Marc Jacobs and Saks Fifth Avenue took two honors each, and DKNY was named “Best Twitter” for the fourth year running. Congratulations, everyone!

Diane von Furstenberg brought a touch of ’70s glamour to New York Fashion Week with her bright lip and bouncy curls beauty. ”Diane is all about empowering women,” said lead hairstylist Orlando Pita, who steered clear of adding extensions to the carefree styles. “To give all the girls the same look doesn’t say much to the message she wants to give.” The look can serve as inspiration—it’s a perfect way to transition from spring’s bright tones to fall’s subdued colors. We were so inspired, we just had to get the step-by-step breakdown. Click through our gallery to see tips from the pros, including the exact products they used.
Olivia Palermo is a front row staple at New York Fashion Week, and she’s heading to every show wearing a different look (from left: at Monika Chiang, Noon by Noor, Diane von Furstenberg, and Tibi). How does she keep her outfits fresh? It’s a gift, she says. “Honestly, I don’t really put much time into it,” she told InStyle.com while checking out Monika Chiang’s new collection. “I’m just constantly on the go. The shows are more important to me than my outfit.” That said, the chilly temperatures influence the style star’s choices. “I really like wide-leg trousers and a sweater, especially in this weather,” she added. “And a great coat that makes a fantastic statement.” Secret’s out!

Diane von Furstenberg called her fall collection “Life of the Party,” and for good reason—the iconic designer took the audience on a wild ride through her ’70s-era Studio 54 days. This inspiration translated into bold prints, flowing chiffon, shimmering lamé, and effortlessly-cool dresses (and that includes her timeless wrap styles). For the girl-on-the-go, she offered up fringe hobos, bright clutches, and versatile platforms. The designer went on to describe her inspiration as a woman who is “the rock star and muse of her own life life,” much like the designer herself! See our favorite looks in the gallery.
