When & where: Wednesday, February 15 at 11 a.m., the Stage, Lincoln Center
Runway recap: Nanette Lepore must know how much black, gray, navy, and brown we already have in our closets, because in her fall show, there was not one stitch of neutral color. Instead, she sent a veritable rainbow down the runway, with bright red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple looks, with a good dose of colorful prints in the mix too. Reportedly inspired by tarot cards, the collection had a hippie-gypsy vibe, with sari-like prints, gold beading, and colorful fringed accessories. It was by far the most fun show I've seen this week, and even the models, with their high, slightly frizzy ponytails, looked content. And models know best, don't they?
Bonus points: Lepore always packs in a celeb-heavy front row, and this season did not disappoint, with Stanley Tucci, Kristen Chenoweth, Ariana Huffington, Erica Dasher and India de Beaufort (from Jane by Design, my new favorite show), Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle (otherwise known as Rufus and Lily from Gossip Girl), and Bobbie Thomas from the Today Show. Whew!
