Fashion Week Roundup: The Latest From The Tents

by guestofaguest · February 17, 2010

Miss out on any Fashion Week shows? Not us--we sent our tireless interns to nearly everything, and had them report back to us. Below is a roundup of some of our favorite shows from the past few days...

The GofG team logged miles (often in very high heels), attending not only the big tent shows, but also presentations all over Manhattan. Believe it or not (and some of us are choosing NOT to believe it), Fashion Week isn't over yet, so be sure to keep checking back for more coverage of shows and afterparties!

G - Star Raw Fall 2010 Runway Show

Yesterday's G-Star runway show was full of the B and C list  celebs we've come to expect this fashion week, like Matthew Settle, Adam Lambert, newly skinny Kelly Osbourne, John Legend, Peaches Geldof, Mena Suvari and Liv Tyler. The clothing was bright, fun and a good break from the newly revived hobo chic we've seen at so many shows this season. The euro designers did not disappoint with their sporty layering and primary bursts of color in luxe leather and classic wool. Beside the lasers and larger than life runway, the most interesting thing about the show might have been the giant screen that broadcast the real-time tweets of celebrities in attendance.

Victoria Beckham Fall 2010 Collection

Victoria Beckham's Roland Mouret influences seem to be waning in her most recent collection.  While the signature sharp shouldered wasp waist dress was in effect, it was tempered by the soon to be ubiquitous full length day dress and several other new shapes. Beckham is always the gracious host and she greeted each editor personally before the show started. If she was kissing up it seemed to work with many fashion powerhouses tweeting and blogging their approval.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 Runway Show

Marc's go to list of fashion week musts were in full effect this season: pre-show buzz about his decision to nix celeb invites, a quirky cool girl line that Chloe Sevigny doubtlessly has on order already, and an after party that was literally heads and shoulders above the competition. "Somewhere over the rainbow" set the beat for models to walk in tweeds and fur. The feel was stuffy professor meets Ingrid Berman and the trend is sure to be a hit this fall while early adopters start now and suit up to fight the final weeks of spring.

Derek Lam Fall 2010 Runway Show

Giddyup Anna! Derek's fall show showcased Mae West meets Old West with the leather looks we've seen everywhere in full attendance. Anna Wintour perched in the front row sans sunnies and looking very PETA unfriendly.

The boys of bling were at it again with a silvery, shiny take on nightlife dressing. The full length gowns and sassy short numbers will take many a socialite from Costume Institute Gala to Rose Bar come fall.

Elie Tahari Fall 2010 Runway Show

Elie took viewers on a magic carpet ride with his worldy women of fall. Big names come out to see the leather and fur theme seen at so many shows this season, but one wonders if "pants' will catch on again or if the smart trousers on Tahari's runway will transition into yet another patterned legging, jegging or tights come fall.

Perry Ellis Fall 2010 Runway Show

Gossip Girl's Matthew Settle was front row at Perry Ellis, and that was about it for celebrity attendance. The show got off to a bumpy start as there was a little trouble filling the front row. Once it started though, the collection was a success, and the designers got a lot of love at the end of it.

Vera Wang Fall 2010 Runway Show

Ms. Wang loves the dramatic and her icy roots as a figure skater came through with the ethereal set outre accessories that both walked in the show and sat in the audience. Her trademark purple was to be seen, as was another brunette spitfire's - Snooki sized poofs dominated the delicate model features.

Chris Benz Fall 2010 Presentation

Military accents were co-opted by Benz to provide a wardrobe for high school bad girls done plaid. The tough outerwear was rendered in bright colors and this fashion week's must have - Kelly Osborne - was all smiles after the collection. When the Prince of Darkness' daughter approves you know you've hit your naughty mark.

Zac Posen Fall 2010 Runway Show

Posen may be in the poor house but his customers are on their way to the disco in short dresses that showcase his usual sculpting but add a retro flair. With the 80's overdone to death, hat tip to Posen for giving a girl dresses to dance in that don't scream "Balmain knockoff"

Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2010 Runway Show

Narcisco went dark and dramatically not red carpet ready with a collection that has his asymmetrical earmark but ventures into far moodier territory than usual. Ombres and solids in a palate best labeled pumpkins in the dark will fit in perfectly with fallen leaves and fireplaces once October hits.
