Nina Garcia Dishes on Style After Baby

Usually around this time of year, Nina Garcia is sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week.

But this time, the mom-of-two — who recently welcomed son Alexander, 3 months — swapped couture for some kid-friendly fun with older son Lucas, 4 this month, at the 20th Annual Bunny Hop held at FAO Schwartz in New York City on March 8.

“Usually, I’m at shows and I always miss it, [but] I just had the baby so why not come and support something so wonderful,” Garcia told PEOPLE at the fundraising event.

Along with other celeb moms including Tina Fey and Kelly Rutherford, the fashionable twosome enjoyed everything from life-size bunnies and Eleni‘s cupcakes to magicians and deviled eggs.

So, does the always-stylish new mother have a new dressing routine?

“I have to constantly think about what I’m going to wear the day before because it’s very busy in my house in the mornings now. So I just plan things a little more carefully,” said the Marie Claire fashion editor, who donned a simple silver frock, black tights and heels.

And even though she missed the European shows, the Project Runway judge still has her eye on the latest trends.

“I love what’s happening in New York. [A lot] of up and coming designers are emerging. It’s their time and that’s very exciting.”

I have nothing against her, but she wears that dress and then comments on people working against the clock to come up with an outfit? (Project Runway) Kind of weird.

not flattering dress. Shapeless boxy and shiny. looks like something badly chosen from the sale rack.

That dress is not right for her. It looks like something a young kid would wear to Sunday school (minus the shiny material)

Lucas Alexander is so pretty ! I’ve never seen a photo of him before and he is so cute.
I think it’s great her choice, but come on, she needs a bra. Nina get up !

How cute! He looks just like his mother, and she reminds me of Jools Oliver for some reason, Jamie Oliver’s wife.

Megan I agree with you! The dress does not look like something a 45 year old woman should wear.

To me Nina looks like a little girl here! When I first saw this photo I thought it’s some celeb pre teen with her little brother haha, until I looked closely and saw her face. As a project runway fan this woman being the judge on the show doesn’t dress all that great to me. She’s just very plain and lot of her outfits are shapeless, but that’s just my opinion. Anyways, Alexander is cute and so is his little outfit.

Nella- It’s Lucas in the picture. Alexander is the new baby. 🙂 Anyway, I think she looks great!

People need to give the woman a break – she just had a baby and is probably not feeling up to wearing tight, form-fitting clothes. On another note – anyone else think she looks just like Sofia Coppola?
