Fashion Week: The Most Fabulous Person at Erin Fetherston; Ivana Helsinki Goes Americana
|Designer Erin Fetherston & friend|
Although Fetherston and her hot new husband, Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, are both gorgeous, there was one other person in attendance who stood out from all the guests and tween PR gals.
In a neon green plaid satin dress and purple hair sat Beatrix Ost. This German-born stunner is a model, writer, artist, designer, theatrical producer, trained dancer, actress, and fashionable woman-about-town. We were in awe just sitting next to her when a waiter, who perhaps couldn't see past Ost's fabulousness spilled a drink on her dress! She left soon thereafter. Show's over!
The following day we caught Finnish label Ivana Helsinki at Chelsea Piers. She always seems to have outlandish shows, which we attend mostly for the spectacle, but we were pleasantly surprised by the short lace dresses, tie-dye sort of stockings, and black-and-white cork heels.
Although we were promised music by Shirley Manson, what we got instead was an eclectic array of folk. Perhaps this was Manson's "Neil Young" Spotify playlist or something—who knows. But the short film (that seemed longer than most short films) that preceded the event didn't help matters. Thank goodness the shoes always save the show.
