From the Runway to the Closet

We love covering fashion here on this blog — my old assistant (Gabby) is now working at Oscar de la Renta (yipee and congrats!) and our Contributing Editor, Jenny Levin, used to be the Senior Fashion News Editor at Harper’s Bazaar and is author of the book StyleWe’ve written many times about Carolina Herrera (who doesn’t), so it’s no surprise that when I had an event to attend last weekend, I chose one of the designer’s Resort 2011 designs:

I’ve long admired the color pink and this ethereal creation was incredibly comfortable and fun to wear!  The collection had been dubbed as feminine and romantic — and said the “blossom pink textured organza strapless dress was an understated, modern knockout”.  I loved the cascading, draping ruffles and the slight train which gave a nice sweep.  Okay, so the model above clearly “wears it better” but three kids later, it was a treat to fit into anything designed by one of my fashion favorites!

    You look beauitful and every bit as elegant as the model! As a fellow pink lover, I love this gown. I bought a beautiful CH yellow gown a few years back and love it today as much as I did the day I bought it. This gown is gorgeous and such a timeless classic much like CH herself…..
