NY Fashion Week Day 2

Our style editor surveys the shows and sends us her picks

Dispatches from Day 2:

My day started at 8:30am with British young blood William Tempest. His website looked like his clothes would be hard-edged rocker bad boy. But, how wrong I was. The spring collection was softly draped dresses, romantic, and ethereal in corals, nudes, and pale grays, all done in frothy chiffons and velvets. The shoes were Tempest’s collaboration with Mechante of London. Soaring five-inch heels in an array of colors. Tempest is a fave of Victoria Beckham and Emma Watson. 

Next, I was given a seat to Jenny Packham’s show. Apparently, there weren’t enough people, so along the runway I sat. Another Brit, her designs were like works of art. Almost every dress was either hand-beaded or hand-painted in silk-crepe satin or silk chiffon. She’s a favorite of Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, and Jennifer Aniston.

Next up was Tracy Reese. I am a fan. But this collection didn’t inspire. It was a back to the 70’s theme with floppy hats, which I did like, and flouncy sleeves. It was all a little too nerd chic for my taste. But I saw celebrities—Model and actress Veronica Webb, Charlie Sheen’s X, Denise Richards, and the glorious OG super-model, Beverly Johnson.

Next up Monique Lhuillier. Ok ladies…next time you need a gown, this is the designer to look for. Whether you’re into beaded, strapless, vibrantly colorful, softly nude, sequins, or a dress covered in what look like flower petals, you’d be hard-pressed not to find something that wouldn’t make you look stunning. Lhuillier’s inspiration was a dream, and I’d rather not wake up. Oscar worthy.
