L.A.M.B. Fall 2011

Gwen Stefani presented her L.A.M.B. Fall 2011 collection which closed Fashion Week yesterday

Like Victoria Beckham, the L.A.M.B. collection was a showcase of Gwen’s personal style.

She presented 48 looks in a very unique fashion.

The show was split into 6 sections which their own soundtracks.

The ‘Solider Girl’ showcased khaki trench coasts, menswear inspired shirts and ties, camouflage floral print blouse and a houndstooth ruffle skirt.

The ‘Ragga Muffin Girls’ gave us navajo print chiffon dresses, halter bow blouses and menswear v neck sweaters.

The ‘London Girls’ wore 70s inspired leather motorcycle jackets, menswear blazers and plaid punker pants.

The ‘Buffalo Girls’ were just as edgy teaming patchwork sweaters with ties and oversized coats.

‘Mod Girls’ presented leopard print dresses, tunics and jersey pants.

The final group were the ‘Glamour Girls’. They all wore black looks ranging from wide leg palazzo pants to bustier dresses and jumpsuits.

Gwen took her bow at the end of the show wearing my favourite look from the collection; a printed one-shoulder wide-leg jumpsuit.

She started to take her bow on her own until her cute son Kingston ran onto the runway to join his mother much to her surprise.

You can see the video here.

Naeem Khan Fall 2011

Naeem Khan showcased his Fall 2011 collection on the last day of New York Fashion Week.

Naeem knows how to create the perfect red carpet worthy dress. We saw beautiful elegant, Oscar worthy gowns, mini dresses and cocktail dresses.

The beauty of a Naeem Khan dress is in the details. He decorated the dresses with sequins, crystal embellished and feathers which dazzled in the dimly lit venue.

I had to give a lot of credit to the models walking the runway in heavily embellished gowns whilst walking in those quadruple stacked Christian Louboutin Daffodile pumps.

Front Row: Iris Apfel, Rachel Roy and Ann Ward

Favourites: strapless black embroidered gown, black & white feathered mini dress and silver beaded finale dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Eva Longoria, Aishwarya Rai, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Annette Bening, Taraji P. Henson and Kim Kardashian

The Blonds Fall 2011

When it comes to a Fashion Show, The Blonds know how to entertain.

The presentation started with a pumping video which showed the oriental inspiration for the collection.

After that we were entertained by two Chinese dragons who hopped and jumped down the runway nuzzling up to front row guest.

After the Chinese dragon performance every look that took to the runway was Asian inspired.

We saw a corset accented with giant chopsticks, a Ying and Yang dress which was paired with one black and one white Christian Louboutin Pigalle heel, embellished corsets with fringed details and a kimono-like gowns in a rainbow of colours with spiky corset belts.

Key accessories included Louboutin heels and Cleopatra-style afro glitter wigs.

Anna Dello Russo was in the front row, so don’t be surprised if you see her wearing pieces from this collection during Milan and Paris Fashion Week.

You can see the whole collection on NYMag.com.

Marchesa Fall 2011

I will never know how but Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig seem to top themselves every season.

Their Marchesa Fall 2011 presentation was every more beautiful than I had imagined. I wouldn’t be surprised if stylists were placing their Oscar selections immediately to secure the best looks.

Every piece had a quiet dramatic quality to it.

We saw lots of tulle, embellishment, mermaid hems, gothic romance and some looks could easily translate to bridal gowns.

If I had to pick one favourite look it’s the dress above. It’s such a shame that the shimmering embroidered details aren’t captured in a photo as it left me breathless.

Key accessories included Christian Louboutin heels paired with lace socks, Miriam Haskell custom accessories and Marchesa signature handbags.

Celeb attendees: Vanessa Hudgens, Eve, Michelle Trachtenberg, Olivia Palermo, Petra Nemcova, Irina Lazareanu and Tinsley Mortimer

Favourites: The embroidered gown with a tulle hem above and black sheer gown with white embroidery

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kerry Washington, Camilla Belle, Diane Kruger, Olivia Wilde, Heidi Klum…the list is endless

3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2011

The 3.1 Phillip Lim presentation was another designer I had added to my New York Fashion Week schedule for the first time.

In describing this collection the designer said, “It’s about these chic women who ride bikes to work, to brunch, to a cocktail party.”

I don’t ride a bike but many pieces shot to the top of my wish list, as the designer showcased beautiful cropped pants, a wool anorak with black fur patch pockets and leather sleeves, a wool kimono sleeve jacket, a black jumpsuit with long beaded gold sleeves, colour-block pants and the final look was a sapphire maxi conical gown.

This menswear inspired collection consisted of oversized loose fitting easy wearable pieces. The outerwear really stood out with a mix of coats, anoraks and baseball jackets.

Key accessories included leather mules, scoop-front booties, cap-toe heels, oversize, square shades, briefcase-style bags and clutches.

Front Row: Richard Chai and Salman Rushdie yes Salman Rushdie

Favourites: Leather sleeved top with fern pants and taupe fold-over scarf jumpsuit

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Leighton Meester, Ginnifer Goodwin and Maggie Gyllenhaal
