NYFW Day 4/5: Celebrities turned designers

In case you haven’t noticed, we like to give you catwalk round-ups with a theme- and so far we’ve brought you symmetrical prints, vintage, fancy monochrome, pastels and florals and stripes.

Former pop stars, Victoria Beckham and Gwen Stefani showed off their collections at New York Fashion Week as well as celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe.

Tapping into the sixties trend, Gwen Stefani kept hemlines short and sweet at L.A.M.B. with a tough baby doll look stealing the show. Although Gwen was MIA for the proceedings (preferring to stay in sunny L.A. – we don’t blame her!) it was still a rock and roll affair with plenty of black, quirky prints and pops of bright colour- particularly in accessories.  Amazing inspiration of how to pep-up everyday looks, the collection is super-wearable with leopard print dresses, stripy cardis and patterned capri pants plus shorts.

The dress everyone was talking about.

We know Victoria Beckham has expensive taste and her close-cut collection focused on clean lines and luxurious detailing.
Sophisticated dresses in navy and sable featured corset colour-block shapes as well as decorative seams. Perhaps taking tips from husband David Beckham, there was a strong sportswear influence too. The statement shift remains for Spring and box bags will earn their keep too- we love VB’s bright leather offerings.

Our favourite dress in the collection

Stylist to the stars, Rachel Zoe made her NYFW debut with another very wearable collection featuring strong prints on maxi dresses, tailored blazers and shorts, coupled with sheer feminine blouses.  Channelling this style (just like we we copied Nicole Richie’s boho style and Mischa Barton’s once laidback luxe, created by the stylist) we can have a little Zoe effect in our own wardrobes.

Animal print - always.

Classic look sure to grace the red carpet - love the scalloped detail
