The show. It was an exciting, over-the-top, celebration that kicked off with a series of classic Lanvin shapes–peplum-hipped dresses and form-fitting numbers with high collars and low backs done in neoprene so they held their signature Lanvin ruffles–in bold jewel tones. From jewel-tones, actual jewels worked their way into the collection. After a series of black looks that played with structure and volume (work that short flared skirt, Karlie), gem stones, big ones, sparkly ones, were arranged boldly over the front of dresses. Then came the furs, the ruffles, the peplums, the silk prints, all of it more-is-more and more worked. The A-list model line-up played up their looks, with Aymeline Valade “werking” her ruffles and elbow length red gloves like models used to in the ’70s and ’80s. The last looks elicited shrieks and claps and whistles from the crowd.
