Lauren Ralph Lauren Dresses

Ralph Lauren dress

The Fashion Forward conference required three outfit changes--so I've got a lot of material for Monday Mingle. I kicked off the day wearing a new cap-sleeved equestrian dress from Lauren ($149). I'm posing with the lovely Samantha Ettus, one of our panelists and Founder of Working Moms Lifestyle.

In addition to Sam, we had a few other celebs there, like the lanky and fun, Kelly Bensimon. Thank goodness I had my 3" Ralph Lauren suede boots on or I would have looked lilliputian in this photo. Kelly's not a Real Housewife anymore, she's co-hosting a new iVillage project called DIY Beauty with Andrea Sotomayor. Audrey's introducing her here:

I'm also wearing a loaner pair of earrings from Marie Todd--the Alex Hoop($100). We had jewelry designer Lisa Todd on one of our panels. The team at the Robert Stuart Salon in NYC did my hair and the lovely Evy Drew did our makeup.

Here's another look at the dress as I chat with Redbook Editor, Jill Herzig. Who else wore Lauren? Both Lainie and Jo-Lynne walked the runway in great fall dresses.
