NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List Part II

NYFW1

Alexander Wang: Zoe Kravitz is a huge fan of Alexander Wang, so the question when looking at the collection was ‘What would Zoe wear?’ My choices were somewhat limited due to the amount of colour on display as Zoe loves to wear black, so I settled on this black strappy dress with a flared skirt. I hope she proves me wrong and selects something other than black from this collection.

Altuzarra: Allison Williams is always a goodie two-shoes on the red carpet. I would love to see her in this sexy, slightly undone look to spice up her red carpet game.

NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List

NYFW Day 1 (1)

ZAC Zac Posen: The second I saw this luxe ivory gown with a deep v-back and body-contouring seams, the first person to come to mind was Amber Heard. While I’m very intrigued about how the front looks, I know she would work that back even better than the model.

Honor: This clashing-print ensemble featuring a pointy-collared blouse and fitted skirt has only one destination – Solange Knowles’ closet.

Marchesa Fall 2013

Marchesa Fall 2013

The Marchesa Fall 2013 collection was even more grand and romantic than previous seasons.

Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman served up luxurious pieces many starlets will be clamouring for, especially with the Oscars around the corner – in fact, I’m sure some of the gowns are making their way to LA at this very moment.

The show opened with a bold red embroidered coat before swiftly moving on to tea-length dresses – some with sheer balloon sleeves – off-the shoulder gowns, and one-shoulder gowns with asymmetrical tiers, plus many satin gowns with tulle hems.

The romanticism was really captured with the slow movement of the models and the flowing trains of the last few looks. You couldn’t help but be entranced as the fuchsia strapless gown made its way around the runway.

Gold floral embroidery featured heavily within this collection; the detail up close was simply exquisite.

Marchesa’s range of bags extended once again this season. Larger bags with chain accents and envelope clutches featured in this collection, with Christian Louboutin providing the footwear.

Which ones can you picture on the red carpet on Oscar night?

Front Row: Jada Pinkett Smith, Louise Roe, Lake Bell, Olivia Palermo, Miley Cyrus and her mum

Michael Kors Fall 2013

Michael Kors Fall 2013

The Michael Kors Fall 2013 show served up luxe sportswear and a whole lot more.

On an eye-popping colour palette of electric-blue, saffron-yellow, orange and black, the designer served up looks for any occasion.

I loved the cheeky camo prints, the easy wearable separates, on-trend houndstooth print, slouchy leather pants, oversized blazers and coats, the luxe knitwear and the peplum pieces which return to the runway season after season.

My favourite pieces were the leather bustier with a crepe skirt and the knit peplum sweater and skirt.

The show closed with a succession of two-tone mullet dresses. The bejewelled one is one most likely to make it to the red carpet.

Front Row: Michael Douglas, Hilary Swank, Zoe Saldana, Jada Pinkett Smith, Paz Vega and Karolina Kurkova

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Gwyneth Paltrow; Jennifer Garner; Heidi Klum; Charlize Theron.

Favourites: Look 55, Look 9 and Look 19

The Blonds Fall 2013

The Blonds Fall 2013

The Blonds’ Fall 2013 show was presented on Tuesday night at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week.

As always, the attendees dressed to impress for the collection, which was heavily influenced by the movies ‘Psycho’ and ‘The Shining’.

Models took to the runway in blonde wigs wearing signature corsets. I loved the opening jewelled corset with feathers, but there were plenty more show stoppers to be had.

We saw a jewel-encrusted roped corset dress, a faux-chinchilla jumpsuit, a white-leather belt dress, and a pvc trench coat which looked like it was dripping with blood, as did a nude strapless dress. The fur strait jacket was also loved by their adoring crowd.

While they did present a few gowns, I think this collection is more likely to be seen on the stage than the red carpet.

Front Row: Johnny Weir and Carmen Electra

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra, Holly Madison and Katy Perry

Favourites: Feather corset and red jeweled corset
