Skin Tight Sexiness, Hervé Léger Goes All The Way
The only way Hervé Léger‘s always tantalizing collection could get any hotter this season is if there were actually people fornicating on the runway- seriously. Designer Max Azria went all the way and tied models up with braided and weaved touches to his skin tight dresses. His always popular bandage style was more S&M than ever with the aforementioned accents.
Celebrities on hand to celebrate the styles included Ashlee Simpson, who was seated between Katie Cassidy and Jessica Szohr, and sitting opposite to them was LeAnn Rimes. I’m sure the men in their lives will be thankful they came to this show. Simpson showed off a severely short new do, while country singer Rimes graciously smiled for photographers.
The tone of the collection overall felt futuristic as models walked the runway to earshot techno beats. I later found the designer was going for the “Golden Age of Americana.” Unless the “Americana” he’s talking about involves scantily clad models reflecting opulence and dominance? I’m not sure he’s on point with that one. Although, with all the headline making scandals, I suppose it could be true. Azria also had an architectural influence, which translated to his color palatte consisting of neutrals and blacks that were complimented by gold and metal accents. Major industrial hardware for some seriously smoking dresses! All of his fringed accents added a touch of playfulness along with sparking sexuality.
On the runway models Daga Ziober, Nimue Smit, Marike Le Roux, and Herieth Paul donned the sultry looks. Their slicked back up-do’s were created by hair stylist Neil Moodie for Bumble & bumble. All of the models had natural makeup looks and shinned on the runway’s lights thanks to makeup artist Lisa Butler from Temptu Pro.
