Ralph Lauren conjured feelings of suspense, luxury and sexy indulgence with his racing-themed, New York Fashion Week show. Lauren showed at the tail-end of fashion week about 35 miles north of NYC in Beford, NY. The models cascaded down the runway surrounded by 60 of the rarest luxury cars that make up Lauren’s private car collection in his garage.
“My cars have always been an inspiration to me. I see them as moving art,” Lauren said in his description of the show. “My women’s collection for fall 2017 connects the elements of the speed, style and beauty of these handcrafted vehicles with the very modern, yet timeless spirit of the clothes. There is a sleekness, an innate sexiness and power to shapes sculpted out of high-tech patent leathers and high-gloss silks.”
The Ralph Lauren show wasn’t the first set to blow spectators away this year (we’re still dreaming of pink sand dunes Rihanna), but it certainly delivered. A who’s-who list of celebs, editors and beauty influencers made the trip to upstate New York to take in the show followed by a stunningly chic dinner party. Scroll down to see which of your favorite influencers took in the show and of course, what they wore.
