Reem Acra Fall 2008
Where & When: Thursday, February 7th at 3 p.m. in the Promenade, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Red-carpet regular Reem Acra could do the Grecian-goddess look in her sleep, so I found the draped charmeuse dresses in the middle of the show a bit old-hat. Thankfully, she started out with some Mad Men-inspired sweater-and-skirt separates and finished with breathtakingly glamorous, exquisitely detailed evening gowns. If the Oscars actually happen this year, look for her designs on the red carpet; if not, our loss.
Standout Look: This nude dress had a sequined black overlay that, as the model (the gorgeous Bruna Tenorio) walked down the runway, exploded like the flashbulbs of so many cameras. To. Die. For.
Bonus Points: Not only did model Chanel Iman subtly smirk whenever she walked past front-row fixture Tyson Beckford (who was plying her with "You go, girl!" cheers), but closer Jessica Stam broke out in a full grin when the audience applauded her as the music ran out and she was still only halfway down the runway. Models: They're just like us! (Well, not really...)
Where to Buy: The Reem Acra boutique at 14 E. 60th St.
