Zac Posen Spring 2013

Zac Posen’s elegant collection got off to a dramatic start with supermodel Naomi Campbell opening the show in an  expertly cut feminine sweetheart-neck printed dress with a flippy hem. What followed was a string of ‘40s inspired romantic dresses in Posen’s signature corset bodice and jaw-dropping gowns replete with red-carpet trains and beautiful extras such as embroidery, chiffon, organza, tulle and pleating – which Posen has long proven himself to be a master of manipulating and mixing. Dresses weren’t all Posen had to offer. He showed an undeniably sophisticated skirt suit, wide-leg trousers, peplum tulle bustier and a silk jumpsuit. It’s nearly impossible for us to pick our favorite looks from this fanciful collection, but here are a couple that we bet would make Cinderella’s wish list, especially the white bridal-like gown that closed this retro glamorous show.
