Tom Ford photographs his namesake brand’s spring-summer 2017 campaign. Although the designer has captured his advertisements before, this marks the first time in several seasons that the fashion icon has returned behind the lens. This also marks the brand’s first see now, buy now collection which is available for purchase on Ford’s site.

The new advertisements feature models Grace Hartzel, Amilna Estevão, Valentine Rontez and Federico Novello. Captured against a black backdrop, the models wear tailored jackets and sequined dresses in the snaps. With a focus on accessories, large, retro inspired sunglasses and oversized handbags take the spotlight.

RALPH LAUREN'S BREEZY 'SEE NOW, BUY NOW' SPRING SHOW MADE US ITCH FOR SUMMERTIME

Imaan Hammam at Ralph Lauren's Spring 2017 "see now, buy now" runway show.

Ralph Lauren was an early adopter of the "see now, buy now" runway show format. He presented a rugged, American West-inspired Fall 2016 collectionlast September alongside Tommy Hilfiger's carnival and Rebecca Minkoff's block party and to much success: David Lauren told the audience at Fast Company's 2016 Innovation Festival that the brand was pleased with the collection's instantly shoppable retail results. "What's very important is to stay tuned in and keep trying things, and not everything you do is going to be successful," he said. "The industry has to keep exploring, because every other industry is changing."

This sense of moxie is certainly prevalent within the company's New York Fashion Week model, but the actual product Lauren is delivering hasn't wavered. While Hilfiger, for one, has embraced "see now, buy now" so to include ferris wheels and branded jets, Lauren has kept the brand's cool all across the board. The only thing that's changed, really, is the date consumers can buy the clothes.

Or, at least, this has been the case in Lauren's last two "see now, buy now" seasons, rounding out with a breezy, glamorous Spring 2017 collection shown at Lauren's Madison Avenue flagship on Wednesday. As was the case last season — when the company constructed a greenhouse-like structure adjacent to the front of its store — the set was remarkable: The brand covered the entire inside of its store in fluffy white orchids. ("We brought the outside in," I overheard a staffer telling a showgoer.) Guests sat on soft linen chairs, which were positioned into no more than two rows; there wasn't a bad view in the house. And there was no musical soundtrack prior to the show — just some birds chirping that took you out of your element for a moment.

After months of anticipation, Lady Gaga finally hit the stage for the 2017 Super Bowl Half Time Show. The pop star rocked out in custom Atelier Versace looks for her performance. Singing some of her greatest hits including ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Born This Way’, Gaga shined in three different looks from the Italian brand. First, the 30-year-old flew on the stage in a beaded bodysuit with padded shoulders and matching boots.

For her second costume, Gaga topped her bodysuit with a cropped gold jacket decorated with Swarovski crystals and spikes. Finally, the singer’s third look flaunted some skin with a cropped top mimicking football pads and embroidered hot pants. Gaga was even joined by designer Donatella Versace pre-show in her glittering bodysuit. Check out more images of Lady Gaga at the 2017 Super Bowl below!

SELF-PORTRAIT'S FIRST RUNWAY SHOW WAS A TESTAMENT TO MODERN FEMININITY

A look from the Self-Portrait fall 2017 collection. 

In the four years since Self-Portrait broke onto the fashion scene, the contemporary label has attracted widespread acclaim from the fashion industry, in addition to an impressive roster of high-profile fans that include Beyoncé, Kristen Stewart and Michelle Obama, plus the entire (slightly less high-profile) Fashionista office. 

Founder and creative director Han Chong's Fall 2017 collection — his first proper runway show on the New York Fashion Week calendar after seasons of sticking to a presentation format — stayed true to the brand's DNA of marrying clean lines with modern silhouettes and textures, and was a demonstration of Self-Portrait's greatest strength: its ability to toe the line between adjectives. Chong's designs prove that it's possible to be feminine without being too girly, modern without being unwearable. "She is individual and bold," wrote designer Han Chong in the show notes, "and she always maintains a certain irreverence."

All in all, Fall 2017 proved to be an ode to the brand's penchant for using a variety of fabrics, only with a new focus on separates. Sculptural ruffles made their way onto everything from cozy knit sweaters to a crepe wrap dress, while experimentation with sheer fabrics — a brand signature — manifested in the form of plenty of peekaboo lace. However, the collection truly included something for all tastes: party-ready minidresses done up in crushed velvet, smoking jackets in a variety of colors, black shorts cut from vegan leather (an ethical alternative we're happy to see on the runway) and knitted neck gaiters that gave the effect of a very chic neck brace. "I design thinking what women actually want, and then I design a wardrobe for them," said Chong to Fashionista in a 2015 interview. Two years later, this still very much seems to be the case.

Models took the runway in footwear from Self-Portrait's fall collaboration with Robert Clergerie — a continuation of the brands' spring capsule. Block heeled boots and pumps created endlessly leggy looks when paired with opaque black tights, worn with a majority of looks from the collection. On the beauty front, makeup by Tom Pecheux riffed on a sexy, smoky eye with a pop of copper liner — which was, in fact, a matte metallic lipstick courtesy of Maybelline (out later this spring). Double-duty — whether in the form of beauty or wearable pieces that translate from day to night or season to season — never looked so good.
