On Monday, I had the pleasure of attending Rachel Roy's Fall/Winter 2012 collection presentation at the Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. Not only was the collection absolutely amazing (when is it NOT amazing?), I also bumped into some awesome VIPs. Here's a recap:
Rachel's collection was dominated by a rich color palette of greens, plums and grays with subtle pops of jewel tones like cobalt blue and mustard.
She showed some chic and tailored must-haves for fall like fur vests, chunky knit cropped sweaters and ready-to-wear dresses. Also loved the accessories; wide brimmed felt hats wee definitely a recurring trend this season.
Designer Rachel Roy was on hand giving interviews, sporting her signature smoky eye and red lip.
Socialite Olivia Palermo showed up to support her friend Rachel. Was anyone else addicted to MTV's The City? I kinda want them to revive that show.
Rachel chatted it up with runway extraordinaire Miss Jay Alexander.
Beyonce's stylist Ty Hunter was in the building taking a look at the collection. Queen Bey may be sporting one of these looks sometime next fall. If she does, you saw it first here!
I bumped into Ebony.com Style editor Geneva Thomas sporting her signature red lip.
Angela Simmons was in the building rocking a body-conscious Rachel Roy dress, which looked amazing on her.
Angela and I snapped a pic before I headed off to my next show.
Rachel's presentation was amazing. Can't wait to see what she has in store next season!
