New York Fashion Week Meets Fashion's Night Out

Fashion, fashion everywhere. The second day of catwalk shows coincided with Vogue's blowout extravaganza, Fashion's Night Out, so New York was a bonanza of designers, celebrities, models and more. Here are some highlights from day two of the shows (and click here to see what happened at FNO in London).

Whitewash: Spring's must-have according to Max and Lubov Azria at their BCBG show? The LWD (little white dress). The silhouette varied - symmetrical, strapless, cap-sleeved - but the end result was the same, with fresh, wearable dresses with chic details, like tulle under the hem. Perfect fare for the front-row crowd, which included Ashlee Simpson-Wentz , Coco Rocha and Kelly Rowland.

Bright eyes: Peter Som's Peggy Guggenheim-meets-Miami collection, was all about joy and playfulness. There were pretty prints, ladylike shapes and bold colours, right down to the vibrant eyeliner in a daring neon yellow hue.

Street dance: As part of FNO's festivities, Naomi Campbell took to the sidewalks outside of the Dolce & Gabbana store on Madison Avenue, where she and a slew of other models performed a dance routine. The model was decked out in black hotpants and fishnets and looked every bit as fabulous as when she began her career 25 years ago.

First lady style: Thanks to Jason Wu, sophisticated ladylike is back for spring - think delicate organza blouses paired with chunky tweeds. As for his eveningwear, it was beautifully in bloom (inspired by Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes), with floral appliqués adorning dresses and petals covering gowns. We bet Wu fan Michelle Obama's already got her eye on a couple...

Celeb spotting: Some serious A-list star power gathered in Manhattan's top shops last night. Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Mary J Blige were spotted at Bergdorf Goodman while Halle Berry and Jessica Alba hung out at Polo Ralph Lauren. Jennifer Lopez made an appearance at Macy's, Charlize Theron went to Dior and the Olsen twins signed autographs at the Elizabeth and James pop-up shop. Also, Claire Danes visited Viktor & Rolf's "bed-in" at Saks Fifth Avenue while Diane Kruger played Pictionary on the third floor and Daphne Guinness wowed everyone at Barneys with her skyscraper heels. We wonder who will be sticking around for the shows...

Supporting cast: Marcus Wainwright and David Neville (of Rag & Bone) took their military-inspired sportswear in a more intimate direction this season. The duo collaborated with lingerie designer Jean Yu on a range of harness bras, which toughened up their softer looks, like an all-white broderie anglaise trouser suit and delicate crochet skirt.
