Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Trends

Fashion Trends were not hard to spot last week in New York at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  New York’s Bryant Park hosted the Mercedes-Benz Fashion week for the last time.  The every popular semi-annual fashion event will now move to Lincoln Center starting with September 2010.  As usual Hollywood’s royalty found front row tickets to admire the couture fashions and be seen and heard.  From my observance there were three major trends to this past week’s events: texture, color, and celebrity.

Celebrities:

As always Celebs and other Hollywood types flock to New York to take in the couture and get photographed while doing it.  At many shows it was young hollywood versus old hollywood.  Which celebrity do you think looked the most fashionable at fashion week?
