Lela Rose Fall 2009
Where & When: Sunday, February 15th at 10 a.m., the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Very few things get me out of bed before noon on a Sunday, but Lela Rose's lovely fall collection was definitely worth the few hours of missed sleep. Inspired by an enchanted forest, Rose interpreted the theme with petal-like tiered dresses in rich purples, gorgeous ombré pailettes that sparkled like waterfalls, and greenish prints that recalled a forest canopy. After so many shows where black, gray, and cream dominated, seeing so many gorgeous colors was completely refreshing. Feminine, but not precious, the collection is sure to win Rose some new fans.
Standout Look: With so many breathtaking dresses, it was hard to pick a favorite, but I loved how Rose took a simple, strapless column dress and transformed it into pure beauty with flatteringly placed pleats.
Bonus Points: Yay for corporate sponsors! The swag bag contained Ted Gibson hairspray, Arcona eye serum, and a Stila smoky-eye palette, all courtesy of Beauty.com.
Where to Buy: Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf's, Nordstrom, and more locations at LelaRose.com.
