NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- What's black? White? And red all over? Designer Jason Wu's fall collection.
The designer behind Michelle Obama's two inauguration gowns wooed this fashion crowd with his tailored tuxedo looks, clean white collars, pleated skirts and belted dresses.
“He's an absolute genius. I think he's really good at merging old and new and modern and classic,” actress Allison Williams said.
“He's an amazing designer and he has such an appreciation for the feminine form,” actress Isabelle Fuhrman said.
And Wu's formula for fall is a sophisticated hair style, dramatic eye and everything from sheer tops and chic coats to fitted furs.
And if you want to recreate this look, the experts gave us the tips you'll need to do it.
“Nude is the new color. It works on any season why any color complexion,” said lead nail stylist Ana Maria Gheorghiu.
“We're doing a strong cat eye. Lining the eye in a purple pencil in the lid and contouring underneath creating that doe eyed shape,” lead makeup artist Diane Kendal said.
And when it comes to your hair, the lead stylist says slick it back.
“When a woman decides to pull all her hair back, in a strict way ,it's that she's has nothing to hide and is very confident about herself and is ready to kill. Woo,” said Odile Gilbert, the lead hair stylist.
“When you come to a Jason show, you can absolutely see why someone like the first lady loves the way he designs for women,” said Joe Zee, Creative Director for Elle Magazine.
So come the fall, if you pick a piece from Wu, all eyes will be on you.
