Field Report: Backstage At The Lela Rose S/S 2012 Fashion Show #NYFW

Everything old is new again. Lela Rose’s Spring ‘12 collection is a throwback to the golden-era of Las Vegas. There are elements of nostalgia cherry-picked from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, that work together well in this concerted tour de force. Ted Gibson’s side-parted twist is combined with spring smokey eyes and wild honey lips, which answers the question how once can look effortlessly glamorous on the desert frontier.
