NYFW Favorites: Alice + Olivia Fall 2013

Heyyy

So the must see, must attend, compilation of designer shows otherwise known as New York Fashion Week is underway and girls, do I have some drool worthy looks for you!

If you’re not familiar with Alice + Olivia.. then you need to GET familiar! But no worries, your girl is here to hook you up with the 411! A+O is a contemporary women’s clothing brand and celebrity favorite, launched in 2002 by designer & founder Stacey Bendet.

For Fall 2013, Alice & Olivia gives us texture and layers with an array of metallics, leathers, wools, lady like lace detailing and patchwork faux fur. I know.. you’re really over these mounds of snow & already pumped up for spring but I promise this is good!

Instead of traditionally walking the catwalk, models posed against a beautiful vintage-like backdrop! No matter what your personal style may be, you will no doubt fall in love with SOMETHING if not all the pieces from the collection.

Check out some of my faves!

Trend Alert: Beyonce Shuts Down the Super Bowl

So I could have bet money that Mrs. Tina Knowles, Beyonce’s momma, was still designing her performance costumes, but not this time!

For the big half time show, Mrs. Carter used a little known designer by the name of Rubin Singer and what better way to get exposure than with one of the biggest entertainers during the most widely watched show often year!

Mr. Rubin Singer started sketching for Beyonce’s costume in November and finalizing it in Decmeber with some tweaking being done right up to show time! The rocker chic look took 200 hours to get done and utilized 14 seamstresses!!

Following 2013 fashion forwards tends, the look included, iguana, snake, lace, nude panels to avoid any Janet Jackson mishaps and removable leather skirt!
If you missed it, check it out!!
