Vera Wang was another mixed bag for me. I thought there were some fabulous pieces. In particularly the patterned silk chiffon dresses worn by Jaclyn Joblanski and Arizona Muse at the end were pretty fabulous. I was less convinced by the dusty pinks and greens. The black looks were fabulous, but seemed out of place.

I'm really interested to see the Herve Leger show at 2.

I didn't like it that much. I used to like his early bondage stuff more.

I wasn't crazy about the dusty color palette or the gladiator shoes, but there were some good cocktail dresses.

I think my issue is I like fall/winter better, there's so much more to see. And I don't take most of the men's fashion seriously, the guys are just hot to look at.

It's fun watching, though. I tried to walk like some of the models, with one foot directly in front of the other. No success ! lol

Just finished watching Narciso Rodriguez. For me, it was by far the best show I've seen this entire week.

I tried to walk like some of the models, with one foot directly in front of the other. When did this become the way to walk? Many of them even cross the stepping foot over the path of the other. Between the way they have to pick up their feet to do this and the ridiculous platform shoes that are the vogue these days, most of the models look like emaciated Clydesdale horse, clippedy-cloppedying down the runway.

And in the Leger show in particular, they looked like sacks of bones. Sacks of bones wrapped in bandages clippedy-cloppedying around the trackrunway.

When I took a modeling class waaaaaay back in 1983, this is how they taught us to walk. For those of us with no hips, it's supposed to give the illusion of a figure. Or something. My instructor was kind of insane....

Crossing keeps a model from swaying side to side and bobbing up and down as she walks. It requires the model to pick up her feet. A small amount of cross without the Clydesdale stomp seems attractive to me.

ITA, along with Madame Herrera and Zac Posen, some of the most :swoon: looks of the week!

ETA: HUGE props to Costello Tagliapietra! IMHO, it makes perfect sense that two bears would know how to make garments that could be worn comfortably by women of MANY different body types. :respec:

I could have done without the fur-like pieces at J. Mendel and the models' hair, but I liked his colors and the sleek, flowing styles.

Wow, Michael Kors was surprisingly tacky and boring at the same time, imho. :wideeyes: :yawn:

Think the old guy is starting to have "taste issues." Wonder if he'll be the next aufee.

Marchesa was :swoon: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/S2012RTW-MARCHESA

Another really interesting collection was Olivier Theysken's line Theyskens' Theory: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/S2012RTW-TTHEORY

I thought Tory Burch had a really strong commercial collection. A lot of women would love to wear those clothes.

For once, I was very mixed about Rodarte. I generally think they are beyond fabulous, but I felt there were some real misses here. I didn't like the prom dress silhouette, but I thought some of the more simple pieces were amazing.

For me, Narciso Rodriguez is still, far and away the best collection of the week: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/S2012RTW-NRODRIGU

I'm really curious to see what Marc Jacobs does tomorrow night.
