NYFW Day 6: Glam metallics: Marchesa, Rodarte, Herve Leger & Oscar de la Renta
It’s all about the red carpet and metallic show-stopping dresses. Oscar hopefuls and A-listers keen to rock some seriously glamorous looks on the red carpet will no doubt be keeping Rodarte, Herve Leger, Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta’s opulent and super luxe collections in mind.
Marchesa (with a front row stuffed full of starlets) debuted some seriously sparkly dresses. Our favourite was a gold fringed number that looked a little flapper-esque. The shape of the gowns was more daring than a Disney princess look with ripples and embellishments plus clever sheer panelling. We predict we’ll see some of these incredible creations gracing a red carpet or

Rodarte channelled Van Gogh’s sunflowers to create a super sunny collection incorporating printed shiny fabrics and metallic accessories (love those shoes). There is usually a dark twist when it comes to Rodarte’s designs which almost always have a fairy tale element. The shapes of the gowns were toughened up princess shapes but the palette of gold, turquoise and deep blues were not in the least but sinister- think Van Gogh’s Starry Nights painting instead.

WAG favourite Herve Leger of the bandage dress fame produced an equally glam collection of body con metallics drawing strong influence from his previous collections. Indeed the bandage-like construction of dresses was still seen but with shots of metallics and interesting frills and knots, all in a nude and black palette. To be seen on XFactor soon?!

Oscar de la Renta opted for several floor-skimming dresses in metallic mustard taffeta. The black lace, incredible jewelled shoes and sheer luxurious volume of the dress is a definite red carpet win, although we love his slightly more understated blush feather flapper dress just as much.

For a seriously easy way to wear metallic’s from NYFW, check out Bobbi Brown’s ‘rose gold’ video from backstage of Rachel Roy’s collection, where she created a “rosy nude face!” According to Bobbi, “rose gold works for every skin tone,” yay!
