The snowy weather couldn't stop songstress Kelly Rowland for showing up to KaufmanFranco's A/W '14 runway show yesterday on Feb. 12. Rowland, a devoted KaufmanFranco fan, donned a sleek new bob. Just before the show began, celebrity stylist Robert Verdi got his seatmates to shout "Happy Birthday Kelly" to the singer, who celebrated her birthday the day before.

Examiner.com had the opportunity to attend the show and see the looks glide down the runway. Ken Kaufman and Issac Franco took inspiration from Kate Moss for this collection, which featured a plethora of outerwear, smart sheaths, and, of course, red carpet worthy gowns. Known for sexy yet subtle looks, the duo started with simple black and white dresses in architecturally asymmetrical shapes (including one of our favorites, a black floor length halter gown with a slit up the middle revealing white fabric underneath). The line continued with gorgeous outerwear including fur coats and wool bombers in white and pastel blues and fur tunics over leather skinnies.

Then, the risks began with black and white gowns featuring flesh tone sheer panels making the dresses appear as if they were painted on the models. Other looks included minis covered in sequins and crocodile skin, bonded leather jackets, and circular strapless dresses that appeared to float.

Nearly every look conformed to the models' bodies nearly perfectly, in a way that was so subtle and sexy, it seemed effortless. Highlights included a strapless blue gown that had a sheer bottom and train, a slinky, sexy shimmering black column dress with sheer cutout beneath the bust and on the chest, and, of course, three showstopping silver gowns that would make any celebrity stylist faint.
