Olivia Culpo Front Row @ NYFW Fall 2017

There seemed to be hardly a front row seat without Olivia Culpo’s name on it during New York Fashion Week—her respective designer looks from each show reflecting the wide variety of presentations she frequented.

Noon By Noor: Mannish vamp was the mood with her all-black ensemble at the Noon By Noor show on Thursday (February 9), where her sleek bun and glossy crimson lip took the look from standard to sultry.

Cushnie Et Ochs: Pants again were in play at the Cushnie et Ochs show on Friday (February 10), but the most I noticed of them was where the waistband peeked through the deep plunge of the vest that actually seemed strangely ill-fitting. It compromised the outfit, as sometimes a plunge is just too deep. She accessorized with a Lee Savage clutch.

Zimmermann: From menswear to mega-feminine, Olivia flipped the script at the Zimmermann show on Monday (February 13) with a look from the label’s Spring 2017 collection that served up ruffled, lacy romanticism with an innocently sultry finish. With the lace-up boots, you can see the ‘sexy pirate’ edge that was rife throughout that collection.

Philipp Plein: A quick-change for the Philipp Plein show on Monday took her to edgier sex appeal with the familiar show-off details of a cutout and slit-way-up-to-there skirt. Giuseppe Zanotti ankle-strap heels completed the look.

John Paul Ataker: After her revealing black Philipp Plein dress, this white ensemble at the John Paul Ataker show on Tuesday (February 14) was a crisp breath of fresh air. Boldness was achieved through the bell sleeves and the mesh paneling throughout the pants for a look that fused both girly and sporty together.

Zac Posen: Charm reigned supreme for her next look on February 14 at the Zac Posen exhibition, where a ladylike silhouette melded with a vintage print for a dress that put the retro in red.

Marchesa: Romance won out for her final outing of New York Fashion Week, where she wore the feminine frill of this dainty white Marchesa frock in perfect form with long, beautiful waves, hair jewelry, and a fuchsia lip. A black clutch and black strappy heels ensured the effect didn’t become overly sweet.

Ending on a high note, her Marchesa look was a memorable one for me as it didn’t smack of try-hard and rightfully walk the line between sophisticated and sassy.

    The first row has my favorites.

    I love the Cushnie et Ochs outfit from h2t. And she manages to make the Zimmermann look work for her. I’m not too fond of the boots though.

    Also, I wish her makeup artist would take it easy sometimes. She often looks caked up :/

    I think that little Marchesa number is still coming across too sweet and sugary for her esp. with that hair and sparkly jewellery. Her well-executed John Paul Ataker look is clearly the best here for me.

      ..and her Zac Posen is lovely, but the print is an instant deja vu – Ali Larter did it at the People’s Choice Awards.

    The Zac Posen and the Noor by Noor being my favourites with the Zimmerman the only outfit that I don’t really like.

    She’s gorgeous and she pulls of every look except the Zimmerman in my opinion.

    • Catherine Kallon February 20, 2017 at 17:12 #

      That was my least favourite too.

      Agree completely. She looks great in all of them except that Zimmerman but TBH I don’t know who could really make that look work – I am partial to her in Zac Posen and Marchesa.
