Forget fall, this month it’s all about spring as NYC kicks off Fashion Month. If you haven’t been keeping up with it all, don’t worry because Twitterati has got you covered. From the good to the really awful, here is what fashion insiders had to say about #NYFW.
David Beckham is Fashion’s Best Hubby Ever
While Victoria Beckham keeps establishing herself as a top-notch designer with every season, it’s hard to disassociate her from her celebrity status and to only think of her as a designer. It doesn’t help much when her gorgeous husband, David Beckham, decides to attend his wife’s show. WSJ Style Columnist Christina Binkley tweeted, “Hello! David Beckham greeting people at his wife’s fashion show. Victoria Beckham.” WSJ‘s Fashion Director and Style.com contributing writer Meenal Mistry added, “Front row fun doesn’t get much better than Suzy Menkes next to David Beckham.” However, David was not the only Beckham making a surprise appearance. British Vogue tweeted, “Harper Beckham attends mother
@VictoriaBeckham‘s #NYFW show – is she not one of the world’s most stylish tots?” Yes, that was most likely a rhetorical question. Other big names at Posh Becks’ show included Anna Dello Russo, who instagramed a photo of herself clad in Vicki B. Red Carpet Fashion tweeted about the arrival of an unlikely duo: “Maria Sharapova arrived at the Victoria Beckham show with Anna Wintour.”

As for the fashion, British Elle tweeted, “Victoria Beckham has flat shoes, lingerie and the best black jackets you will ever see.” And yes, just like Times Fashion, we also exclaimed, “Hold the front page: Victoria Beckham does flats!”
Fashionistas Party Hard with Lil Kim at Opening Ceremony’s 10 Yr Anniversary Soiree
Earlier on Sunday, Lil Kim tweeted, “Getting Glammed up for a special surprise performance tonight… New York Fashion Week !!!! :).” Little did we know then that Kim’s surprise performance would be a part of the hottest and most epic party this fashion week: Opening Ceremony‘s 10 Year Anniversary Soiree. So just how decadent was it you ask? Fashionista.com tweeted, “We’re still recovering from this weekend’s epic fashion week parties. Lil Kim was involved.” MTV Style further elaborated, “Our girl
@LilKim went HARD on stage for @OpeningCeremony‘s 10 Year Anniversary party!!” Need I tweet more? Fashion Indie’s Samantha Lim added, “Paris & Nicki Hilton to my left, Chloe Sevigny dancing her ass off to my right, 3 trannys breaking it down on stage. Insane @openingceremony.”
Zac Posen’s Model-Filled Show-Fest
From its opening, which included a fierce Naomi Campbell in a festive cocktail dress, to its closing, a bridal-clad Coco Rocha, Zac Posen’s spring collection “blew our minds with supermodels galore
#nyfw,” tweeted Huff Post Style. W tweeted, “If @NaomiCampbell is involved, you know it’s #Instaglam.” While both models killed the catwalk, a competitive streak naturally ensued. The Fug Girls tweeted, “The great @cocorocha closing Zac Posen. Naomi freaking Campbell opened and Coco still won -H.” Do you agree? While Zac may or may not have a favorite, the gracious designer thanked all of his gals by tweeting, “Huge thanks to all my girls who walked my show last night — they were incredible!!” Now all together: Awwww.
