Lauren Conrad made her New York Fashion Week debut, with a runway collection that screamed ‘Pin me.’
From the moment you stepped into the space, it was like you were looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. From the pink champagne in your glass to the blush-toned roses hidden among the bustling crowd to the mood lighting, it was everything you expected from the self-proclaimed “basic.”
However, is Pinterest bait really such a bad thing.
If there is one thing you can not say about Conrad’s first runway collection is that it wasn’t pretty. It was a modern fairytale come to life, but instead of matching their tulle skirts with glass slippers, the models rocked leather jackets. Models were also styled with pinnable crown braids and loose ponytails, and delicate floral prints dominated. There was even a ‘Jolene’ remix playing in the background as the models hit the runway.
That doesn’t mean Conrad didn’t break any style rules. The ‘no white after Labor Day’ memo clearly didn’t get to a white-clad Conrad, whose best pieces were head-to-toe white, including a sheer white cover-up with peplum waist.
There were some missteps, but overall Conrad delivered what was expected (including a tulle ball gown to close the show). But hey, for a collection you can shop at Kohl’s we can’t complain.
