We've FINALLY hit our stride and are smack DASH in the middle of New York Fashion Week. Thus, what better way to keep the festivities going than to attend a garden party—in the middle of a warehouse on 14th Street—and take in beaded confections with a handful of mini cupcakes (aka LUNCH and probably DINNER) in hand? Well, thanks to the Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet presentation, we were not only treated to actual sustenance of the Sprinkles variety but also to a star-studded garden of dressed-up delights. Perched atop astroturf platforms and nestled between giant birdcages were all sorts of disco Gatsby wonders. Ms. Bendet covered several themes (and decades) for a collection of feminine looks that we predict will wind up on many a red carpet (and PROM!) next year. Upon arrival, we spied Kourtney Kardashian perusing a group of white dresses, particularly a black and white striped sequin dress that we think would look PERF on her. We also noticed Michelle Trachtenberg eyeing a black, beaded flapper number that we can imagine her Gossip Girl alter ego, Regina Sparks, wearing.

Alice + Olivia has become the label of choice for young Hollywood, particularly for actresses and singers such as Jordin Sparks (who looked so fresh and ADORBZ at the party in tan shorts and a sweater) who are interested in looking ladylike at appearances but not too over-the-top. With the spring collection, Bendet offered a variety of dresses—frothy and full, form-fitting 50s, maxi 70s, or ladylike cocktail—and rounded them out with hyper-color separates in shades of bright orange (color is EVVVV-ERY-WHERE for spring) and yellow as well as in pretty pastels that look very Lauren Conrad. There was a whole girly vibe to it all—which is what Alice + Olivia does best—and we have no doubt her girls will be snatching up these fash-confections almost as quickly as they were the cupcakes.
