New York Fashion Week just wrapped up yesterday. And, as always, the best of American fashion was put on display and fashion enthusiasts across the country died over the beautiful pieces that adorned the lanky models who walked for some of the most reknown names in fashion.
Check out some of my favorite looks below and be sure to follow @nyfw on Instagram for some of the most beautiful photos and videos the past week!
The first Monday of May is my favorite Monday of the year because it’s Met Gala Monday!! Celebrities and fashionistas alike come together to celebrate the newest Costume Institute exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I love the Met Gala because it’s a chance for fashion geeks like me to salivate over some of the most beautiful couture, inspired by the exhibit’s theme.

This year’s exhibit is China: Through the Looking Glass and explores how Chinese aesthetics, art and culture has influenced Western designers and the pieces they create. The museum’s website describes the exhibit as “[h]igh fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery,” and that it “will feature more than one hundred examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear alongside Chinese art.
Some attendees really took the Chinese theme to heart and incorporated these looks in their ensembles, while others may have stayed away from the theme but still looked utterly gorgeous in their gowns. Take a look at my favorite looks below!
Elizabeth and James: Elizabeth and James does casual chic so well. This look is just perfect from the turtle neck to the cozy and comfy oversized sweater. Makes me want to curl up by the fire with a good book and some hot cocoa.
Nanette Lepore: To me this look is a perfect work outfit. The light color combined with the fun print of the top paired with the structured demure silhouette makes it both fashionable and professional!!
Boss: I love this dress because even though its such a simple silhouette, its a piece that makes you look twice. The beading, the structure, the fabric is all beautiful and quite sexy as well. The perfect dress for a night out with your love.
Bibhu Mohapatra: This dress is flawless. The color is like warm caramel, and I love the structure of the dress, from the peek-a-boo shoulders, to the structured bust, and the way the dress falls makes it elegant but sexy at the same time. Absolutely breathtaking!!
Marchesa: I always say that I should have been born in the ’20s so when I saw this collection, I was in LOVE. It was so hard for me to pick my favorite look, but this is definitely a fave because of the combination of the glittery and flirty top with gorgeously tailored wide-leg pants. Love!!
Michael Kors: I am in love with this look because it’s so fresh but it has great throwback elements from ’20s fringe to the prim Peter Pan collar. Love it!

London Fashion Week is the second of 4 fashion weeks that occur during fashion month. London has always been a great mix of edgy and feminine. The Spring/Summer 2015 collections followed this tradition of English fashion. From the gorgeous flirty florals with subtle cutouts at Erdem to the sleek pieces in soft white at Amanda Wakeley, London Fashion Week was the perfect balance of edgy and sexy yet flirty and fun!
