Tessa Thompson Front Row @ Giulietta, Jenny Packham & Rodarte’s Fall 2015 Shows

Tessa Thompson Front Row @ Giulietta, Jenny Packham & Rodarte's Fall 2015 Shows

With New York Fashion Week coming to a close today, here is a quick look at ‘Selma’ star Tessa Thompson’s front row looks.

Giulietta: I love that she didn’t go for a safe option, not that there are many with Giulietta’s collections. With all her fellow FROWers opting for comfort in their heavy coats, the beauty stood out in her colourful threads.

Jenny Packham: Sadly this look really fell flat for me. The unflattering dress, the styling (especially the coat and hair) – nothing really excited me about this look.

Rodarte: Now this was more like it. Having shut down the red carpet in Rodarte at the ‘Selma’ New York premiere, the actress was no doubt first on the designer’s front row list. Dying over that studded boot/leggings combo, I also love the flamenco flare via the ruffled shirt. There is a lot going on, but it totally works for me (perhaps minus the oversized clutch). What say you?


Michael Kors Fall 2015 Front Row

Michael Kors presented his Fall 2015 collection during New York Fashion Week on Wednesday (February 18) at Spring Studios in New York City, where a selection of lovely ladies were perched in his Spring 2015 collection in the front row.

Kate Hudson: It appears that Kate has finally found a look to match her sunny personality. The off-the-shoulder knit top gives the look a hint of sultriness while the floral-print skirt brings the look back to prim. I love the Charlotte York uptown Park Avenue princess feel that’s oozing from this ‘ladies who lunch’ look.

Allison Williams: Working a different look that showcases a slice of skin, I love how Allison’s Michael Kors Spring 2015 daffodil- and peony-embroidered two-piece look salutes modern sophistication with casual grace.

Rhianna In Zac Posen & Chanel – Zac Posen Fall 2015 Front Row

Rhianna In Zac Posen - Zac Posen Fall 2015 Front Row

Rihanna was seated front row at the Zac Posen Fall 2015 show held at Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal on Monday (February 16) in New York City, having worn two amazing Zac Posen gowns for both her red carpet arrival and performance at the First Annual Diamond Ball for the Clara Lionel Foundation back in December.

The look on this occasion was simple, classic and elegant – not words I usually attribute to the singer on the red carpet, but here you have it.

Despite this look not feeling very Rihanna-like – attention-seeking with a touch of OTTness – I’m enamoured by the shape-enhancing structure and that rich maroon hue with matching Manolos.

After the show she was spotted leaving the venue wearing a Chanel Pre-Fall 2015 coat in a similar hue finished with a metallic sheen.

Carolina Herrera Fall 2015 Front Row

Carolina Herrera presented her Fall 2015 collection during New York Fashion Week on Monday (February 16) in New York City.

While I eagerly await the moment when Emmy Rossum or Camilla Belle take to the red carpet in that gorgeous sky-blue strapless tiered gown, let’s see who got to see the collection first hand in the front row.

Olivia Palermo: Those who thought Olivia rude for not wearing Fendi to the Fendi event last week will be delighted to know she wore CH Carolina Herrera on this occasion; however, for me this black and white floral cloque dress doesn’t really appear to be suited to her style. Dare I say it feels too prissy.

Dianna Agron: The ‘Glee’ actress has long been a fan of the Venezuelan-American designer, and vice versa. Dianna’s best Carolina Herrera moment for me was the 2012 Met Gala. On this occasion she carried a CH Carolina Herrera ‘Maysa’ bag wearing a Carolina Herrera airy black and blue floral-print dress that complemented the backdrop. Had this not been in New York, where temperatures are well below freezing, I would’ve been put off by the tights.

Jordana Brewster: Opting not to go the uber-girlie route, the actress opted for Carolina Herrera chic separates with a distinct edgier flair, which incorporated leather pants. The black and white combo was interrupted by a python CH Carolina Herrera ‘Astrud’ bag.

Beyonce Knowles In Harbison – adidas Originals x Kanye West Yeezy Season 1 Front Row

Beyonce Knowles joined Rihanna in the front row of the adidas Originals x Kanye West YEEZY SEASON 1 fashion show during New York Fashion Week Fall 2015 held at Skylight Clarkson Square on Thursday (February 12) in New York City.

The singer wore a Harbison Spring 2015 navy floral embellished crop top and pencil skirt that fell below the knee, which had me rejoicing for the mere fact that she served up something new.

Adding a contemporary colour-block coat into the mix worked well, showing a real flair beyond the expected for once while bringing structure to the look.

Beyonce removed one of the floral tributes on her ensemble, but I wish she had considered the removal of the dual-colour fur clutch too. This took the look into way-too-much-going-on-ville.

Alaia sandals and circular shades completed her FROW look.
