While this outfit looked nice at Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2016 runway show, Camilla Belle wears it so much better at the CFDA/Vogue’s Fashion Fund runway show and after-(tea) party than the model did on the runway. There were many guests at this event, most of whom were dressed nicely, but nobody could hold a candle to Belle this time around. I have to say though, Kim Kardashian’s look was one of her best in along time. It was an outdoor party which began with a runway show with looks from the 10 competitors (one of whom is Jonathan Simkhai who I am rooting for) who are up for the Fashion Fund prize. The winner of this year’s prize is due to be announced on November 2nd.
Camilla Belle is someone who I know little about. I think the most I know about her is that she dated Joe Jonas soon after Taylor Swift did and then Taylor Swift wrote a song about her as a comeback, but I’m sure she’s done more than that (I just haven’t seen any of her movies). Her actual outfit, a embroidered floral crop top and trumpet skirt, was feminine and pretty without seeming too girly. I think that’s something that is tricky to do as women nowadays don’t want to be thought of as uber-girly and that can cause people to shy away from traditionally girly clothes and patterns like floaty skirts, florals etc. I also think that super-tight bodycon clothes are very much in fashion, as is ruching, so it is nice to see a skirt which has a bit of a flare but is properly fitted. Simply, this look is a breath of fresh air.
This is one of these posts where I begin writing it then realise that I have so little to say. How the hell do people manage to come up with captions for red carpet photos all the time? I cannot intellectualise it. All I want to say is that she looks good, I love the crop top, and that this is one of the few times that a full runway look (minus the shoes) actually looks better than it did on the model – I think her hair and eyebrows make all the difference (I love full eyebrows). Instead of rambling, I’ll leave it at that. She looks amazing, agree or disagree?
