Fashion Week Part 3
We conclude the first bit of our New York Fashion Week coverage with a few of our favorite fashion insiders. The above movers-and-shakers aren't the mass/generic/typical celebs who flock to the tents hoping to get their press-hungry faces photographed (surely you know who we're talking about, ahem). Rather, they're the muses, stylists, and editors who influence the industry with their exacting taste and keen insight.
Shall we begin with the low-profile, high-style Traina sisters? Indeed! Victoria (top left, with bangs) and Vanessa Traina never look like anyone else-a great compliment in these copycat times-and they upheld that individualistic standard at Prada's party Tuesday night. (No wonder Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen asked the Trainas to style The Row's lookbook for the spring and fall collections.) Our next duo was also snapped at the same Prada party, but they are related through employer rather than genes. On the left, in black, is Vogue's Senior Fashion Market Editor, Meredith Melling Burke, and her colleague, Valerie Bolster. We spotted MMB at countless shows (blondie's got stamina) always doing the effortlessly chic thing, like the above all-black look. Her little leather is excellent, as is the enormous cocktail ring and bondage shoes. Bolster also nailed it; her brown belt is a divine addition and you must love her excellent transitional outfit. Concluding this row is writer, redhead, model and designer muse, Jessica Joffe. Snapped at the Thakoon show (a fellow scribe himself, Thakoon used to work at Bazaar in the fashion news department), her luminosity makes it easy to understand why she inspires designers like Katy Rodriguez to create runway looks in her honor.
Technically, Anne Hathaway is not part of the fashion industry, but she's pretty darn close thanks to her new Lancome spokeswoman position (oh, and you might remember her lead role in a certain movie about a certain magazine). That said, she looked super stylish at the Marchesa presentation with her biker jacket and dainty pink skirt. Next we have two models with major style-Miranda Kerr and Irina Pantaeva, respectively. Kerr was photographed en route to the tents in weather-appropriate garb (we appreciate a practical gal) while Pantaeva was spotted attending the 3.1 Phillip Lim show in a sculptural sweater dress. The darling Riley Keough (and former Girl of the Month) was also snapped en route to shows. We hear she's scribing a Fash Week piece for one of our favorite magazines-hopefully this is true! Last, but never least, is the sweetly sophisticated Camilla Belle. She attended the week's most coveted party, the Madonna-and-Gucci-hosted "A Night To Benefit Raising Malawai and UNICEF," looking just as amazing as ever. And with that we must leave you, dear readers, for that's all the Fashion Week fun we can reveal for now. But stay tuned, we've got something amazing in store for you!
