Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has Arrived!!

MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!!!!!!!!! I am attending the shows at the new fashion week venue, the Lincoln Center, as well as a few other locations like Milk Studios, as press for both Birmingham Magazine & my fashion blog, Southern Femme.

So far it has been an exhilarating, adrenaline pumping experience!  Lots of gorgeous pastels, neutrals, and minimalism for Spring 2011.  Enjoy my first day of shows, celebs, fashionistas, and more!!

AT LINCOLN CENTER

The Fashion Week ‘uniform’: fashionable dress in either black or a neutral shade paired with an open toe bootie or platform heel…and of course an ‘It’ bag.

Loved these guys!  They look so Rick Owens meets Alexander Wang…and not to mention they both had fabulous duffel bags in hand!

His precious fashionable colorful nerd look definitely stood out amidst the sea of black outside of Lincoln Center

AT CANDELA AT THE JANE HOTEL

The Trading Post for Spring 2011…the inspiration for this collection was the hybrid nature that trading creates between the indigenous & industrial worlds.

Great embroidered denim button down..

Beautiful sheer lace & paneled dress… with adorable oxfords

I want this army green jacket, vintage inspired lace dress, and skull head necklace!  The trend of masculine meets feminine is obviously here to stay.

So vintage. So colorful. So adorable.

Sexy & sparkly..what more does a girl need?!

Gorgeous right? I could so see Kate Moss or Alexa Chung sporting this look..

AT JESSICA SIMPSON IN HER SHOWROOM (DJED BY PETE WENTZ)…

Great basics for Spring from Jessica Simpson

Love the color block platform heels & the classic trench

AT MILK STUDIOS...

The fabulous Senior Market Editor of Vogue, Meredith Melling-Burke (love her Alexander Wang leopard mule wedges) & Vogue’s Fashion Market/Accessories Director, Virginia Smith

AT BILLY REID AT MILK STUDIOS

The Billy Reid presentation was one of my favorites, even if it was all menswear!  Loved the way he positioned the old doors & the wooden floors…I felt transported back to Alabama instantly & the Magic Hat beer didn’t hurt either :)

The Florence, Alabama designer showed a great mix of 1950’s trousers, letterman cardigans, vintage inspired leather jackets & blazers, and worn in oxfords & Ked-like sneakers.  It’s all so effortlessly cool & Southern.

AT MANDY COON AT MILK STUDIOS

The DJ turned designer, Mandy Coon has been called by everyone the next downtown designer…and after viewing her collection I wholeheartedly agree!  Her paper thin leather dresses, harem trousers, vivd artistic prints, and gorgeous Scandinavian draping all created a beautiful fashion wonderland.

AT LnA AT MILK STUDIOS

I have to say I’m obsessed with LnA’s tees!  They are sooo comfy yet still chic.  You can actually get yourself one at Etc. in Mountain Brook Village!

THE BEST DRESSED AT LnA….

C’est parfait!  All of my favorite fall trends…animal print, check.  great trouser, check. orange-red lipstick, check. and rocker bondage accessories, check.

WHAT I WORE ON DAY ONE OF FASHION WEEK

At Milk Studios wearing Diane von Furstenberg gold metallic harem pants, Bread and Butter striped tank (from Swank), Forever 21 boyfriend cardigan, Prada bronze & cork platform heels, red Chanel bag, vintage Gucci watch & Leonard watch.

MY ALWAYS CHICLY DRESSED FRIEND ELIZABETH

AT KIMBERLY OVITZ AT MILK STUDIOS

The stark minimalist designs of LA designer, Kimberly Ovitz were gorgeous & architectural against the winter white beams…it was like a fashion maze.

The looks were again all very Rick Owens inspired…obviously a huge trend for Spring 2011!  It’s the effortlessly cool and minimalist vibe that fashionistas will soon be seeking…

AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST MY FAVORITE STYLE DIRECTORKATE LANPHEAR OF ELLE MAGAZINE

The queen of effortlessly f*$#ing cool…Kate Lanphear.  AND she was SO NICE!!  Gotta love great, unique style & a kind demeanor!  Spotted her again last night at the bar at The Jane Hotel.

MUCH MUCH MUCH MORE TO COME!! RUNNING OFF TO LINCOLN CENTER!

AND LET ME KNOW Y’ALL’S FAVORITE COLLECTIONS! aka leave a comment below s’il tu plait :)
