Fashion Week Part Deux

As promised, I will now be showing you my hits and misses from the adam+ eve show. The designer is Adam Lippes, who was previously at Polo/Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta, and it shows people. I found most of the stuff to be very fun, luxe but still effortless and casual. Refreshingly different from the couture shows. I wish every show were sportswear!
The really great thing about Adam+Eve, were the models! Attractive models! How novel! Although, someone had this bright idea:
Why the doorag, Adam? While I love this shirt (perhaps stripes are in this season, hmm?) I simply cannot get behind the headgear. Luckily, this gal was spared the indignity:
And, bonus!, she got to wear this beautiful dress. I am so in love with the dress, it's killing me. I'm so glad yellow is still in. This shade is much fresher though.
We get some boys strutting their stuff here too. Let's see, this is a yes:
Oh, sorry, this is a definite no:
Black sneakers with your crisp white pants? For shame! Also, you kind of look like Richard Kiel...I don't know how I feel about that.

Yes, it wasn't all good...here's a better view of that doorag:

But overall Adam+Eve is my favorite show so far. It doesn't have such stiff competition however. Take Erin Fetherston for instance. I've been hearing all kind of buzz on her, she's the next big thing blah blah blah, so I was very excited to view her show. Well, oh my:

Here's your show opener. A turban? Look, I know y'all are trying to bring the turban back, but I'm afraid (read: I hope to god) it ain't gonna happen. And y'know, if you're going to try, you might as well do it right and put it on a model whose head can handle it. Lord knows it's not this girl.

You may notice that this model's eyes look kind of weird. I was seriously disturbed by this because it turns out to be a reoccurring theme and I couldn't really believe that it was done purposely. But it was! These girls have their eyes covered in powdery white! Here's a close up look so you don't get all freaked at further pictures like I did:Sorry, I know that model's neck is terrifying. So, are models doing coke through their eyelids now, is that what's going on? Christ. Enough, back to the clothes.

Snoooooooooze....God it's so boring. And ugly. Ugly and boring. And don't forget dreary!
I did have my favorite though, this little swimsuit inspired number:
It's pretty and fun, everything the rest of this collection was not. It's flirty without looking like it was made for a child, like this dress:

Sigh. The highlight for me though, was this model:

I think she's absolutely stunning. I had to keep going back to look at her. I don't know who she is, but I will be definitely be doing some research because she is practically a vision. Anyone who can outshine these clothes has got some chops.

Tomorrow, Vena Cava and more!

Thanks for the show!
I'm dumbstruck by the white eye shadow. Couldn't see the clothes for the racoon look. I thought everyone knew that's not a good look.
But I completely agree about that last model! She's stunning!
