Tadashi Shoji’s Spring 2011 presentation was inspired by the Renaissance frescos of Piero della Francesca and Botticelli.

His cool colour palette consisted of mostly ivory, stone, ice, baby blue and lavender.

I preferred the setting of this presentation over a runway show, because this way I could take in the elegance and feel the romanticism of the collection.

Water-colour caftans, off-the shoulder dresses, column gowns, asymmetrical ruffled dresses decorated with paillettes, lace and intricate embroidery were presented within this truly desirable collection.

Let’s pray we see this collection on the red carpet soon.

Favourites: One-shoulder grey gown with ruffles on the neckline and hem, plus the lavender one-shoulder ruffled mini dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jayma Mays, Lea Michele, Kristen Stewart, Christina Applegate, Anna Kendrick, Amber Heard, Fan Bingbing, Lucy Liu, Dakota Fanning and Emmy Rossum
