One thing that I will state about Rodarte…they should be given a Couture license pronto. They show so much skill in their looks that is of the Paris shows. If they would ever need a replacement at the French fashion house they are the ones. They would be a perfect fit for Dior.
The van Gogh inspired collection is sure to be a red carpet favorite. The dress above on Joan Smalls is just amazing, the only thing that it is missing is Kate Hudson. The tiered dresses are also amazing. Another that is also great is the striped dress. The cut on that is just perfect. I can see Jessica Alba in that one. One thing that they do impeccably are their knits. The sweaters are great in this collection, like many others. You can click on the images below to see some of the looks.
Elizabeth Olsen was caught catching a flight out of Toronto, Canada with her dad. She wore a pair of the Nobody Empire Tube jeans in Reno. I’m so happy to see these on someone again. I love these jeans! They are probably one of the best that I have seen and probably one of the best that Nobody has ever come out with.
Elizabeth has really made a name for herself apart from her sisters. She has really gotten (and been rumored to be in) some movies with some big names attached. I am actually really interested in seeing Martha Marcy May Marlene. It has that thrill to it that really attracted to me. Buy Nobody Denim at DonnaIda.com.
The Alexander Wang show this season was all about graphics. Everything from the prints to the backdrop (one of the best I have seen). He also had the return of Hilary Rhoda to the runway at his Spring 2012 show. The show featured looks that were inspired by athleticism. They had looks that ranged from motocross to golf to swim. Not much was left out.
He also kept with the trends of this season. There were florals (something new for Alexander), perforation/eyelets, paneling, and color blocking. There are quite a few pieces that I favor from this season. The sweaters in particular. I just love the print on them. They have a graphic, tribal feel to them. I also think the leggings are going to be a popular one. Another thing that was amazing was the leather dress on Liya Kebede. That is going to be worn by someone on the red carpet. The white dress on Britt Maren is also a lovely one that is just asking for a magazine cover. You can click through a few of the looks below.
Here are two new styles by Current/Elliott that I am loving right now. These are the Ankle Skinny in Rum Raisin (above) and the Ankle Skinny in Cherry (below). I love the tones that many are using in their washes this fall, but these would have to be one of the top pairs that I have seen.
The Rum Raisin would have to be my favorite. I love the brown with the hint of maroon in it. I also like that they have some worn-in spots around the edges. The cherry is also great. I think they got the color right on from the fruit itself. It is deep red and bold. Which do you readers like? Click here to purchase the Rum Raisin and here for the Cherry.
