New York Fashion Week is like the pre-party to London Fashion Week. It’s the first week where we all get excited about fashion by seeing what the models and front row celebs in New York are wearing and then it intensifies when the fashion circus moves to London straight afterwards.
If New York is anything to go by, we could be in for a lot of black this season. It’s a universally flattering colour and it’s also very versatile as you can get so many shapes of black dresses. This year, the trend is for loose floaty shapes and lots of lace as opposed to plain, straight styles.
Let’s have a closer look at some of the fabulous fashion week black dresses:
The eldest Kardashian sister looked stunning in a black party dress with an asymmetric hem. Now that she’s single after splitting from Scott Disick, Kourtney’s having a lot of fun. She’s been attending more parties than usual and she’s got her eye in when it comes to what to wear as her new wardrobe is to do for.
Kim’s always pushing boundaries when it comes to fashion and she certainly did that with a black lace maxi dress that completely showed off her curves. She wears it with attitude and walks with her head held high and makes it work for her. What do you think?
Mary J Blige
Mary J Blige has really found her fashion sense after years of wearing street clothing. The black midi dress that she wore to the Harper’s ICONS party was stylish, sophisticated and made her feel confident as she has a big smile on her face. The feeling of looking good and knowing it is the best!
She’s dating Leonardo DiCaprio and it’s not hard to tell what he sees in her as she looked classy and sophisticated in a long-sleeve black maxi dress. The red lipstick and side-parting adds to the elegant look.
Alexa was one of the few celebs to wear something that wasn’t black and she really stood out in a yellow dress. It would have stood out no matter what others were wearing as it made her look like an old-fashioned Hollywood film star. This is a great dress for Christmas parties as it’s a timeless classic.
Actress Neve Campbell attended quite a few shows so she wore a black midi dress that was smart but comfortable enough for her to move around town on a hot late summer’s day. The neckline makes the dress look different from any other black dress and that’s what you need to take a black dress to the next level and make people look twice.
Kelly used her dog to create a monochrome effect and her sunglasses were white too, which added to her dramatic look. The black prom dress style really flattered her figure and made her waist look tiny. No wonder she’s on E!’s Fashion Police – she knows what to wear to make her look pretty.
Which celeb looked the best in your opinion? Remember that London Fashion Week starts on 16 September and we’ll have all the gossip and fashion close-ups for you from that.
