Fashion Week Diaries: Teens In Tiaras At Venexiana

Friday night’s Venexiana show was a different type of entertainment – not quite what I was expecting. The PR girls were nice enough, and there were plenty of distractions while waiting in line. Miss J Alexander was having a conversation close by (not in the standing line, of course). Shortly after, however, the “celeb” sightings took a turn for the worst. Miss Teen Pennsylvania was standing near me making unsolicited, awkward comments to passersby about their accessories. About 20 minutes into this, I was tempted to comment on hers – the tiara.

Once inside, it immediately became clear that the tiara was an incredibly appropriate accessory at the show, which featured an overwhelming amount of fur and rhinestones. Despite the fact this is not necessarily my style, the combination of music (think techno meets punk rock) and bejeweled headpieces created a funky vibe that had the onlookers smiling. The majority of the pieces were flamboyant and over the top, combining sparkles and luxe fabrics in outlandish ways.

Such enthusiasm for glamorous accessories got me thinking that there must be ways to translate these runway looks into reality. A toned down version of the fur wrap like this faux fur stole ($63.90, was $128) looks chic and can be worked into an evening ensemble.

Sparkle can be added through unique headpieces, such as this Swarovski headband ($180). Just stay far away from the tiara, unless you're planning on running for a Miss Teen title anytime soon.
