Lela Rose Fall 09 Runway Show


With the deluge of edgy, punked out looks parading down the runway, Lela Rose offered a nice reprieve. The ultra feminine designer has always been a pro at toeing the line between feminine and figure conscious without being saccharine sweet.

This season marks another success in that department. An understated palate incorporated a wide range of colors from blues to mustard yellow and a shadowy magenta. Shapes alternated from structured and oversized to belted coats and jackets to show off the waist.

Safari inspired knits and a blue jacket with strong shoulders stood out against her beautiful cocktail and evening dresses, but I like the idea of pairing them together.
