Dresses were girly, some with pleated bottoms above the knee. Others were done with sheer panels also used in peplum blouses and with a denim stripe print.

Paris Hilton, Rachel Zoe, Kimora Lee Simmons and her ex-husband, Russell Simmons, sat in the front row with their daughters.

TOMMY HILFIGER

Tommy Hilfiger wants men to put some prep in their step with his varsity-inspired collection, fit for an afternoon cricket match or a leisurely day on the yacht.

Seersucker blazers and shorts in Hilfiger’s signature red, white and blue were adorned with college emblems and gold insignia buttons. Slim-fitted suits were paired with crisp, button-down shirts or V-neck cashmere sweaters. And there were stripes_ lots and lots of stripes in a collection inspired by Hilfiger’s style icons: James Dean, Paul Newman and the Kennedys.

“We think that stripes are really going to be the rule of the spring/summer for men,” Hilfiger said before the show.

Gold-medalist swimmer Nathan Adrian sat front row alongside Joshua Bowman and Gabriel Mann, stars of ABC’s “Revenge.”

“I’ve been wearing Tommy since high school and it’s just so sharp,” said Mann. “I think that’s my favorite style actually: prep with edge.”
