The Fashion Week Diaries: DVF Gets Red Hot, Victoria Beckham Covers Up, Alexander Wang Darkens The Day

New York Fall Fashion Week heated up yesterday with top designers hitting Lincoln Center to show off their collections. Impressed is an understatement.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG: At her Fall 2011 fashion show, Diane von Furstenberg proved that a red pout works well with everything from furs and liquid sequins to polka dots and round sunglasses— and on any skin tone. Smooches!

VICTORIA BECKHAM: Even though Victoria Beckham’s designs for Fall 2011 were completely buttoned up (many of the dresses completely covered the models necks, and models tucked their hair into black swim cap-style hats), there was a sense of sexy confidence throughout the collection. And the bags that some models toted? AMAZING!!

ALEXANDER WANG: Alexander Wang played with the menswear-inspired trend for his Fall 2011 collection, which was full of dark fur collars, ponchos, cigarette pants, and loads of leather. One of his most interesting accessories were his fur-lined sunglasses (kind of perfect for cold weather, right?).
