G-Star Raw F/W '10

Ok, so I know I'm running mad late with this but NFL (no, not football-Non Fashion Life) got in the way. For the second season in a row, I closed out my fashion week with the G-Star Raw show and once again it was a fittingly spectacular ending. As before, the collection was shown in the cavernous Hammerstein Ballroom, and again I had a great view of all the action from the balcony.

With a dramatic pulse of lights the show began and models poured out onto the runway bedecked in vivid yellows, blues and greens that could have come straight from a crayon box. With a constant stream of looks coming down three runaways simultaneously, accompanied by images and text animated across giant LED screens, not to mention a booming soundtrack ... well, let's just say if your attention wasn't captured, you were probably comatose.

The Fall line was inspired by 19th century coach driver uniform. The collection had feeling of working class vintage clothing, punched up by bright modern colors, and of course, plenty of denim. I look forward to seeing the collection in stores come Fall. When the skies are gray and overcast, these will be the perfect clothes to add a little sunshine to your outfit!

The G-Star show is usually a crazy smorgasbord of celebrities, and this was no exception. My camera caught G-star campaign model Liv Tyler in head to toe G-star electric blue. Other notable attendees included: Adam Lambert, Adrienne Bailon, Agyness Deyn, Estelle, John Legend, Kelly Osbourne, Liv Tyler, Matthew Settle, Mena Suvari, Miss J. Alexander, Natasha Bedingfield, Nate Parker, Peaches Geldof, Robert Buckley, Sean Garrett, Shannen Doherty, Shanyna Shaik, Shaun Sipos, Steven Jackson, Terrell Owens, Toby Kebbell, Tyson Beckford, and others.
