New York Fashion Week Photo Diary: Day 5
My last day at New York Fashion started at the Carlos Miele presentation! This is also one of the shows that I look forward to each season! Here I spotted Paula Abdul again (she was definitely making her NYFW rounds) and the gorgeous Vanessa Williams. The show began will sultry vocals as a model stood profile and with her arms gracefully swayed her long sheer garments from side to side in a wind swept motion. Stunning! As soon as the beat dropped she powerfully turned and stomped the runway. I love a little theatrics in an opener! This collection featured impeccable draping, animals prints, fringe, and color presenting everything from pantsuits to gowns! Next Reem Acra delivered hot pinks, sexy pantsuits, geometric cutouts in light leather jackets and skirts, electric blue shoes and incredible illusion side panel in body hugging dresses which tricked the eye into thinking the dress was simply floating in the front and back! Brilliant! The show stopper for me were the gowns of course which she does so well. My favorite was a super shimmery gold gown with ombre detail from gold to pink. YES! Finally ended the day with a Charleston fave, Chris Benz. His presentation was per usual, a media frenzy with heavy celeb traffic including Fern Mallis, Joan and Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osborne, Susan Sarandon and Vanessa Williams to name just a few. The collection itself was an endless display of coveted looks including prints, layers, rocking shoes and the introduction of the new Chris Benz denim apparel. In our brief chat as I swooned over the collection he told me it was all about 'zombie apocalypse'. Now this is zombie look I can live with... but to try to recreate it at home! I left this show in a total fashion coma toting along my Chris Benz Barbie gift bag! Later that night we partied together for Chris Benz birthday celebration and the fashion lived on into the night! Another NYFW for the books!
