This week Gwyneth Paltrow stunned at the 2011 Bambi Awards wearing an embellished emerald Elie Saab gown in Germany. The entire look was perfect, from her bright blond hair, to the sparkling diamond necklace, Paltrow made this Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 dress come alive! On another note, Kate Middleton looked stately as she donned a flawless, classic Jenny Packham gown, as she wore a poppy in remembrance of military veterans.
On September 12, Jenny Packham gave New York City a preview of her Summer 2012 collection. She sent her stunning models down the runway in light, airy, comfortable dresses. I must admit, this may be my favorite show so far. I am in love with everything in this collection. The draping is delicate, the lace is dainty and ornate. The silk fabric is simple and elegant, yet glamorous aswell! I am very fond of the lack of styling Packham used for the show. The models’ simplistic look let the dresses speak for themselves and shine even more! My personal favorite is the delicate red dress with the high slit, I think we will be seeing many of these on the red carpet this coming award season – and I can’t wait!
“Spring Summer 2012 is inspired by gleaming skies of opal whites and azure blues, painted with lavish glittering brush strokes and arresting vivid rainbow hues of geranium reds, sunset oranges, lemon-drop yellows and citrus limes,” ending with dazzling encrusted Swarovski crystals in radiant gold.” – Jenny Packham on her most recent collection.
