HOLLYWOOD—Celebrities like Miranda Kerr, love to sizzle in tropical fiesta attire just in time for Cinco de Mayo, which by the way is often referred to as a “Mexican St. Patrick’s Day.” The spring/summer 2013 Dolce & Gabbana has lots of bright and bold colors inspired by Dolce’s Sicilian roots. This season we are seeing a lot of Asian themes from Prada for spring. From the Far Eastcomes kimonos and obi wraps, sharp geometric shapes and psychedelic chopine sandals along with the gladiators. They are perfectly paired with a super-short dress. Many designers are keeping the same classic sandal however Versace high-heeled gladiators are by far the sexiest and most flattering. There is always a certain flair and romance that comes with the bohemian, the carefree jet-setter, the hippie. It’s the evolution of the boho.
We are seeing a lot of yellow fever, the sunny side up color of yellow, which is always an eye-opener and a favorite of Gayle King. The mint color is popping up for spring/summer which looks radiant with a light pink color mixed in. If you want to feel sexy, there is nothing like a Jason Wu. Or an Emilio Pucci dress that has sheer silk and silk chiffon embroidered, if you have to ask the price, it means you can’t afford it. If you are feeling totally sexy and daring there is nothing like a Victoria Beckham dress.
Pinafore dresses are embracing their innocence and sweetness in retro prints along with the flora; appliqués which give the 3-dimensional garden to your outfit of the day. The runways really played it up with luxurious appliqués and intricate beading. This season we have the orange color trend, which is vibrant, optimistic and bold. The color of orange is fresh and just the citrusy hues lift up your spirits.
