Fashion Week FS08: Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera's fall collection was a WASP fantasy writ large: lots of swingy tweed jackets paired with cigarette pants tucked into riding boots and fanciful fedoras adorned with enormous peacock feathers. All of it was ever so slightly deconstructed and the materials mixed up for a magpie effect. Release the hounds!

The usual coterie of socialites, editors, and buyers attended, plus a celeb or two.

Angie Harmon - stunningly beautiful in real life.
Aerin Lauder bundled up against the cold.
He multiplied!
And he's a trendsetter.
Layers and necklaces.
Hilary Alexander in Russian look.
A popular black and white coat.
Rrreow! This outfit is fierce.
Acid-bright colors.
Pulled together from head to toe.
A mixture of gray, brown, black, and a navy bubble skirt.
Definitely the cutest accessory at the shows.
Gorgeous scarlet dress with a blue sheen to it. And look how she's paired it with an old man sweater. Brilliant.
Late for the show.
The high glamour quotient of wide legged white trousers.
More winter white.
Two women in hats.
Intriguing jeweled stockings.
Truly distinctive personal style.
Tinsley Mortimer and friend.
A flash of bright yellow - even better in plaid.
Very dapper in a suit with white piping.
Cheetah fedora and a feathery necklace.
