Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is upon us! Here are some of my favorite looks and behind-the-scenes photos from NYFW so far. Most of these came from social media (Instagram and Facebook), while a few came from Women’s Wear Daily.
Warning: I’m a huge fan of sophisticated, princess-y, and classic styles. If I could have a combination of Kate Middleton’s wardrobe and Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe, I would be happier than a bird with a french fry. This photo gallery probably reflects that.

I normally don’t like v-necks, but this Oscar de la Renta gown is princess-y perfection. Photo via Women’s Wear Daily.
Black and white was a major component of Reem Acra’s RTW F/W collection. I love the simpleness of the white skirt. Photo via Women’s Wear Daily.

This looks like something out of Olivia Pope’s closet. I love the detailing on the jacket. Appropriately enough, this ensemble is part of Alice + Olivia. Photo via the designer’s Facebook page.
This Alice + Olivia skirt is gorgeous. I love the fabric, the length, and the dash of glamour. Photo via Alice + Olivia’s Facebook page.
The structure and and simplicity of this Narcisco Rodriguez white coat is swoon-worthy. The length is a little odd, but this seems like a piece that you could wear season after season. Photo via Women’s Wear Daily.

I’m not usually one for “mullet dresses,” but this is spectacular. Photo via Zac Posen’s Facebook page.
Dramatic, but still somewhat reserved. I love everything about this Zac Posen creation. Photo via Zac Posen’s Facebook page.
