Rebecca Minkoff presented her Spring/Summer ’11 presentation yesterday afternoon at The Box at Lincoln Center. Maybe there was something bad in the food backstage (or there wasn’t any) or the lights had gotten hotter since Timo’s presentation a few hours earlier. For whatever reason, Minkoff’s models we’re dropping like flies half way through the hour-long presentation. Every few minutes, a model would step down from the platform and go backstage and sometimes be replaced by another model. They were all sweating and looked absolutely exhausted and miserable. A woman spent the entire presentation handing thirsty-looking girls cups of Fiji water.
The most miserable-looking of all? Style blogger-of-the-moment Rumi Neely, who looked like she would have rather been blogging about the show than modeling in it. However, she happened to be wearing my favorite outfit: a long, flowy nude dress with a black waistband and these amazing black shoes that were like a clog-ankle boot combo. The clothes, wearable and ’70s-inspired, were pretty, but the bags and shoes were definitely the most covetable. Click through for our faves.
