More from NYFW

  It's been a crazy week and the whole team is exhausted! Running from one show to the next has definitely taken its toll. Here's a little photo diary of what we've been up to! --Lara   Jenn, Jenny, Derek, Anushka, and myself were beyond excited to see the Yigal Show. So we ran out of the office as fast as we could and headed up to the tents on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, when we got there, we looked at the tickets and noticed one little problem - the show wasn't at the tents! We hopped in a cab downtown and crossed our fingers that the show would start late. To our great disappointment, the doors had closed. Here's all of us with our sad faces on when we realized we'd missed the show.     Next, we headed back up to Lincoln Center to catch Tibi in action.     Here's Jenn, Jenny, Derek, and Lauren in their front row seats!     Our last show Tuesday was Narciso Rodriguez, and we loved the beautiful minimalist statement. Here's a few images from the gorgeous show.   Finally it was Wednesday, and we arrived back in the tents in time to catch a sea of prints at Milly.       After our crazy two days, it was definitely time for a party! So off we went to US Weekly's Most Stylish New Yorkers Party. We spotted Adrien Grenier, Mary J. Blige, Katie Couric, and even snapped a pic with Bethenny.         Read More

RTR on ABC’s Bachelor Pad

  For ABC’s Bachelor Pad finale, contestant Gwen Gioia rented the runway with the help of her stylist Monika Suli.  What did she choose for her final look?  The Yigal Azrouel Very Violet Dress.  According to Gwen, she loved the dress for the finale because of the “fit and color” , adding that “the embellishment on the waist was very beautiful and eye catching on top of being figure flattering.” We think she wore it well!  - AJ       Read More

Enjoy! -- Lara   Here's our fashion team enjoying a cocktail at Temperley:     And a sea of neutral bandages at Herve Leger:     Read More

We’ve Got a Winner!

  Congratulations to Bronwyn Bates, winner of the fabulous leather jacket from Yigal Azrouel! We are sure you'll be the envy of your friends this season in this amazing versatile piece... -- Lara   Read More
  For Spring 2011 Carlos Miele showed dress and separates in the hot non-color of the moment, white and layered in his trademark colorful prints and embellishments.  My favorites were a printed yellow chiffon one shoulder gown, a flame red satin asymmetric chemise and the finale dress, a black rosette one shoulder gown shown without a slip, Galliano style.  The best of part of the show though was the live music…Bebel Gilberto, a friend of Miele’s, sang an inspired version of Pink Floyd’s  “Another Brick in the Wall” during the runway show.   More updates to come…   --Derek         Read More
  1 Fashion Week at Lincoln Center The tents are bigger, check in is faster, and while we're not loving everything that's heading down the runways, we've seen a lot of great looks for Spring.   2 Fashion's Night Out The RTR team hit up Helmut Lang, DVF, Matthew Williamson, and more. Meatpacking was definitely the place to be with a fabulous block party where drinking champagne on the streets was de rigueur.   3 Gossip Girl The new season debuts tonight and we can't wait. Keep your eyes peeled for an RTR cameo and check out our picks to get gossip girl style. "Belles de Jour" - Blake Lively as Serena, Leighton Meester as Blair in GOSSIP GIRL on The CW.

Do you ride your way to the office?   5 The Lela Rose Show The gorgeous Spring 2011 show blew us all away with fresh colors, gorgeous pieces, and fabulous messy side braids that we’re all dying to wear. Plus an amazing gift bag filled with great goodies!   6 The Richard Avedon Retrospective at MFA, Boston Vijay particularly enjoyed this striking pic. Ethereal!       7 Florence and the Machine on the VMAs Her voice is insane! Did you watch? What was your favorite performance?   8 The New Ocean Becky's new favorite salon - $13 for a blowout!   9 NYC Weekends in September & October Fall weather weekends make the end of the summer sweeter.   10 New Chan Luu Necklaces Beaded baubles galore.     Read More

Another September…Another NYFW

  Fashion week has started and there are some interesting changes this season.  For one the shows have been moved from Bryant Park (which was great because it was near NYC’s garment district and all of my showroom appointments) to Lincoln Center and NYC’s Upper West Side.  While the trek to get to shows from our West Village Office may be a little inconvenient, the more luxurious and bigger tents (courtyards to relax in between shows and a Starbucks station!) make up for it. I think the most surprising change though is the super high tech check-in procedure…simply scan the barcode on you invite email sent to your smartphone, and a receipt prints out for the security guards to scan.  No more long lines to push through!  So far I have been to the Project Runway show, Christian Siriano and BCBG and have loved each- Spring 2011 is going to be a great season! We’ll be sending you updates and reviews throughout the week…enjoy Rent the Runway’s coverage of Spring 2011 Fashion week! --Derek   Derek's e-ticket   Derek's already messy desk made messier trying to organize his invites   View from the tents Read More
