Designers are dreaming, and their visions are romantic and beautiful. Soft ruffles, silk rosettes, layers of delicate chiffon draped and spun into feminine silhouettes. These women are heading somewhere ethereal and I want to join them. Poetic ballgowns cascaded down the runways in soft, muted tones conveying an underlying message of mystic and escapism. The bold princess who has seen too much, but will never tell.
Rodarte’s vision of dark, elegant gowns in black and contrasting bright colors floated down the runways with cutout details in chiffon layers.
Nina Ricci’s collection exaggerated proportion with mini skirt hemlines in the front, and wedding train lengths in the back in sheer fabrics and feminine, rose details.
Chanel adds layer after layer of striped chiffon and beaded tulle decorated with a metallic trim and draped in signature, chanel chains and bows.
Roberto Cavallli’s explosion of tulle and silk in a dirty grey makes a bold statement on the runway.
Dolce and Gabbana are in full bloom with an empire ballgown covered in roses on an exaggerated poof, skirt.
Practical? Not really, but you will definitely see these magical looks on the red carpets this season and possibly at a few weddings. Who wouldn’t want to be a princess for a day?
