  • Libertine Spring 2013 A Fun Mix Of Ethereal and Wild


    Libertine Spring 2013 Runway Review: The Spring 2013 Libertine collection was a like stepping through the looking glass into a colorful world of smashed kalidescopes and coming out covered in fairy dust!  A fun mix of ethereal and funky, vintage boudoir and quirky, tame and wild.  I think this may cater more to our Western edge girls over the East Coast black-out brigade, but I say work these colors wherever you can, because it truly makes fashion fun! >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS  There…

  • Ralph Lauren Collection Spring 2013 Matador On The Mind

    Ralph Lauren Collection Spring 2013

    Ralph Lauren Collection Spring 2013 Runway Review: Dont call it a costume affair as this landmark designer of easy-on-the-wear style has yet to disappoint  Opening with a selection of full-on looks with an ambiguous Spanish vibe (was it Spain, or Latin America on the mind?) the designer delivered a series of serious looks with an assortment of style notes to consider. Shawls, ponchos, Matador jackets, here, they all got the full-on Ralph Lauren treatment. Head-to-toe, each exit made for a…

  • Anna Sui Spring 2013 Playful, Solid Collection With De Rigueur Rocker Edge


    Anna Sui Spring 2013 Runway Review:  The most darling, goth girls rocked down the runway to a Ramones soundtrack at Anna Sui’s Spring 2013 show, reminding us that rock n’ roll will never die and it can indeed be pretty.  Very pretty. Sui remains consistent with her edginess by showcasing ripped stockings, metal studs, leather, and chain collars; and the sweetness comes in a slightly Victorian dollhouse way with pale pinks, intricate laces, poofy dresses, and jade pendants.  Then let’s throw in a…

  • Reem Acra Spring 2013- Striking. Stunning. Sexy. Period.


    Reem Acra  Spring 2013 Runway Review: Reem Acra showcases a stunning Spring 2013 collection of body conscious, evening wear that is nothing short of drop dead sexy.  All women should aspire this Spring to be escorted someplace with a need to wear one of these gowns; it will create a paparazzi following and have you feeling like a sexy Bond girl. A solid half of the collection had me lusting for pieces for upcoming Holiday season rather than airy Spring 2013;…

    Rachel Zoe Spring 2013 Runway Review:   Rachel Zoe unleashes her fierce, chic self onto the Spring 2013 runway and it’s really like every model strutting is a version of herself.  And not in a “I’m-so-fabulous” way, but in a “I’ve-got-style-DAMN-look-at-me-now” way; and it’s great!  For all you chic urban ladies out there, headed to the Soho House and Hotel Bel-Air, dress yourself in Rachel Zoe and the night is yours. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS  Impeccably soft, draped fabrics in petal pinks and jungle greens, sequins…

  • Vera Wang Spring 2013 Brims With Fall Hues and Lush Fabrics For a Seasonal Spin

    Vera Wang Spring 2013

    Vera Wang Spring 2013 Runway Review: A rather opulent Spring 2013 collection was seen today at Vera Wang and it rang with rich notes of Autumn. Yet, it translated into fitted, short Spring silhouettes which made it very new and awesome. When would you think to wear jewel tone brocades, heavy gold beading, and thick lace?  Not necessarily Spring! >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS But the Bermuda shorts, snug and sleeveless peplum shells, short, closely fit sheath dresses, and sleeveless jackets all…

    Jenny Packham Spring 2013 Runway Review: An elegant array of all things sparkling and shimmering made their way out on to the mirrored runway for Jenny Packham’s Spring 2013 collection of gowns, sheaths, and an occasional dressy suiting. The rhinestones, beading, and sequins were overwhelming but graceful due to their being paired with soft neutrals and faded sorbet colors. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS  For an evening event, anything formal, this woman is who to turn to as the entire collection has…

  • Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2013 Combines Structure With Draped Slouch For A Modern Edge

    Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2013

    Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2013 Runway Review: The Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2013 line is a mix of structure and draped slouch, with a very modern edge, and dark, some seemingly Autumnal colors – with a final splash of bright white. Cornejo keeps up the scuba-meets-day-wear trend, and showcases asymmetrical, slouchy dresses in bold graffiti-esque prints. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS I am particularly in love with the scuba material and curved structure it adds to the line with the variety…

    Chado Ralph Rucci Spring 2013

    Chado Ralph Rucci Runway Review: Ralph Rucci of Chado once again made a case for himself being the country’s most important other Ralph in the fashion game Never one to follow the mandate for trends, one of America’s closest allies with the world of Haute Couture, Rucci centered his signature sculptural silhouettes around riotous shouts of unabashed color. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS From ultra-deluxe fabric choices to meticulously crafted and conceived silhouettes, proportions and patterns, the maestro’s Midas touch was in…
