I really didn’t feel up for going out to fashion week this season. As many of you know, I lost my dad a few weeks ago so haven’t been much in the mood for socializing. BUT I have to say going to a fashion show can easily distract you. I spent my Sunday going to some of the best fashion shows – all in ONE day and now I am posting it all in ONE blog.  So here you have it…a glimpse of the Fall 2011 Collections of Max Azria, Diane von Furstenberg, & one of my favorite designers, Zang Toi.

It’s nice to have friends in fashion. Thank’s Niki Cheng for dragging me out!  Yes THE Niki Cheng that you see in the BoConcept commercials on tv and in the NYC cabs.


Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray Joel (not the lady with the crazy hat and lipstick bleeding who I always see at fashion shows. I know she is an editor but don't know her name)

This is right up my alley. If you know me, you know how much I love animal prints. Crocodile pants rock!

I loved this look so much that I shot front & back.

Back View. Would never think to wear it like this.

I like the pony tail swinging in the background.

Red and white dresses really popped.

"Real Housewives of NYC's", Jill Zarin getting make-up done by Amazing Cosmetics for the Zang Toi Fashion Show.

Zang's team is so dedicated and incredible. Up to the very last minute working on Jill Zarin's dress.

Jill Zarin checking out the dress she will be wearing during the finale of Zang Toi's Fall 2011 Runway Show. BTW - This dress ain't cheap! Costs a pretty penny. I will mention again, a lot of love & labor went into this dress.

Zang Toi with "Top Chef Masters", Kelly Choi. Kelly looking stunning in Zang's emerald and black dress.

Jewelry designer, Wendy Brandes in a breathtaking Zang Toi gown. Great combination of cowboy hat with gown. I would never in a million years think to do that.

Ramona Singer & daughter Avery came out to support fellow Real Housewife of NYC, Jill Zarin.

Ok so now on to some dazzling designs by Zang Toi.  Only a few.

He has some of the most magnificent pieces.

Model, Ling Tan wearing something I wish I could pull off. I love the color emerald. If only I was 6 feet tall and invited to some spectacular charity ball.

Now for the grand finale - Jill Zarin walking the runway wearing a $30,000 gown by Zang Toi.

A kiss to the crowd.

These photos don’t do justice to Zang Toi’s collection.  Amazing and detailed.  He is such a talented designer and a really nice person. I absolutely love his dresses and gowns. You cant help but feel like you have to go to a charity ball just so you can wear one of his gowns.

Just to name drop a little bit, in attendance was Miss Africa and  from the “Real Housewives of NYC’,  Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen.

One of these days I’m going to score that hot, short black dress from Zang!!! (hint, hint). I actually  have pics of me trying it on at his showroom in previous post.

Ok back to pics and his show!
