Hot stuff! The Fall Roberto Cavalli collection gave me a nice afternoon awakening. There is no doubt as to why Cavalli is a red carpet favorite....
Flowing, sexed up gowns belted at the waist, in addition to a low plunging neckline, are fan worthy. The warm tones made for a happy, sunshiney runway. Opulence was abundant with leather, fur, reptile skins, silk and leopard prints. An awesome art nouveau print was a lovely addition. There was a Grecian touch, as well as 70s and 80s seduction and power dressing. There were many metallics but this is one collection where I didn't mind it because it just works with the raw sensuality of Cavalli. Interesting to note: I thought this was a glammed up version of the Marc Jacobs Fall show with the Yves Saint Laurent references and bold suiting - Does anyone agree?
I have one issue though: jodhpurs? This is one fashion item that does not play well on this runway!
