New York Fashion Week is now officially in full swing and the stylish fashion crowds are out in full force! But the focus isn’t just on those strutting down the catwalk in Spring/Summer’14 fashion but the A-listers, editors and well known industry faces sitting front row. After all, these are the people who put the trends into real (well, kind of) life.
Spotted front row so far in their finest clothing has been the usual suspects; Olivia Palermo looking effortlessly chic in a BCBG Max Azria loose white shirt dress with complimentary neutral accessories, Heidi Klum sporting a laid back look in leather pants and heavily embellished vest whilst actress Jamie Chung looked fierce in a leather crop top and pencil skirt at the BCBG Max Azria show. Bella Thorne was also seen front row at the Tadashi Shoji show looking fresh and feminine in a sheer white crop top and matching pencil skirt flaunting just a slice of skin. So far so glam, but over in the casual corner, proving that front row fashion doesn’t have to be OTT is Cristina Ricci at the Richard Chai show in skinny jeans with a fitted jacket.
With Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs showcasing their collections this weekend, there’s going to be plenty more FROW-action to ogle and get inspired by. So in honour of this outfit-fest, we’ve tracked down the very best dresses available now that have the power to put you in the centre of the fashion crowd – or just look properly nice at work, a night out or on the weekend. Scroll through for the top 30 FROW-ready frocks – from Whistles to Christopher Kane - as chosen by Team Grazia…
