The Clothes: This season, Nanette Lepore disproved the adage “It isn’t easy being green.” Not only is it easy being green, but it’s pretty darn cool, and everybody better get on board! Lepore offered her usual joyful, ultrafeminine fare this season in a palette heavy on pistachio and coral hues with some crisp, clean whites and a little turquoise thrown in for good measure. She imagined a series of swingy little frocks in floral silhouette prints. The clothes gave off a girly yet sporty vibe with black piping, peekaboo cutouts, and a smattering of the brand’s signature beachy knits. Lepore also gave us a few mismatched suit elements that (naturally) seemed to come seamlessly together on the runway. All in all, the collection was a little less animated than what you’d expect from Lepore, but a girl could get used to this cool-as-a-cucumber vibe she’s serving.

Celebrity We’d Most Like to See Wearing this Collection: I’m dying to see Michelle Obama in the first look, an updated ’50s-style gingham frock modeled by Sessilee Lopez.
WTF Moment: The band ended with a song whose lyrics went, “Pussy, pussy, pussy, marijuana.” Okay. I guess both those things are sorta cool?
