On Day 4 of New York Fashion Week, we were basically running on coffee, mascara, and the promise of Tom Ford. Along the way, we discovered some really beautiful clothes that were a new kind of wake-up call… though yeah, more coffee would also be nice.

If trends are gambles, Wes Gordon wants to up the ante. The Carolina Herrera designer blurred oversized floral prints into tie-dye-esque patterns, acknowledging the fad without trying to zip The Grateful Dead into evening gowns. For those who prefer their clothes super-pretty but still self-aware, this show says, “game on.”

Do. Not. Panic. Yes, Nicky Zimmermann disrupted her usual hit parade of structured lace Insta-candy with a riotous orange and pink print lifted from vintage surf posters. But by the time Florida native Grace Elizabeth closed the show in a tomato-red eyelet gown, the influencer crowd that relies so heavily on Zimmermanns pieces for clickbait looked noticeably thrilled.

All hail a navy blue and black combo, from the midnight trench and black boots to the blue-black UZI eyeliner! This look is perfect for witches-in-training, along with women deigning to slay their inbox like a knight coming for a dragon. (Thats SIR Brienne to you, Jaime.)

One of the most revered women in New York fashion made a collection sufficiently worthy of worship, especially for adults who enjoy looking like adults.

The best scene in Roman Holiday is when Audrey Hepburn flips out for pajamas. She thinks theyre cool, and fun, and—since shes a princess under very tight rules—shes never allowed to wear them. Lela Rose channeled that energy in her own pajama-cut suit, stamped with a city skyline and way too fun to be kept indoors, even if “indoors” is a palace.

Did she know the backdrop at Tom Ford would be red? Did she just pick the red suit for his front row because its a knockout? Either way, this photo op outside Mr. Fords Spring 2020 show is a cosmic force.

Listen, Stacey Bendet makes clothes we all want, whether theyre office-conquering blazers or dresses that scorch the dance floor. But if shes ever tired of the fashion racket, we hope she becomes a set designer, because damn, these vignettes! Excuse me while I figure out if I can live on paper flowers and a sleeveless dress alone.
