NYFW: DVF Spring 2015 Gingham Prints, Pops Of Color and Naomi Campbell

September 8th, 2014 by Christen If there's one show I look forward to witnessing every season, it has to be the DVF collection by Diane Von Furstenburg herself.  Always filled with statement pieces for the everyday woman, this collection houses much much than the iconic wrap dress - and that's where the anticipation builds year after year.  Who knew this season's off-site show would house such stylish moments with gingham, the legendary Pat McGrath, fashion's newest "IT-GIRL" Kendall Jenner and fashion icon Naomi Campbell.  

Legendary makeup guru, Pat McGrath sharing her favorite beauty tips for the DVF model looks.

    My DVF fashion fun began hours before the show with lead stylist Orlando Pita (for CHI Haircare) & Beauty Guru Pat McGrath.  Throughout the sea of beautiful models laughing, snapping selfies and getting their finishing touches on hair, nails and makeup - a commanding, yet motherly  voice arises "Orlando, Orlando!"  and in walks Diane Von Furstenburg herself.  

Diane and lead hair stylist Orlando Pita share a moment before the show.

  After a few moments of praise, Diane and her team rushed to the the runway in preparation for the show rehearsal.  One by one, the models dressed in bright and bold golds, blues and greens walked the runway for final approval before the big show.  

An impromptu photo shoot keeps the models busy while waiting for the rehearsal to begin...


Lined up and ready to go, the models await their turn to rock the runway during rehearsal.

Who doesn't love DVF printed gingham bags and matching heels?

  Once the show began, everyone was all abuzz about Kendall Jenner walking in the show, but it wasn't until the showstopper herself - Naomi Campbell walked the runway that upped the anti on what could be considered a great Spring show.

The legend Diane Von Furstenberg appears for her ovation after the finale of her show.

  Filled with bra tops, baby doll dresses and plenty of leg-worthy frocks to go around, this DVF collection is definitely more vacation friendly than office friendly, but hey that's what makes DVF so great right?  I mean, we have more than enough wrap dresses to go around so this collection is a welcomed suite of fun fashions for any woman to enjoy next spring!   Check out more looks from the DVF Spring 2015 collection below.     What do you think?  Do you love the collection, adore Naomi Campbell or think Kendall Jenner looked stellar?  Share your thoughts below.    

Designer DVF Google Glass Is Here… But Will A Designer Name Make You Want To Buy Them?

June 26th, 2014 by Christen DVF Google Glass     Listen up fashionably deprived Google Glass wearers!  Google rolled out the DVF | Made for Glass collection on Monday, a Google Glass line created with designer Diane von Furstenberg.  A model designed for women, sold via Net-A-Porter, looks like half a pair of stylish glasses and half a robot vision device. It sells for $1,800 and is available in five colors: brown, shiny lagoon, shiny elderberry, matte java and matte ice.       DVF Google Glass   Tech-savvy nerds aren’t the only ones sporting the metal spectacles known as Google Glass. Now that DVF and Google’s lead designer, Isabelle Olsson, have joined forces, who knows what their collaboration will bring?  Could it in fact make Google Glass cool with new limited edition frames and shades? I doubt it.  As much as I love DVF and loathe Google Glass, I don't think any immaculate styling will make people want to buy a pair of uber expensive glasses retailing at $1800 at  Google Glass and Net-a-Porter.

In my opinion, no matter how you style it, Google Glass just looks awkward and dumb...but that's my opinion.  What's yours?

DVF Fall 2013 Show Brings Bold Prints, Colors And Glam

February 11th, 2013 by Christen If you've ever imagined yourself  our clubbing during the height of the glam rock era,  you might just find yourself adorned in Diane Von Furstenberg's Fall 2013 Collection.  Mixed with heavy prints, bold colors and bright patterns - the disco-infused theme wasn't just the inspiration for the fall collection, it heavily influenced the runway soundtrack instantly transforming the DVF Fall 2013 show audience to a less-than-typical evening at the iconic Studio 54.

One by one as each model graced the runway, we saw it all including DVF signature wrap dresses, blazer and skinny pants in “fetish pink,” gold lamé jackets, a turquoise floor-length halter dress, a rabbit-fur black vest, and a dress made of chain mail. Dizzying black-and-white prints were inspired by graphic artist M.C.

Diane Von Furstenberg described her woman for next fall: “Wrapped in a swirl of twisted chain link, she steps into the night. With an effortless glamour, she winks at herself and smiles at her shadow ... In sky-high metallic heels, she swaggers across the cityscape ... She is the rock star and the muse of her own life. Her clothes are her friends. Life is a party.”

The Perfect Dress Silhouette For Spring!

March 8th, 2012 by Christen The latest trend for style savvy fashionistas is out!  Tulip shapes are in for Spring!  Typicially, April showers bring May flowers but this Springtime silhouette is perfect for almost any body type whether its officially Spring or not! For my ladies who are a little more top heavy than others, you definitely want to use volume, colours and pattern to take the eye to the lower half of the body and create balance through the body. Avoid volume and detail at the bust, keeping your top-half simple, but without hiding the waist line. The easiest way to show off  your best assets is in the hottest silhouette of the season - the tulip shaped dress!

Check out DVF's version of the tulip shaped dress - perfect for Spring! A key silhouette for Spring, the Dallas is a modern take on the classic shift. Its subtle tulip shape is sophisticated enough for work and playful enough for cocktails. With front pockets, deep pleats and additional pockets at side seam.   Would you venture into Spring's hottest trend with this shape-loving dress?    

NYFW D&D Style Featured On

February 16th, 2012 by Christen If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm not a complicated girl.  I love jeans, t-shirts and overall comfort (first & foremost). With New York Fashion Week in my rear view, I'm reminded how I came into my NYFW fashion ideas with the thought of comfort in mind.  Luckily, fashion and comfort can coexist under the tents at Lincoln Center.

Last week, as I rushed out of Lincoln Center to my next show, I was approached by photographers to be featured on the site for "Real Style". (I had no ideas if I was going to be featured as a fashion HIT or MISS, but I was pleasantly surprised at what I found.)  Check it out and let me know what you think!

NYFW – Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012: Sultry, Seductive & Bold

February 14th, 2012 by Christen Once the music began, the seduction that is DVF spilled in.  This season's DVF looks may have donned the same color palette as other collections but the designs are altogether different.  From beautiful body hugging dresses to bordeaux pencil skirts and beautiful color-blocked electric tones throughout the entire collection - the seducing appeal of this collection is enough to bring out the diva in anyone. Not surprisingly, prints made appearances within the collection, but unlike other designer collections you won't find an overbalance of hounds tooth here.  But don't take my word for it, take a look at the rest of the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 collection for yourself...

Wear DVF Pre-Fall Looks NOW!

June 10th, 2011 by Christen We all know that these 90-degree days are already taking a toll on us ...AND IT'S NOT EVEN TECHNICALLY SUMMER YET (June 21st). Well DVF has just launched their pre-fall designs and we've found some pretty classic looks you can buy now wear all summer long and carry them well into the fall.


Wear The Color Block Trend Now...

Olivia Dress (In Apricot Beige/Marmalade)

Buttery soft and silky, the earth-toned Olivia dress has an easy femininity. Note the color block patterning and straight cut.

This look is absolutely perfect for Summer Fridays & once you add some accessories this look can easily take you from day to night!







Get a clue on weekend wear.  Blues Clues...

  Agaton Dress (In Tess Blue) The drop-waisted silk Agaton can be dressed up or dressed down making it a versatile day-to-evening wardrobe staple. The dress snaps open and closed at the left hip and comes with a dyed-to-match slip. I'm always looking for something quick and easy that I can throw on and go! (currently my obsession is rompers) but this dewey blue hue is perfect for a Saturday of shopping, weekend lounge and more!        

Summer shorts...In the Office? UH, YES!

Dinne Short (In Black) The cuffed elongated Dinne short can be dressed up or down making it versatile, chic and modern. Note that there is a unique waistband closure with crossover tab extensions that close using gold brushed snaps. Length is to mid-thigh.

CAUTION:  Wear this look moderately conservatively (they are shorts for goodness sake!) Pair these shorts with a romantic blouse for a perfectly preppy-chic summer look.






Rocking Wool in the Summer?  (Yeah, I said it!)

Linda Sweater (In Royal Check Blue) The Linda dress is effortless glamour. This lightweight merino wool wrap is based on DVF's traditional wrap dress design. A great transitional piece as the weather begins to cool. With a cross V-neck, long sleeves and a self-tie belt.


Yeah, it may be a stretch but don't front - some summer evenings get a little too chilly for your taste.  That's when this dress goes in, for the win!  No more fumbling with summer sweaters or tag along jackets, just pick up and go with this ultra sleek signature DVF look.
