How Anna Wintour Dose Fashion Shows

Undeniably, one of the most major moments in fashion happened last Thursday night with Vogue's Fashion's Night Out Fashion show. The concept of the show was created by Anna Wintour and her Vogue Magazine staff to develop and style a runway show of 171 different looks from a slew of different designers fall 2010 collections - most runways include about 40 looks. Designers like Louis Vuitton, Marcesca, Prada, Dreis Von Noten, Paul Smith, Alexander Wang, and Jason Wu, to House of LaVande, Miriam Haskell, Alexis Bittar, Manolo Blahnik, Sophie Theallet, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin all contributed their strongest pieces to create this masterpiece. The fall looks were divided into eight different categories and ten looks from each category were reviled to an audience of designers and fashion enthusiasts alike.
The first grouping to show was Fifties Flair which was styled with Mad Men in mind. The models were adorned with full a-line skirts, red lips and kitten heals.
Second came Tartan Twist. This grouping showed one of falls strongest styles, plaids and tweeds in different silhouettes but always paired with a straight leg pant and a strong black boot.
The Pure At Heart collection came off to me as more of modern simplicity with clean lines a neutral color pallet.
Weekend wrap up tells the story about embracing the fall season with layers to boot. It's something that I long for here in Southern California but look forward to traveling to come the winter season. My favorite thing about this grouping is how every model is topped of with an Alexander Wang side braid.
My least favorite collection was Rock Chic. A collection that was dominated by overdone makeup and over styled hair heavy. It's the emo-chic collection in my opinion but the looks were a magnificent blend of animal prints, leather, and sequins of all sorts.
Gone Global was hands down a wonderful tribute to costume. Not likely that you would see anyone wearing these looks in the states but if your headed to Russia, you might take a few pieces from this collection.
Jazz Age-Cool calls our attention to this season's velvets and furs of every color. The sleek and refined look reminds us that when you play it up with the fabrics, to play down other aspects of your garb.
CBS cameras followed Anna Wintour and her staff around for three months prior to the show to capture the efforts that went into producing this ground breaking fashion show. If you missed it you can watch it here.
