A top model’s daily Fashion Week schedule typically begins predawn, with back-to-back castings, fittings, and shows booked in 20-minute increments and lasting into the wee hours. It’s a mad dash between gigs, with little room for errors such as transportation snafus (a challenge this week, with heavy traffic due to stepped-up 9/11 security), but once at a show, the sitting around for hair and makeup makes a good read, be it on iPad or in paperback, de rigueur.

Ford’s Alma, Hyoni Kang, Karolina, Kate Kosushkina, and Laura Love walked the Band of Outsiders show tonight, held outdoors behind Chelsea’s Pace Gallery. Designer Scott Sternberg presented both his collections, Boy and Girl, together.
Jill Stuart’s Spring collection was all about a subdued and dainty color palette—think candy pastels. Mint green, bumble-gum pink, and tart orange appeared on structured tops and sheath dresses. Even chunky-heel Mary Janes, occasionally accented with gold metallic, were soft-hued. Patterns were introduced through use of feminine imagery like birds and flowers, reminiscent of easy ’70s style, also suggested by high necklines and drop waists. (Photos: Via Vogue.co.uk)
