If there's one show worth waiting almost an hour on line for in the midst of New York Fashion Week, it's Alice + Olivia. We mean, we'd set up camp if it meant experiencing Stacey Bendet's whimsical designs within the dreamworld of her always-magical presentations. And so would every other well-heeled fashionista on the show circuit.
This season, Bendet unveiled her Fall 2019 collection inside the awe-inspiring Angel Orensanz Center, a former synagogue boasting Gothic architecture and serving as the perfect backdrop for the "Fantasia" themed affair. Indeed, when it comes to A+O, a Fashion Week show feels more like a party than a plain ol' presentation; the presence of plenty of A-listers doesn't hurt.
Olivia Culpo, Victoria Justice, Karrueche Tran, and the entire Young Hilton clan came out to support the designer and take in the fairy tale-worthy ensembles, which were complemented by sets covered in butterflies, red roses, and even sparkling snow. And though the atmosphere was Insta-worthy, the clothes certainly stole the show.
