Photographer Zanita Morgan paired a bright red coat with camouflage at the Lacoste show for a dynamic combination.
Hanne Gaby emerged from the Prabal Gurung show in ski goggles on the day after the blizzard. Love her! Close up of the goggles, after the jump.
Catalina Zuluaga and Kika Vargas wore coordinating beautiful silk VARGAS dresses that caught the wind outside the Prabal Gurung show in New York.
Justin O’Shea nimbly jumped through the snow in his bespoke lace-up boots outside the Victoria Beckham show. His graceful recovery, next page.
Mary Alice Stephenson, who has a really fun Twitter feed if you want to follow the fashion crowd, walked through the snow in open-toe stilettos, a black and white ombre fur and statement necklace. Close up of her snakeskin clutch and gold ring, after the jump.
These next few photos are in honor of Bill Cunningham, who loves to photograph fashionably dressed people hopping over puddles.
Anna Wintour may be high fashion, but that hasn’t stopped her from braving the elements like the rest of them. Outside the Victoria Beckham show, she forded a snow bank in flat rain boots worn with a tweed suit, blue and white fur top, and of course her trademark sunglasses.
Designers: here are some suggested trends for next winter’s NY fashion week: salting sidewalks and shoveling a clear path to the street. Don’t make Anna Wintour do this again.
Michelle Harper has the most amazing personal style that always seems to reference vintage, though her clothes are often by up-and-coming American designers. She’s like a 1920s flapper who’s been airlifted to modern times. At the Jason Wu show, she wore a black fur coat and a black turban with red lipstick, perfect for blowing a kiss in the snow.
Kate Lanphear, now the style director of T Magazine, bundled up for the Ruffian show at 9am the day after blizzard Nemo with a long black fur vest layered under a midnight blue coat. Her black beanie hat has a fur/faux fur pom pom, another micro trend that’s hitting now. Her companion is practically dressed for the cold with boots and a down coat. Much better than a few people who showed up at Lincoln Center in things like strapless gowns during a blizzard… yes, that happened!
Russian Tatler editor Anya Ziourova wore black and white, including an optic white fur jacket and black leather top, to yesterday’s Jason Wu show.
Miroslava Duma wore a beautiful Céline colorblock coat and pink knit hat to the Jason Wu show yesterday during the onset of the big snowstorm. She drew a huge crowd of photographers:
David Thielebeule, who recently moved from Allure to become fashion market and accessories director at WSJ, also wore blue and black to the first day of shows at Lincoln Center. He’s also sporting a cool new haircut with shaved sides that nods to ’90s punk. Men: take note.
Yesterday on the first day Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (the first day of school!), Natalie Joos wore a beautiful and colorful oversize cardigan to the Richard Chai Love show. Great how the modern idea of pixellation is applied to an old-school medium like chunky knitwear. She balances it out with a muted bag and flared corduroys.
