3BM Best Bits: NYFW SS 13

One down another three to go. 

As London Fashion Week kicks off, we round up our best bits from NYFW which wrapped up, across the pond, on Thursday.


Christian Grey Turns Muse
In a most un-springlike twist, the New York catwalks were awash with leather, harnesses and black lace - do we detect a little Fifty Shades inspiration?! From harnesses at BCBG Max Azria to leather and lace at Jason Wu, Christian and Ana were clearly mood board staples...

Catwalk Catfights at Zac Posen
Emotions clearly run high during fashion week when the world's fashionistas are dashing around from show to show existing on coffee, cigarettes and three hours' sleep. Irrespective of that, we weren't quite expecting slapping at Zac Posen but slapping's what we got...

When fire marshals made last minute adjustments to the seating arrangements at the Zac Posen show, sixty seats were unexpectedly scrapped leading to one very angry French fashion journo and one very slapped American PR. Jalouse Editor, Jennifer Eymere, apparently followed the slap up with the utterance "Don't f*** with the French".

Seems that maybe the PR's having the last laugh though having just sued Eymere for US$1million for assault, battery, emotional distress, slander and libel...

From Dawson's Creek to Fashion Week
It seems it's a year of firsts for Katie Holmes. First divorce, first time taking Suri in a cab and now first time showing at NYFW. Choosing not to stage a catwalk show but rather to keep it low key with an intimate presentation of fifteen looks to just 150 people, Katie seemed to be shying away from making this yet another media circus. We were particularly taken with the button-fronted black maxi dress and long-line tuxedo jacket and the ruby red short shorts and buttery camel-coloured suede cape. Well played Katie!

Surprise Catwalk Guests
Naomi Campbell at Zac Posen and Liberty Ross at Alexander Wang, it was a week of unexpected catwalk appearances. Campbell who also joined Twitter on the day of the show (and to date already has almost 20,000 followers...), drew gasps of excitement when she stormed down the runway.

Liberty Ross walked for Alexander Wang, her first appearance since Kristen-gate broke seven weeks ago. Looking beautiful but fierce in a white outfit with cut-outs, Ross definitely sent out the message that she was back in business.

Harper Made her Catwalk Debut
While it wasn't her first time sitting front row (it was her third time nach...), Harper Beckham made her catwalk debut last week at the tender age of just fourteen months...


We predict that it won't be long before she's strutting out in front of Anna Wintour & co...Looking chic and perfectly put together, Harper accompanied her Dad to the Victoria by Victoria Beckham show and then perched on her Mum's lap while she sat transfixed by the models stalking the runway. We've said it before and we're sure to say it again, what would we give to be Harper?! Sigh...

Indian Princess Met Daisy Buchanan at Marchesa
Always a show we look forward to with baited breath, Marchesa was our absolute stand out collection of NYFW this year. Complete over the top escapism, these were red carpet gowns heavily inspired by India but with a light sprinkling of Great Gatsby-esque chic. Rich jewel tones and intricate gold embroidery pervaded but our favourite pieces were those embellished with fringing and cast in twenties silhouettes. Breathtakingly stunning, we can't wait to see Hollywood's elite parading them down a red carpet in the very near future.

ADR got Snappy & had a Fashion Shower
It's just a matter of weeks until we can finally get our mitts on what promises to be the best H&M collaboration for a while (and based on our previous H&M collaboration excitement, that's clearly saying something...). Anna Dello Russo for H&M looks to be a mind-bendingly amazing menagerie of uber-fab accessories. In New York last week, ADR rocked a pair of crocodile sunnies and blingtastic A earrings from the collection sending our accessories lust into overdrive.

And as if that wasn't enough, ADR has also released a video celebrating the launch of the collaboration where she models the collection while singing about her ten fashion rules. We have this on a loop over at Mouse Towers... PURE GENIUS!


London, you have a LOT to live up to!
