Runway Report from a Range Rover

It was Range Rover’s brilliant idea to hire a fireman to drive me from show to show during New York fashion week. Joe knew the city like nobody’s business, maneuvering everywhere from the top of the Upper East Side to streets that I had never even heard of near Chinatown. Having owned a Ranger Rover at one point in my life, I was excited to ride around town in the new Range Rover Sport. The seats were comfortable, and I had enough space to create my own office—all a girl needs to get through fashion week. When I wasn’t in the car, I saw some stellar spring shows. Here are my three favorites:

  • Inspired by a trip to India, Vera Wang took on the modern-bohemian look in the most elegant of ways. I would like to single one look as my favorite, but, frankly, I’m obsessed with everything that went down the runway. And let’s talk about those shoes….
  • Nobody does modernity like Narciso Rodriguez, and this was such a beautiful collection. I love the use of color against the black-and-whites, along with the introduction of embellishment to the line.
  • Joseph Altuzarra is one of fashion’s most beloved designers to watch. I loved the nods to American OshKosh and Carhartt mixed with his super-sleek and sexy French sensibility.
