Rachel Roy’s Spring 2010 collection was inspired by the ‘40s screen sirens, ‘70s chic, and the ‘90s power suit.
The designers presentation statement was “elegant, strong and polished”.
Check, check and triple check. Mission very much accomplished.
The collection was full of sophisticated wearable pieces for every type of woman.
Roy’s focused on strong tailoring and draping. The collection was feminine, yet supremely powerful.
There were pants suits, skirt suits, blouses, fitted dresses, cropped jackets, tulip skirts and a mustard all-in-one.
The colour palette was very interesting. First up were a selection of soft neutral ivory and grey pieces, then there was an amazing burst of vibrant colours from mustard to cobalt blue to violet.
Every garment had a sleek fluidity about it due to the draping.
It all felt very effortless and seeing a very relaxed Rachel at the show this only confirmed that fact.
All the models in the show wore Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik heels, a collaboration that has been going for some time now. The heels were thonged sandals decorated with chains or studs, or pumps. All keeping in the strong powerful feminine mode.
Stunning collection. I was going gaga over the colourful pieces.
Despite being the human equivalent to a magpie and being instantly attracted to anything the sparkles, I’m not in love with Diane Kruger’s embellished Miu Miu mini dress as I don’t think it flatters her.
I feel like tugging the skirt down as it sits too high for my liking.
She completed her vixen look with bright red lips and black strappy heels.
Diane’s co-star Mélanie Laurent faired much better wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture black ensemble.
The look consisted of a black pencil skirt, patent waist belt and a sheer halter top, which she lined from the runway version.
There’s something about the neatness of her look that I’m drawn too. The sleek bob, the pencil skirt, the red Lulu Guinness lips clutch, her gold strappy Méchante of London’s ‘Elektra’ Rose python heels and the cleanliness of it all.
Not a hint of grunge in sight.
Alexa Chung’s style is not to my liking, but I do appreciate her shirt with a studded collar, plus her H&M skirt, but I can’t bare the greasy hair.
I don’t understand how greasy hair became so trendy.
Actress Julia Stiles looked smart and chic wearing a white satin dress, with an ivory criss cross detail that goes across her back.
She paired her dress with gold gladiator sandals and a white clutch.
Olivia Palermo bucked the short and sassy trend at this event and opted for a ruffled maxi Kate Moss for Topshop dress.
Although she does look elegant and she has added a pony tail to her trademark hairstyle, I can’t help feel a bit bored by her look.
The edgy New Yorker appears to have soften her look.
Melissa George made a huge statement wearing a bold red dress to this screening.
The star was very sophisticated in scarlet as she added black accessories including a studded peep-toes.
