A young Beckham, gorgeous looks in classic black and a Kardashian selfieThe 26-year-old, who was named campaign creative director for True Religion, previewed items from the brand’s Men’s Holiday 2015 campaign Saturday during New York Fashion Week. “It’s a blessing. When Princess Diana’s marriage was falling apart and she needed a photographer to help recast her as sexy, independent and carefree, Patrick Demarchelier was the man she called on.Kim posted the snap on her Instagram account, giving her 45.9 million followers a treat as she posed with the Hole singer – who has clearly been taking tips as she pouted for the camera.

I think when you get that title of being creative director some people take it for granted, and people in the fashion world truly understand what that means and for me that’s a huge step, and something I’m trying to do in the long run,” Westbrook said in an interview at the True Religion store in the Soho district of Manhattan. Unlikely duo Kim Kardashian and Courtney Love struck a pose together while out at NYFW in an epic photo that Kanye West’s pregnant wife posted to Instagram on Saturday, Sept. 12. The show took place at Pier 26 in Hudson River Park at sundown, creating an equally contemplative and mesmerizing setting (we’re talking models standing under drain pipes, wielding olive branches—and then there’s that finale number set to a live rendition of “Ave Maria”…). The star looked as glamorous as ever at she flaunted her cleavage in a black dress – and also gave fans a look at her growing baby bump in the sheer gown. Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder player who launched a line at Barney’s last year, said at True Religion, “my job is to come in with some more street style, different things that I see on a day-to-day basis from my peers.” In comparison to his Westbrook-XO-Barneys New York collection, Westbrook says the True collection is “more me coming up and kind of doing my own thing.” Fans stood outside the New York store waiting for the celebrity — who has attended shows during Fashion Week — and cheered once he arrived.

They were snapped with Courtney at the event, and the blonde star looked very stylish in a long black dress showing off a hint of midriff through the sheer material. We also welcomed Jamie Brewer, American Horror Story actress, who not only looked beautiful attending NYFW, but has made headlines as the first Down’s Syndrome actress to feature on the catwalk herself. The expectant mom turned heads in a plunging, black gown with a sheer lace panel over her pregnant belly on Friday. “One of the best shows I’ve ever seen!” Kardashian captioned another Instagram shot of her and West, 38, arriving at the celeb-studded Givenchy event.

Demarchelier has photographed them and countless others in sensuous but classically pretty spreads for Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Allure. The star – who is currently single – was married to the Nirvana frontman for two years before his tragic suicide in 1994, and in August 1992 they welcomed their only child together Frances Bean Cobain, who is now 23. It might be difficult to imagine her after her younger years as the morbid Wednesday Addams or the spunky 90s teen in Casper, but Christina Ricci was also looking beyond chic at Givenchy. Oh, and of course it wouldn’t be Fashion Week anywhere without Rihanna doing the rounds – this time in a rather daring lippy that no one else would ever be able to pull off. Joseph Altuzarra decided to go back to his Basque roots for his new spring collection, conveying a casual, sun-kissed, beach-ready feel with lots of linen, lots of white, some shiny mother-of-pearl, and espadrilles for the feet.

An insider told Us Weekly that the pair were “both smiling big and looked really happy” at the fashion week event, during which Kardashian’s half-sister Kendall Jenner walked the runway. “Kendall really worked the runway and looked amazing,” a source told Us. “Kim and Kanye were smiling and chatting with each other and they both looked very proud of her.” It’s been a busy week for North’s momma. Givenchy muses (and Topshop’s newest brand ambassador) Ciara—in a booty-baring leotard—and Amanda Seyfried were both spotted en route as well, with Amanda in a molten gold fluted skirt. Demarchelier at an exhibition of his most iconic images, many of which hark back to the supermodel era, when Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss ruled the roost. Next to one picture of the trio lying in bed together, she wrote: “My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories.” “Makes me feel so sad. Altuzarra showed his wares late Saturday at a packed runway show in downtown Manhattan with actresses Anna Kendrick and Michelle Monaghan in attendance, as well as Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

On Tuesday, Sept. 8, Kardashian was spotted in the stands at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, N.Y., to watch sisters Serena and Venus Williams go head-to-head in the US Open. Vogue editrix (and NYFW’s most omnipotent presence) Anna Wintour, along with Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie and supermodel Doutzen Kroes were also sighted heading in at show time. Explaining that he was “inspired by the inherent beauty of the materials and crafts of the region, and the ease and humility it exuded,” Altuzarra clearly favored a lived-in look, with wrinkled linen dresses and tops. Besides white, colors included a summery orange, a royal blue and a deep green, which worked beautifully on a hand-dyed crepe de chine asymmetrical dress.

Kendall Jenner took to the catwalk (natch) in a simple white peplum top and loose-fitting black trousers, making her fourth appearance for Tisci since the fall-winter 2014 season. It hasn’t been too long: Back in June, Kendall hit the runway for Givenchy’s presentation at Men’s Fashion Week (you read that right) alongside supermodel Naomi Campbell.

And for those times when something heavier is called for, his tobacco-colored alligator wrap vest and wrap coat were clear highlights of the show. “It was absolutely amazing,” said the “Pitch Perfect” star. “Some of his blazers were absolutely stunning. Puerto Rican beauty Joan Smalls appeared in one of the most stunning looks from the collection: A floor-sweeping black gown featuring a voluminous organza skirt. Overwhelmingly, his colleagues praised him for his speed on set, his strong eye and his impeccable taste, which has not wavered even in this blown-out, porno-chic era. But I am hoping to find an excuse to wear some of those from today, because they were absolutely gorgeous.” On a dystopian set with One World Trade Center beaming its blue light into the night sky this Sept. 11, Givenchy took Manhattan on a pier before a star-studded crowd, remembering tragedy and celebrating fashion at the same time. Riccardo Tisci, the French fashion house’s creative director, worked with performance artist Marina Abramovic on the storied brand’s first New York City show, constructing a Waterworld-esque set of walls out of recycled metal and wood scraps and seating his huge crowd on stacked wood pallets and benches as models walked in looks of mostly black and white.

From monochrome separates and trim menswear pieces to stop and stare-worthy gowns, the spring-summer 2016 presentation offered more than food for sartorial thought. Demarchelier’s unique blend of French and English has become so legendary that there is a question asked routinely in the industry before people are brought onto jobs with him: “Do you speak Patrick?” For a man known for being chipper in a field of depressives, his sole resentment is toward consonants.

Also there were athletes Amar’e Stoudemire, Victor Cruz and Russell Westbrook (showing his own fashion line this season), and father-daughter Steven and Liv Tyler. Goodman said. “The best is when Patrick is talking to a celebrity and the celebrity has that look on their face like they are trying desperately to understand what he’s saying and they can’t let on they do not.” “No one understands anything he says,” Grace Coddington said. “But he calls the models ‘bebe’ and says ‘fabulous’ and ‘diveeeeene,’ and he makes them feel beautiful.” And so they stand on beaches, lie atop of Frette sheets and crawl across the desert sand for the tall man with the wavy gray hair, who goes snap, snap, snap and grunts with approval. Demarchelier — who stood in the corner looking casually chic in his greenish Hermès blazer, his blue Hermès shirt, his washed-out J Crew jeans and his New Balance Sneakers — said the most important thing is to capture beauty, inside and out. “My accent is strong,” he said. “Sometimes I do TV interview, and I see the subtitles underceese. The brothers, 27 and known as The Uwi Twins, unveiled “I Left My Heart In Africa!” at Gotham Hall and said they returned to the continent after 17 years to design their clean and simplistic ready-to-wear 2016 spring-summer collection. “It was a huge contrast from the last time we were there.

We were very fortunate enough to be in a position where we had a lot of opportunities ahead of us and so, when we were designing the collection, we definitely felt very blessed and very humbled,” Levi said backstage after the presentation. You can get back up.” His usual space with a stark concrete floor was left alone to let his spring/summer collection stand under the lights as he rolled out crisp, elegant looks featuring sandy cream and khaki for day, with blush and sunset tones for evening. “I was drawn to the culture and lifestyle of Morocco, particularly the annual traditional of Feast of the Throne celebration in Marrakesh, for which notables dress head to toe in beautifully draped linens,” Siriano said in his notes. He also drew inspiration from natural elements of the country and such things as the colors in Moroccan wedding blankets, along with the lattice details of its architecture, particularly mosques. “I’ve never been, so I wanted it to be my dream and fantasy of what it would be like through my idea of this woman traveling to Morocco,” Siriano said Saturday in a backstage interview before the show. “So she’s dressed for packing and traveling and figuring out what to bring, and then she’s there in Fez or Marrakech.” Siriano included touches of royal gold with metallic lattice laser cuts and organza, and layers of cascading tulle. While trying to appeal to the younger downtown crowd, Siriano can’t lose the older, elegant woman who dresses grandly for evening, “because she’s the one who pays the bills,” he said. “But we can do both, I think.”
