• Real Style: Mercedes Benz Spring 2013 Fashion Week Day 1

    While I was off attending shows, Fashion Bomb photographer Marta McAdams was on the scene, capturing chic moments with stylish attendees.

    Take a look:

    These friends sizzled in a patterned outfit, Céline bag, and YSL belt on the left and a Givenchy accented ensemble on the right. Fashion Week goers certainly cling to labels, but always add their own unique spins, as these two display.

    Kitty popped in a hot pink maxi skirt, accented by a floral blouse. Cute!

    Charie looked positively gorgeous in a black blazer and top, along with a pair of printed wide leg trousers. Her eye liner and red lip only added to her allure. Hot!

    Black on black is always chic, and Karl knew the score! He worked a black top, boots, and pants. His main accessory? His mohawk.

    Marshana also bet on all black, made unique by swaths of floating pink fabric.

    Ade celebrated her birthday in a fun sequined top, urging everyone in attendance to “Say No to Drugs.”

    Jean Claude and Sai of the blog Because I am Fabulous always come ready to be photographed! Sai’s green turban and sunglasses added an unexpected quirkiness to her regal printed gown. I’m loving Jean Claude’s sophisticated facial hair!

    Martin and Rosemary also came to be snapped. Their African printed pieces certainly add interest to their looks.

    This young lady embraced chic simplicity in a white top and black skirt, uplifted by a Tiger Print Zara blazer.

    While some guests are more low key, others opt for opulence. Get into Eva’s Givenchy silver chiffon and sequin peplum jacket and Chanel Fall 2012 shoes. I am literally drooling at her hotness! She is not playing!

    Fashion Week ladies love turbans! This diva let a printed headpiece accent an all black look.


    And blogger and occasional Fashion Bomb contributor Joy Adaeze also chose the funky look, and went for comfort in two toned oxfords.

    Kwasy skewed cool in printed pants and a preppy blazer.

    And lastly, these three ladies truly went for classic chic, in shifts and reasonable heels.
    As you can see, Fashion Week outfits can be relaxed or buttoned up, goth or glam. The only rule at Lincoln Center is to dress according to your mood and personality. You can’t go wrong!
