Anna Sui‘s highly anticipated show was so colourful and fun. With models adorned with floral turbines, super red lips, bright popping colours and her signature 40’s meets 70’s style glamour. Here is gorgeous gap-toothed model Lindsay Wixson in an intricate lace dress, and Karlie Kloss channeling her inner vixen at Anna Sui.

Overall, the collection was totally brilliant. LOVING the crisp whites, long flowing maxi gowns, stunning sequin numbers and the super sexy prints.
Is there anything Rachel can’t do?!
Diane Von Furstenberg was another coveted show that saw A-listers flocking to the Lincoln Centre. Celebrity stylist and reality TV star Rachel Zoe was sitting directly in front of the media pit, accompanied by her hubby Rodger Berman. Her eyes were glued to the show, making us wonder which of her celeb clients will soon be decked out in DVF?!


Diane also had MEGA fashion designer Valentino Garavani in attendance. He happily posed for photos, exclaiming how incredible he thought the DVF show was. Now that’s some fabulous feedback!



At Tommy Hilfiger, Aussie actress Melissa George and her friend Russell Simmons (Chairman and CEO of Rush Communications, co-founder of hip-hop music label Def Jam Recordings) were stealing the limelight, whilst other front row sitters included contributing Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley, Lorenzo Martone (Marc Jacob’s ex- boyfriend), and stunning actresses Malin Akerman and Abbie Cornish.


IMG model Caroline Winberg and creative director of Mia Piaci, Gianpaolo Girardello posing with the brand’s 24k gold clutch! The full collection will debut in Spring 2012 and will be exclusively manufactured in the Riviera Del Brenta, just near Venice in the north of Italy. How luxe is that?!


Jill Stuart created a massive buzz with her eye-popping, softly-flowing pleated dresses which were effortlessly stunning.
