Lela Rose Spring 2012 Collection

The Lela Rose Spring 2012 Collection was filled with flowy and relaxed structured dresses; no doubt we will be seeing some of these dresses on the red carpet during awards show season. What actress wouldn’t want to emit femininity and strength on the red carpet. Ironically, Rose’s inspiration “centered around the neon graveyard…..the unrestored and broken signs that dot the landscape of Las Vegas and the amusement park vibe of Coney Island”. It’s interesting that these soft beautiful looks were inspired by things that are now weathered and worn.

The Nude Tulle with Ivory Polka Dot Shirred Dress (above) made the model look ethereal. I loved the dress not only because it was exquisite, but also because of its ballerina silhouette which made it uber feminine and understatedly sexy. The Optic Silk Bustier with Night Lights Organze Tiered Ball skirt (above) seemed to float down the runway because of the layering of each ruffle. The bustier was modern and contemporary while the chiffon printed polka dot skirt looked almost angelic.

The Ivory Bulb Dotted Blocked Cardigan and the Nude Tulle with Ivory Dot Full Skirt add a 1960’s collegian vibe, while the Night Lights Organza Seamed Bustier Dress was stunning with its 1950’s silhouette.

After several divine dresses came down the runway, Rose add a few key pieces that could be mixed and matched with the dresses. The Burlap Double Face Zip Front Jacket with citron lining could go with any jeans or evening pants, but paring it with the Optic Silk Bralette and Multi-colored Washed Out Floral Full skirt added richness and a bold appeal to the look. The Stripped Paint Zip Front Dress with Piping Detail had just the right splashed of paint on it to give it somewhat of an 80’s vibe, while remaining modern. That best thing about the dress was that it can fit any style personality – add bright yellow stilettos or soft gray wedges to play up the colors.

When the Periwinkle Faded Embossed Organza Drop Waist Dress came down the runway it was mesmerizing, not only because of the colour but because of the printed ombre effect. The capped sleeves, v-neckline and pinned pleats added character to this chic dress. I also love the personality of the Black and Ivory Chipped Embroidered Dress, a classic sheath pumped up with the geometric graphic print reminiscent of the burned out and broken bulbs.

Enjoy the beautiful show’s finale below
