  • Tracy Reese Fall 2012 Runway Review & Fashion Show Photos

    Tracy Reese fw 12

    Runway Review: Tracy Reese gives us a colorful fall 2012 collection that balances strength with femininity with her use of punchy colors, large tropical prints, sturdy fabrics paired with draped silk, and silhouettes that accentuate the female shape. It’s refreshing to see a fall collection that isn’t dark and dreary, instead the saturated oranges, purples, aquas and yellows put a sunny spin on the cold months of the season. This line had some of the most wearable, flattering peplum shapes I have…

  • Herve Leger Fall 2012 Runway Review and Photos


    Runway Review: If you want a truly sexy LBD, you have come to the right designer. Sexy. Bondage. Need I say more about the Fall 2012 collection from Herve Leger?! There is not a chance, with all the leather straps, anatomical seaming, and skin-tight dense knits, that a woman can wear one of these slammin’ dresses and NOT exude supreme sexiness. No way.

The looks were completed and well-balanced with soft purple eye shadow and pouty geranium lips. Every sweater in this collection is going to…

    Runway Review: Heritage prairie inspiration with a dose of edge– and some of the best outerwear around. Fall 2013 from Nicholas K. takes you to the wild west prairie days, roughed up with an ample amount of dark edginess to boot, and a dose of old-school 90’s heroin chic played up with goth-ish hair dye. Sometimes a bit frightening! But not too terrifying, because the fabrications were flowy, easily draped on the body, and layered under soft furs and supple leathers…

    Jil Sander Navy Spring 2012

    Runway Review Snippet… Platform brogues punctuated a youthful, tomboyish and relaxed spirit from an otherwise characteristically utilitarian outing from Jil Sander's secondary line, Jil Sander Navy. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS While knife-pleated skirts and prim blouses made for a bulk of the collection, the real draw to the range came via a subversive and vaguely military ode to Girl Scouts and to uniform dressing as a whole.
