Kate Middleton wears Prabal Gurung on first day of Asia Royal Tour

Oh, this old thing?

The Duchess donned the beautiful colors of Prabal Gurung s 2012, a New York designer by way of Nepal, on her first day of the Asia Royal Tour in Singapore. This is a very modest version of the knockout looks Gurung showed during fashion week and in later ads with Candice Swanepoel.  Prabal is a pretty penny and a departure from her off-the-rack style.  I’m not one to nit, but isn’t she technically wearing last season?  Maybe that’s her way of not looking too much a slave to fashion.

To further flatter these colors, I would love to see her darken her hair for fall.  Overall, it doesn’t matter, it’s refreshing to see her in this designer and I hope we get more to come. Where the digital pattern hits and cut are flattering to her figure.

Any guesses on who else she might wear?  I’m hoping an appearance of Zang Toi is in the rounds.

Christian Siriano: Sugar and Spice and everything nice at s 2013 Fashion Week

I never understand when I see the name “Christian Siriano” preceded by “Project Runway” headlining.  Virtually out of the gate, Siriano came into his own as a designer and presented the world with stunning eye candy and the closest confection to bridal wear that walked the runways at Fashion Week.  Maybe Project Runway is afraid of the world forgetting they discovered this gift.

For s 2013, Siriano doesn’t step out of his box so much as change the wrapping a bit.  Fanciful ball gowns give way to a trio of tea lengths, peplum replaces plumage, and shouldered cutouts that appear to be customized for FLOTUS floated down the runway this time.  Siriano claims his inspiration was the ballet, but this version is one all women can dance.  He continues the trademark romantic layerings and small details that give this 1940ish collection sighability.

Of course, the Siriano Shoe Collection at Payless is a show stopper every season, and Siriano debuts metallics, multiple bows and flats.  There is usually  bit of a gap between the runway vs production shoe, so we’ll see what actually represents in stores.  However, spring is looking good.
