Most models turned designers just don't do it for me. Something in the designs seems almost insincere to me as if they want to hold on to strutting the catwalk so badly they will create a collection and then walk out following it for that feeling of the hot lights on their face, the flash of cameras glistening in their eyes, the hushed breath of the audience, the pressure to not fall flat on your face. However, I have never taken that impression away from a L'Wren Scott collection - a former model turned designer in 2006. In fact, Scott's show has been one of my favorites this season and I don't have anything bad to say about any of the pieces she sent sailing down the runway on golden sails. My only complaint is, I can not seem to choose a favorite. Can you?
Is anyone else completely enamored with the gold as much as I am?? Opulence, color and texture all are themes that I can stand behind and as you can see L'Wren Scott spun gold around these bodies - literally! The shoes and most of the dresses were actually created using 23-karat gold leaf. Gold is the most valuable thing on the planet at the moment and Scott brought her designs to a new level of lavishness and luxury, maintaining functionality. I would love to be in the audience and be able to breath in the beauty of the gold thread as it sparkles and shines down the runway before disappearing and allowing yet another stunning ensemble to saunter forward.
