Christian Dior Arrivals

There was much anticipation for Raf Simons spring collection for Dior. While I'm not sure what to make of the collection I do know who was the best dressed attendee. Leelee Sobieski stole the show in my opinion. She looked classically beautiful in this haute couture Dior coat. The color itself is gorgeous and the belt cinches her already tiny waist. Olivia Palermo also looked great in her head to toe Dior look. I do like the fact that Dasha took a risk wearing that shirt underneath the dress as for Leigh she looked cute minus the pink wedges.

My Favorie New York Spring 2013 Collections

Here are my favorite spring collections out of New York's fashion week. I have been wearing a lot of dresses as of late and it so just happens that dresses are among the biggest trends coming out for spring. Here are some of the best takes on it in my opinion.


I absolutely loved Altuzarra's spring collection. The dresses with the gold embroidery were among my favorite pieces. As where the patterned pieces that he paired with thigh skimming footwear.
Jason Wu

Jason Wu's collection was full of pretty dresses in flower motifs, leather, and lace.
Narciso Rodriguez

I wish I could wear every single slipdress Narciso presented for spring. They are sexy but in an sophisticated and effortless kind of way.
Proenza Schouler

I like the way Proenza Schouler mixed prints, colors, and fabrics in their dresses and in their collection in general. I find the photoprint on the dress on the far right to be both fun and a creative way to make the piece even more interesting.
Marc Jacobs

Marc had the 60's very much in mind for his collection from the hair to suits. The clothing was straightforward and simple like the t-shirt and underwear look that kicked off the runway.

Alexa Chung's Fashion Week Style

Alexa's style has been great during fashion week. To me it's all about the fabulous coats she has been wearing. From the black leather jackets to that gorgeous leopard coat. My favorite look has to be the jean and black bat sweater look which is quirky and quintessentially Alexa. Her hair has also been looking a lot better and I think the fringe really suits her.

Emma Stone and Diane Kruger Front Row at Calvin Klein

Emma Stone and Diane Kruger looked fab attending Calvin Klein's Spring Collection during New York Fashion Week. Emma wore a red dress paired with killer yellow pumps that really make her look pop. Diane was working a white crop top with a leather skirt. A look only she can pull off and make it look chic. For Calvin Klein's dinner Emma changed into a green jumpsuit and although it's not my favorite thing she has worn the color looks lovely on her and the exposed back gives it a sexy touch. I love the color of Diane's dress at the dinner although I think a shorter hemline would have complimented her a bit more.

Amy Winehouse

Today would have been Amy Winehouse's 29th birthday. Her talent was immeasurable and her voice was fantastic it transmitted so much  passion and emotion. Her songs were raw and brutally honest and what I loved about her was how genuine she was. There was nothing fake about her and I'm just sad I never got to see her live she is my favorite female artist of my generation. Today I wanted to remember her by posting some of my favorite pics of hers never mind all of her public meltdowns and personal problems I want to remember her for the amazing artist she was. Her personal style was all hers the beehive, the pink ballet slippers, and the feminine dresses. I also loved her exaggerated eyeliner and her trademark tattoos. She was one of a kind.

Erin Wasson During NY Fashion Week

Erin has been looking amazing during fashion week. Here are a few pics of her thus far sitting front row next to Alexa Chung or on the runway modeling Alexander Wang's latest collection. While rocking a all black outfit on the streets with her signature messy wavy hair. I just love her fashion style it's never forced but cool and laid back.

Carmen Kass Al Asalto!

The lovely Carmen Kass covers Vogue Mexico's September issue. While she is wearing similar clothing and rocking the exact same pose on both the actual cover and the inside cover she looks absolutely gorgeous. As for the accompanying editorial I like the bridge and the area in which the shots were taken as it has a fall vibe to it. The styling is sophisticated and chic with all the great coats and elegant pantsuits. While accentuating a feminine silhouette with belts on the waist and skirts perfect for fall.

Kate Bosworth & Jessica Chastain Front Row at Altuzarra

Kate Bosworth and Jessica Chastain were looking absolutely fabulous today while attending New York Fashion Week. Both of them were front row for Joseph Altuzarra's spring collection. Kate's look is flawless from head to toe while Jessica looked great as ever. Can't wait to see what they wear next during fashion week.

Twilight Concert Series 2012: Common & Aloe Blacc

Chicago hip-hop artist Common closed this years Twilight Concert Series last Thursday. Here are some pics I took of the show.  He went onstage a bit late but he was worth the wait. He was awesome live and even did a cover of Nas' classic song "N.Y. State of Mind" as a tribute to Nas who had headlined the concert series a few weeks earlier. According to the local newspaper Common attracted a crowd of more than 27,000. Warming up the crowd before Common took the stage was R&B artist Aloe Blacc. I got to the concert a bit late and only caught the last of his set but from what I did hear he sounded great live. I had a great time this summer and can't wait to see who will be on the bill for next year.

R&B artist Aloe Blacc opened for Common.

Joan Smalls is a Caribbean Queen

Joan has been on a roll as of late being the face of Estee Lauder and scoring major campaigns by Givenchy and Fendi. While recently being named the #1 model by and covering both W Magazine and Australian Vogue. She's one of my favorite models and I'm happy to see a latina doing so well in fashion. In this editorial for US Vogue's August issue she is photographed in her native Puerto Rico with her father and sisters. The pictures are lovely and capture a gorgeous fun loving family.
