Naeem Khan Fall 2014 NYFW
Just in time for the Oscars, Naeem Khan’s Fall 2014 collection of ready-to-wear evening gowns still has us swooning. Held at the Lincoln Center during NYFW, this celeb-favorite designer [and one of the First Lady’s favs too] sent a bevy of beauties down the boudoir-lit runway. Inspired by all things cabaret, this designer was never short on drama and glitz with gold and white numbers throwing us back to 1970s chicness. We had a chance to bop backstage before the show, chatting with some of the girls and getting first looks of the red carpet-ready gowns. Believe us, they’re even more breathtaking up close.
Movement, movement, movement. Not only are these dresses beautiful beyond words, there’s a gorgeous sense of air and flow about them. They’re sassy, divalicious and downright hot. Especially fringed beaded numbers that shimmy and shake lusciously. A hunter green feathered knockout looks like something a princess of the wilderness would wear…like a modern day sultry Snow White. Animal friends not included. Leopard print is retro fun, not old-fashioned. Blood red is absolutely divine on a lacy number, with flowers resembling festive poinsettias. A black and white gown best fits the showgirl mystique with a flowing skirt that practically floats on its own. Showy with the right amount of taste. Now for the nails, we loved the gold, Julie Kandalec for essie created a luxe, red-carpet ready gold nail by layering good as gold and shifting power.
Throw these girls a standing mic, they’re ready to sing themselves into our hearts. Bob Fosse would approve. A little drama never hurt anyone. fdmLOVES NAEEM KHAN Fall 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
