One thing the cold weather elicited in New York fashion week guests was a flair for layering. A guest at the Michael Kors show layered a turtleneck and plaid dress under a trench coat, but kept it from getting too conservative by cinching her coat with a leather belt and adding a nose ring and multiple earrings. Also: necklaces over turtlenecks are A Thing now. Celine bag.

High Style and Street: Veronika Heilbrunner at Stephane Rolland SS2015

Veronika Heilbrunner at Stephane Rolland SS2015

Harper’s Bazaar Germany editor Veronika Heilbrunner always looks great throughout fashion week, but this was my favorite outfit of hers during couture. She took a diaphanous floral Erdem dress and layered it over a white turtleneck, black leggings and sneakers. What a cool mix of high style and street.

Irene Kim at Tory Burch

I still remember this bitterly cold morning last February. Model Irene Kim handled it with style, wearing a black leather jacket like a cardigan under an oversized fur coat. The white dress underneath is a nice sign of spring.

Lady in Red: Natalie Joos in Valentino

Natalie Joos in Valentino, Outside the Show SS2015I like how Natalie Joos of Tales of Endearment can take new clothes, like this red mini dress by Valentino, and give them her own vintage-y spin. She brings out the ’50s styling in the dress by pairing it with a red headscarf and shades.

More Celebrating: Justin O’Shea at Veronika Heilbrunner at Valentino SS2015

Justin O'Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner, After Valentino SS2015

One of the guys – Pier of Models Jam – thought it would be a good idea if we set up our own “photo pit” in the Tuileries to catch all the models as they went by. Pier and his Italian photographer comrades started with three chairs and a tripod. More photographers gathered alongside them, then a bunch of tourists formed at the sidelines, and before you know it we had created a sort of huge arena, or “studio,” as we called it, in the middle of the Tuileries. Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner danced it up for the cameras. Such a fun moment.
