Hits & Misses: Celebrity Round-Up At The NYFW S/S 2015
A fashion show without celebrity presence is like cake without sugar (we really love our cake!) But let’s be honest—we all like a good celebrity sighting at fashion shows, rubbing shoulders with them to get into the venue or bumping into them in the washroom. At the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015, some celebs were ubiquitous, making sure they were present in the front rows of all major shows (yes, we are talking to you, Rihanna), while others chose to lay low. Everyone brought out their latest designer shoes and bags, and were armed with diva attitudes. Here are some good, bad and ugly celeb styles we spotted.
Sarah Jessica Parker chose a lively blue dress by Preen, which complimented her figure really well. Kate Bosworth opted for a pastel blue Boss dress, giving her a pristine look. Rita Ora stayed true to her punk style in a leather Calvin Klein dress and red lips. Such a hottie! Heidi Klum embraced the trend of the season in a tasselled black Michael Kors dress, which was simple yet very sexy. She does not age, does she? We had a few surprising contenders in this section such as Nicki Minaj in a maxi Versace dress and Iggy Azalea who went conservative in a Calvin Klein leather trench coat and polo white dress. They cleaned up really well. Good job, ladies!

Poppy Delevingne’s dress by Michael Kors is ill-fitting and looks like a rag; it does nothing to highlight her modelesque figure. We get that Jennifer Hudson has worked really hard to get in shape and she made sure everyone saw her new bod in a Versace jumpsuit, but isn’t that outfit a tad bit too short? We’re loving her hair, though. Dakota Fanning’s Kenzo dress is average, just like her hair and makeup. The only interesting about the starlet’s outfit are the shoes, which provide some semblance of colour.

And then there are the favourites to hate. Miley Cyrus, what can we say? She’s just being Miley (whatever that is). She was the muse for Jeremy Scott’s rave-inspired collection and we don’t think anybody else could do better justice to the theme, even if they tried. Christina Milian, not all of us can pull off the peasant-girl-doing-chores-in-the-village look. The Betsy Johnson dress has too much ruffle and florals going on in one garment. Anna Chlumsky, the only advice we can give you is to fire your stylist ASAP (if you have one). If you don’t, hire one. This disastrous dress is just a no-no. You are a young, fun and lively girl—please dress like one.

And this is how the regulars fared…
The biggest surprise of all (in a great way) was none other than Paris Hilton. No, it’s not a joke. Paris really upped her style quotient and brought out the big fashion guns. Wherever she was hiding this sense of style, she better keep bringing it out. She looked stunning in a black gown in Michael Costello and black leather skirt by The Blondes. The socialite also looked super-cute in matching outfits with sister Nicky at Dennis Basso’s show.

Riri was omnipresent at the event, so she deserves her own separate list. She was seen attending (almost) every show, all front row. You can be the judge of her looks. We love her, no matter what.
