I had to run to the Naeem Khan Fall 2013 show, thankfully making it to my seat just before the show started.
The pain of running in 6 inch heels subsided quickly, replaced by an overwhelming delight at seeing a gorgeous black embellished gown as the first exit.
Naeem was clearly not going to waste time by building up to the glamour; he was giving it to us from the get go.
Velvet gowns with opulent embroidery, one-shoulder gowns, strapless, beaded, shimmering, sequined, and appliquéd lace gowns followed, along with cocktail dresses and embroidered coats; a stunning beaded pant look with a voluminous train got more than a second look, but my jaw hit the floor hard when a succession of three red gowns took to the runway.
I haven’t drooled this much since… well, the designer’s Spring 2013 show. Every look is a red-carpet-worthy look, but that is the reason I love the designer’s work so much.
Hopefully, Hollywood stylists are taking plenty of notes, because I hope to see at least two of these gowns on the red carpet on Oscar night.
