New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 RTW: BCBGMAXAZRIA

Max and Lubrov Azria helped kick off New York Fashion week with a collection that was by far less minimalist than that of previous ones, but no less superb. BCBGMAXAZRIA's Fall 2013 RTW collection could be best described as grungy chic (minus the hideous flannel) for the edgy downtown girl. Think of this as dressed up, relaxed casual wear in the most fabulous of textures. Leather, fur and cashmere... need I say more?

The collection was inspired by a recent trip to Istanbul and the contemporary art of Phil Frost.

 Vibrant mosaic prints and lazer-cut patterns were presented in a plethora of flowy looks.

Cozy cashmere sweaters layered over breezy tunics were coupled with slouchy pants. Long fur vest coats and roomy leather jackets gave the collection a tough luxe appeal.

Accessories consisted of adorable cashmere beanies, leather leg warmers, pointed heels and over-sized tablet clutches. Can we all just go buy some fur and beanies asap? This collection is just as tough as it feminine and will have fashionista's clamoring for these cool girl pieces.

The Wrap Up:

  • Trend Forecast: Leather, fur, sheer details and beanies.
  • Colors: Black, white, blue, gray, oxblood and emerald.
  • Must Have Piece: The navy blue, mid-length printed jacket with the fur hoodie.
  • Front Row Access: Sami Gayle, Krysta Rodriguez, Jessica Hart and Julie Henderson. 
  • Celebs who I think will be wearing this collection: Kate Beckinsale, she loves a knit beanie. Sophia Bush, maybe not the fur, unless its faux. Naya Rivera, Amber Rose, Cameron Diaz, Lauren Conrad, Mischa Barton, Shenae Grimes and Jennifer Lopez.

Chrissy Teigen in Roland Mouret at the 2013 amfAR New York Gala

Chrissy Teigen was a vision in white at the 2013 amfAR New York Gala. The bride-to-be wore a stunning long-sleeved Roland Mouret column gown featuring front gathered and draped details. 

Chrissy styled her stunning ensemble with bronzed strappy heels, a metallic clutch and Melinda Maria's Hepburn Pod gold and black earrings.

A wavy faux bob, dark manicure and glossy berry tinted lip added the final touches to her show-stopping ensemble.

What do you think of Chrissy's look? I wonder what her Vera Wang wedding gown will look like? Whatever silhouette she selects, I am sure Chrissy will look amazing.






Take a closer look at her shimmering Melinda Maria drop earrings, available for purchase for $214.00.

Ashley Greene attended the  2013 amfAR New York Gala wearing this captivating white, twisted crepe Giambattista Valli halter-neck gown featuring keyhole detail and a gold leaf waistband.

The Twilight beauty styled her look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including a stunning pair of yellow-gold and diamond flower earrings.

Tumbling glossy tresses and a nude lip provided the finishing touches to her gorgeous ensemble.

I adore this look on Ashley, no doubt the silhouette accentuates her physique in all the right places. I think this is a bold choice for her and she pulled it off effortlessly.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Maison Martin Margiela Couture at the 2013 amfAR New York Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the 2013 amfAR New York Gala to kick-off fashion week in this electric fuchsia, strapless Maison Martin Margiela Couture silk column gown adorned with a black and white sash.

The always stylish actress accessorized her ensemble with metallic Gianvito Rossi heels, a Roger Vivier bag and glittering Fred Leighton jewels.

Loose wavy tresses and a smokey eye added the finishing touches to her bold look. 

While I always appreciate Sarah Jessica's fearless approach to fashion, I am not loving this look on her. I feel this has swallowed up her petite figure. Surprisingly, I love the sash with this look. At first I thought it was distracting, then I realized how bland the overall look would be without that piece.

What do you think of her look?

Allison Williams in Altuzarra at the Girls Season Two New York Screening

Allison walked the red carpet for the Season Two premiere of Girls in New York City wearing this glittering black and gold, strapless Altuzarra dress featuring an embroidered patchwork bustier and body skimming pencil skirt.

She complimented her stunning look with gold Fred Leighton jewels and  black Giuseppe Zanotti pumps.

A sleek, side-parted up-do, flawless make-up and glossy nude lip provided the finishing touches.

What do you think of Allison's red carpet premiere ensemble? I like that she opted not to wear a necklace with this dress, I think it would have distracted from the elaborate bodice.

Bella Heathcote in Lanvin at the Not Fade Away New York Screening

Bella walked the red carpet for the New York screening of Not Fade Away in this beautiful black and red, draped Lanvin sleeveless belted column gown. Seems that her gown is a bit bunched up and a little wrinkled, but I am not sure there is anything to be done about that considering the fabric.

The young star added black jewels and black satin heels to accessorize her elegant ensemble.

Wine stained lips and a side-swept up-do provided the finishing touches.

What do you think of Bella's look?
