The Monterey housewives of HBO's Big Little Lies would've felt right at home at Michael Kors' New York Fashion Week show.

In the sun-drenched Spring Street Studios Wednesday, Kors kicked off the final day of fashion week with his spring 2018 presentation that was, according to the show notes, "all about ease."

The celebrity guests typified the show's grown-up, laid-back glamor, with Big Little Lies star Nicole Kidman sitting front row alongside Naomi Watts (who was almost cast alongside Kidman) and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Kors promised "Beverly Hills to Bora Bora" vibes, which explained the Hawaiian leis worn by several models on the runway. The rest of the collection wasn't quite as literal, but still featured daytime looks ready for a beach party or laid-back brunch with springy palm prints, blazers thrown over coordinated separates, tan trenches and ruffled dresses.

But warm-weather escapes require more than just casual day looks, and Kors delivered with chic patterned bathing suits with matching cover-ups for the beach, and slinky, heavily-sequined evening gowns for nighttime. 

Instead of the orchestral arrangements of his show last season, Kors smartly recruited Sara Bareilles to provide music. A favorite of Starbucks soundtracks and brunch playlists everywhere, Bareilles' vocals were a fitting accompaniment to the show, as she sang covers of classics including (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman in between her originals, closing the show with her hit Brave.

"It" girls Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid were spotted on the runway, but in keeping with the show's beachy feel, Kors' final look went to Sports Illustrated swimsuit star Kate Upton, who closed the show with her first-ever New York Fashion Week runway walk.
