NY Fashion Week: Richie Rich PopLuxe Collection, 9/9/10

Posted by Francesca Alfano On Friday, September 10, 2010

Last night I attended the Richie Rich show at Lincoln Center and it was pure madness. Everyone was pretty decked out for the show. Colorful wigs, stunner shades, big hair, super high wedges, statement top hats, studs, sequins, leather, and leopard were all worn by the attendees. I felt a little under-dressed wearing my jeans and a Mexican inspired poncho.

When I arrived, I immediately found out that the check in system was down and they couldn't figure out who had a RSVP for the show. I had to push my way through a very frustrated crowd waiting in line to check in until I finally made my way to the front of the line and was finally handed a ticket. ( Sorry to all those I cut!) Once I made it inside things were smooth sailing.

Ice-T and his wife Coco were spotted sitting front row, I was able to grab a couple of shots but was too intimated to ask him to pose for a picture with me. Richie opened with a ballet display and a violinist who rocked out to dance music.Tinsley Mortimer was the first to walk to runway in a babydoll pink dress. I was not impressed with the looks that went down the runway, the clothing was unsophisticated and seemed like it was made for a junior in high school. Once the "Sex Slaves" walked, things got freaky. Models wearing thongs and leather jackets strutted their stuff down the catwalk, while the crowd seemed to love it, it wasn't really my style.

Things got so much better for the finale when confetti canons exploded to revel comedian Ellen Degeneres who was sporting a badass spiky haircut and a silver tracksuit. The crowd went absolutely berserk and cheered her down the runway. I enjoyed the actual show but wasn't feeling the clothing at all, what can I say- I stick with classic looks.
