Jason Wu’s Spring 2013 collection can be summed up in two words: leather and lace.
Iconic supermodel Carolyn Murphy, who opened the show wearing a fitted leather dress with lace panels, was followed by a succession of gorgeous models sporting a braided, marcel wave updo.
Inspired by Helmut Newton’s photography, the mostly black and white collection had pops of coral and blue, which will no doubt delight his celebrity clientele.
The collection was full of Jason’s signature girlie girl looks, but for Spring 2013 Miss Wu will showcase her flirty side.
I’m hoping Miss Lively will select some of the uber-sexy, lingerie-inspired pieces for which the designer collaborated with La Perla.
The collection wasn’t all about feminine and sexy dresses; we also saw black fitted pants lined with lace, a beautiful printed jumpsuit with a cute leather belt with a bow accent, uber hot pants, high-waisted shorts and bralets styled with A-line skirts.
For the red carpet, Jason delivered four gorgeous gowns with sheer skirts, which I’m sure his BFF Diane Kruger will be showcasing on a red carpet soon. I especially loved the navy star print gown.
Key accessories included hatboxes, travel cases and First Lady-esqe top handle bags, some with animal print accents.
