Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2010

Who/What/Why:Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2010 RTW debut, the first collection from the genius accessories designer.

Location: Metropolitan Pavillion.

Celebs spotted: Michelle Trachtenberg, Lauren "LC" Conrad, and a rumored Gerard Butler-- who's lucky that I didn't spot him. I was able to remain collective though major celeb sightings all week, but he would've caused me to lose my cool. SWOON.

The Collection: Leather, studs, and leopard -- oh my--mixed with sweetheart necklines and florals. The color palette was mostly black and white (and safe), with few pops of color. Very short skirts and Balmain-ish shoulders. According to the show's program, the designer inspired by Peter Lindbergh's photographs, and Tim Burton (hmm...).

Hair: Couldn't find info, but as you can see, hair was pretty much a free for all. some up, some down, mostly with a messy, "did it myself" look.

Makeup:Jose Rivera/Sephora [Ultramatte with brownish taupe eyes and a strong brow-- Nude shadow all over the lids, layering with darker taupe and brownish shades to contour. Cheeks were peachy, and lips were coated with a pinky brown, with translucent powder on top to block out shine. Brows were swept upward and filled in with brow pencil, in “hairlike” strokes for a full, structured look.]

The Takeaway: Minkoff's collection had a rocker vibe that some considered less edgy and more lady of the evening. It was a little bit cheap, a little bit genius, and totally safe. I'm looking forward to next season, to see if she can up the ante.
