Last week saw another eventful New York Fashion Week show with Ralph Lauren,Calvin Klein, Gwen Stefani, Son Jung Wan and Ivana Helskinki all showing on the last night. Neutral colors with a hint of purple or ice-cream pastels were definitely a trend.
Oscar de la Renta's collection which had classic, elegant and feminine lines and lots of volume including through tassles or ruffles.
Anna Sui really brought out the fun side of the NY fashion week with her fun and begone era 40s style.
Betsey Johnson knows how to make her show the life of the party, with her "T&A" theme (Tits and Ass), she brought plenty of each to her collection this Spring as well as sexy textures. Nicki Minaj looks right at home!
In total contrast, Nicholas K's Ready To Wear Spring 2012 collection was minimalist and pared down, started off in bright whites but introduced some gorgeous sheer colours later in the show.
Phillip Lim was back at the NY Fashion Show again with some simple elegant lines and ice-cream pastel colours.
It wouldn't be fashion without the celebrities, so it was good to see the in-crowd grabbing headlines: Kate Bosworth, Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston, Emma Roberts, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Vanessa Hudgens, Kanye West, Julia Stiles, Fergie and Sophia Bush.
Overall it was music sensation Nicki Minaj who stole the show with her extravagant outfits, looking much more at home at Betsey Johnson above, than here with Anna Wintour at the Carolina Herrera show!
