NYFW: Lela Rose + Stila Show Off a Great Fall 2009 Collection. Beauty.com Carries the Cosmetics NOW!
As NYFW has already kicked off, it’s really interesting to see the variety of runway shows and collections and it’s definitely going to be covered in greater detail by Nancy Lichtenstein, a regular contributor here when it comes to all things fashion.
One of the haute shows from the 2/15 collections was Lela Rose. As Marilyn Kirschner reports from DFR (Daily Fashion Report) on lookonline.com ran a serious review on the collection. I had already run through this show and pulled my favorite images but here’s what Kirschner had to say about Lela Rose’s Fall 2009 show.
Ombre green dress might not be everyone’s perfect color but the style and dynamic use of color was interesting.
As for the Lela Rose show. it was certainly an upbeat way to start the day. Her show notes promised the “notion of an enchanted forest and all its magical creatures, and a kaleidoscope of colors” (which it delivered), in addition to the layering, inventive texture, pattern, and fabric mixes, which have come to be a signature of this popular label. Ms. Rose was adept at mixing tweeds with plaids and stripes with checks, as well as mixing day for night, by adding subtle touches of shine through sequins and the use of antiqued spun gold. Nothing seemed forced or overdone, and it made a statement. I particularly liked the way sporty shapes were transformed into something special, through the use of unexpected fabrics, inventive mixing, and layering (a big trend on the runways thus far and which looks especially relevant at the moment). These were wearable yet special pieces and the overall effect was young, modern, and effortlessly glamorous and except for 5 thinly belted long dresses at the end, everything was short and leggy.
Here are some photos of my favorites:
Love this dress for it’s depth of color, wearability day to night and general style.
This burgundy dress speaks to me so loudly that I am dying to get this!
Sighing because right now is not the time to be buying or contemplating this dress (the economy speaks to me as it does to you). However the receipt of an email from Stila about the Lela Rose show got my attention because Stila put together a collection from the Lela Rose show and partnered with Beauty.com to sell this collection *right now*.
Stila Backstage with Lela Rose and Beauty.com contains four key products used by every artist backstage at the Spring 2009 fashion show.
Stila Sun Shade 02 was used to bronze the models’ cheekbones. This bronzer is known for its amazing buildable color, which makes it a makeup artist favorite season after season.
Lip Glaze in Cranberry gave a pop of color to the models’ pouts.
Eye Shadow in Starlight let the lids shimmer with a champagne glow.
Major Lash Mascara in Brown gave the models long, luxurious lashes. The Brown shade helped to create a balanced, feminine face.
All of these products are housed in an adorable signature Stila hat box and includes a mini version of the actual face chart used backstage at the fashion show!
You can get this collection on Stilacosmetics.com or beauty.com for only $34.00!!
