Fashion Week Scorecard: Vera Wang
The Show: Vera Wang
The Venue: The Promenade at Bryant Park, with the models entering the runway through a white Matisse-like cut-out backdrop.
The Models: '60s Italian movie-star teased, loose hair and black eyeliner.
The Look: Vera Wang makes clothes that you could just as easily display as wear. Each piece feels like a little work of art that you want to show everyone you know so they can marvel at its remarkable detail.
For fall, her mostly dark mini masterpieces included organza corsage and rosette appliques on jackets, skirts and dresses; draped tops that looked as if they had been molded into their curvey folds; silk scallops that had a feather-like quality; futuristic black coated fringe and, of course, her requisite crystals and sequins which were especially beautiful on cocktail dresses.
Wang kept it all from getting too precious with one of the best shoes of the season--a tough, black multi-buckle platform stiletto heel--as well as with long black leather gloves and piles of tiny twisted pearls that looked anything but lady-like.
What We Loved: The black paperbag-waist tuxedo trousers that flopped over the shoes and the layered tulle and organza skirts.
