Diane von Furstenberg Fall Winter 2013

Many years ago I read an article about the campaign for Clinique’s perfume Happy. They talked about how the set was filled with baby rabbits and puppies so that the models looked very happy (and I am pretty sure a few of them ended up in the campaign.) I thought about this when I saw the first look on Diane von Furstenberg‘s catwalk, the model looked genuinely happy. Not all of them have that same radiant smile, but it is really refreshing to see models smiling, instead of those serious gazes that make us forget that fashion can actually be fun. This collection featured a lot of seventies dresses and pantsuits, bold prints, and very classic but sexy evening wear, that all looks very wearable with a touch of fun.

I love…

a sexy seventies dress. And a model who looks genuinely happy!

a few tweaks to the wrap dress that makes it look a little bit new.

this very bold pantsuit. But very few would be able to pull this off.

a striking royal blue chiffon dress.

when a dress is simple, pretty, and super easy to wear.

I loathe…

that this dress makes the model look very boxy.
