New York Fashion Week Coverage Spring 2012 Lela Rose Show

The Spring 2012 Lela Rose Fashion Show was a celebrity studded event and showcased the designer's affection for ladylike elegance. Although the collection was inspired by Rose's trip to the Neon Museum in Las Vegas earlier this year, the pieces aligned with soft watercolor paintings rather than urban neon signs. Sheath dresses and pencil skirts in muted gray with pops of neon mustard and tangerine served as the starting point for the collection. It then experienced a crescendo of bright blocks of purple and orange on cream silk dresses and structural jackets. I was visibly excited when I saw the evening wear as the models seemed to glide down the runway in the slightly ruffled, mildly voluminous, tightly corseted gowns.

Front Row: Eva Amurri, Mandy Moore, Brad Goreski, Joanna Hillman

The Fabulous: Eva Amurri (Susan Sarandon's daughter) and bride-to-be looking like a front row veteran (Rose is designing her wedding gown), a soft but varied color palette, cascading evening gowns, eclectic mix of colors and silhouettes.

Mandy Moore looks ravishing and thinner than ever.

Joanna Hillman, Market Editor at Harper's Bazaar and my new style inspiration!

Eva Amurri. Tall and Gorgeous!
