Social Styles: Front Row at New York Fashion Week

Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held

In South Florida, the name Elysze Held is synonymous with style. As founder and president of the Miami fashion/image consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to WSVN 7/Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez & Louis Aguirre and has dressed CEO's, models, super-models, celebrities, socialites & fashionistas! Elysze frequently commutes to New York, is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. With her stylist's eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!

In her third column for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, Fashion contributor Elysze Held captured the highlights of the major collections from the front row at–Carolina Herrera, Reem Acra, Naeem Khan, Carmen Marc Valvo, Carlos Miele, Zang Toi, Marc Jacobs, Dennis Basso, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta. (and that was just at the beginning of the week!) Of course, it would not be New York Fashion Week without celebrity spotting at every show-Matt Damon, and Kristin Chenoweth at Naeem Khan; Jeannie Mai (Host of Style Network’s How Do I Look?) at Reem Acra and Herve Leger; Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer and Anderson Cooper at Diane von Furstenberg; Dakota Fanning and every fashion notable at Marc Jacobs; Joan Rivers at Dennis Basso, and the ‘Twilight Vampire girls’ everywhere.
