Carolina Herrera Spring 2012

Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2012 collection was full of grown up feminine looks with clean lines and figure-enhancing silhouettes.

As always the designer served up a colourful palette of canary yellows, sage greens, ice blues and rosy reds.

The geometric and sparrow prints were very eye-catching. She used this strong print on delicate materials like chiffon.

Carolina upped the ante when it came to her red carpet gowns in the run up to awards season.

Beautiful light airy gowns fluttered down the runway. I can already picture many of them on the red carpet at the Kodak Theatre.

We also saw lightweight jackets pleated pants, knit sweaters and chiffon blouses.

Key accessories included bangles, scarves, bags and Manolo Blahnik for Carolina Herrera shoes.

Orlando Pita at Orla Salon pulled back the models hair into a low ponytail, whilst Diane Kendal gave the models a dewy glow using MAC cosmetics.

Front row: Renée Zellweger, Olivia Munn, Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour

      I agree it’s kinda strange, she’s quite famous now, but why was she invited at this fashion show? It’s kinda strange… Minaj and Wintour talking together…

    I am loving that picture of Anna Wintour and Nicki Minaj. What I wouldn’t give to be a fly in that room to hear what they talked about. I liked Carolina Herrera’s collection a lot this season.

    Thanks for all the updates on Twitter and for all you do with the site FC. Hope you enjoy the rest of NYFW before jetsetting back to London, then Milan, then Paris : )

    Anna Wintour: See darling, this is how you should be dressing.

    Nicki Minaj: You mean, you don’t like my fluffy ball outfit?

    Anna is saying something that is making Nicki smile – promising her a vogue cover maybe?

    Nicki Minaj on the cover of vogue – that would be a lol.
