A Model Fainted at Lorena Sarbu’s Presentation: MB Fashion Week Fall 2012
Lorena Sarbu’s red carpet looks might have been a little overwhelming.
Bright and early on February 12, 2012, Lorena Sarbu’s Fall 2012 red carpet collection debuted during Mercedes-Benz Fall 2012 Fashion Week. Upon entering the room inside Lincoln Center, complimentary mimosas were served up all around as people wandered the room, viewing a presentation of the latest collection of cocktail dresses in bold jewel tones like emerald and cobalt.
Dresses were encrusted with embellishments like jewels, ostrich feathers and organza flowers. What really popped beyond the extras were necklines and sleeves–or the lack thereof. There was something for every fashionista, from the daring (plunging v-necks) to the sexy (one shoulder, strapless corsets) to the understated (boat neck). The biggest star of the show? A cobalt blue one shoulder geometric embroidered and jet beaded cocktail dress. It moved like liquid and reminded me of a shimmery blue mermaid.
The poor model on the left is the one who fainted–Remember to eat!
It was all gorgeous and rich that I couldn’t help but sigh with happiness just a little bit. My couture swoon must have had a sudden domino effect because during the show, a model fainted! Luckily, she was safely taken care of. We can’t lose the models, they’re far too fabulous!
