FashionNYFW SS2015: Top 5 Runway Shows

NYFW SS2015

It’s that time again – Fashion Week! This week we take on our top 5 favorite shows from NYFW. Check them out below!

MONIQUE LLL

Monique Lhuillier
Monique, normally known for her dresses, delved into the world of separates for spring 2015, and did she blow us away! According to Style.com writer Emily Farra, her inspiration stemmed from a trip to the Bahamas. “When the sun rose over the ocean, the sky turned beautiful shades of blush and lavender, and there was this reflective quality to the water,” she explained. “I wanted to instill that sparkle in every piece.” This collection is dripping with that island sparkle in a way that is totally captivating and unique. Though she did finish the show with her normal foray of evening gowns, it was her separates the struck our heart-strings most, making this our favorite collection of NYFW!

Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan
Silk beaded track suit? Check. Gorgeous lace gown with sheer detail? Check. Floral ballgowns you would die over? Check. Nareem Khan’s collection is made for the red-carpet starlets to wear, and we can’t wait to see them wear it (imagine Blake Lively in that nude sparkle jumpsuit. Right?). We loved his take on the sportswear trend with his beaded sweaters and silk track pants. It was a beautiful synthesis of the fast-growing trend and his normal evening wear looks.

Cynthia Rowley

Cynthia Rowley
Cynthia Rowley’s new collections is, in her own words, “about making fitness pretty instead of making pretty sporty.” And it did just that. Blow up mod prints on ’60s trapeze dresses were the real winners for us, and the pastel wave fabric came in a close second. What pulled everything together was the high-heeled gladiator mules Rowley paired with the collection. We want. Now.

Oscar De La Renta

Oscar de la Renta
Be prepared to see the red carpets littered with looks from Oscar’s spring 2015 collection. Every piece reminded us of the feeling of a perfect spring picnic, transformed into evening wear. Fiercely feminine silhouettes trounced down the runway – with gingham prints in pink, baby blue, and black transitioning into full force florals. Our favorites were the midriff matching set looks, especially the gold sequin bandeau/ball skirt set with the ostrich feather embroidery.

Zac Posen

Zac Posen
Zac Posen’s vision for this spring is black and white, and red all over. The pure beauty of Posen’s collection is in the details, each piece was tailored to perfection. Though simple, you can tell this collection was well thought out, every curve, contour and boning. Bravo, Mr. Posen, for bringing us a minimal and simple way to feel sexier this spring.

CelebrityIt Girl: Mindy Kaling!

ItGirlMindyKaling

We first fell in love with her as the sassy Kelly Kapoor on The Office, but now we absolutely adore her as Mindy Lahiri on the ridiculously funny and charming The Mindy Project! Not only does this gorgeous comedienne star in both comedies, but she also writes the hilarity she plays! Mindy has taken Hollywood by storm, becoming a positive household name and role model for both girls and women alike! Move over funny guys, we’ve got a new sheriff in town! We can’t wait to see what else this beauty has in store for us!
