The celebrity-packed front row was full of famous faces with Michael Douglas and actresses Blake Lively, Rose Byrne and Freida Pinto leading the pack.

The actors were spotted chatting about their favourite looks and giggling with charismatic silver-screen actor Douglas, who attended minus estranged wife Catherine Zeta Jones.

A firm favourite with the A-list, Kors' autumn outing was filled with floaty blouses, delicate chiffon and fringed sweaters.

Former Gossip Girl star Lively looked impeccably chic in a navy tailored blazer with a tan belt and flower-printed dress.

She entered one of NYFW's most highly-anticipated shows with a tan coat draped over her shoulders and a pair of nude Christian Louboutin shoes.

Indian actress Pinto injected a bolt of colour into the crowd with her pretty purple dress that showed a glimpse of flesh with its cut out panel.

Australian actress Byrne played it cool in a navy polka-dot knife-pleated dress while their male acquaintance Douglas, donned a navy blazer and wool jumper.

The billionaire described his collection as a "blend of urban polish with laid back northern California ease" and as "urbane romance".

Metal grey and fawn brown were the main colours infused into the designer's collection.

Chiffon printed dresses, sequined skirts and oversized sweaters executed his casual and warm autumn vibe perfectly.

Slithering snakeskin, luxurious fur and fringing were the main ingredients for his killer accessories.

He presented his show in a TriBeCa loft against a backdrop of the Manhattan skyline, shown through the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Sleek supermodels Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson strutted down the catwalk in the chic shades of slate grey.

Most looks were cinched at the waist with circular buckle belts.

"Soft, fluid skirts, dresses and blouses juxtaposed with borrowed from the boys tailoring," the New York designer said in his notes.

The shoes had the potential to upstage the clothes, with an eccentric mix of clogs, chunky city sandals and black platforms with a ballet-shoe lace-up strap.

Kors entered the competitive fashion industry after listing his company on Wall Street in 2011.
