Ah the gossip the glamour and the clothes, yes New York Fashion Week seems to be getting hotter by the day.  Read on for our rundown of the recent shows, our surprise favourite was Pamella Rowland, what’s yours?

Badgley Mischka

Who was there?
Spotted in the front row at this high-glam runway show were the Kardashian sisters, 90210′s Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup, and actress Aisha Tyler.

The Look
Ever since this fashion house added clothing to its repertoire of handbags, we couldn’t be more in love with the outcome!  The collection was one of the most formal of all, with its elegant use of draping and tiered chiffon shining through in every piece.  I wouldn’t be surprised if a number of these gowns show up during Sunday’s Oscars.

Who was there?
Even if galpal Lindsay Lohan didn’t make it to the show, it’s still obvious that Hollywood loves Matthew Williamson!  Celebs including Joy Bryant, Eva Longoria, Robert Verdi, Poppy Delevingne, and Zoe Kravitz all showed up to support the designer.

The Look
Williamson’s collection had his usual boho-chic twist, but the polished way he approached his Fall 2009 line was something we haven’t seen from the designer. While many pieces contained Williamson’s flare for beads and embellishments, there were a number of low-key, yet extremely appealing tunic dresses and fitted coats.

Who was there?
The Hilton sisters were spotted rudely texting away on their cell phones during Roland’s runway show.  It really couldn’t wait ladies?!  Other celebs including fashion photographer Nigel Barker and actresses Kristen Bell and Michelle Trachtenberg were seen on their best behaviour at the show.

The Look
The American designer brought sophistication to the catwalk with her show at Bryant Park yesterday.  Roland dresses the working woman who needs to look good at the drop of a hat with her collection of day and evening wear.  Her pieces which ranged from fur coats to satin cocktail dresses quite possibly could have been the most versatile that we have seen thus far.

Fashion savvy celebs like Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie, and Common watched the high paced production from the front row and jammed out to the show’s soundtrack, Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue”.

The Look
The jazz-inspired collection from Diesel’s creative director, Wilbert Das, gives us an array of everyday looks consisting of suits, trousers, and tops that we won’t be afraid to get dirty!  The outerwear line was greatly enhanced with a few to-die-for sequin dresses and dramatic, smoky-eyed makeup.

Who was there?
The newly engaged Claire Danes (she’s set to marry actor Hugh Dancy), Kanye West, Josh Hartnett, and Jessica Seinfeld all came out to celebrate the designer’s latest line.

The Look
Narciso’s Fall 2009 warrior inspired collection had one overlying theme… covering up!  The designer kept his models concealed from head to toe in most pieces with the breastbone cutout appearing in many of the dresses as the only exception.  The pieces, which were mostly black and camouflaged colored, effortlessly flowed from one to the next, but a bit more variation wouldn’t have hurt!
