NYFW S/S 2012 – Zac Posen

Zac Posen SS12
Anyone call for red carpet glamour? New York, apparently, as Zac Posen recently returned from his two season stint in Paris. All it took was a second’s glimpse at his Spring/Summer 2012 collection to have the City That Never Sleeps welcome him back with expertly toned arms.

Anyone with an aversion to hourglass shapes and corsets…it is time to jump ship. Posen can give Coco Rocha mega hips, elongate and flare like the best of them, and charm the Spanx onto any woman. He knows how to work a woman’s body. As always, much of the inspiration was from Old Hollywood, and the most impressive pieces were the – strapless, ombre, bustier, tulle, halter, satin, etc – gowns. I’m sure this post will be linked a lot during awards season.

On top of the voluptuous drama, the accessories were also a treat. Charlotte Olympia provided the complimentary footwear (in black, gold, nude and silver with a silver heel), Elizabeth Cole jewellery provided the ‘cherries on top’, Judith Leiber provided clutches, and sunglasses were provided by Illesteva. I wish runways would install shopping cart software.
