Front Row: Stars at Fall 2013 Fashion Week, Part 1


A little blizzard can’t keep the stars from New York Fashion Week, dear readers!

Fashion Week kicked off with the amfAR New York gala. And in case you were looking for a perfect little white dress (and who isn’t?), here’s your dictionary definition of one. I love the vintage silhouette that the high, small waist and wider shoulders create, I love the sleeves, and I think the black nails and sexy sandals were perfect styling choices.

Fan-fucking-TASTIC coat. The charcoal gray and camel brown colors are brilliant together, and the coat is perfect with her printed blouse and super-skinny jeans. The shoes are absurd, but isn’t that what fashion week is all about?

It’s a little on the obnoxious hipster side, but you can’t expect anything else from Alexa Chung. I don’t think a long-strapped purse was the best choice, and the fit of this is kind of sadly sack-like. But the dress itself is cute and the shoes are fun.

As expected, the Klum rocked a mega-plunging neckline. Her necklace is crazy gorgeous, but not so much with this slightly ill-fitting and altogether predictable gown.

That vest is just silly, but she pulls it off.

Nina – killing it, but I’m surprised she didn’t chose a more interesting shoe. Heidi, predictably, looks like a sad clown who became a librarian.

Elizabeth’s colorblocked dress is adorable, and even Rashida’s silly blue ruffled top is a fun piece.

The proportion of the jacket and the length of the skirt are a little odd, but at least she piled on the jewelry to counterbalance all that black.

Carey Mulligan, the red carpet misses your little squeezable pixie face and your preppy-mod style. Also, I want to steal your coat.

Isabelle’s sixteenth birthday is coming up, so she’s only got a few weeks left in which she can pose like this and get away with it. Live it up while you can, darling! Love your shoes!

She is working the hell out of the fabulous hair, the adorable little dress, and those strappy sandals. Sami’s a former Broadway star (I saw her play Baby June in Gypsy), so I like to keep tabs on her general cuteness.

Speaking of Broadway, I’ve seen Krysta here in Spring Awakening and In the Heights, but apparently she’s now on Smash this season, so go on and get it, darling! Your shoes are boring, but the dress is sharp and your hair is almost adorable.

Cute, but she looks more like she’s at an office Christmas party than a fashion week event.

Seriously? Everyone in the front row is wearing black leggings and black pumps? What is the point in even going to fashion week if you’re going to dress like it’s any other day?

Pretty, but yawn.

She’s really starting to look like a cartoon version of herself.

Adorable dress; hate the shoes.

The sad thing is, this dress isn’t even that terrible, if it fit her and if she were wearing any semblance of a bra and those shoes were burned in a fire and her face didn’t look like it had been smoking a pack of Marlboro Reds a day for the last sixty years.

It could almost look like a real outfit, if it came anywhere close to fitting her. Also, the hair and makeup are positively ridiculous.

I don’t even know what to call this, dear readers, but let’s hope we don’t need to name it because it NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.
