Style Seen: 6 NYFW 2012 Celebrity Looks We’re Crushing on
While it’s true that most of what we saw walking down the New York Fashion Week catwalk wow’d us, we couldn’t help but take some serious style notes from its front rowers. From Leigh Lezark’s femme-fatale vibe to Jessica Alba’s standout colorblock, we’ve pulled together our top six favorite looks from NYFW. Don’t worry, they include styling tips on how to make them your very own. Pencils ready?
TEXTURE, TEXTURE! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
WHY WE LOVE IT>> With such an interesting pattern and texture, how we not love it? The gold-trimmed pump gives it a sophisticated edge that is so front-row worthy.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Match your black and white patterned dress with a metallic-accented sandal and keep the accessories simple. Our suggestions? Slinky Printed Halter Dress (187465, $84), Tina Faux Leather Metallic Woven Sandal (188727, $159)

WHY WE LOVE IT>> It’s no secret, we love Leigh Lezark! Not only does she have amazing taste in music (she’s played deejay to both of our runway shows), she has impeccable style. Pairing a sheer black top with a white and black patterned skirt and adding a punch of color with tomato red nail is a prime example.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Don’t fear the sheer. There is a way to go about styling this look without causing a stir (although we’ll admit that sometimes it’s a good thing). Solution? Pair it with a matching cami. Off our rack: Cold Shoulder Lurex Dolman Sweater (190271, $74), The New Seamless Cami (172329, $19), Contrast Zigzag Skirt (195295, $49)
