|IMG Suite Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center|
It's been a spectacular non-winter in the Northeast this year. Chilled to the bone is one of my least favorite states. It actually came as a bit of shock to be truly cold again.
I was looking forward to spending the day at the "tents" to enjoy a day of shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center, with my good friends Linda Levy and Stacey Bewkes. Linda's husband is Peter Levy, SVP and Managing Director, IMG Fashion Worldwide. Stacey Bewkes writes the magnificent, critically acclaimed home and lifestyle blog Quintessence. I can never get enough of it and despite our friendship, fawn profusely. It staggers...
As such, we were able to enjoy the hospitality of the IMG VIP suite, aptly decorated like a cozy chalet:

One of the most anticipated shows every Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, is Diane Von Furstenberg's show, always held on Sunday at 4:00. It's a heady brew of Diane's family and personal friends. A-Listers sit cheek to cheek on a double runway, that creates 4 front rows. The people watching doesn't get any better and the house is literally, packed to the rafters. Here's who I spotted in the front row from my perch:
Anderson Cooper, Oscar de la Renta, Barbara Walters, Ann Duong, Anna Winter and Carine Roitfeld (front to back), Brad Goreski and Rachel Zoe (front to back), Tatiana Von Furstenberg, Hamish Bowles and Diane Sawyer.

Diane said, "This collection is called `Rendezvous'." "It's all about loving to be a woman. It's about seduction. It is bold. It is daring. It is strong, but it has humor. It's all about liking your body, and at the same time with big coats, so it's the yin and the yang."
Here were my faves:

To me, the beauty of these clothes is there timelessness.
And that, speaks to the beauty of Diane as well.
