Our New York Fashion Week Picks for Vanessa Abrams
Oh, Vanessa. What can we say about your style? While we admire your courage in wearing bold color and standing up to Chuck and Blair, we’ve got to tell you the truth about some of those print combinations you’ve been wearing. They don’t work for you. Rather than stage a What Not to Wear style intervention, here are some looks from the Fall 2011 runways we think you should rock. Stacy and Clinton would totally approve.
Gwen Stefani is the ultimate rocker chick, and this look from her L.A.M.B. collection fuses multicultural influences with ultra-wearable pieces. Dress this look up with a button-down shirt and pumps or make it weekend casual with a pair of skinny jeans.
This Stephen Burrows dress shows that prints can be sexy and sophisticated. We know you have a great body under all those layers, so you should show it off — along with a little collarbone — with this figure-hugging number.
The entire Proenza Schouler collection this season seems very Vanessa-inspired. For a formal party, you would look fab in this fitted above-the-knee dress. This is the sort of look that might even melt Blair’s heart!
