From the cute to the downright outrageous, a little look at things that made us LOL during NYFW…
Rhianna’s new hairstyle is causing great controversy here. As far as we were aware the mullet is representable of cringe-worthy 1980’s moments we’d rather forget, so what makes it fashionable now? Perhaps RiRi is just incredibly fashion forward… Her Instagram has kept us satisfied during #Phasionweek with gorge photos from the Alexander Wang after-party on Saturday night, where she rocked a unique grunge-inspired dress. What outrageous style will this sexy star possibly indulge us with next?
All eyes on Harper
Following in her mum’s footsteps, it was always going to be inevitable that Harper Beckham would steal the show. The two year old fashionista sat intently on the front row during the Victoria Beckham SS’14 show in her darling Chloé dress. Harper is winning our hearts and with the capability of cracking Anna Wintour’s stern visage she goes down in our top NYFW memorable moments…too cute!
HBA go cray-cray on the runway
Hood By Air has defined itself as the new stand-out street style brand with the striking Boychild epitomising androgynous beauty. With artistic drag performances and gender boundaries blurred, anything goes with this innovative fashion label. The models looked ghetto fabulous and the overly bronzed faces..well we didn’t quite know what to make of those, controversial I guess could be the term, particularly on the model with albinism. Regardless, we are loving that HBA is shaking up the runway.
Stylists are making a punk statement this Spring/Summer with super slick and styled hair ruling the runway. Theysken’s theory, Hood By Air, Rag and Bone and Prabal Garung were just some of the designers that showcased this questionable trend. The greased down locks were a key look on the runway intended to give the appearance of effortless beach chic, but came across slightly more scary Mary. We’re still weary as to whether this simple look is going to catch on, but for those who haven’t got time to shampoo, at least you can defend your look is on trend.
Justin Bieber chillin’ with the ATL twins…say what??! You can almost see the beads of sweat running down Bieber’s face, his arms poised in defence. The trio attended the Opening Ceremony on Sunday. Forget the hype with 1D, with those angelic matching outfits I see the potential for a new major boyband. #watchthisspace
Party and Bullsh#t
DKNY hosted their 25th Birthday celebrations in style. Did you guys see the big yellow TAXI CAKE?! Even the models were getting a slice of the action. Campaign Face Rita Ora sassed-up the run way giving us life and if you thought that wasn’t enough Monday night saw her and do an energetic performance emblazoned in Donna Karen logos head to toe. Amaze Fashion Week moment.
Thom Brown: Insane fashion
Picture this: The Cure’s Robert Smith and the Joker’s love-child. White/Grey bird nest hair, smeared red lipstick and a crazed expression. Thom Browne has a pretty dark and vivid imagination, and this seasons NYFW show was no exception. The combination of overt Victoriana femininity with stark exaggerated tailoring is the talk of the town. We are personally loving the extremity of this look.
