It Was All Butterflies & Flowers At DVF’s SS16 NYFW Show

Not forgetting a model army of the most girls-of-the-moment


The most star-studded New York Fashion Week runway so far this year belonged to last night’s Diane Von Furstenberg show. Which might explain why the brief from the designer to her models was simple: “I have beautiful girls. When you walk, I just want you to think of the woman you want to be, and be that.”

First down the catwalk was the face of the brand’s Secret Agent bag, Karlie Kloss, who took DVF’s words and translated them into an opening parade bursting with confidence. 

Of course, her best friend and model-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner was part of the DVF crew too.

Speaking of BFFs, Gigi Hadid, along with her sister, Bella, were included. Diane sure knows how to choose her girls. 

And guess who was there to support Bella? Her boyfriend Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weekend. 

How about the Frow (front row), you may ask. It was studded with fashion A-listers like Kate Upton, Malin Akerman and Karolina Kurkova, just to name a few.

And in a season where everyone is sticking to subtle hair and makeup, DVF went for shimmery brights around the eyes and dramatic tresses with bold curls.


The inspiration? We think it could be Diane herself in the ’70s - we love the disco glamour of it all!
