Ralph Lauren made a spectacular return to New York Fashion Week on September 9th with a star-studded runway show that drew buzz across social media. The designer hadn’t presented a collection at NYFW since 2019, making his comeback even more anticipated.

Star Power on the Runway and Front Row

The show delivered Hollywood A-listers walking the runway, including Christy Turlington closing the show in a stunning gold gown. But it was Jennifer Lopez who really stole the spotlight, strutting down the catwalk in a plunging white knit dress.

On the front row, Diane Keaton, Sofia Richie and Gabrielle Union were among top celebrities watching the presentation. Mayor of New York Eric Adams also attended the exclusive event.

Classic American Style With An International Flair

Lauren said the collection aimed to feel both “free” yet “very classic.” He cited influences from his travels across Europe blended with signature western and denim details.

Flowing blouses, vibrant dresses, crochet accents and fringe gave the collection a relaxed yet elegant vibe. Models also sported tailored pantsuits, coordinating skirt sets and jewel-toned gowns.

The luxurious venue itself, converted from a Brooklyn warehouse, helped transport guests to the glamorous world of Ralph Lauren. According to onlookers, the showcase felt neither tied to one location nor era in its globally-inspired aesthetic.

In his half-century career, Ralph Lauren has proven time and again that classic, understated luxury never goes out of style. This highly anticipated NYFW presentation clearly reignited excitement around the iconic American brand. With A-list models and a front row of stars, Lauren reminded fashion fans once more why he remains so revered.
