How many bold-faced names can you fit into one runway presentation? If you’re Sophia Kokosalaki, lots. And we mean lots.
There were more fashion and entertainment industry heavyweights at the designer’s presentation for Diesel Black Gold on Tuesday than we’ve seen at perhaps any other presentation this week. Chace Crawford sat between Paz de la Huerta and Vanessa Hudgens while Keri Hilson chatted with Wyclef Jean. Padma Lakshmi looked like she enjoyed the show — and so did another former model, Petra Nemcova.
But it takes a lot more than star power to make a good runway show, and Kokosalaki didn’t disappoint on that front. Her distinctly rock and roll looks were tempered by military touches on the men’s side (never have we wanted to wear a band jacket more than we do right now) and by layers of saturated, colorful clothes for women. If you’ve ever wanted to know how wearing leather bellbottoms would go over in your office, here’s your opportunity. The future is now.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
