Zac Posen takes home today’s prize for best model casting. The designer got Naomi Campbell to open his Spring 2013 show wearing a toile print dress—and triggered a flurry of breathless tweets. (Fitting, since Campbell joined Twitter mere hours before the show.) See the photo at left, tweeted by Alexa Chung.
Alexander Wang is notorious for spicing up New York Fashion Week with a surprise or two. Last season, it was an appearance by Gisele and a frat-themed after party. Yesterday, Liberty Ross, fresh off of her husband Rupert Sanders's cheating scandal with Kristen Stewart, stomped full-force down Wang's Spring 2013 runway. It might be one of the best breakover moves ever. Revenge never looked so chic.

Loeffler Randall’s bucket bag provides the perfect pop of color to punch up any fall ensemble.
Last night, Emporio Armani celebrated the opening of the brand's Madison Avenue flagship with appearances by some of Fashion Week’s biggest boldface names. “When you buy an Armani dress, you can wear it for the rest of your life," model Angela Lindvall told us. "I wanted to be here and celebrate that." The party kicked into high gear when three rising musical acts—Skylar Grey, The Drums, and Ladyhawke each took the stage on the store’s top floor.
Located just north of 57th Street, the store clocks in at 6,000-square-feet and will offer a full range of Emporio Armani’s Italian-designed wares—strappy shoes and covetable dresses included. Menswear will also hang on the racks, which is reason enough for Ryan Lochte to make a few visits. “Armani has that clean cut," he said. "Everything fits really well and the materials are really great quality." He motioned for us to touch his leather jacket as proof. (Ed note: Swoon.) Click through to see the best shots from the bash.
London’s fashion VIPs flocked to Vogue’s official FNO party last night at Mulberry’s Bond Street location. Joining British Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman were tastemakers Tallulah Harlech, Daisy Lowe, and Pixie Geldof. While the latter two both sported feminine A-line skirts (Lowe's by Dior), Harlech opted for something a bit more body conscious. Geldof made the biggest splash of the night by debuting a new hair color—an English tea rose take on strawberry blonde.
