this gold lurex outfit. Also, if you add a Fu Manchu, this girl is a little bit channeling Confucius, AMIRITE??

Angela Simmons Snooki Fashion Week

In case you haven't noticed, Angela Simmons has been KILLIN' IT at Fashion Week, and yesterday was no different! We spotted her in the front row of the Bebe show, but then—gasp—we also noticed Snooki seated beside her. Yuussss. The Jersey Shore girls never miss their chance to be front and center at NYFW (see: Sammi Sweetheart last season), and Snooks even wore a Bebe dress at the Grammys this weekend. But, you guys, look! They match! Both front row girls sported an entirely azure blue, black, and maroon ensemble. 'Dorbs! Angela went glam in a multi-colored sequin jacket, black liquid leggings, suede blue clutch, and matching nails, while Snooki went more casual cool in an oversized azure blouse with black leggings and a giant birdcage bow headband. Her red-tinted strands match Angela's jacket for an overall so-well-coordinated couple ensemble we can barely handle it. Both gals opted for soft eye makeup, but Snooki went for a nude lip while Angela went for a dramatic deep burgundy pout. We love seeing these girls together, and, um, they BOTH have shiny waves for days. Want to see even more celebs at Fashion Week? Check out our full photo gallery below!

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