Party Pics: Lily Aldridge, Poppy Delevingne and More Celebrate NYFW Day 7

It’s been exactly one week since the start of New York Fashion Week and lo’ and behold, the party scene is still going strong — the proof of which we saw throughout the city on Wednesday night.

For starters, there was the Miranda Eyewear Collection launch party, hosted by Michael Kors at the famed designer’s SoHo flagship store.  Much like the front row at Kors’ fall 2015 show earlier that day, the event drew a number of famous faces including actresses Kate Hudson and Allison Williams and models Lily Aldridge, Poppy Delevingne, Jessica Hart and Ming Xi.  Despite the blistering temperatures outside, the models couldn’t help but show off their spring style. Lily for one, paired her thigh-high black suede boots with a body-clinging stripped shift dress, while Poppy glowed in an ornate flower-patterned frock.

Modelinia AM Reads: Grace Mahary Talks Fitness and Fashion Week FOMO

Model and denim brands go hand-in-hand these days.  First there was Candice Swanepoel x MOTHER Denim and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Paige, and now Joan Smalls is teaming up with True Religion on a capsule collection that perfectly echoes her coveted off-duty style. The 16-piece collection will be available later this month, and as we learned from Vogue, Smalls is calling the designs “sexy and punky.” ~ Vogue

Well, it’s happened: Taylor Swift and Kanye West are totally buds now.  After cozying up at the Grammys, the two musicians met for dinner at New York City gastropub The Spotted Pig on Tuesday.  Perhaps that Swift-West collaboration is happening after all. ~ Refinery 29

Unretouched photos of Beyoncé from her 2013 L’Oréal ad campaign have gone viral, and while it’s not exactly the Queen B we’re used to seeing, she’s still flawless in our eyes. ~ Complex

Hot on the heels of Adidas’s debut collection with Kanye West, Nike has announced it’s plans to launch a new eight-piece womenswear collection developed in collaboration with Japanese label Sacai.  For its first offerings, Sacai’s Chitose Abe turned to traditional Nike pieces and silhouettes, which she reworked to create functional yet feminine sportswear in bright colors, infused with her playful design signature.  Best of all, the collaboration is fronted by New York Fashion Week’s ultimate cool-girl, Binx Walton! ~ Business of Fashion

Well, that didn’t take long! It’s been less than a week since Alexander Wang’s gothic-inspired fall 2015 show and it appears that Rihanna has already copped a custom pair of the boots that made their way down the runway.  ~ Elle

She made her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut back in November and Grace Mahary‘s star has only continued to rise since then.  Backstage at the Creatures of the Wind show last week, we caught up with the latest ‘hot list’ model to talk fashion week FOMO and the items she’s always looking to steal from the runways. ~ Modelinia

NYFW Beauty How-To: Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Rebellious Beauty

In just three short seasons, Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier have firmly established Marc by Marc Jacobs as a brand that is fierce, conceptual and deeply connected with subculture. The duo kicked off their captainship of the brand with a BMX Ninja girls-inspired collection for fall 2014, followed by last season’s offerings, which channeled London’s rave culture. Now, for fall 2015, Bartley and Hillier are showcasing the brand’s rebellious spirit once again, this time channeling the Guardian Angels of the Eighties, if you can believe it.

Party Pics: Behati Prinsloo, Sara Sampaio and More Step Out for Nomad Two Worlds

Despite the slushy morning, Tuesday’s weather cleared up long enough at night for the fashion flock to strap on their most sizzling heels and toast the opening of Seminole Spirit — a new photography exhibition presented by Nomad Two Worlds.  Hosted by Russell James, Donna Karan and Chief of Florida’s Seminole tribe, James E. Billie, the art party drew a number of impressive catwalkers to Stephan Weiss Studio in the West Village, including supermodel Behati Prinsloo, who is featured in the collection shot by James.  While she may have been without her best accessory for the evening (of course, we’re referring to her husband Adam Levine), Behati impressed nonetheless, stepping in a cropped black Balenciaga jumpsuit and lace-up kitten heels.  Among the other models in attendance were Sports Illustrated Swimsuit stunners Sara Sampaio, Hailey Clauson, Kelly Rohrbach and Victoria’s Secret Angels Devon Windsor, Elsa Hosk and Martha Hunt among others.
