Carolina Herrera has always been extremely consistent in her classic designs. However, similar to her range of followers (Catherine Zeta-Jones & Lady Gaga being the two on either side of the spectrum) her collection for Fall 2012 held quite the array of style, cut, and color. The progression of the clothing in the show was perfect; starting out with navy and black separates, and slowly moving towards the beautiful style-studded, ballroom gowns. Necklines ranged everywhere from modest boat-necks to plunging. Whether the colors were neutrals or not, she did a fantastic job of making them pop against other colors and patterns.
It seems that in her fall ’12 collection there was something for everyone. With the classy, slim-fit dresses, intricate beading, the more casual separates in dark colors and overcoats. And let's not forget the vivacious bright red gown that will be forever ingrained in our minds! Yes, there were pieces here and there with designer Joe Duke’s pop collage prints on them, however the pencil skirts, simple sleeves and modest hemlines kept the chaos of the prints in check.
The models wore very little makeup, Cinderella-style hair, and no jewelry; the simplicity of it all was just extremely endearing.
