Fashion Week Diary: Temperley London - Rocker Girl Rad

Dear Diary,

The gleaming white tents at Bryant Park have been mocking me all Fashion Week as I exit the subway and head across the street to work. (So cruel!) But last night I got to enter the hallowed (if not shallow) walls of this Taj Mahal of style for the Temperley London show. Ushered (okay, corralled) into the Temperley tent about 40 minutes after the show was supposed to start, I stepped inside to find…more waiting. The army of photographers at the end of the runway got intensely restless, booing and chanting "Go! Go! Go!" before being shushed and waiting some more. In the meantime, though, photographers swarmed on famous fashionistas like runway legend Christy Turlington as well as Joy Bryant, Perrey Reeves, and Julia Stiles. All four were sporting lovely short ladylike frocks in a palette of neutrals.

Once the show finally started, I was intrigued by the rocking turn Temperley had taken — the military-style jackets, uber thigh-high boots, and hardware-tinged belts with flowy dresses were certainly a departure from the sweet, ladylike clothes she designed for her Target line in the fall. The neutral-heavy palette had lively punches of chartreuse and shimmering jewel-tone green in the form of flowing gowns and tunics punked up with the omnipresent shiny leggings.

As hot as Temperley's thigh-high shimmery boots and tough girl police-style hats were, I can see myself more in a look like Ms. Stiles sophisticated black cocktail dress. Here are some ideas for Julia's Temperley style with non-celeb prices:
