Vogue and Polyvore have banded together to bring two lucky ladies or gents to New York City for Fashion's Night Out. Vogue readers and Polyvore set designers are invited to create special moodboards for the FNO Style Setters contest. Finalists will be chosen by fashion bigshots Grace Coddington, Blake Lively, and Alexander Wang. Over the course of three weeks, the special judges will choose two finalists each, and then those six will go head-to-head to win the hearts of the Polvore & Vogue communities in a special open vote to determine the two winners of the grand prize: two winners will receive a trip to New York, a photo shoot, and a visit to the infamous Vogue fashion closet.
Blake Lively selected two winning sets for the first week's Fall Wardrobe Essentials challenge, created by Polyvore users alexand-rra and lovekhrys.
In terms of layout, overall style, and color palette, Lively's two choices are really similar, and both feature earthy tones and faux fur details. If I had to decide between them, I'd probably go for alexand-rra's Do It Like a Lady set, mostly because of the masterful high/low mix: alexand-rra accessorized the Miu Miu dress with Jimmy Choos, an ASOS bag, and an H&M hat. A girl after my own heart!
