Fashion Week, Part One

Fashion Week, Part One
Friday, February, 20, 2009 The fashion crowd is a resilient lot, a fact that never fails to cheer us in gloomy times. No matter how shivery the weather may be or seriously scary the economy gets, nothing can keep the world's trendsetters from attending the shows! We adore this buoyant spirit-it truly lightens our mood-so we felt compelled to honor a few of our favorite attendees in today's What They Wore: Fashion Week. Whether they're wearing fancy frocks (à la Julia Restoin Roitfeld) or perfectly disheveled boyfriend jeans (hello, Meredith Melling Burke), we think there's much to admire about these lovely ladies and their personal style!

1. Rachel Zoe
Every outfit Rachel Zoe touches turns to gold (naturally), so we had a slew of fashion week getups to choose from for today! Our favorite ensemble is the look she sported at Marc Jacobs' show, where the sartorial saint proved that you don't have to wear a dress to attain fabulousness. Zoe demonstrated this theory when she opted for a glitzy blouse tucked into cropped pants, worn with a yellow-lined blazer and a pair of embellished platform pumps-all in all, a smashing combo for a smashing show.

2. Julia Restoin Roitfeld
Everyone's favorite editorial daughter, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, flaunted a gorgeous ensemble during the amFAR Gala to Kick Off Fashion Week at Cipriani. Roitfeld displayed the familial affinity for sequins in a sparkling Balmain mini dress and two-strap black Miu Miu pumps. The frock is glamorous enough to stand alone, so we like that Roitfeld kept her accessories minimal.

3. Zoe Kravitz
As you might have noticed by our coverage as of late, Zoe Kravitz has become a go-to girl for excellent event outfits (not to mention, stellar street style). The rockstar heiress impressed us once again at the Alexander Wang show last weekend, when she wore the designer's sweater and sweat shorts, paired with a vintage white tank and heels. Beauty aficionados take note: just like Roitfeld, Kravitz finished her look with bold red lipstick!

4. Erin Wasson
There were countless tastemakers at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld's photography exhibition at Collective Hardware, but-surprise, surprise-Erin Wasson still managed to stand out. The supermodel/stylist/designer turned heads in her own Erin Wasson x RVCA velvet dress and Lowluv bangles, a 3.1 Phillip Lim fringe top, and vintage Fendi jacket. The overall effect was disheveled glamour grunge and we deeply admire these results. Wasson never takes cookie-cutter style route-hallelujah!

5. Kate Bosworth
In terms of celebrity style, Kate Bosworth will always receive preferential treatment from the WWW editors, as she never ceases to amaze us. The bright-eyed actress stunned at the Diesel Black Gold show in a charcoal silk blouse, navy knee-length skirt, and cozy cardi, all from Diesel Black Gold's collection. As for her accessories, Bosworth flaunted a sizable Mulberry Jenah chain bag and pair of Maison Martin Margiela wedge patent sandals!

6. Remy Geller
Though there were many stylish attendees at the Tony Cohen show, we thought that Seventeen style blogger Remy Geller was most noteworthy. The WWW newcomer impressed us in a pretty tie-dye Tony Cohen top, American Apparel leggings, and Michael Antonio mary-jane heels. Geller completed her look by applying two of our favorite tips to her ensemble: a fabulous statement-making necklace by Erickson Beamon and fur gilet from H&M!

7. Sasha Pivovarova
In addition to her jaw-dropping physical features, Sasha Pivovarova is blessed with an equally dramatic sense of style! The supermodel earned our affections at The Iconoloclasts Event (celebrating Alex White, W magazine's Fashion Director, who redressed the Prada store in honor of fashion week) in a playful Rodarte dress, graphic purple Prada bag, and yummy platform Rodarte sandals with chain detailing (a nod to fetish footwear!). Pivovarova rounded off her delightful attire with layers of colorful beaded necklaces, silver bracelets, and white nail polish.

8. Meredith Melling Burke
One of our most-liked fashion editors, Meredith Melling Burke, is an omnipresent force at the shows, giving us ample opportunities to check out her personal style. Though she's always impeccably attired, we particularly liked the clothing combo she wore to the DKNY show. The Vogue Senior Market Editor went for a sophisticated and relaxed look, choosing a distressed pair of Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans as the foundation of her outfit. She dressed up the slouchy denim with a Gryphon coat, delectable red patent bag, and triple-strap black patent heels (both Chanel).

9. Peaches Geldof
One of the things we love about Peaches Geldof's style is that her outfits come off as accidentally chic, rather than systematically planned. Seen here at the Alice + Olivia presentation, she paid homage to the prevalent nineties trend in a light-wash denim vest and plaid top. Geldof completed her look with some unexpected thigh-high fishnets, lace-up leather booties, and a vintage brown satchel.
