Zac Posen managed to coax many supermodels out of retirement for his Spring 2013 show.
Considering how stunning this collection was, I’m not surprised they wanted to be a part of this show, which was opened by the most iconic catwalker of them all, Naomi Campbell.
The fashion crowd tried to play it cool, but we were all very excited at this supermodel sighting. She kick-started proceedings wearing a hibiscus-print chiffon day dress with Manolo Blahnik shoes and David Webb jewels.
40s glamour served as the inspiration for this divine red-carpet-ready collection, but it wasn’t all about the gowns.
I do love a good suit, so I was delighted to see a lemon suit with pleated lapels, impeccably tailored skirt suits and a jumpsuit paired with a blazer.
Pin-tucked blouses paired with a pencil skirt or wide-legged pants, and printed, corseted, draped, tulle day dresses served as the appetizers for the main event: the gowns.
From look 22 I was in heaven, as every type of gown imaginable, from a slim silhouette to ballgowns with frothy tulle skirts, was presented.
The biggest gasp of the night was, of course, provided by Coco Rocha.
No Zac Posen show is complete without the supermodel closing it, and she did so in style wearing a white jacquard organza tiered ballgown.
Models tend not to smile on the runway, but even Coco couldn’t stop beaming in this stunning gown which fulfils every girl’s princess fantasy.
