BCBG Fall 2008
Where & When: Friday, February 1st at 3 p.m. in the Tent, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: BCBG is always on the first day of Fashion Week and always a fun show--it's packed with celebs and fashion editors, they hire the big-name models, and the music is great. This season was no exception--Chanel Iman et al. strutted to The Pierces in a pretty, wearable collection. Dresses and bloused featured intricate pleating and ruching at the shoulders; skirts were mostly short and tulip-shaped, a silhouette that appears to be here to stay, at least for now. Nearly every look was tied at the waist with a tipped leather belt, an accessory I will definitely add to my collection ASAP.
Standout Look: The asymmetrical blouse has a drapey, soft look, while the dark hue of the bubble skirt means your hips won't look like a cream puff.
Bonus Points: I couldn't see celebs Sophia Bush, Joss Stone, Cheryl Hines, or Ana Ortiz from where I was standing, but I did have a perfect view of ultracool mom-and-daughter duo Carine and Julia Restoin Roitfeld.
Where to Buy: BCBG stores nationwide
