Elegance is a top priority for designers Dennis Basso and B. Michael. NY1’s Cheryl Wills has a look at what they have in store for spring.

Dennis Basso kicked off his show with a moment of silence for his fashionista pal, Joan Rivers, followed by a parade of dresses and gowns that would have made the late comedian proud.

Basso says his collection is a nod to the 1960s.

"You know, the sixties was a fashion revolution, we left the fifties, I was in the eighth grade in the late 60s. Women wanted something different,” said Basso.

And if there's one thing you need to know about the Dennis Basso Collection, it's all about elegance.

"I love the shapes and I love the fabric, even with a blouse like this it’s sheer, but chic,” said actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

"He's like an original. He's an amazing guy who has figured out how to stay relevant and timely,” said TV personality Hoda Kotb.

Basso's adoring fans gave him a standing ovation. And it's a safe bet that one of his biggest fans, Joan Rivers, was cheering from on high.

Designer B. Michael also unveiled an eye-popping collection for spring.

His luxurious line is loaded with fancy dresses and gorgeous gowns that are fit for a queen.

"I love architecture and I think that for me when building a dress at times my drapery is, like, ‘Oh my goodness, are you serious?’ because it's really all about the seaming and the pieces and cutting the dress for that,” said B. Michael.

And it’s also about the glam, like the show-stopping, jaw-dropping gown that closed the show.

"It was stunning. It was stunning, every piece was gorgeous, beautiful, the detail is ridiculous,” said actress Tamara Tunie. “The gowns were exceptional."

"It was just a joyful parade of exciting, wearable, feminine, easy, delicious clothing,” said journalist Susan Taylor.

A delicious feast for the eyes to be sure.

Fashion Week was a busy time in the city, but after many seasons running between shows, NY1's Stephanie Simon took a new approach to getting a front row to the latest hair and makeup trends.

The best beauty trick I learned at Fashion Week: save time by showing up without my hair or makeup done.

The spring look is fresh and clean.

“It's all about the fresh dewy face, like, the more real skin that you see the better,” said Valerie Star of Caravan Stylist Studio.

This pop-p beauty station at Century 21 department store was organized by Caravan Stylist Studio. Glamour gurus Valerie Star and Kelly Thompson gave us great tips for hair and makeup.

“So any shade of pink's gonna give you like a rosy real subtle way to bring light into your face. Lashes, lashes lashes. We're seeing lots of mascara, we’re seeing lengthening, we're seeing thickening. It's all about the lashes,” said Thompson.

There’s even colored mascara.

“I love, love, love it, it's fun because you don't have to load on all the eye makeup to add that little extra pop of color. So it’s like either do it on the tips you can do it in purple and greens,” said Star.

So hair for spring is all about expecting the unexpected. In fact, Star says what was once a hair don't could be a hair-do.

“We love seeing like an up-do but the unexpected up-do, have fun with it. Do twists. Do little braids in there,” said Star.

Valerie did soft curls for me.

“And just kind of randomly and haphazardly twist it around the rod,” said Star.

Admittedly, I'm doing more of a day into night look. And yes I cheated by having my hair and makeup done here, but there are plenty of great short cuts anyone can use.

“Put some braids in your hair before you go to bed. You know, twist them up, clip them up, go to sleep and when you wake up take them down, shake your head and there you go,” said Star.

And try a pretty pink product that can do double duty.

“A little bit on your cheeks a little bit on your lips I actually tap a little on the middle of my lids, my lashes and I'm gone,” said Thompson.

I'm outta here too. Right after a quick photo-op.
