(NYFW Diary Day 3) A Day In the Life of: Melissa Rubini, InStyle Style Director
Good morning, NY! It’s Saturday, but we’re still going…
First things first of the day: I order a gigantic Starbucks venti latte to jolt me awake. My outfit today includes: This fall/winter 2013 Derek Lam dress in black/white and navy, a pair of Roger Vivier classic pumps that will help get me from point A to point Z without a problem, and my trusty Saint Laurent BFF. I carry a tiny black Smythson “For the Love of Fashion” notebook, and my sunglasses of choice? My tortoiseshell Saint Laurents.
Prabal Gurung: Gorgeous, poetic and oh-so-modern. The colors! This is my fave show so far. The stores will have more “friendly” (aka wearable) versions, so you should definitely keep these looks on your radar.
Alexander Wang: Here, we step into a more avant-garde territory. The looks are tough and cool.
PS. I take a break to call my husband and check in on him; he has a bad cold and is on his own with our daughter.
Monique Lhuillier: Pink and coral are becoming a strong combo for this season and Monique has a few options for us. My fave for an evening party is this cropped fuchsia top with the full orange ball gown skirt. So fresh and fun.
Altuzarra: The show closes the evening for me, and my mind wanders to all the vacations I would like to take…The whole collection would be perfect for a very laid back-yet-chic trip with my husband in Spain. We can dream!
