NY Fashion Week so far: My Thoughts

Boo, someday I will be able to go to fashion week. I need to start making some celebrity friends, or my friends need to start becoming celebrities.

Why does Betsey Johnson’s collection make me feel like I just walked into Limited Too (the adolescent/teen girl clothing store)? That and I can imagine the smell of the kids section of Bath & Body Works: smells cheap. Betsey, I know this show is for Spring, but I think we’ve gone a little too far with the pastel yellows, pinks and poof. But don’t worry, I still think you’re amazing.

As much of a problem I usually have with actors or musicians who come up with their own fashion label, I am EXTREMELY impressed with Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. collection. I would wear 80% of what was on the runway. She has impeccable taste and if I could give her a high five, I would. I always wonder though, about how involved in the design process she is. Is she a good sewer? Does she have a good understanding of the female anatomy? Or does she hire someone to make these detailed decisions for her? I bet there’s a man/woman behind the curtain that is “Gwen Stefani, Designer.”

Although not one of my favorite designers, Phillip Lim (an OC native) hit it head on. In the fashion world in my head of course. I live in a world where primary colors rule. I think that primary colors go with anything. And I guess Phillip Lim does as well. Maybe we’re fashion soul mates.

When Badgley Mischka came out with their ad featuring the Olsen twins a few years ago I was amazed. The girls looked lovely and in turn they made the clothing look lovely. Very elegant with a little bit of a wild edge. When I opened my Vogue magazine last month, who did I find in the B.M. ad? TERI HATCHER. And I guess it kind of makes sense. Their label has gone from elegant to old BCBG. Actually, you know what, i think they’ve switched identities. Those kidders.

I don’t know if this would be the most accurate depiction of the way I felt when I saw Heatherette’s collection, but it felt like I went on the It’s a Small World ride while high on ecstasy. And I loved it!
