Can’t make it to NYC for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week? Don’t worry, OK!’s got you covered! Yesterday we checked out Carolina Herrera’s runway show for a sneak peek at the designer’s collection and loved every minute of it!
SHOW: Carolina Herrera
WHEN: Feb. 14, 2011
WHO: Gabrielle Union, Christina Hendricks, Tinsley Mortimer, Nina Garcia, Anna Wintour
FASHION: Classic and clean, sophisticated designs with touches of sparkle and sequins. A color palette of gray, brown, white and black were enhanced by bright splashes of red, burgundy, aqua, and purple. Trends included heels without platforms, fur trimmed outerwear, funky sleeves, and dramatic evening gowns. One stand out piece was a bright red fur coat.
BEAUTY: Hair pulled back in neat buns by Orlando Pita at Orlo Salon for Moroccan Oil, Make up was minimal and chic and done by Diane Kendal and the MAC pro team
COLOR/OVERHEARD: Anna Wintour sat in the front row along with Mad Men star Christina Hendricks who wore a Carolina Herrera dress to the show. Christina is such a fan of the designer that this is the only show she plans on attending during Fashion Week. Another attendee at the show was Gabrielle Union who told OK! that she loves Carolina Herrera because her designs are “classic and effortless.” She added that Carolina’s collection reminds her to be “a little bit more appropriate” when picking out her wardrobe.
Fashionista socialite, Tinsley Mortimer, also grabbed a front row seat at the show. Her favorite trend at Carolina Herrera? “Although they’re painful, heels without platforms. Kind of like the ones I’m wearing today.” Already ahead of the trend, Tinsley! Cheers to being fashion forward.
