Spring Fashion Week 2010 officially ended ten days ago, but I'm still taking my sweet time with coverage. Sorry for the delay folks. It isn't that I'm lazy, really. Rather, it's my weak attempt to make it all last longer... like slow licking a frozen yogurt cone from IKEA.
Without further ado, here's my take on Day 4 - Diane Von Furstenberg's stunning Spring show.
I was recently wowed by a few old photos of Diane VF but have to admit, the lady still looks pretty damn Von Fabulous. The woman behind the classic wrap dress wrapped us up in her bold Spring collection with saucy styles that were a little bit mystical and a little bit macrame with a whole lotta must-have pieces for the springtime nymphet.
This year's theme featured the idea of "looking into antiquity for effortless beauty". Models pranced down the U shaped runway in vibrant colors and prints oozing with ethic flavor, crimped hair styled with chic metallic wreaths, and bright oversized bangles piled high on their dainty little wrists. Only Diane could pull off high-end hippie, and she did it magnificently.
Who was there - Gossip Girl's Blake Lively and Michelle Trachtenberg, Rachel Zoe, Nina Garcia, Candice Bergen and 90210's Shanae Grimes.
Who was not there - Big news was that Project Runway's Tim Gunn wasn't invited for the first time in twelve seasons. I guess in terms of his friendship with Diane, he wasn't able to make it work.
