New York Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Diane von Furstenberg

If Diane von Furstenberg were in high school, she would be class president. Among all her CFDA duties, she struck gold with another stunning collection. This time, Jennifer Lopez, Uma Thurman, and Gossip Girls Leighton Meester and Jessica Szohr sat front row. As well, Molly Sims, Rosario Dawson, Sanaa Lathan and, my personal favorite, model Stephanie Seymour (in Alaia!). Whew. And I'm sure they were all dazzled.
This go around was dubbed "Rock Goddess," and Diane described it as "an homage to Diana Vreeland, who taught us we could be goddesses and rock stars." With a big dose of flower child, DVF dresses and separates in India-inspired hues and adornments were my favorites. Some white cotton lace numbers were sweet, while floor-grazing floral gowns were demure. Prints were plentiful and gold sequins sparkled. Her take on silk pants, which I'm seeing everywhere, is wearable and simply pretty. And the headpieces — too fun. So fun, even the models were smiling.
