New York Fashion week is about more than what we see on the runway. The lucky few celebrities and socialites who bag front row seats wear outfits that can often be equally as satisfying, or unkind, to the eye. We have made a list of the best and worst FROW outfits of NY fashion week 2015:
Sarah Jessica Parker
One of the biggest battles in every girl’s life is choosing between SJP and her on-screen character Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobes as their dream closet. Today, we choose Parker hands down. She nailed both the oversized, gingham and pastel trends when she wore a flawless blazer and gown at the Tome show. The olive pumps donned by the 49 year old actress are part of her shoe collection with Tome that debuted last Thursday.
The Chinese actress is gaining fast Western fame due to her continuing fashion perfection. She supported Chinese brand Fashion Shenzhen’s show in a chic monochrome ensemble, effortlessly paired with nude heels.
Can we take a minute to remember Lively gave birth to her first child less than four months ago? The actress showed off her incredible post pregnancy figure at the Gabriela Cadena show last Thursday. She worked a monochrome, figure-hugging dress with an over-sized black coat and simple white strappy heels. A bright orange clutch was added for the right pop of colour and some small rings and bracelets as accessories.
Kim shocked this year when she arrived at her husband’s Adidas originals x Kanye West YEEZY collection in what can only be described as a full body stocking. Underneath, she sported un-matching underwear and over, an outdated army print jacket. The reality star’s only saving grace is that the unusual ensemble was part of her hubby’s collection – we’re praying that it was a show of moral support, and not a bigger problem.
It pains me to criticise Queen Bey, but it must be done. The individual bits of her chosen outfit worn to Kanye West’s YEEZY show (coat, bag and two-piece) would have been great separately – but together it was all a bit too much. The colours, textures and symmetry clashed and the randomly placed flower, just why?
Rare is the day Olivia Palermo makes it onto a worst dressed list. While her outfits to shows such as Tibi and Tommy Hilfiger were up to her usual standard, we’re not too sure what happened when she dressed herself for the Moncler Grenoble front row. The socialite wore skin coloured flares with a fuzzy pink jumper and a two-toned, two-textured coat. The custard-coloured belt was just the cherry on top of a truly disappointing outfit.
