Nothing is as electric as the first day of New York Fashion Week! NYFW is marked by a tantalizing energy that seems to transfer from the audience to the runway. Max Azria capitalizes on that rousing atmosphere by choosing the first day for his BCBGMAXAZRIA S/S 2013 collection.
If I had to sum the collection up in one word, it would be – delicate. Max used thin materials, such as lace and silk, to create flowing feminine silhouettes. Even the color palette had a hint of femininity etched in the details. The collection reflected a palette of soft pinks, whites, blacks and occasionally, blues. To connect with his “femme fatale” theme the beauty look was simplistic. Strong brows, highlighted cheeks and nude shadows dominated the show.
There is a subtle sexiness to this collection. I was gaga over the leather paired with lace combos and the ankle-strapped flats that each model wore.
Onto the celeb sightings! We spotted Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross, the uniquely gifted songstress Estelle, DJ KISS, model Selita Ebanks, Jessica White, Dania Ramirez and Daisy Fuentes soaking up the spotlight in the front row.
She attempted to steal the show in a hippie-esque skirt with a daring split that she paired with a simple black tank and leather booties. Cute, cute, cute!
