Lela Rose’s vision of this season’s trends were more ethereal and feminine. We noted exaggerated eyelets and cutout details, embroidery, shimmering flowy fabrics and an overall flirty but classy vibe. Her A-list audience attendees like Mandy Moore, Susan Sarandon and Mariska Hargitay testify to the wearability and classic lines that define her collections. Her unique twist for summer 2012 was incorporating a sherbet palette, especially in some unconventional color blocking and mosaic and floral prints.
Standout trend: Unique fabrics, bold details and embroidery gave her classic signature sheath style dresses new life when paired with flatteringly structured shoulder sleeves.
How to get the look: Effortlessly flowing hair got a bedhead boost with a bit of volumizer and tousling. Make a side part, and take the first inch of hair framing your face, then proceed to twist across and downs towards your ear. Incorporate the other sections of hair like a French braid –but twisting only- until you can secure it behind your ear with bobby pins. Don’t forget to complete your girly look with a pretty pink gloss for your pout.
Who makes it work: Uptown ladies who want a fresh take on classic silhouettes that are feminine and figure flattering.
