The end of fashion week finds most celebrities with a weary sense of fatigue and a growing disdain for flashbulbs. Not Charlize Theron.
Unaffected by the overabundance of parties, fleeing paparazzi (overbooked for the evening with other red-carpet affairs) and the overall strain of a packed fashion week, Theron glowed in a blue one-shouldered Givenchy dress with white zip-up Givenchy heels at the Wednesday night New York screening of her new film, "The Burning Plain." The star grasped a small black Bottega Veneta clutch as she grappled for the designer of her gold and diamond hoop earrings. "Fred..." she said, searching. "Leighton! Fred Leighton! Sorry. First name basis, me and Fred."
Theron admitted she was not particularly bothered, or interested, in the happenings going on in Bryant Park. "Shows? I went to see my friends at Rag and Bone — it was amazing. That's the only one I went to."
The actress explained that she was not in New York for the sartorial celebrations after all, but for more sporting endeavors. "I was here for the tennis," Theron winked. "This is the week that we're really promoting the film. And fashion week is way over, right? Oh it's not? Well last week I was here for the US Open. I was enthralled in the tennis."
Notably absent at the Skyy Vodka sponsored after party at The Box, perhaps the star had decided to practice her forehand instead.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
