Deena Abdulaziz always looks perfectly turned out, even in hot weather. She wore a crisp white top with cut outs and lightweight wool culottes to the Prabal Gurung show on a very hot day in New York.

Backless Top, Outside Donna Karan SS2015

It’s true: you can actually expose your skin to the air this week without fear of frostbite. Who knew this day would ever come?! A top with a few strategic cut outs is a good way to ease into the idea of warm weather after a grueling winter.

Nausheen Shah at Issey Miyake FW2015

Big coats with beautiful draping were noticeable everywhere this past fashion week season, including a plaid and dusty pink Johanna Ortiz coat seen on Nausheen Shah. Look for more come fall – or layer a lightweight one on top of an all white outfit right now.

Met Gala 2015: View From the Mark Hotel

The Met Gala, one of the biggest parties of the year on the charity circuit, is quickly becoming the Oscars of the East Coast. Many of the celebs and models in town for the ball prep themselves at the Mark Hotel, which we staked out last night for a view of the fashion. This year’s Costume Institute exhibit China: Through the Looking Glass meant that many of the guests dressed in Chinese-inspired fashion. In some cases designers had been working with some of the bold faced names for months to create looks for this one night.

Here’s a new perspective from the Mark Hotel of all the celebs leaving for the gala last night – click through for a slideshow of my photos:

Tropical Punch: Adriana Abascal at Issey Miyake FW2015

 

Tropical prints like this Tracy Reese skirt on Mexican actress Adriana Abascal are a refreshing pop of color to usher in the warm weather. I also like how she mixed it with multicolored Jimmy Choo shoes, a blue clutch and blue sunglasses without looking too matchy-matchy.

Culottes and a Fringe Bag, Outside Elie Saab

With spring fully upon us, I am definitely feeling the need for some culottes. Skinny jeans were nowhere to be found outside the shows this season, and as hard as it is to pry oneself away from a trusty standard, it’s time to start wrapping one’s mind around a different silhouette like this one.

Saskia de Brauw at Mugler FW2015

I love how top model Saskia de Brauw combines different layers with such panache. She exited the Mugler show in Paris wearing an oversize gray coat, skinny scarf tied at the neck, oxford and a shirt dress. And yes, that is a bike helmet in her hand. After walking the runway, she just biked home like a regular Parisian!

Caroline Issa at Kenzo FW2015

It may not be warm enough to ditch that outer layer just yet, but at least we can switch from black to blue for a more springlike look, as Caroline Issa did with a belted coat at the Kenzo show in Paris.

Long White Sweater and Sheer Skirt, Outside Cedric Charlier FW2015

Another long white sweater, this time on a guest at the Cedric Charlier show. Not only is it great with a sheer skirt underneath, it looks super comfy.

Leila Yavari at Carven FW2015

Such a cool look on Leila Yavari at the Carven show in Paris – and a good example of how ’90s grunge has been repurposed with a more sophisticated edge for 2015.
