Yesterday, I stated that the theme of Day 5 of Fashion Week was ladylike. Today, it was luxe.
Given the fact that Naeem Khan was an apprentice to my favorite designer of all time – the legendary Halston, it’s no surprise that I would be a huge fan of his beaded and sequined dresses. Khan has become a regular go-to for celebrities on the red carpet and he showed several gowns in this collection that will certainly have their spotlight moments.
Just picture Beyonce (post babies) wearing the beaded column gown on the right below.
More red carpet glam was to be discovered on the runway at Badgley Mischka.
The parade of formal gowns and cocktail attire was followed by a collection of more casual – though still very glamorous – separates, including a blue velvet track suit that could very well give the Juicy Couture girls a run for their money.
As a vegetarian and an animal lover, I really wish all designers would use only fake fur and faux leather, or at least offer a fur-free and vegan version of their collections. I never feature anything with real fur on Stylaphile, and there were a lot of fur looks at Sally LaPointe that stood out, but I would only say that I loved them if they were faux. Luckily, there were many other “no animals were harmed in the making” looks that I fell in love with in this collection, including this deep v-neck fuchsia number and the gray sequined pencil skirt.
