Phillip Lim: Guaranteed Hit

The great thing about a Phillip Lim show is that you know you'll love whatever comes down the runway. It might not be revolutionary, but it's cute, comfortable, flattering, easy to wear and pretty, which is probably why Leighton Meester sat front row bobbing her head to the music, laughing with Hamish and waving to Alexa Chung across the aisle - Lim has that effect. Along with, at least yesterday, a "Woah, what's going on" effect when he sent out five dresses that might as well have had Rodarte labels sewn into the neck. A quick scan of the front row's eyeballs made it clear how blatant the 'inspiration' was. But other than that there were sequins and sequins and more sequins, an adorable red patent trench and, I'm sorry to say, a handful of crop tops. No pants I can do, but crop tops will never happen (for me I mean). The gold sequin romper Hanne wore toward the end though? That will most definitely happen.
