Prabal Gurung’s Violet Dagger & Seductive Reality

Sep 10, 2011 By Amy

Having followed Prabal Gurung‘s career for a few years now, the designer continues to appeal to all types of women and his popularity is getting to be as big as Nicki Minaj’s hair – literally. The singer paraded into Gurung’s NYFW show today with paparazzi swarming around her. Trailing behind and making a much more delicate entrance was actress Amanda Seyfried, who was seated close to Minaj. It takes imagination and a unique comprehension of a woman’s body to appeal to both of these celebrities, which Gurung has, not to mention the designer has dressed everyone from Michelle Obama to Zoe Saldana.

Anna Wintour was vacant from this showing, yet the Vogue presence remained a powerhouse with Andre Leon Talley, Grace Coddington, and Hamish Bowles front row. Elle’s creative director Joe Zee sat with the mag’s editor-in-chief Robbie Myers, while we also spotted Brad Goreski, Bryan Boy, Steven Kolb, Derek Blasberg, Mickey Boardman, and Imran Amed in the audience.

The designer’s pre-show tweets gave us a preview of the looks, so we knew to anticipate shades of violet. Of course in true Gurung fashion, always expect the unexpected as fierce sheer cutout pieces came down the catwalk. Metallics yelled at the audience and reflected the wearer’s dominance over the crowd. The designer’s collection transformed from flirty into a dagger of seductive reality before coming full circle with immaculately detailed tulle accented silk gowns. The garments encompassed the empowering effect of romance, whether that be with another person or your wardrobe.

On the runway coveted model Karlie Kloss wowed in a sheer cutout black gown which was sex and drama in clothing form. Kloss even gave a slight smirk down the runway before greeting photog flashes. Also walking for Gurung we spotted Lindsey Wixson, Arizona Muse, Liu Wen, Jourdan Dunn, Nimue Smit, and Sui He. Each model had noticeably slicked back locks and bold lipstick, while their face makeup remained natural with a light sheen thanks to makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

Showgoers knew they were witnessing something amazing. As you can tell by the finale music in the video above the occasion felt momentous; Boardman even tweeted that he cried. If there’s something we’ve learned from his shows throughout the years, it’s that Prabal Gurung is a designer who has a way of taking pieces women would normally fear and morph their fright into desire. As you can see by his mixed clientele, he’s good at having his way with the ladies and he can totally have his way with me any day.
