Alberta Ferretti Fall 2011

Much like the Philosophy Fall 2011 collection, the Alberta Ferretti Fall 2011 presentation opened with 60s inspired coats and dresses on a colourful palette of purple, eggplant, teal and orange.

A-line above the knee dresses had graphic prints adorned with crystal details. Others had delicate ruffles which ooze that sweet femininity we all expect from Mrs Ferretti collections.

Coats also had the same graphic print embellished details.

I was keen to see the gowns which entered the runway from look 40.

We saw flutter sleeves, one-shoulder detail, haltered necklines and stunning shimmering embellishments.

I hoping Look 40 is being shipped to LA for Sunday’s Oscars as I type.

Key accessories included velvet thigh-high boots some of which were embellished.

Favourites: Printed sleeveless jumpsuit and ice blue beaded gown

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Demi Moore, Sophia Bush, Christina Ricci, Kristen Bell, Becky Newton, Dita Von Teese, Carrie Underwood, Moon Bloodgood, Paz Vega and Vera Farmiga

Soundtrack: Adele – Rolling In The Deep (remix)

    Beautiful fabrics!
    FC, I really like the Look 40, but I think it’s difficult to imagine it on a Oscar red carpet: who do you think could pull it off?

      Helen Mirren…???

        Yep! That’s right! I didn’t think about her. I thought maybe Cate Blanchett but the color might not suit her…

    I think this may be my overall favorite collection (at least so far). The thigh-high velvet boots look like the perfect accessory for a wheelchair, don’t you think?

    And IMO #40 would look good on almost anyone, but especially the slightly older ladies. Maybe Annette Benning?
