Fashion Week has Begun!

New York Fashion Week is officially in session and we were super excited to see that American Express is showing the runway action (and special interviews and behind the scenes video as well) as it happens at : American Express Fashion Network. And don't forget you can catch the action after it happens at MBFASHIONWEEK.COM.

I'm still new to the fashion world, so I'm excited to catch bits and pieces of all the collections. Who are you looking forward to seeing at the tents?

Just from the clips I've seen this morning, it looks like there are a lot of basic black tights on the runway this season. I'm also seeing a lot of black tights with black or dark colored dresses. For Example, I saw these in Style.com's slideshow of Elie Tahari's Fall 2008 Ready to Wear collection:





I personally like to see a little more color, whether in legwear or dress- but what do you think? What is the appeal of basic black tights and what do you think of the looks they are being paired with?

Textured Tights = In



InStyle's home on the web has declared Eva Longoria (of Desperate Housewives) as their Look of the Day. We're pleased to see her in textured tights, which always add something conversational and interesting to an outfit.

We also spotted navy and black opaque tights on several pages of this weeks Page Six Magazine.
