I adore Nausheen Shah. She’s stunning, stylish and has a great personality—the total package! Nausheen is a stylist, so it’s no surprise that she loves to experiment with and expand on current trends. This leather look is sleek and sexy, with a retro appeal. Fuzzy mittens add a bit of softness, while her red details amp up the va va voom vibe.

There’s a lot going on with Keyshla’s outfit, but sometimes more is more! Denim is still going strong this Fashion Week, and I love the layered look of this distressed pair. Keyshla’s metallic tunic is a statement piece, but she’s toned it down with casual styling. Leopard sneaker boots are cozy and cool.

Anouck is back and looking as lovely as ever. The fashion world is 100% enamored with all things casual these days, and Anouck is a great example of how to rock laid-back basics with high-end accessories. Distressed denim and a chunky knit are must-haves for fall. And Chanel never goes out of style!

Eva Chen, the editor-in-chief of Lucky magazine, might be one of the sweetest women at Fashion Week. She’s always smiling, even when we pester her time and again for photos of her impeccable outfits. She’s got a lot to smile about, as she’s currently expecting her first child!

I love her happy-face clutch, well-placed in front of her baby bump. Eva’s black-and-white ensemble is perfect for this weather: comfy, cool and casual chic.

Helena Bordon, a Brazilian blogger, is a fixture of the Fashion Week circuit thanks to her winning personality and versatile, creative style. She is always smiling, and I love how unpredictable she is. One day she’ll rock a feminine, ladylike look; the next, an ultra-sleek city ensemble, followed by a modern sporty style. She really can do it all!

Today’s look is all about the high-low mix and a daring pairing. Who knew a sports bra and jeans could look so polished?

We’ve tallied up the highlights from yesterday’s shows—from the boldly patterned catwalks of DKNY and Diane von Furstenberg to Opening Ceremony’s star-studded theatrical dramedy at the Met.


Celebrating New York City’s “color, culture and creativity,” DKNY underscored the Big Apple’s global-melting-pot status with vivid colors, graphic geometric patterns and kaleidoscopic prints—all atop voluminous silhouettes.

Runway Rundown: Thakoon

From puffer jackets to cropped capes, Thakoon Panichgul presented a smart and bright take on cold-weather dressing. The Thailand-born, New York-based designer proposed innovative ways to layer and served up timeless outerwear pieces that will endure for winters to come.

Lily is a street style star: Everyone clamors for a photo when she walks by. She has an effortless sense of style, and looks chic no matter how hot it is!

Lily’s poppy floral trousers and pleated top were perfectly suited to today’s high temps. Don’t forget to spot her lace-up stilettos and box clutch, either, as those are two emerging trends this season.
