NYFW Fall 2012 – Street Style & Front Row Fashion

 
One of the best parts of Fashion Week is getting the chance to see what all the fashion insiders (designers, models, editors, celebrities, buyers, photographers, writers…) wear to the shows and the looks they put together for the seemingly endless parade of events, dinners, parties, store openings, and galas over the course of the week. As breathtaking as the runway shows are, the vast majority of the looks aren’t exactly “street ready,” so that makes it especially fun to see how real people can wear the types of pieces we see on the runways.
 

Mr. Kors had QUITE the fan club in his front row - Fashion icon Angelica Houston, actresses Debra Messing and Paula Patton, gorgeous newcomer Amber Heard and new mom Jessica Alba.

Ashley Smith & Lindsey Wixson at the Annabelle Dexter Jones x Faith Connexion Dinner. I like Ashley's hair and Lindsay's dress.

Damn she's good! I can't decide if I love the chic, twisted burnt orange frock or the layered gold & gem necklace more... Necklace I think! No, bag!

 

Great blue dresses in the front row of BCBG from Giada De Laurentis & Maria Menounous, really beautiful, flattering colors.

 

Stylist Robert Verdi looked the part in various shades of grey and a stunning two-tone coat. Um... Can I borrow your bag?

Sort of reminds me of my grey look… But prettier! 🙂
 

I always look forward to seeing Poppy, she consistently wears something fun and different, no cookie-cutter nonsense for this girl! So what does she wear to the Richard Chai show? Low-key skinnies, a cute Fair Isle sweater & booties. Casual but chic.

 

Jennifer Nettles was a site for sore eyes at the Peter Som Fall 2012 Show. I love that she was February-appropriate in great tweed & a faux leather pencil skirt, but the bright cobalt pumps stole the show & moved her look up to perfect for the front row!

Amazing. No words.

Who wore the Prabal Gurung floral satin pants better? Zoe Saldana above or Joan Smalls?
 

Caroline Sieber's look was picture perfect, I especially love the mixing of similarly colored patterns & fabrics. Very chic.

 

Hanneli does it again, looking impossibly chic in a striped T and an upside down Acne skirt that I must own.

I'm LOVING the plaid suit here. Rarely does Miss Palermo get out-fashioned, but Zoe pulls it off here.

Looks of the Week

 
I’m not sure if it’s because celebs are gearing up for the 2012 awards season or what, but when I was looking at pictures over the last week I saw a lot of gowns. A lot. But since I am one of many women secretly harboring a princess fantasy, I never say no to ball gowns!
 
Bring on the glam!
 

Jennifer Hudson looked PHENOMENAL at the Michael Kors Celebration of American Fashion

 

One of the things that initially made Freida such a standout on the red carpet last year was the oh so flattering jewel tones she sported, but after seeing this I'm not sure what I prefer on her. Love the dress, love the styling, love the hair & makeup.

While Carrie does look a little bit like she’s auditioning for the role of Oscar, you have to admit she’s spot on for an event like the CMAs. A beautiful dress with a flattering cut and enough shimmer and shine to stand out on the red carpet.

Jennifer Nettles wore my favorite dress of the CMAs, it was dramatic enough for a country affaire but still stylish and chic. Love her hair.

Sofia Vergara looked - to quote RZ - BANANAS at the Latin Grammy's. Whoa, this woman has a KILLER figure.

Zoe also attended the Latin Grammy's and stole the show in this gorgeous green gown. I would wear this is a heartbeat!

Jaime King looked chic and elegant, nothing fancy or innovative, just pure glam all the way!

 

Ashley Greene looked stunning and statuesque at the Breaking Dawn premier in custom Donna Karan.

 
And just because I couldn’t resist… He’ll be our non-gown love!
I don’t even know where to start! I love the suit w/ the vest & rolled pants, I love the shirt w/ the cuffs protruding slightly, I love the fun tie, I love the bag and those socks KILL ME. Seriously, can The Sartorialist start listing phone numbers for his males subjects? I want to go shopping with this guy!

To me fall is a time for change. The seasons are changing, why shouldn’t we? And in true MCLV fashion, I made a drastic change in the form of cutting bangs into my long blonde hair and dying it dark, vibrant red. I’m ready for Fall now!
