So it's day one at the tents, and you know the Fashion Bomb is in the building:
Keeping it simple yet saucy, I threw on a Diane von Furstenberg Bolero, Zachary's Smile High Waisted Black Skirt, and Jenny Dayco Jewels. I also decided to dye my hair dark for fall...it's gonna take some getting used to!
Anyway, the BCBG Max Azria show was amazing! It featured Grecian style ruched dresses in flowing fabrics, forgiving enough for any girl from the rail thin to round.
The collection was dominated by gray and beige jumpers and dresses, but pops of blue, hot pink, and green lightened up the mood. Another mood elevator: Spying newcomer Arlenis Pena stomping the catwalk!
I can't wait to see her in more shows!
The rest of the day is pretty chill, though I do plan on stopping into Rubin Singer and Nicole Miller. Then off to my party tonight! If you're in NYC, I hope to see you there!
*Speaking of Ms. Pena, WWD reports today that the Dominican Beauty was recently signed to Lancome...
....Odile Roujoul, president of Lancome says, "Arlenis possesses beauty, intelligence, charm and compassion...we knew she would be a wonderful addition." [WWD]
...looks like The Fashion Bomb didn't win Best Style and Fashion Blog. The honors went to Afrobella and Scandalous Beauty. Welp. It was great to be nominated?? Hey, and at least they had a Fashion Category this year! Thanks to all who voted!!! Peep the rest of the winners here.
*Pssst, I'm already capturing lots of Real Style:
Stay tuned next week for a full rundown including the next installment of Fashion Bomb TV!
*Check out a preview of Tracy Reese's Spring 2009 RTW collection:
Can't wait for her show on Sunday!
