It’s that time of the year again! On Sept. 6, 2018, people from all over the world flocked to New York to kick off the annual event, New York Fashion Week. Designers showed off their Spring/Summer 2019 lines, while the world’s biggest fashionistas sat front row.
Now, the reason I love NYFW is because I love to see what my favorite celebrities are wearing for the Pre-Fall season. Here are the top 5 celebs I was on the lookout for:
I look for Jamie Chung at NYFW every year because she’s one of my fashion inspirations. Due to some scheduling conflicts, she had a shorter trip this year and only made it to a few events and runway shows. But someone has to play Blink on Fox’s The Gifted and Jamie’s on it!
Jamie kicked off the week at the opening of Refinery29’s 29 Rooms pop-up exhibit with this years theme, Expand Your Reality. She chose to wear a two-piece tartan outfit by PAPER London. Jamie can pull off anything and she confidently did it with this outfit and was even spotted doing some high kicks in one of the rooms! | Photo Source: Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
One of Jamie’s last stops at NYFW was the Nicole Miller Spring 2019 Runway Show. She killed it with a black and white striped boyfriend blouse paired with a metallic maxi skirt. | Photo Source: Nicole Miller Instagram |
Bonus Look: Jamie popped up at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) with a look that I absolutely adored. She wore a pajama striped Smythe pant suit. I love PJ inspired looks. They look so comfortable, but chic at the same time! | Photo Source: Steve Blackburn/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
Shay Mitchell has proven to be a fashion force to reckon with over the past few years. The former Pretty Little Liars star took a few days off from promoting her new Lifetime mini-series You and kicked off fashion week at one of the most prestigious events, the Harper’s Bazaar “ICONS” Event.
She stepped out in a beautiful gold and silver Julien MacDonald gown from his Spring 2018 RTW line. She was stunning and accessorized perfectly with her jewelry and a gold clutch. In my opinion, she was the best dressed that night. | Photo Source: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
A few days later, Shay sat front row at the Zimmermann show and wore a dress from the Fall 2018 RTW Collection: Tempest Tucked Contour Mini. Shay has a great style team behind her! | Photo Source: Theo Wargo/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
On Sept. 12, Shay sat front row at Michael Kors among several other Hollywood actresses. She showcased her support for the designer in a black charmeuse and lace dress. | Photo Source: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
Later that night, Shay rocked a bolder look, busting out some bangs at the Vanity Fair x Saks Fifth Avenue Best Dressed event. She showed off some leg in a mini Dundas dress and some Barbara Bui pumps.| Photo Source: Ben Gabbe/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
With the success of Crazy Rich Asians, Gemma Chan is the new star to keep an eye out on! Just like her character, Astrid, she is proving to be a fashion icon. Gemma made her fashion week debut at the Tory Burch fashion show in a pink pant suit and I think Astrid Leong would be very proud. | Photo Source: Cindy Ord/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
A few days later, she reunited with her CRA co-star Awkwafina at the Prabal Gurung fashion show. Prabal Gurung was one of the designers she wore during press for Crazy Rich Asians. During NYFW she was a vision in red as she showed support for the Asian American designer. | Photo Source: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
Heart Evangelista is the Philippines’ sweetheart. She has been an actress in the Philippines since she was in her teen years and has grown into one of the country’s biggest fashionistas. Ever since I was young, I watched Heart on The Filipino Channel (TFC) and now on the GMA Network, and she’s still one of my favorite TV personalities. As a Filipino American, I’m so proud to see her making waves in the international fashion world.
Heart was first seen at the Tory Burch show rocking a Tibi power suit. The gingham get up is part of their Pre-Fall 2018 line. She also accessorized with a Tory Burch tote bag and add a pop of color with some red Louboutins. | Photo Source: Anna Webber/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
She then changed into a different ensemble for the Kate Spade presentation. She was head to toe in Kate Spade and with the white/blue dress and red shoes, I was getting some serious Dorothy vibes. | Photo Source: Instagram @iamhearte |
She ended her night at the Harper’s Bazaar “ICONS” Event in a beautiful custom made Mark Bumgarner gown, showing her support for local designers. It was such a beautiful dress. She fit in perfectly. | Photo Source: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
Before leaving to go back to the Philippines, Heart made a stop at the Prabal Gurung show in another power suit. The hot red suit was from the designer’s Resort 2018 line.

We all know Blake Lively is a huge fashion icon. She styles herself and rocks whatever she has on. So many people get on her about some of her fashion choices, but those opinions do NOT matter because Blake can hold her own.
She has been pretty busy promoting her latest movie, A Simple Favor, but she made some time in her busy schedule to attend the Ralph Lauren fashion show. She rocked a chic, black and white suit alongside her co-star Henry Golding and director Paul Feig. | Photo Source: Rob Kim/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |
Here are some honorable mentions:
Dianna Agron, one of my favorite Glee stars, came out from the shadows for NYFW. She attended both the Oscar De La Renta and Michael Kors shows wearing floral dresses from each designer.
Hailee Steinfeld looked fierce at the Tom Ford presentation and went tartan from head to toe at the Michael Kors show.
Barbara Palvin was spotted all over NYFW with boyfriend, Dylan Sprouse. I think it’s safe to say that they are quite the fashionable couple. They made their red carpet debut at the Harper’s BAZAAR ‘ICONS’ event and ended NYFW at the Vanity Fair’s Best-Dressed 2018 party.
