Our homegirl Karlie Kloss opened the show in a navy blazer, red latex top, and cream skirt with a thigh-high skirt. More borderline office-appropriate looks in neutral and bright hues, and plaid patterns, leather detailing, and lace iterations followed. The models sported messy beehive updos, but de la Renta added punky and colorful streaks to their tresses, in shades of neon pink, teal, and canary yellow.
Then came the fancy frocks and dreamy dresses that the 80-year-old design icon is known for. A-line designs with lace overlay, strapless stunners, architectural gowns with vertical stripes, silk jumpsuits with all-over embellishments, and tulle creations dotted with latex flowers came down the runway. Models walked at a leisurely, but not slow pace, so everyone was able to appreciate the beauty of the clothes.
The show finished with an extravagant light turquoise, feathered gown, a colorblocked pink and turquoise mullet dress, and finally, a beaded dusty gray showstopper. Of course, Kloss was the closer and she killed it. Or rather, InStyle‘s Hal Rubenstein nearly killed her when he jumped out of his seat and onto the runway right in front of the model before the finale even walked. He was trying to beat the crowd leaving the showroom, which was another situation, but let’s just focus on the show and clothes.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
