Teen Vogue‘s Naomi Nevitt Rubs Elbows with Kanye, Taylor, and the Entire Blogosphere at NY Fashion Week
From left: "Fashion Week started off with a bang thanks to Wren's too-cute French schoolgirl inspired collection. Note to self: Must start wearing knee high socks!" "Got a chance to meet Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen. She's a big fan of Jen Kao's and is fittingly very rock'n'roll herself. She's has her own band and is going on tour this spring! (Here's a video interview I did with her moments before this picture was snapped.)"
"Could Erin Wasson get any cooler? I love her fall '09 offerings for RVCA—especially the slinky black lace dress!" "Kanye West does not travel light! I nearly got run over by the rap star and his posse when they arrived at Tory Burch. Nice bandleader jacket, Kanye!"
"Snapped this pick of Jen Kao's bejeweled nails. This girl is sparkle crazy!"
From left: "Absolutely loved Vena Cava's disco themed presentation. Plus blogger extraordainner Laurel of It's Her Factory was modeling (right). The Internet rules!" "Bumped into Bunny Bisous blogger-turned-New York It Girl Julia Frakes at Three As Four presentation. How amazing is her Peter Jensen horse bag?"
From left: "While running around for Fashion Week, I almost forgot it was Valentine's Day! My sweet boyfriend Erik Lindman reminded me when I got home by giving me a beautiful painting he had made. Other lovely scores from the day: Model-themed Sweet Hearts from Vena Cava and Hansel From Basel socks and make-up from Karen Walker. (My cat Freja decided to make a cameo)." "While nowhere near as nice as his gift to me, I gave Erik chocolate lips. Kiss kiss!"
From left: "Back to business on Sunday, I ran into Susie Bubble at Jeremy Laing. Bloggers dress so well!" "I never knew I needed a pair of corduroy sweatpants until I saw Matthew Ames presentation. Very apocalyptic monk on the whole, but as separates, his clothes were quite covetable."
From left: "Bloggers unite! Here I am with Camille of must-read blog Childhood Flames, Teen Vogue Fashion Features Intern Elana Fishman, and my former intern Connie Wang of Pretty Legit. You're looking at the future of fashion right here, my friends!" "Oh how I love Bodkin, the new sustainable line from my friend and former Teen Vogue girl Eviana Hartman. Thanks to her stunning presentation, catsuits are now very high on my fall wish list."
From left: "Jen Kao just might be my new favorite designer. Love this mirrored zip-up dress!" "Spotted! Gossip Girl's Hazel (real name: Dreama Walker) at Nanette Lepore's early AM presentation. This was one of three GG sightings in one day —Isabel (real name: Nicole Fiscella) at Alexandre Herchcovitch and Little Jenny Humphrey (real name: Taylor Momsen) at Anna Sui."
