Floral fashion is what you could call a perennial favorite. But this year’s garden variety offers the pattern with a modern twist: Think more graphic prints, origami folds and blocked panels. Still, each dress radiates pure femininity (just take a look at Zac Posen’s spring runway, which was packed with flowing floral-stamped chiffon).
You might say it was friendship at first sight for Corri McFadden and Jaslene Gonzalez. McFadden, owner and founder of luxury consignment store eDrop-Off, and Gonzalez, winner of 2007’s “America’s Next Top Model,” met during a Splash photo shoot in February, when Gonzalez modeled some of eDrop-Off’s looks for a feature on spring trends. “The way she moved was flawless,” says McFadden. “Nothing was forced. She gave me chills.”
Start spring with a clean slate and don a lovely little white dress. A combo of flirty and fancy, the perfect LWD is just as important as the classic black cocktail ensemble. If your closet is lacking, look no further than Vera Wang’s spring collection, packed full of ivory shifts, dancing skirts and embroidered jackets.
A classic springtime color, green has bloomed again on the Chicago party scene. From enchanting emeralds to luminous limes, there’s no shade that’s off-limits. The greener the garb, the more yellow tones it brings out in the skin, causing a lit-from-within glow.
