Calvin Klein showed his Autumn/Winter 2010 show in New York yesterday with big names once again in attendance but it was the after party dresses which caught our eye. Kate Bosworth, Naomi Watts, Melissa George came to the after party in New York looking great all in designs by the host of the evening. Helena Christensen looking great in a strapless dress but we are not too sure about the straps at the top? AnnaLynne McCord the star from 90210 also looked gorgeous in a tight fitting pastel pink dress. Once again the stars pulled out the stops for a Calvin Klein party, he never fails to get the big names looking great.

One face that keeps cropping up at all the New York Fashion week shows is Olivia Palermo. The Socialite, Reality Star and Elle magazine employee has been spotted at TIBI, Preen, Badgley Mischka and Ports 1961 just to name a few but its Olivia’s wardrobe we have been watching. As always her wardrobe is one to die for with her effortless looks and amazing eye for fashion she just simply hits the right notes every time. Here are a few of the looks she’s been seen in this Fashion Week.

We spotted Katherine Jenkins working the Brits theme in an Alexander McQueen number adorned with the queen’s portrait and union-jack – a very patriotic and fitting tribute to the designer. Mummy to be, Denise Van Outen showed-off her cute baby-bump in a chiffon black maxi evening dress; elegant and chic. We were extremely happy to have Cat Deeley back and she wore a stunning mini-dress and accessorized with zip-front sandals and a classic box clutch. Alesha Dixon looked dazzling in her thigh-high mini dress which was nipped in on the waist with a black belt with crystal detail and amazing orange heels.
Alexandra Burke played it safe in a red floor-skimming maxi evening gown, It was classy, yes, but she would have got more attention had she had appeared in something more contemporary. Alesha Keys on the other hand looked hot in a striking black, bold-shouldered Balmain dress and paired it up with peep-toe Louboutins with Leona Lewis stepping-out off her comfort zone and rocking sci-fi chic in an asymmetric sharp-shouldered silver cocktail dress that was teamed with neon pumps.
Black lace and satin was quite a hit on the red carpet, with stars Pixie Lott, Florence Welch and Kylie Minogue making an appearance in lace detailed evening dresses. Pixie showed-off her fabulous legs in a sexy and sophisticated LBD while Florence Welch wore a long satin evening gown with an all-over-lace catsuit underneath and before that she had wowed the crowds in a barely-there metallic mini. We like!
We also loved Kylie but felt like her dress downed her a little – would have preferred something more figure-hugging or a shorter version of the dress – or maybe a simple up-do of her hair would have proved just the solution.
Other red-carpeter’s who’s style we liked included Gabriella Cilmi, Lily Allen who wore a daring high-neck Chanel gown, with intricate panelling and managed to scoop her first Brit last night – so proud! and Lisa Snowdon who had come in fresh from shooting her first round of M&S ads and posed for the camera’s in a monochrome mini-dress. As for GaGa-style, it was nothing out of the ordinary and we have come to expect nothing less from the star However – a massive well-done for picking-up three Brits last night after a fantastic performance that was dedicated to Lee McQueen!

This season, practicallity was at the heart of BCBG’s collection and unlike previous Azria collections, it was more groundered and less fantasitical than before. It had endless variations of simple, wearable chic pieces and there were alot of geometric lines, colour bloking and layering in the techiques that formed the basis of the collection.
The colour palette was not too complex with a blend of hard-neutrals and featured the occasional sequinne, tulle and sheer pleat here and there. Each look was light and moved with the slightest breeze and we particularly loved the asymmetrical-hemmed silk dresses and long sleeved cape dresses. All-in-all, it was a clean, sophistcated and modern collection that had a lot to choose from and we’d buy every piece from the collection if we had to.
