New York Fashion Week Part Two
WHO: Peaches Geldof
WHAT: At the Milly by Michelle Smith S/S 12 show on Wednesday.
WEAR: It's always a treat when we come across the Geldof sisters at Fashion Week, and this year was certainly no exception. Peaches turned up at the Milly by Michelle Smith S/S 12 show and immediately caught the attention of onlookers with her psychedelic paisley print Milly dress! We approve of the British model's decision to keep the statement-making pattern in the spotlight by pairing it with a simple simple accessories, including a pair of nude bow-bedecked heels, and are particularly fond of her spot-on finishing touches: a pendant necklace and red lipstick.
WHO: Rachel Zoe
WHAT: Front row at the Supima S/S 12 show last Thursday.
WEAR: Rachel Zoe took a break from her busy schedule and prepping for her first ever Fashion Week presentation to check out the Supima S/S 12 show, and we couldn't help but notice her ultra-chic all-noir ensemble. The stylist/designer/yummy mummy looked fabulous in pieces from her F/W 11 collection, specifically a black and white striped blouse and wide-leg tuxedo suit.
WHO: Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Caroline Sieber
WHAT: Hanging out together at an after-party for Richard Hambleton.
WEAR: We're always excited when we spot a stylish duo-a pair of fashionable friends equals twice the sartorial splendor, as demonstrated by Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Caroline Sieber! We're crazy for JRR's all-noir ensemble, which consisted of a star-print Dolce & Gabbana dress with Miu Miu heels. Of course we are equally smitten with Sieber's effortlessly chic look, specifically her Theyskens' Theory dress, Chanel chain-strap bag, and Celine heels.
WHO: Meredith Melling Burke
WHAT: Checking out the Fenton S/S 12 collection at the Four Seasons Hotel last Friday.
WEAR: Though there are a variety of ways to pull off the denim-on-denim look, we're partial to Meredith Melling Burke's approach to this ongoing trend. Vogue's Senior Market Editor showed up at the Fenton S/S 12 presentation in a chambray shirt tucked into a pair of '70s-inspired wide leg jeans. The combination of mid-blue hues is perfect, and we appreciate that she kept her look unfussy and casual by leaving the shirt slightly unbuttoned and opting for minimal accessories-a smart styling tip for a girl on the go!
WHO: Poppy Delevingne
WHAT: Spotted at the Yigal Azrouel S/S 12 show last Friday.
WEAR: Leave it to British model Poppy Delevingne to show up to the Yigal Azrouel show in what might just be the coolest outfit! We adore the way she accented her fancy black lace Rag & Bone dress with some unexpected and quirky accents, including a Meli Melo The Bon Bon Bespoke Bag ($553) with fringe trim, vintage gold belt, and studded, leopard-print Christian Louboutin sneakers. The resulting look is quite fun and very stylish indeed!
WHO: Elin Kling
WHAT: Hanging out at an after-party for Richard Hambleton last Friday.
WEAR: We're not the only ones who are fans of Elin Kling's first-class taste-she has a popular blog, Style by Kling, that's worshipped by many a fashion follower. We think Kling's standout look at NYFW was this laidback luxe ensemble, consisting of a turquoise Whyred sweater, Acne leather skirt and belt, and metal-capped heels from her own line, Nowhere. We give this blonde blogger an A+ for creating one seriously cool outfit!
WHO: Giovanna Battaglia
WHAT: Photographed before the Thakoon S/S 12 show at the Plaza Hotel on Sunday.
WEAR: While we thoroughly enjoyed all the bright, bold looks from last season, there's something so refreshing and chic about a mix of warm neutrals right now. Case in point: the outfit Giovanna Battaglia put together for the Thakoon S/S 12 show. We spotted the L'Uomo Vogue fashion editor front row and were immediately drawn to her khaki vintage Yves Saint Laurent Sahariana jacket-it's an original from the 1968 collection!-which she wore with a pleated Prada skirt and tan Manolo Blahnik heels. To complete her safari-inspired look, Battaglia accessorized with layered bracelets on both arms and a Dolce & Gabbana clutch.
WHO: Elle and Dakota Fanning
WHAT: Snapped front row at the Rodarte S/S 12 show.
WEAR: Confession: we're a bit obsessed with Elle and Dakota Fanning right now. The stylish sisters are too cute for words and their impeccable taste in fashion is definitely worth noting. That said, excitement ensued when we spotted the two together at the Rodarte S/S 12 show decked out in head-to-toe designs from the brand's F/W 11 collection! Elle opted for a printed silk blouse and matching pants with black pointed heels, while Dakota went for a more feminine look with a sleeveless sheer lace dress and Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte wrap sandals.
WHO: Solange Knowles
WHAT: Photographed at the Luca Luca S/S 12 show Saturday.
WEAR: Solange Knowles has earned herself a permanent spot on our radar as of late, and it's easy to see why. The musician/DJ consistently picks interesting and on-point pieces, resulting in truly memorable ensembles. Take the outfit featured above, for example. Knowles showed up to the Luca Luca S/S 12 show wearing a bold, floral-print Balenciaga button-up shirt with a pair of abstract-print Luca Luca pants, leopard-print heels, and Lia Sophia's Tudor Necklace ($180), Cubist Ring ($110), and Curvature Ring with Smokey Crystals and Bone Resin ($125). You can't help but notice the visually intriguing mashup of prints, which translates into a flashbulb-worthy, fashion-forward look.-Jessica Baker and Erin Fitzpatrick
