NYFW DIARY DAY 3: STYLIST EMILY BARNES

New York Fashion Week is here and in full swing, peeps. So far, we've scoped celebs in seriously enviable outfits and admired many a sleek street style look—but now we're taking you behind-the-scenes. Our week-long series of diaries from fashion insiders continues with Emily Barnes, a top stylist who's worked with stars like Kate Upton, Carey Mulligan and Greta Gerwig. Join Emily as she styles two NYFW shows (for majorly buzzy brands Pas de Calais and Novis)—and takes us along for the ride.

SHOW #1

"The week kicks off with me and Yukari Suda, the Pas de Calais head designer, styling a look on model Camelia. It's a Japanese brand with a Gallic twist and I wanted to give it a downtown New York vibe but polished—nothing contrived."

IT WAS ALL ABOUT LAYERS

"For the PDC collection I worked on the layering again as this was something I'd started doing with them last season and I wanted to continue it. We added blanket coats, raccoon jackets and over size Alpaca coats for the more editorial show pieces."

HOW THE MODELS ARE PICKED

"For the Novis show this season, we were looking for girls that reflected the elevated approach to Jordana Warmflash's designs. They're still individual with a little quirky—just less girly than previous seasons."

COMFORT IS KEY

"The Novis girl has grown up a bit this season and I really wanted to show an ease in the collection. With the cocktail dresses and organza long skirts, I styled with sweaters, double layer cardigans and big Aran knits. I love comfort—there's something so graceful and beautiful in comfort."
