Me and my model friends are back!

Purple was a predominate color in the shows. I adore the Luca Luca dress – showing the right amount of leg. The Prabal Gurung dress reminds me of a lot of long sleeve dresses that have been popping up on the red carpet during award season. The pattern on the Rodarte dress is sweet. Natalie Portman’s BFF’s frocks looked like they came from an art museum – they were all so beautiful!

The next set of dresses felt very normal-person-wearable to me. I was almost too distracted by the adorableness of the newest Beckham addition to even think about her collection (I kid). ADAM is showing that polka dots are a fall trend that will carry on into spring (worth the investment!). And Nicole Miller did some rad things with patterns – this is one example.

Sorry for this background in the pic – that was the setting for the Isaac Mizrahi show, BUT note that his first few models came down the runway in this springy pattern! I LOVE these looks (worth a full page). From the shape to the sequins to the bows – it was all divine! I’m watching out for the big florals. Note that Kate Spade was passing out bright pink flower pins to passerbys during Fashion Night Out.

Of course pastels are going to be popular for the spring. These stunners are simply beautiful. Love the feathers on Ralph Lauren. You know my heart is always with Christian Siriano. He also designed this really cool t and big skirt looks. And Jenny Packham – oh Jenny. She’s getting so much press from her show because the press wants to know if we will see Princess Kate in one of these gowns. I adore the detailing on this Packham piece.

Oh yeah, speaking of the Packham pieces…well I couldn’t get away with just posting one. Of course I was drooling over this whole collection. I mean sequins and glitter galore! The first gown reminded me a lot of the one that Kate Middleton wore in the U.S. Love the flower applique and color on the third one. The fourth dress got me with the color and squares. Finally the last one – ugh. Love the flowers.
