Carlos Miele's Brazilian Party
You gotta hand it to the Brazilians. They know how to have fun.
A bunch of guys with drums were at the front of the runway, drumming the entire time. It even got the crowd - this is a NY fashionweek crowd we're talking about here - clapping along at the Carlos Miele show. Take a moment to picture that, especially the sunglasses-indoor types.
Inspired by the headdresses and traditional dyeing techniques of indigenous Brazilian Indians, Miele sent out fun look after fun look of flowy chiffon dresses, sexy shrugs, polka dots, explosions of color, and one fur coat that looked like it was covered in a soft, downy layer of feathers.
The stunner? Karolina Kurkova came strutting out in this rock 'n roll worthy beige cashmere duster, covered in sparkles, embroidered lace, with a lush feather hem and collar. I have five words: um um UM um um.
