“The show is about glamour, elegance, and craft,” Zac Posen said right before he presented his spring 2013 collection in New York City.
Posen’s inspirations this season were American swans of yesteryear—C. Z. Guest, Grace Kelly, Brenda Frazier. Meanwhile, the swans, if that’s the proper word, of today were occupying his front row: Alexa Chung, Margherita Maccapani Missoni, Lily Kwong.
Posen’s theory is that these women are getting ever more dressed up for events, so he’s taken it upon himself to keep them in entry-making looks. For spring, you’ll see a corseted tulle “futuristic Degas” cocktail dress, a jade-hued satin-bodiced tulle ball dress, and a floral showstopper with a chiffon-over-organza-over-taffeta skirt. And Coco Rocha appeared last in the show wearing a tiered white ball dress.
Of course, these dresses aren’t practical. We love e’m because they exemplify Divabetic’s ‘GLAM MORE, FEAR LESS’ philosophy. Why not dress up and show off how fabulous you can be?
We can’t understand why people ask “why are YOU so dressed up?” As if wearing something cute that makes you feel good is a “strange” thing to do!
Dressing unconventionally forces you to develop the self-assurance necessary to stand out from everyone else like a diva. Fashion is one of the rare instances where art comes alive. What artistic statement do you want to make?
If you’ve got it (great style, killer confidence, amazing legs), it’s just wrong not to flaunt it. Don’t get down, Get DIVA!
