The beginning of Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week is marked by the Heart Truth’s red collection fashion show where celebrities walk in red gowns to raise awareness about heart disease in women.
This year, Archie Panjabi took to the stage in a red J Mendel chiffon gown and Taraji in a shimmery sexy Naeem Khan one.
Speaking of Fashion Week, don’t forget to tune in to Prabal Gurung’s show which will be streaming live Here on Feb 12th Noon (ET) and Naeem Khan’s on Feb 17th at 7pm (ET).

At Elle’s 25th Anniversary event, Padma kept it simple and shimmery in a sequin Naeem Khan gown from the Fall 2008 collection. I wish her version had either the low neck or the low back. Both together feel a bit too much as do the wire bracelets on both hands.

Evening-wear and more evening-wear. Naeem Khan’s collection played (in a rather flamboyant manner) with nudes, florals, beaded embroideries and enough shimmer to keep the magpies in us happy. Styled on the runway in his wife Ranjana Khan’s jewelry, the gowns were glamorous, the cocktail dresses were chic and the caftans were yatch-and-champagne ready.
Which way to the Riviera?
P.S: The nude strapless gown (extreme left, bottom row) and the white beaded number (second from the left, second row) practically scream Michelle Obama.

At the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, Glee star Lea Michele was spotted in a Resort 2010 Naeem Khan dress with a sheer underlay. The dress was modified to be more of a mini which actually worked great because this more of a fun event than a serious awards ceremony. I also loved that she opted for a natural look to let the dress do the talking. Tan Fendi clutch and Dior sandals completed her look.

If London’s got elephants, it’s mannequins for New York. In a first of its kind exhibit, 30 leading designers and two student groups have collaborated to transform custom built Ralph Pucci mannequins into art pieces for Sidewalk Catwalk.
Prabal Gurung paid tribute to late designer Alexander McQueen and created a head-piece of white butterflies (see McQueen’s design here). Naeem Khan went glamorous (much like his gowns) with a metal studded mannequin outfitted with a colorful leotard, beaded necklace and chain headdress.
Parson’s student group included Niyati Karwat and Emily Saunders, who created as an ode to the 1950s Fashion District, a Victorian skirt.Focusing on a sustainable and socially responsible design, all the materials used were natural. The inner lining of the skirt actually has moss which they hope will bloom flowers eventually. How cool is that!
If you are in NYC, be sure to catch the exhibit on Broadway between 35th and 42nd but if you aren’t see all the designers here.
