Just a quiet Sunday in New York....

So I was talking about those kerr-azy Americans and how hectic their schmozzle, sorry schedule, of fashion shows can be. Just to give you an idea, here's a snapshot of what will be kicking off at around 11.00pm Sydney time tonight.

The day is topped and tailed with two sure-to-generate-pap-meltdowns courtesy Victoria Beckham and Justin Timberlake (William Rast).

Beckham's 10-look line of cocktail dresses represents her third fashion venture, following the release of the dVb jeans and sunglasses lines.

WWD had an exclusive preview on Friday, including shots of two bustier dresses.

The collection of tailored dresses in basket-weave cotton, gazar and georgette silks, boasts corsetry features.

Beckham told WWD:

“Dresses are very signature for me, as I have always dressed in a very feminine and ladylike manner. This collection may be new, but it’s been a lifetime in the making for me.”

Beckham is also expected at the Marc Jacobs show on Monday night - one of her favourites.

So that's today's heart-starter.

In between VB and JT, I think I counted 34 presentations. Ten of them are in the Bryant Park tents. The rest are spread from one side of Manhattan to the other.

Oh, and the suite of US tropical storms has ensured that it's pissing down with rain in New York.

I'm not sure which would be worse: cab strike, as occurred this time last year, or torrential rain.

Each to their own, I guess, but having two cricket balls hold up a strapless dress... Better not to go there.
