Last fall, I was certain that my whole wardrobe would be filled with only leather and lace come Summer 2011. I am still hopelessly stuck on leather, but I’ve been drawn to sheer fabrics and chiffon for the season: essential when going out in this sweltering NYC heat.
Genevieve Jones mixed sheer chiffon and leather when she wore a look from Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection (as seen on Caroline Brasch Nielsen) at the Invisible Beauty event sponsored by LVMH in New York City this week. This is a bold choice amidst the country’s heatwave, but it suits her perfectly. It is the epitome of ladylike. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a look from the collection back in May.
Valentino’s Dotted Bead Collar Blouse retails for $1090. Visit www.neimanmarcus.com to purchase. See Genevieve Jones’ look on the runway below and also see her wearing lace again at yesterday’s MAC Cosmetics and Gareth Pugh Collaboration Cocktail Party at The New Museum Sky Room in New York City.
