Fashion Week in New York and London has officially wrapped, and your favorite celebrities showed up in their designer best for a first look at the fall 2023 season of shows. Of course, as Fashion Month progresses into Milan and Paris, we can expect even more well-dressed stars gracing the front row. The exciting thing about celebrity appearances at Fashion Week is that famous showgoers tend to push the envelope sartorially, like Quinta Brunson at Christian Siriano in a chic black dress and Ashley Graham in a corset dress with sheer panels at Paris Fashion Week. The street style looks were just as inspiring, with wearable trends emerging outside each show, from cutout dresses to bright colorblocking.
The fashionable attendees were the perfect complement to the designs debuting on the runway. As we collectively wondered what fashion trends would reign supreme for fall, designers provided some answers on the catwalk. Christian Siriano’s modern take on Audrey Hepburn’s aesthetic was a bold proposition, not unlike the dark glamour of Bach Mai’s “Cave of the Sirens” collection. Carolina Herrera’s Wes Gordon presented a collection of bright hues, energizing fall’s palette with red color; meanwhile, Prabal Gurung pushed the envelope with his interpretation of the no-pants trend. Black designers were especially inspired, with Sergio Hudson‘s neon-hued collection, Laquan Smith‘s celebration of the female form, and Luar‘s parade of elegant metallic pieces.
