More Favorite Looks from the Second Half of NYFW

As promised, here are some of the outfits I loved from the latter half of New York Fashion Week. Let me know what you loved in the comments!

Just as before, all original, individual model photos are from New York Magazine, but PicJoinder’ed by me.

ALICE + OLIVIA

CAROLINA HERRERA

Remember how I said that everybody needed to go home after the knockout Christian Siriano show? Well, Carolina Herrera came back with a stellar vengeance. This collection is, without a doubt, my absolute favorite S/S 2015 collection. The white floral gowns are to die for.

The best dress that graced us with its presence during S/S 2015 New York Fashion Week:

This breathtaking gown truly is a crazy beautiful work of art. I can’t even begin to understand how CH was able to piece together what looks like abstract pieces of thick paper onto tulle.

Favorite Looks from the First Half of NYFW

As of Sunday, so many beautiful ensembles had made their way down the runway at New York Fashion Week that I decided it was already time to make a “favorite looks” post. I selected my favorite outfits from Christian Siriano, Monique Lhuillier, Jason Wu, Thakoon, Kate Spade, Lacoste, Prabal Gurung, DVF, Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander Wang, and more (see, I told you it was a lot!). The rest of my favorites will show up this weekend.

All original, individual model photos are from New York Magazine (but if it’s any consolation, I did divide and Picstitch them together myself!).

CHRISTIAN SIRIANO

All of it. I want all of it. I need all of it. I MUST HAVE ALL OF IT. <swoon>

<faints> Christian Siriano wins NYFW. Everybody else can just go home.

KATE SPADE

JASON WU

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG

Oh, the gingham outfit is positively precious, and the model is gorgeous.

MONIQUE LHUILLIER

REBECCA MINKOFF

THAKOON

Does the name sound familiar? It should. Thakoon designed Emma Stone’s effortlessly flawless pink gown for this year’s Met Ball.

PRABAL GURUNG

I had high hopes for Prabal Gurung. Unfortuately, for the most part, I was disappointed.

Behind the Catwalk: NYFW S/S 2015

One of the coolest things about Instagram is that it’s become a place for designers, models, celebrities, and bloggers to post photos from behind the scenes at fashion shows. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite looks and behind the curtain snapshots from New York Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2015 looks.

Behind the Catwalk: the Best of New York Fashion Week

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.
