Perched in the front row of Narciso Rodriguez's Spring 2010 show was Jessica Alba, decked out in the designer (of course), Mary Alice Stephenson, Emmy Rossum and Tory Burch. Such feminine stars for a collection that proved that a little masculinity thrown into the mix can be quite sexy. Let's be honest, it's not like Jessica Alba really needs any help with that...
The collection was a delicate interpretation of Spring 2010, kind of an exhale after the more elaborate, embellished, stretched, and sheer collections we've been seeing. As always, Rodriguez sticks to elegance and sophistication in his silhouettes. He struck a high note with airy gowns featuring cascading hemlines (longer in the back and swooped up in the front) during the closing looks of the show.
The collection was not all light and easy, we should add. There were rather androgynous looking jumpsuits, prints that recalled some kind of internal body scan and pops of aggressive red and amethyst. But what fans of Rodriguez understand and what likely makes him a favorite amongst one Ms. Obama is that in these moments, the details never outshine the woman.
