New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 Front Row: Day 4

Posted on September 10, 2013

As we may have mentioned once or twice, we’re quite exhausted at the moment, so you’d think we’d be primed to rip all these lovely people to shreds, especially if one of them might have stepped on your little toe with her stiletto and shall not be named here. Just sayin, is all.

But something’s in the bottled water around here, because almost everyone seems to really be putting the effort in. Well shit. That’s no fun.

 

DKNY Spring 2014 Show
Alexandra Daddario

Classic and chic.

Bella Thorne

Ooooh, honey. That didn’t survive the limo trip very well, did it? Lesson learned, dear.

Holland Roden

We  don’t think the jacket’s quite working for her, but we can’t say anything bad because we never saw anyone at Fashion Week so game for posing for fans. She was very sweet and friendly to the  apparent hordes of Teen Wolf-loving fans outside the venue.

Kelly Osbourne

 Sharp and photogenic. Nicely done.

 

 

Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2014 Show
Allison Williams

See Kelly Osbourne entry.

Bella Thorne, AnnaSophia Robb

Bella Thorne

Coco Rocha

OH THANK GOD. Crazy pantsuits! Thank you, Coco and Bella! You kinda sound like poodle names when we say them together like that, but we appreciate you bringing some adventure to your fashion, girls.

Colton Haynes, Jessica Joffe

Passed right by him. He’s taller than we thought he’d be and his skin is amazing. Love his outfit. She looks very practical-chic.

Jessica Alba

Like the jacket but we’re not sure if it goes with the rest of the outfit. Would love to see it with jeans.

Nicki Hilton, Paris Hilton

Nicki looks a mess. We got a chance to watch Paris for a bit. She acts like someone who thinks and hopes that someone, somewhere is looking at her. Every blink and tilt of the head looks a little self-conscious. But hey, her outfit’s cute.

Rachel Zoe

 Zoe chic. But that looks like a lot for this week’s weather.

 

 

Ralph Rucci Spring 2014 Show
Carmen Dell’Orefice

GODDESS. We couldn’t get close enough for a cell phone picture this time, dammit. The cameras were all over her, as cameras rightly should be.

June Ambrose, Jay Emanuel

These two have been all up and down the joint all week. We saw them practically everywhere together. Jay’s hair is hypnotic in person. Truly. And it’s adorable, but whenever a fan asks for a pic, he advises them on the setting they should be using for their camera and the best possible lighting conditions in the immediate area. We’ve seen him do this over and over again. He did it to us, the first time we met him, at QVC. And believe it or not, we don’t think it’s rooted in vanity on his part. We think he takes his duties to his fans very seriously and as a photographer himself, he wants to make sure they get a good picture. He’s very sweet about it, actually.

Of course that doesn’t mean we can sign off on his outfit. Still, he’d be unrecognizable if he dressed boring or conservatively.

Martha Stewart

 Classy.

 

 

Zac Posen Spring 2014 Collection
Christina Hendricks

Va-VOOM. We don’t think the sleeves work for her, though. To be fair, we don’t think they’d work for a whole lot of ladies.

Sweetie, whoever told you to wear those shoes? Cut them out of your life immediately and find someone who knows how to pick out a chic kitten heel for you.

Kelly Osbourne

Gotta say, she’s killing it.

Leigh Lezark

That is way too much dress for a crowded room and 6 square inches of chair space alloted to you.

Molly Sims

This is pretty much the Fashion Week uniform for a whole bunch of ladies.

Stacy Keibler

 Well there you go. We found the dress that Stacy Keibler can’t really pull off.

      CARMEN!!!!!
      I can die happy now.
      *keels over*

      • Cathy S

        I could look at Carmen all day.

      • rh33

        I want to be Carmen when I grow up.

    • RussellH88

      Stacy Keibler has a leather vagina on her chest.

      • NinaBoo

        Well THAT will be a recurring nightmare for me. Can’t unsee what shouldn’t have been seen.

      • Julie

        I was afraid to say it, but I saw it too.

      • Nikko Viquiera

        Can’t. unsee.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        Maybe it’s a backhanded homage to Alien.

      • fiestyfashionfem

        Actually, y’all, it is a leather vulva. The vagina is internal. I’m always educatin’

        • Alloy Jane

          Fine, leather labia. The vulva is the part that grows fur and that is clearly the entrance to the glory hole.

      • YoungSally

        Saw it too –although technically (medically) not vag…but we all know where you are going with it.

      • fursa_saida

        Oh GOD, now I’m thinking about the anatomy of bog people.

      • livesarah

        I usually think the BKs overdo it a tad when it comes to seeing vaginas, or arrows pointing to vaginas (etc etc) on peoples’ clothes. But even I saw this one :o

    • Mazenderan

      I’d like Christina Hendricks and Kelly Osborne to swap dresses.

      • conniemd

        If nothing else, the swap in colors would be better fits with the hair colors – green with red hair, burgundy with the silver hair.

        • Mazenderan

          Totally. I think the relative lack of detail on KO’s dress would also serve CH better.

      • mlle

        I’d also like them to swap lip colours. Kelly’s makeup, though cute, clashes with her hair.

      • MissusBee

        Or at least Christina to take note – you don’t have to hide your arms under floofy sleeves, just because they’re not Aniston thin. Kelly looks amazing in that dress, which shows off her (stunning) figure rather than trying to distract us with some sort of floofy sleeve diversion. I too have to deal with the generous arm that goes with the substantial boob. It’s not easy one to work with, but I do believe that whatever your fashion problem, floof is almost never the answer.

        • DuBey2

          This: whatever your fashion problem, floof is almost never the answer.

      • livesarah

        I thought the same thing, but on Christina, Kelly’s dress would almost warrant an ‘of course’.

    • 3boysful

      Kelly’s first look: I have an old-fashion axiom drilled into me about not wearing a shoe (particularly white) lighter than your hemline (esp black).

      Did Zoe melt into a puddle after 30 minutes?

    • http://twitter.com/janedonuts Jane Donuts

      Christina! Why. Why. Why. It hurts.

      • procrastinatrice

        I know. That is some unflattering shit.

    • Donyelle

      Carmen Dell’Orefice is a goddess! The rest are mere mortals.

      • MoHub

        She is the queen goddess.

    • http://www.what-the-frock.com Dana WhatTheFrock

      Stacy’s dress looks like a vagina.

      • MoHub

        Well, labia at any rate.

    • Lori

      Was Leigh Lezark getting married in the venue when the show was over? If not, that dress was totally ridiculous.

    • marlie

      Carmen Dell’Orefice looks like a goddess. I actually don’t like what she’s wearing, but then… that FACE. All of these other starlets need to take note.

      • MRC210

        Wonderful face, but that gap between the buttons over her bust ruins the look of the outfit.

        • marlie

          True. And the color is rather hideous. That’s why I just keep looking at her face. She’s beyond striking.

        • kimmeister

          Yes, I noticed it too, and wondered if others would be too busy worshipping to notice any flaws.

          • quiltrx

            The whole outfit probably only registered as “I just saw Carmen. And I’m pretty sure she wasn’t naked.”

      • Judih1

        Goddess indeed. She justs more elegant and gorgeous as she ages. Classic

    • MoHub

      So I looked at Christina Hendricks, and now my boobs hurt.

    • Emily Smith

      i feel like stacey kiebler must smell really bad in that.

    • Kate

      Carmen and Coco for the win!

    • Fred Vaughn

      You guys missed the babyheads on Kelly’s second look??? REALLY??

      • ccinnc

        I thought she rocked that dress. Had no idea she had such a nice rack.

    • Rand Ortega

      Carmen completely takes my breath away. In the dictionary there’s a picture of her next to the definition of fabulous.

    • ubreyn12

      I want to be Carmen Dell’Orefice when I grow up. Not an ounce of skin showing and she is the most glamorous person there. Take notes ladies.

      • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

        And at Ralph Rucci too.

    • Jacquelyn

      Man, Kelly Osborne is *killing* it in both her pics. Love that green dress despite some major babyhead thing going on.
      Nicky Hilton looks like she just woke up and has no idea how she got to Fashion Week
      Brava Christina Hendricks. This is better than what you normally do.

    • It’s Kimmy

      Christina’s dress gave her Popeye arms.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      Holy shit Bella Thorne actually (kinda) dressed her age!!!! Loving that red pantsuit. Coveting, actually.

      • alyce1213

        Almost — more for a 20- or 30-something, not a 15 year old. But better.

        • Sara Brams-Miller

          Definitely agree. I just think she dresses mature as in for a 50 year old. At least she’s going down in age. ;)

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        I (kinda) respectfully disagree. There’s sideboob in her second outfit. Sideboob and what looks to be a peek-a-boob keyhole top. She needs to put ‘em away.

        • Sara Brams-Miller

          Meh. She looks classy.

      • marlie

        At least she doesn’t look like she’s off to work in a corporate environment. Baby steps…

      • DuBey2

        I Loved that pantsuit on her and it really sets off her hair color. That’s maybe a personal best for her.

    • algaechick

      Can we just have a Carmen Dell’Orefice New York fashion week entry? And then print it and hand it out to all the fumbling ladystars who seem to find dressing in fabulous clothes and looking fabulous difficult.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Bella was really having a jumpsuit moment yesterday eh? The second one works while the first one.. all you really need to say is “lavender satin jumpsuit with exposed front zipper” and you know that’s going to look hideous pretty much no matter what. LOVE both of Kelly’s dresses, I want that gray/black/white one with a passion.

      SMH poor Stacy and her labia dress. And oh man poor Christina her girls look enormous and uncomfortably squished and the sleeve flounces are not flattering at all! The way the extra fabric camouflages her beautiful hourglass shape is tragic.

    • SewingSiren

      Martha Stewart looks fantastic.

    • alyce1213

      Carmen wins Fashion Week! What more can be said? Exquisite. Bella Thorne was seen eyeing her ensemble. (kidding)

      Does Paris Hilton really still pose like that?
      Christina Hendricks is doing much better.
      I absolutely love everything about how Jay Emanuel looks, a WERQ for me. His hair looks like it really good silver.

      • Sunraya

        Rachel Zoe is the Olson Twins for the 2010s. She seems to hate her body.

      • MilaXX

        Yes and apparently she’s now DJ’ing and making bank. My guess is the crowds are largely filled with her stans, but there ya’ go.

      • marlie

        She’s pregnant again, too. Seems like she wore clothes that swallowed her up more and more when she was preggo with her first.

      • livesarah

        I loved Jay Emanuel’s outfit too! Regular old suits, no matter how well cut, don’t have a lot of personality to them. I would have given it a WERQ too.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      Follow Coco Rocha on Twitter or Facebook, she’s posting a lot of photos from the NYFW!

    • http://twitter.com/aynaborrell Anastasia

      Allison Williams looks fantastic! She’s like a smiley Rooney Mara/Audrey Bot.

    • shirab

      Martha Stewart looks classy in a high school principal at back to school night kind of way, not a kajillionaire mogul kind of way.

      • marlie

        But sometimes, that’s the most you can hope for. :)

        • demidaemon

          Despite being a former model, she doesn’t really seem like a fashion girl, right? I think, for Martha, she looks pretty awesome here.

          • DuBey2

            I just wish she’d try harder. She still has a great face. And she can afford some great style, thats for sure.

    • decormaven

      Gents, you’ve outdone yourselves this time. Great coverage of the event! Thank you so much.

    • stu844

      Is it just me or does the front of Stacy Keibler’s dress look like a leather clit?

      • sagecreek

        Well, now I can’t unsee that.

      • Fordzo

        Can’t unsee.

      • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

        Ha! You’re evil!

    • Big Bear

      Kelly O, give your stylist a raise. You look fabtasticular. Yes, even the hair.

    • MarissaLG

      Bella Thorne- I don’t know who she is, but DAMN bitch looks fly.

      • alyce1213

        She’s a 15 year old actress. “Bitch looks fly” may not be the best way to go at her age.

        • MarissaLG

          Really??? I’m shocked. Well then, the little lady looks fly!

      • Sara Brams-Miller

        Right??? I agree with the little lady correction though. I don’t know why everyone’s making such a big deal about her being 15. I’ve seen plenty of 15-year-olds dressing way sluttier. She looks classy as all hell.

        • marlie

          I don’t think she’s dressed slutty at all; just that it’s “mature.” The difference between the two is very subtle. She looks fine, but she just doesn’t look her age.

          • demidaemon

            I think there is a way to do it without tipping over the mature line or the slutty line. But I don’t think she’s hit the sweet spot yet. I also have a conspiracy theory that all these Disney starlets have Disney assigned stylists who do their best to make the girls look as wholesome as possible, which tends towards mature. This is why they all go off the rails after their stint at Disney is over.

            • DuBey2

              hmm. Well, they do indeed go off the rails after their Mickey Mouse stint. Who IS Bella Thorne, anyway? I do confess, I love her in that red/orange jumpsuit.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      Kelly Osbourne looks great. I want both dresses, especially the green

      • Lower L

        I’d like the green one, too. Does anyone know who the designer is?

        • Erica_Vuitton

          I did some Googling and I believe it’s a 1 off from Zac’s Spring 2013 ready to wear collection.

          • Adrianna Grężak

            She was at a Zac Posen show, so she’s probably wearing one of his dresses

      • DuBey2

        So happy to see her looking so great. Especially in the green, but IMO, that shade would be hard to wear.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      I get the appeal of Rachel Zoe’s style, but she dresses like somebody who hates their body.

      • Fordzo

        I think she does.

        • Adrianna Grężak

          She’s made nevative comments on her Bravo show. She always dresses in these oversized clothes that cover every inch of her body.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        She is preggo again so maybe she’s just covering up for… incubation?

      • Hermione

        I think the clothes she wears and most of the clothes she designs are meant to camouflage anorexia.

        • Adrianna Grężak

          I wonder if it’s a reaction against the tabloids that accused her of an eating disorder when she wore clothes that showed her back/chest. This was a plotpoint in an earlier Rachel Zoe Bravo season. She works in an incredibly critical industry

      • MilaXX

        I don’t mind her outfit here. It’s just too many layers for sitting in crowded tents in NYC right now.

        • Alloy Jane

          I’ve always felt that she epitomizes Crazy Cat Lady Chic. Except right here, where it’s just plain old Crazy Cat Lady.

      • Glam Dixie

        If she were a man, she would be an elderly gay wind-chime.

    • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      Is it wrong that for both of the Kelly Osborne pics, I like them much better if I scroll up far enough to chop off her head? Yes, I guess it is. I can’t help it though. Can’t stand the hair, and she has a big, bobble-head.

      • Fordzo

        Someone really must be paying her to keep that hair color. Even *I* switch things up every few months.

        • alyce1213

          I’ve heard she’s contractually obligated to have lavender hair for a certain time. I don’t know.

          • Fordzo

            Are you joking?

            • alyce1213

              I don’t know if it’s a real contract or just publicity/hype, but

              http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/05/kelly-osbourne-purple-hair_n_3022142.html

            • Fordzo

              Things that make you go “hmmm”.

            • marlie

              Did you say that just because Arsenio has a talk show again? ;)

            • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

              That was one incredibly unfunny premiere show last night. I know I’m not his target audience, but I loved his old show and usually think he’s hilarious.

              I finally turned it off when I heard Chris Tucker’s annoying voice say “great” for the 100th time.

            • marlie

              Hopefully he’s just working out the kinks. I didn’t watch it but heard a review on the radio this morning that said that it was a little stuff. Hopefully he’ll work out the kinks before they cancel him!

            • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

              I am rooting for him to succeed. But the bits that they had months to prepare were just straight up not funny, not just to me but to the live audience that was thrilled to have him back.

            • Fordzo

              No. I said it because I am old and thought I was being “cool”. Are you telling me I’m hip again? OMG, I’ve got to text my stepson at college and tell him!

    • Fordzo

      I just noticed Kelly’s orange lipstick with the green dress. I don’t like it paired with the green dress and lavender hair.

      • Monabel

        Now, I think it makes the look.

    • Sunraya

      I truly think Christina Hendricks is the worst dressed lady in Hollywood and NY. She just doesn’t have any idea what to do with the goods. She should look back at some of the vintage clothes for ladies like Marilyn Monroe, you know, kind of dress like her character on Mad Men. She seems to purposely try to NOT dress like her character, and disasters ensue.

      • MilaXX

        I don’t think this is a bad look for her, but it needs tweaking. Straight sleeves and a better shoe & I’d be okay with the look.

      • GillianHolroyd

        And it does NOT bode well that she is at Zac Posen’s show.

        Christina in Frilly Zac. Ugh.

        • marlie

          She’s worn his stuff before, and IIRC, it’s not worked for her in the past.

    • JauntyJohn

      A lot of great looks.
      And as for Ms. Osbourne’s hair, I like it. I never really had a problem with it, and at this point I think we can deem it a signature look (like it or hate it). Personally I admire someone who plants a flag and says “this is my thing” and then incorporates it into the rest of their styles.

      • demidaemon

        I agree. At first I didn’t particularly like it, but it’s grown on me, especially the fact that she never falls into the trite styles that most starlets use in and out of the RC. There is no cocker spaniel hair or side mermaids with her.

    • YoungSally

      How about every time there is a photo of Bella let’s all say “She’s 15″

      • Alloy Jane

        Heh, I was hoping that they’d caption her with that. Because it bears repeating. SHE’S 15. I have no clue who she is outside of this website, but I’m wondering why she seems so much older than her actual age. Here’s hoping it’s a wealth of maturity that leaks out and makes her look like an adult and not a child, so that once she breaks away from Disney, she doesn’t go cuckoo for coco puffs.

    • halleygee

      Don’t know who Coco Rocha is but I love her for pulling off that pantsuit.

      • demidaemon

        She’s an awesome model whose claim to fame is her ability to micropose in mere seconds and still look awesome in 90% of her shots.

        • DuBey2

          Thanks. I did not know that (the micropose part). But I was wondering: Shouldn’t she be on some of these runways? Maybe she is, but just not this day??

    • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      I cannot for the life of me understand why Christina Hendricks can look so slammin’ on “Mad Men” and so not-slammin’ the rest of the time.

      • filmcricket

        Custom-fitted clothes, industrial undergarments, and superior lighting.

    • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

      Kelly Osbourne looked awesome, purple hair or not.

    • Danielle

      Carmen wins. You can all go home now.

    • Glam Dixie

      Kelly O is adorable but her face is too round for those booms. Soft side swept bangs maybe, she needs to experiment and find what works. Jay’s outfit is cray. Full Stop. A lot of these folks look like they had to be melting in those tents. Just the idea of a hot flash in that crowd with all of those clothes on makes me bonkers. But hey, that’s probably just me.

    • Trickytrisha

      Love me some purple haired Kelly. Why are Bella Thorne and Holland Roden at each and every one of these shows?
      Jay M. is cute as a… uh, can’t think of a metaphor, but he’s adorable. Nobody can hold a candle to Ms. Carmen.

      Christina H. was offended by an interviewer calling her full figured… uh, honey, that’s as full a figure as any lucky gal could wish for. Just learn how to dress it?

    • bertkeeter

      Paris WHO?

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      Keibler’s dress looks like a leather vulva.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      I have cousins called Coco and Bella. I will now think of them as the poodles.

    • e jerry powell

      I’m giving Kelly O a pass on the shoes she wore at DKNY. They’re just jarring to me, and I’d slap a drag queen for doing it, but that’s mostly because a drag queen would be doing it with black hose.

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      Stacy Kiebler= trying to hard.
      Martha frickin’ Stewart: 72!
      Loved Bella and Coco’s jump suits. Loved.
      Carmen Della Orifice= who I want to be when I grow up

    • Pudgy Possum

      If memory serves me right, Kelly Osbourne has never looked this great! Attagirl!

      • J. Preposterice

        I want Kelly’s gray colorblocked dress. Right now. GET IN MY CLOSET, DRESS.

    • HVM

      I’m still amazed that Bella Thorne is under the age of 20. On a positive note, that picture of Carmen is going to inspire me to wear heels tomorrow.

    • Tom Markiewicz

      Is it just me, or is Stacey Keibler’s dress sporting a leather vagina at the neckline?

      • MoHub

        Not a vagina. More like labia.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          Leather Labia would be a great name for an all-girl punk band.

    • quiltrx

      I want Alba’s jacket and Jay’s shirt. And I promise not to wear them together.
      I seriously think that if I ever were in the same room as Carmen, I would instantly die from the lasers of fabulousness she’s shooting!

    • superemang

      Ms. Carmen is giving me life.
      If she could just give me a smidgen of her fabulousness, i’d die happy.

    • BKagainwiththesweatpants

      CARMEN!!!!! Shutting it the fuck down. I bow to your obvious superiority, madame.

    • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

      Ooooh, Carmen. Omilord.

      But, PS: what’s up with Coco Rocha? She looks terribly thin.

    • AmeliaEve

      Late to the party, but oh, I swooned when I saw the divine Carmen.

    • tallgirl1204

      I want Jay Emmanuel’s shoes. So much.

    • Jane

      I want Anna Sophia Robbs shoes. If I only knew who made them.

    • Kristy Sheldon

      Once again, I agree with every comment given by Tom and Lorenzo. You two never miss.
