Presented by Style360 and held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City, the Bebe Black Fall 2012 fashion show attracted a packed house of editors, celebrities and fashionistas alike. The wonderful aspect to the Bebe brand is that these are well-made designs, that flatter the body, with attention to detail that many consumers can afford to purchase and enjoy. MTV's Snooki from "Jersey Shore" and Angela Simmons, daughter of rap mogul Russell Simmons (Rev Run) were spotted in the front row. I'll be the first to say, that the Bebe Black Collection had a very up-scale and mature vibe to it. As the playful, funky music began-- out came the first styles. Models featured a Gwen Stefani-type retro look with pin-curl rolled bangs, wavy hair, and a crimson red pout. My initial thought was "sexy secretary" as I noticed the demure hem-lines, but true to the Bebe sense of style -- I knew things were bound to heat up! After I was taken by the initial lady-like looks with a vampy twist, my next favorite was a leopard jacket paired with a skinny cropped pant and accented by a sassy red pointed-toe heel which was so chic! For a special occasion, party or event there were beautiful floor length dresses that hugged every curve of the body in a lush midnight blue velvet or sexy black lace with cut-out detailing.
Whether realizing it or not, accessories are just as important to fashion week as the garments being shown. A pair of shoes, a necklace, or a clutch can completely transform a look, so why not give accessory designers a pat on the back as well?
The Accessories Council, Style360 & Elle combined forces to create an event specifically focused on accessories and dubbed it: The Accessories Lounge. This took place yesterday at the Metropolitan Pavilion where we mingled with fellow bloggers and people in the press as well as learned about new, up-and-coming designers in the accessories market. They even featured a table with mounds and mounds of delicious cupcakes by TLC’s Cake Boss Chef Dana Herbert, to enjoy while taking a tour of the different designers’ presentations. And to top it all off, it even benefited B.R.A- the bra recycling agency.
The first person to stand on the catwalk just after 11 a.m. at today's Express Your Love Spring 2011 Fashion Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion sponsored by Style360 wasn't decked out in the freshest gear for the 2011 spring season. In fact, the person wasn't even a female. It was Neon Trees' lead singer Tyler Glenn, who sported a black mo-hawk, snow-white sunglasses, a slim-fitting purple velvet jacket, checkered grey pants tucked into black socks dotted with skulls and crossbones, and clunky, untied black boots. And just as the last few seats were filled and the lights narrowed down to the stage, he clicked the microphone, put it to his lips, and started to wail.
