The top trends at New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 have everything to do with shimmery metallics, luxurious textures, military details, and '90s references. And that's just the beginning. Designers like Tibi, Proenza Schouler, and Jason Wu looked to Winter whites, supplied us with new (feminine) takes on the suit, and delivered our latest handbag craze by way of slim, structured clutches and crossbody bags. We've broken it down — standout trend by standout trend — so see our top 10 straight from New York Fashion Week's Fall '13 runways now.
It's hard not to start thinking about our Winter wardrobes during fashion week, even though the sun in still shining and the weather is (mostly) warm in the southern hemisphere. Designers in New York and London have presented a delicious crop of Autumn/Winter wares for 2013, so the Sugar editors are going to strike while the iron's hot and nominate the standout looks that are inspiring some pre-season shopping. Sure, that exact Burberry trench won't hit shelves for another six months — but that won't stop us from getting the look now (and often for less). See! There is an upside to us Aussies shopping out-of-season.
During New York fashion week, the hair and makeup sent down the runway is often just as important as the clothing. While it might not be the first thing people look at, the skilled creations makeup artists and hairstylists devise is definitely worth a second look. From twisted ponytails to metallic eyes, get inspired by Fall 2013's most memorable beauty moments.
Before New York Fashion Week completely escapes our short term memory, we thought we'd zoom in on what the people who matter wore the shows. Yes, the front row is always filled with Hollywood a-list types, and the street style snappers go mad for the peacocks parading outside the tents, but we have to be honest with you and confess that it's the industry insiders that we're most interested in style-stalking. From the industry's all-black uniform to the Man-Repelling goodness from Leandra Medine to Anna Wintour's signature frock + fur + jewels routine, we've got it all in one easy-to-click place! Ready?
During the international Fashion Week season there’s no rest for the stylish! When New York Fashion Week wrapped up at the end of last week, busy stars jumped straight on a plane to take their front row seats at some of London’s most exciting shows. Home-grown style heroes sass & bide showcased their latest collection to a crowd that included Olivia Palermo and Les Misérables director Tom Hooper, while Mulberry’s butterfly-filled show was attended by the label’s muses, Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey. Kate Bosworth also rubbed shoulders — literally — with One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson when they were seated next to each other at the Topshop Unique show. There have been plenty more stars at LFW so click through to see them all, and get the full runway reports from Fab and backstage beauty from Bella.
Rachel Zoe's models never hit the runway without some element of glamour. This year it was all about re-creating a young Erin Wasson or Kate Moss look, including a "badass lip" as requested by Rachel herself — which translated into an ombré style. Models were made to look fresh-faced and glowy with BB cream and bronzer, while the hair was cool, casual, and weekend-chic. Go backstage to see the magic unfold before the show.
Fashion Week, the Grammys, premieres . . . With a line-up like that, we were always bound to have a veritable feast of fashionable outfits to covet this week. And let us tell you, the reality exceeded expectations in a big way. Rihanna rendered us speechless when she hit the red carpet in an Azzedine Alaia gown at the Grammys — we reckon this might be the best she's ever looked — and Miley Cyrus cemented her status as a fashion icon on the rise with her too-cute (but so cool) Disney getup at the Marc Jacobs show. And Olivia Palermo did what she does best: gave us a serious case of wardrobe envy. There are seven more amazing outfits to check out, so get clicking!
