The latest collection (slash, party!) from Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet was just shown last night at the newest NYC hotspot Provocateur, inside the sleek Gansevoort Hotel. Everyone who was anyone showed up here – (Kelly Osbourne, Mena Suvari, Tinsley Mortimer, Sophia Bush, singer Kesha, Gossip Girl Kelly Rutherford and even Melissa Joan Hart!) while rapper Mickey Avalon performed. Hot. Can I admit I’m jealous my sister, G., covered this instead of me? Le sigh…The line was soooo long outside the building, tons of chicettes had to wait out in the cold until the presentation was back “under capacity.” Luckily, I was able to get in touch the PR girls I so deeply heart (thanks, Erica and Caitlyn!!) to let G. inside to see the collection, which was insanely sweet once again.
Stacey described her clothing “like candy,” to Style.com and we couldn’t agree more. How girly and pretty and sexy and edgy and chic all at once! Stacey knows how to create a dress and the looks posted here are our absolute favs from the fall collection. Pink with gray cutouts, metallic with ruching and a fun, bubble hem, plus a classic tuxedo jacket and sequins and lots of pretty layers of tulle. It’s officially Valentine’s Day, and we’ve fallen in love with Alice + Olivia all over again. Swoon. – xoxo
