Oscar, Bill, Zac, J. Mendel
Oscar de la Renta: his usual crew of admirers won't be disappointed. The blue & brown Cossack inspired coat, a gathered skirt with three horizontal blocks of color: black, blue, and yellow, paired with an embroidered sweater. Hits: A rust skirt paired with a shimmery, silver studded sweater; a chocolate embroidered/encrusted sweater with matching skirt.
Bill Blass: lots of tweeds, suits, lots of gray. A grey top and snakeskin skirt combo was cute. One nice touch: a copper silk obi with skinny purple tie.
J. Mendel: black, white, tweeds, burgundy, rose. The knockout was a rose chiffon grecian number, with same-fabric binding around the knees and trail of chiffon. The red velvet skinny pant suit, brown velvet pencil skirt with inch-wide sequin stripe embroidered vertically on on side, and skinny brown velvet pant paired with a chiffon blouse and earth toned fur chubby -- all great. Also rockin: strapless, fitted black cocktail sheath with deco-style silver adornment over the bust and a sheer lace hem overlayed with a flirty fringe of black feathers that move when you do.
Zac Posen: greys and camels. Grey clamdiggers & pencil skirts, and a nice dove gray ruffled goddess-worth gown. The pale gray silk greek inspired gown with train -- which he also showed in a pale lavender -- sure winners!
