Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week starts tomorrow…

Fashion Week The Fashion Bomb

….and Adriana and I can’t wait to bring you the best from the tents!

Here are a few things we’re looking forward to this season

1. Fashion’s Night Out


More than 700 designers and brands are offering discounts, music, and entertainment in an all night party designed to stimulate the fashion economy. While Adriana is deciding between Andre Leon Talley’s Live Fashion Quiz Show at Bergdorf Goodman or Anna Wintour’s autograph signing at Queen’s Center Macy’s,  I’ll be making rounds from Pieces Boutique in Brooklyn to Rachel Roy’s Pop Up Store Blow Out with Estelle. Wherever you choose to go, fashion will be running in the streets. We can’t wait!

2. Real Tent Style

Real Style Fashion Week

Some of the best fashion can be seen off the runway as fashionistas and fashionistos adorn themselves in the most creative ways.  I’ll be there with my Canon and Flip Video to capture it all.

3. Beautiful New Faces

R'el Dade and Jeneill Williams

We of course love Chanel, Arlenis, and Sessilee, but it’s also great to see new girls on the block. Be on the lookout this year for Jeneil Williams (left), a 5’9″ stunner who’s made cameos in Teen and Italian Vogue, and Texan R’el Dade who recently debuted on Valentino’s runway.

4. Shows

Fashion Show Fashion Week

We’re not 100% sure if Baby Phat is showing this year, but in case Kimora takes a year off to tend to her newborn baby and family, we still have lots of shows to dip into! Adriana and I have been confirmed for BCBG, Herve Leger, Christian Siriano, Nicole Miller, ARISE, and more. While the tents still hold their allure we secretly can’t wait for She by Sheree at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Stay tuned!

5. Parties!

Claire Dee Ricky

With the MTV Music Awards going down on the 13th, there will be an onslaught of celebrities and paparrazzi flash moments. We hope to report on all the after hours fun bringing you the hottest pix and fashion dish.

What do you look forward to seeing?

  1. I’m super excited about Fashion’s Night Out! I created a Facebook event and everything inviting my friends to come out with me. I plan to hit up the Tory Burch block party in the meatpacking district, as well as most of the dep’t stores in midtown (Bergdorf, Barneys, Saks, etc). For those of you who’ll be in NYC check out my link (click my name) for more great FNO itinerary ideas…there are tons!
