Calvin Klein Loves Lara Stone, Uma Thurman & Nude Hues
Lara Stone didn’t walk the runway at Calvin Klein. SHE WORKED IT! Instead of being in today’s Calvin Klein Collection show, Stone confirmed her bonafide supermodel status as she was seated front row. Stone is the current face of the brand and they’re honoring the beauty by dedicating the week to her with the perfectly titled “We Love Lara” campaign. If you caught any of the the show’s livestream, you may have noticed you had the option choose between runway view and Lara view. Luckily, we were able to have both views for the inside scoop on this must-see show.
The model lit up the room in an orange bodycon dress making paparazzi lose their minds, but she was the only woman they had their eyes on. Mega actresses Uma Thurman, Naomi Watts, Chloe Moretz, and Ashley Greene were also front row in graceful minimalistic Calvin Klein dresses. Opposite the celebrities were power editors Anna Wintour, Hamish Bowles, and Grace Coddington. If that wasn’t enough, we also saw Bryan Boy seated behind Joe Zee, Brad Goreski chatting it up with Nina Garcia, and of course Rachel Zoe in attendance.
With a seated Lara everyone was wondering who was going to be opening the show. It was none other than the fresh faced Josefien Rodermans in a nude slip dress. Following her, models came out in an onslaught of nude pieces that echoed sexy lingerie. Strategically pleated skirts and collarless jackets complimented by t strap stilettos were seen throughout the show. It appears a trend creative director Francisco Costa is aiming to return are deep v necklines. Overall his minimalistic pieces all had a sprinkling of sexuality to them. Many of the looks easily translate from the office to the bedroom, yet in true CK form, they remain completely classy while doing so. Although, there are a few that clearly scream subtle seductress.
The CK minimalism followed suit all the way up to the hair and makeup looks donned by each model. Beauty artistry dream team, makeup artist Pat McGrath and hair stylist Guido Palau, were responsible for each model’s delicate appearance. And who were these stunning young beauties? Along with Rodermans, we spotted Nimue Smit, Emily Baker, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Julia Nobis on the runway.
