Which Was Your Favourite New York Fashion Week Look?

Catherine Kallon New York Fashion Week

I haven’t been to New York for fashion week for a few seasons as Fall takes place during awards season and Spring lands while Venice, Toronto and Deauville Film Festival are taking place, but I was determined to return for the Spring 2015 season.

Dressing up and sharing my looks was a lot of fun, so I really appreciate your comments; good and bad.

I loved all the looks, however, I can just about narrow my favourites down to five.

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Celebrities gathered to celebrate red carpet queens Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, who returned home to London to showcase their Marchesa Spring 2015 collection on the 10th anniversary of the brand.

Jena Malone: The ‘Hunger Games’ actress was perched in the front row wearing a distinctive Marchesa frock in a rich teal hue, deconstructed to create a gorgeous kilt dress rendered with 3D mohair thistle embroidery. I love her complementary eye makeup, which further emboldened the look along with her gold sparkling Louboutins.

Rita Ora: The singer ditched the red lip in favour of a deep-berry hue for her part-glamorous, part-I’m-not-sure-what’s-up-with-that-hairstyle look. She wore a Marchesa Spring 2011 blush-pink draped chiffon one-shoulder jumpsuit with black tassels on the train. The hair is too harsh for the look, but you have to – on some level – admire her for keeping things varied and interesting. She was asked by a reporter to name her favourite Marchesa red carpet look; having worn Marchesa four times previously to the Elle Style Awards, the BBC Radio One Teen Awards, the 2013 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards, and the 2012 EMAs, she said that the red embroidery and taffeta gown from the EMAs was her favourite look. When asked by the journalist where she had worn the look, Rita appeared to go blank and say “Ummm…”, at which point I interjected by saying “the MTV Awards”, to which she looked up at me with some confusion, then turned to the journalist and replied “Yeah, the EMAs”.

BOSS Spring 2015 Front Row

BOSS Spring 2015 Front Row

Many young stars flocked to see Jason Wu’s first spring runway show as BOSS’s new creative director. Of those on the front row of the Spring 2015 BOSS show were Zoe Saldana and Kate Bosworth.

Zoe Saldana: The pregnant actress wore head-to-toe BOSS, and opted for an easy, elb0w-length black v-neck dress. She paired the look with black and white sandals and a large white handbag.

Kate Bosworth: Kate also went with head-to-toe BOSS, and the dreamy seafoam colored satin, sleeveless dress with sheer overlay skirt is a fun and feminine choice. I also love her coral lip color with the dress, and that she, too, opted for the same black and white sandals as Zoe.

Naeem Khan Spring 2014 Front Row
There was no shortage of glittering style statements at the Naeem Khan Spring 2015 fashion show held on Tuesday (Sept. 9) during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, where the frow-list included a bevy of beauties all outfitted in Naeem Khan, natch.

Jamie Chung: Stunning in this metallic beaded shift dress, the starlet assured that all eyes were on the decorative design that graced her figure by skipping the jewels and wearing nude sandals. The additional flourish came courtesy of her asymmetrical, side-swept curl.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum: The actress likewise wore a sparkling dress, hers a satiny forest-green frock with an intricately embellished bib. A casually pulled-back updo and light-grey sandals completed the ensemble.
