My Favorite Things – People Watching at the 2012 Mercedes Benz NY Fashion Week

This fall, I wasn’t able to spend as much time with my camera at Fashion Week as I would have liked.  Even so, the few hours I spent on the plaza at Lincoln Center were lively and I got some fun shots.

Even the very young were sporting cool ‘dos…

And accessories.

(She had her own medieval version of the headband going on, too.)

Meanwhile, the gents were rocking the prints, from leopard paired with camouflage…

Lively leaf prints…

And a little of everything else in between!

Meanwhile, some silhouettes were avant garde…

As the fashionistas dashed across the plaza, I caught glimpses of the oh-so-trendy wedge sneakers…

In terms of the best dressed, my vote was between this beauty…

And this elegant pixie who just happens to be Sami Gayle.

Of course, I’d also put Paula Abdul in the best-dressed list, too!

Although I’m shy around strangers, I talked with some neat people.  He and I tried to figure out the identity of a celebrity who passed by.  To be honest, I was more intrigued with the color of his eyes…

And fashion stylist/blogger Joy Adaezé was a delight to meet.  She pointed out the monkeys on her sunglasses.  I wouldn’t have missed them!

As I left the plaza, the photo opportunities continued…

Proof that colors come and go, but a smile is never out of style!

    • Thanks, Helen! I did have fun “shooting,” even though I missed most of the big celebrities this year.

      Norma sent me the big news about the MSO. I’ll be curious to see how things unfold with the new leadership, and I’m hoping for all the best.

      Ciao – Joana
