Pre-Fall 2010 Part 1: Donna Karan & Carolina Herrera - Queens of dresses


Donna Karan

Season after season, Donna Karan delights me with her beautifully draped dresses...For Pre-Fall 2010, these dresses were designed in beautifully lush colours such as brandy, olive, and heath with touches of parrot green and kingfisher blue...I think the strapless gowns are my favourite of this collection:

Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera sure knows how to design a show stopping gown, not shying away from colour: bold hues—lava red, dandelion yellow, and Directoire blue were used for this gorgeous collection, showcasing both wearable pieces, and some red-carpet worthy gowns:

  11. Love the drama of Carolina Herrera, but the Donna Karan gowns are the winners to me for their bold classicness. Plus that draping hides a full tummy!
