It’s the middle of September and that means one thing to a lot of people. No, not football. Another F word. FASHION. We’re officially in the midst of the fashion month of the year. Over in NYC, Fashion Week has just wrapped up and over in L.A. the Emmy’s aired on Sunday making this week and weekend, Fash-tastic!
As if being an A-list celebrity everyday of the year isn’t glamorous enough. Being an A-list celebrity right now, during this month, is fantastic.
The stars all had the options of hand picking whatever gowns they desired. Gowns, of course, that came directly off the runway and now onto the red carpet. What a perfect excuse to show off a special piece from the Fall or Resort collections.
There were plenty of breath-taking looks.
Tina Fey rocked a green Oscar de la Renta gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Brian Atwood shoes
The beautiful Julianne Hough wore a red one-shoulder Giorgio Armani maxi dress, Simon G jewels, and Aldo shoes.

Saved by a Bell. Princess Anna we love your dress. #emmys2016 #emmynation #kristenbell #Repost @zuhairmuradofficial ・・・ Leading actress of the upcoming series “The Good Place” & star of Disney’s princess story “Frozen” looked like she’d just stepped out of a fairy tale scene herself yesterday evening. After teasing her look on Instagram, @kristenanniebell finally graced the #Emmys red carpet in a Champaign bouffant gown elevated by ethereal embroidery and rendered in colourful flowers & leaves contrasting the beige colour, giving her look, a romantic feel while the down-to-the-navel neckline offered just the right amount of cleavage a princess would want to show on a red carpet. #BohoRapture #KristenBelll #HauteCouture #zuhairmuradcouture #TheGoodPlace A photo posted by styleXstyle.com (@stylexstyle) on
And Olivia Culpo killing it wearing a Zac Posen dress and Casadei shoes.
If the red carpet doesn’t get your heart fluttering, maybe Fashion Week in New York is the thing that has proclaims your love. Heres a quick recap.
1) It was for sure a Kylie Jenner overload. From the Kendall + Kylie launch party to Yeezey Season 3 to the front rows at Alexander Wang, Vera Wang, Hugo Boss, Vflies; it was nonstop with this chick. She was consistently dressed to the nines and ready to pose for Instagram or Snapchat at any given moment. Only a few months ago did she release her lipstick collection, now she announced her upcoming nail polish collaboration, along with her spring contract with Puma. Reports indicate that’s worth a reported seven figures. Safe to say, we will definitely be seeing her in Paris.
2) All. Street. Everything.
The most popular branding, surprisingly enough, was brands that were commonly associated with streetwear labels, like Supreme. Logomania also swept the New York runaways. Wang splashed words like “Faded,” “tender,” or “girls,” on black tights or bright neon beanies. DKNY, Rag & Bone (one of my personal favorite stores) and Fenty Puma by Rihanna jump on the bandwagon as well. Hood by Air showed off its’ simple bodysuit with “bitch,” splashed on it. This street style vibe really shined through many collections, from extra-long sleeves to oversized tops and pants.
3) “See now, buy now.” FINALLY! Personally, this by far my favorite twist on this year’s fashion week. So, I’m not a big fashion snob, but I would like to say I have some fashion sense. One of the main things that turned me off to fashion week in the past is the over commitment. Like I can’t plan what I am making next week for dinner. I sure as hell can not commit to what I think I will look good. Fall 2016 marked a turned point for designers who wanted to make NYFW a consumer-facing event, staging shows with their customers on the top of the list. Rebecca Minkoff invited shoppers to her runway show and it was a mob scene. Other brands took baby steps, like Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, and Tommy Hilfiger who offered capsule collections that make select runway items available immediately. I LOVE IT! I think the Hilfiger collection is kick-ass and I next paycheck is all going towards new clothing from here. Let’s see if the sales numbers rise and other designers decided to follow. Fall 2016 marked a turning point for designers who want to switch gears and make NYFW a consumer-facing event, staging shows with their customers top of mind. Rebecca Minkoff invited shoppers to her runway show (which reprised the same collection she presented in September) and it was something of a mob scene. Other brands decided to take baby steps: Proenza Schouler, Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger are all offering capsule collections that make select runway items available for purchase right now. We’ll be watching to see how those sales numbers fare in the coming weeks — and if even more designers follow suit.
Tune is next week where we’ll dive into what staple pieces you should definitely have in your closet for the Fall and Winter months! Crazy how a few key parts can go so far.
