Carolina Herrera F/W 08-09

Oh Carolina. *sigh* I don't even know where to begin. Save these two looks, the rest of the collection. . .I need to regroup. Great fall palette. Lots of warm, dark, and rich colors. But the silhouette left much to be desired. When I saw some of the looks, in particular the hats, I couldn't help think of that picture of Pocohontas after she became anglo-saxonized. Am I the only one who sees the resemblance? Anyone? (crickets chirping)
This dress below is pretty fabulous. The fringe, the details, the flowy sleeves, Liya Kebede... What's not to love about this look? This dress would sell like hotcakes if it came in more colors ie a taupe or heather grey or bordeaux burgundy. (Caroline, we know you're fabulous, but not everyone can pull off that mustard look, dahling.) And the fact that the dress looks great with elf-like boots and a feather-spiked fedora proves that it would look even better with stilettos and a clutch.

Overall, the collection is definitely a look...But I'm not sure how this will translate into something wearable for the masses. Maybe the colors, capes, and boots will be "edited" to fit the real woman. We shall see. Still, interesting tones and great dresses (per usual).
