Donna Karan Fall 2012

Donna Karan’s Fall 2012 collection was inspired by Hollywood’s most androgynous icon, Marlene Deitrich.

On a colour palette of grey, red, midnight blue and black the designer served up seductive menswear for the sophisticated and spiritied woman.

The collection started with oversized pinstriped double-breasted coats, impeccably tailored skirts and pant suits, plus smart jackets with asymmetrical black satin panels to replicate cummerbunds.

Feminine pieces like body suits were given masculine touches as they were paired with tapered pants while the dresses had stiff cuffs.

The presentation didn’t solely focus on menswear. Donna Karan eased in some form-fitting dresses and evening gowns.

All the looks were teamed with an array of Stephen Jones hats perched to the side which varied in size, style and colour.

The presentation ended with Whitney Houston’s version of ‘I’m Every Woman’ playing in the background which had everyone singing along.

By everyone, you know I’m excluding Anna Wintour, right?

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Evan Rachel Wood, Tilda Swinton, Rose McGowan, Demi Moore, Sharon Stone, Susan Sarandon, Penelope Cruz, Amber Heard, Rooney Mara, Angeline Jolie, Diane Kruger and Diane Keaton

    The choice for Amber Heard is spot on.

    I’m not really loving this. I’ll have to study the collection more closely to see what I think…
