Diane's the Man
What do Rachel Zoe, Salman Rushdie, Kelly Bensimon, Charlie Rose, Patricia Field and Lee Razdiwill all have in common??? Front row seating at Diane Von Furstenberg's coveted, glamfest Fall 2010 runway show, at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. When the house lights come up, it's almost as fun to see which of her A-List pals, from the world of publishing, fashion, business, politics and society are in da house, as it is to see the clothes.
Yesterday's show was KILLA!!! Fall is always juiciest! There is so much more that can be accomplished, with the luxe and luscious fabrics, that lend themselves to Fall clothes.
Diane's theme, was her own interest in "Metamorphosis". She tells us," I always wanted to live a man's life in a woman's body"...interesting concept and yet I believe her--to a point.
Even when she does introduce masculine elements, the silhouettes always feel deliciously feminine. She used laser cut chiffons, long knitted cardigans, metallics and panne velvets, in rich hues of navy, deep green, and black, and gorgeous wearable prints. All together the look was edgy but wearable...Throw a dart at any look on the runway and I guarantee you would be the coolest girl in the V.I.P lounge, coast to coast.
If that "girl" was DVF herself, definitely the coolest.
