NYFW SS17 RECAP

New York Fashion Week is one of the biggest events on the Fashion calendar, & this year designers had shall I say, “TOO MUCH SAUCE.” The themes shown within these Spring collections were pinstripe everything, athleisure, bold stripes, sliver surfer, ruffle palace, & western chic. This season a lot more designers were a part of the “SEE IT NOW, BUY IT NOW” experiment. This method allows customers to buy pieces right after the runway show. Coming Spring 2017 we have a lot to look forward too. Here are a few collection that I loved & some that I could have did without. Hope You Enjoy !!! xoxo

Christian Siriano

Absolutely lovedddddd this bold collection, Siriano’s collection was my top favorite. Christian Siriano even had a couple of plus sized models in his show! Great way to show off his versatility!!!

Adam Selman

Adam Selman always gives me something to look forward too. I love anything pinstripe and textured so basically I wanted everything in his collection. 

YEEZY

I love me some Kanye West but this collection was a bit basic to me. I heard he had some of the top fashion editors waiting in the heat for his show to start. BIG NO NO. Besides those issue the collection had some good outerwear pieces and shoe wear. I am not a fan of these clear thigh high boots are a bit too hot for me.  

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren ‘s collection are always phenomenal !!! This season he gave us “Wild Wild West.” Bold patterns , fringe and fur were a key factor in Mr. Lauren’s line. The accessories though!!!!!! Love this man!!!

Reem Acra

Reem Acra had some great pieces, I love this fairy tale vibe I’m getting from this collection. These collection had an effortless vibe to it. 

Xuly Bet

YASSSSSSS to these African Prints !!! Must add this designer to my book of favorites. I loved this collection, very bold, fun & in your face. 

Zimmermann

Ruffle Paradise is what I want to name this collection. I live for these ruffles, so playful & airy. Everything about this collection was so feminine and elegant. Do you see these lace up boots.  

Rodarte

The detail on these pants are EVERYTHING!  I need these added to my wardrobe ASAP! Love the sheer tops and fringe studded leather jacket too.  

Alexander Wang X Adidas Original

Alexander Wang collection was very sexy with a side of sporty. The crisscross detail was my favorite. Being that this collection was in collaboration with Adidas I feel for the athleisure wear movement. 

Cushnie Et Ochs

Cushnie Et Ochs presented a very grown & sexy collection. I love sexy silhouettes on the runway, &  this collection was that plus more. 

Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone can through with the grunge/sport looks. I love an over-sized shirt & pinstripe suit. Only issue is that this collection was a little too dark for my liking.  

Rosie Assoulin

Rosie Assoulin line was giving me “Fun in The Sun,” vibes. Loved this presentation of Rosie Assoulin SS17 line. Included everything from ruffles, obre gowns to over-sized sets. So playful & cute! Loved everything about this collection!!! 

Brandon Maxwell

LOVEEEEEE this collection & designer!!!! MANY MANY  beautiful silhouettes and cuts.The COLORS were so on point!!!!  So sexy & elegant. I love with gowns are overly sexy & these pieces had just the perfect amount of sexy. I know I will see a lot of these looks on red carpets. 

DKNY

Athleisure in full effect at the DKNY SS 17 show. Love the oversize jumpsuit and sweaters. This collection just makes me want to dressy active & casual wear. The sheer outerwear pieces are sick!!!! 

2016 MTV Video Music Awards

It was All About Badgal RiRi !!!!! We know we never miss a Rihanna video, this award was well deserved!!!! She performed in four set rocking four bad ass looks. My favorite was the bashment scene !!! To make the night perfect Rihanna rocked a Alexandre Vauthire couture dress has Drake presented her with the Michael Jackson Vanguard award!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Bubble Gum Pink goddess: Hood By Air body suit, Comme des Garcons pink fuzzy sneakers and Cutler & Gross Classic Jackie O Shades   2. Dance Hall Queen: Adam Selman t-shirt backwards, a Rosamosario Fur-Trimmed Bra & Alexandre Vauthier trousers. 3.Gothic Trap: Vetement gloves and waist high boots.

Queen Beyonce gave us a heart stopping performance and graced us with these three bold looks.  A YolanCrus gown lace and sheer frock with embellished appliqué flowers. A golden Elie Saab  jumpsuit and a sheer crystallize feathered gown by Francesco Scognamiglio.

Worst dress goes to Rita Ora and Cassie. Rita wore Marc Jacob and Cassie wore a Balmain blazer and Gucci high waist pants. Too costume looking for my taste, Cassie could have wore a different color wig. Rita leather jacket sheer feather dress was too much paired together.

Loved these dapper man that Slayed in their fits. Ty Dolla $ign,Jidenna,  and Future

This year marked 15 yrs since Aaliyah has past and Fabulous rep the same jersey she wore. That’s Love!!!!!!!!!!

Loved this Georges Chakra jumpsuit on Haley Baldwin ,  Love this Moschino 2 piece on Stella Maxwell & Tinshe looked bomb in the beautiful red Juan Carlos Obando set. ❤

Loved this wet look on Kim & this vintage John Galliano dress. Naomi always slay rocking this Michael Costello dress, adored her glittery red lips and Amber looked all about her business in this Tom Ford suit, classy but sexy.

Justine Skye wore this playful Missoni fringe piece, Nicki Minaj was show off her curves in this Bao Tach gown, & I love this simple pant and top on Joan Smalls.

SHIT IT DOWN!!!!! Rihanna ended the night in this beautiful custom green fringe jumpsuit by  Limpasse Boutique!!!
