Lela Rose Fall 2011

When & Where: Sunday, February 13 at 11 a.m., the Studio, Lincoln Center
Runway Recap: At a Lela Rose show, one can expect several things: ladylike day dresses, chic cocktail sheaths, and glamorous evening looks. The question is in what way she'll present all of this, but undoubtedly, it will all be feminine and pretty. This season, Rose was inspired by contemporary artist Gerhard Richter, who's known for hazy, obscured images, and the result was a layered effect, with soft edges, dip-dyed prints and veil-like layers of sheer fabrics. Rose's famed sheath dresses were present, of course, but they and the daytime separates were enhanced with beautiful folds and draping, both of which added to the overall veiled theme. The effect throughout was soft and beautiful, and judging by the packed audience's reaction, sure to please die-hard Lela Rose clients.
Standout Look: The series of evening dresses at the end were all stunning, but this was my favorite, an ombré silk dress brushed with silver to create an iridescent effect. It looked ethereal, and the fit was impeccable.
Bonus Points: Lela Rose always has great gift bags; today's were filled with useful items like Commando underwear, Stila tinted moisturizer, and homemade cookies!
