Anna Sui: Mix Master

This was my first Anna Sui show. And it went pretty much as I had hoped. This is what I saw: Photographers going crazy over Taylor Momsen (we really want to know who her publicist is). Peaches Geldof, on the other hand, sitting completely unnoticed (much to her dismay, we're sure) and beside Hilary Alexander (much to her to dismay, we're sure). Coco Rocha trumped them all by having a camera crew of her own; we seriously can't wait for her E! Canada segments to air. Agyness opened the show, her first Fashion Week appearance so far, wearing a feathered hat with her usual quirky aplomb. There were more feathered caps to come - almost every look was topped with a feather-adorned beanie. The first looks were all black and white, and we were beginning to think we'd be seeing a completely monochromatic show until a turquoise paisley dress popped up, after that, saffrons, navys and dark chocolates were mixed in. At first, we were convinced the show would be military-inspired. And then we thought it referenced Russian peasantry. And then, after seeing the paisley dresses and the brown leather fringed purses, we were definitely feeling the '70s. Finally, we decided it was a little bit of everything and in true Anna Sui style, it totally worked. --HAYLEY PHELAN
