You know the old pickup line, “Your daddy must have been a thief  because he stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.” Well, Deborah Lippmann must have been a thief because she robbed a jewelry store and put the gems in her polish.

This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.
