The impossibly flowy chiffons and beaded lace hotpants (our fave, hands down) had to appeal to the various starlets present, including Mandy Moore, who was actually gawking at points during the show. Not to mention that every single item was covered in sequins.
The collection was inspired by the Rolling Stones tune “She’s the Rainbow,” and it was indeed a rainbow of soft pastels. While chiffon can sometimes read “innocent”, Packham took risks with details–think thigh-high slits and sparkling lace booty-shorts–for a bit of sex appeal. The mix of separates, short dresses, and gowns ensures that
Kate her fans will have lots of choices, no matter what the occasion.
With each model’s Louboutin-clad stomp as they billowed down the runway, I became a bigger fan of Packham. And it’s certainly good enough for a princess.
