Anya Ziourova and Leigh Lezark at Jason Wu

A fun moment outside the Jason Wu show with Anya Ziourova and Leigh Lezark. Leigh Lezark is in a look from Jason Wu’s fall 2014 runway. Gray is certainly on trend for fall.

Danielle Bernstein at BCBG SS2015

Blogger Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What mixed a leather fringe skirt with flats and a tee at the BCBG show yesterday. The pretty almond color of her skirt also figures prominently in a lot of the spring collections.

Maxi Skirt and Crop Top, Outside BCBG

Yesterday was the first day of school… and the first day of New York fashion week! I loved this look outside the BCBG show at Lincoln Center – it’s both classically ladylike and very modern.

Leaf Greener at Ulyana Sergeenko FW2014

Loved this sculptural Delpozo dress on Leaf Greener at the Ulyana Sergeenko couture show in Paris. Look for more architectural fashion that really makes a statement this fall. Detail shot of her lips earrings, after the jump. Her tiny bag is actually just an iPhone cover with a chain handle.

Anna Wintour at Schiaparelli

I was initially against the idea of the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” seeing it as a kind of slacktivism. But apparently many of those who take the challenge, in which you have to throw a bucket of ice water over your head or give $100 to benefit A.L.S. research, end up donating either way. Over $13M has been donated to ALS research since this fad started. Never one to ignore a trend, Anna Wintour has just taken the challenge and captured it on video. See the video here – or see her in her normal dignified work state, as at the Paris couture shows, above.

Pink and Black, Outside Dior Couture FW2014

One thing we’re already starting to see a lot of for fall 2014: skirts paired with ankle or mid-calf boots. They can be sexy stilettos like these, though a low or even flat heel works too.

Binx Walton, After Chanel FW2014

Little did we know when we spotted new model Binx Walton after the Chanel fall ready-to-wear show in Paris that she would be part of the label’s fall ad campaign as shot by Karl Lagerfeld. She layered an oversize black sweater with a silver padlock necklace and a sheer purple maxi skirt and mid-calf boots – a look that went well with the hair and makeup from the Chanel show. Close-up, after the jump.

Brooklyn Crab

In Maryland, you have not had a true taste of summer until you’ve eaten blue crabs coated in Old Bay and served with a pitcher of cold, cheap beer in a shack right on the water. You get to this place by boat (often the fastest way), and spend the better part of an afternoon picking chunks of crab meat out of cracked shells. And yes, it is worth the effort.

Could there be a place like this in New York?

Anya Ziourova at Schiaparelli FW2014

Anya Ziourova is one of the best dressed women on the fashion week scene, and certainly one of the best dressed pregnant women anywhere. Rather than sticking to maternity clothes, she adapts current fashion to her changing shape. At the Schiaparelli show in Paris, she wore a green top and skirt with zigzag trim. Close up of her Olympia Le Tan “Greater Love” book clutch, after the jump.
