The Most Important Skirt Of The Spring Season

This skirt seemed to be the first piece all the editors were snapping up when it hit the Prada salesfloor in Milan and Paris.
I love how Anna Della Russo has worn long, dark jewel-toned green gloves to compliment the color of the skirt.

It's an attractive skirt on an attractive woman, but I can't say that I am crazy about it.

those sort of really high waisted belted skirts were always balanced by length and/or volume in the 40s. without either it just looks awkward.

I think this piece works best in theory...

common guys this skirt and the whole concept is fresh and sexy while maintaining that everpradha elegance. Love it.

The eye has to adjust to the new proportion. I think this volume will take a while for the mainstream to adopt. Kudos to bold early adopters like Ms. Della Russo!

Every time I see pictures of her I love her outfits, but in my opinion she dresses too young for her age. It always looks a bit 'off' to me because of that. Agree? Disagree?

She looks lovely and alive. She pulls it off very well.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:00 PM) : 

TOTALLY agree.

 

Anonymous artbi*ch said ... (7:23 PM) : 

i think this skirt should fit in a more femenin-way..

it seems like a robot

has the look of a dip into a child's dress-up box...she looks like she's a havin' fun

 

Blogger Gudl said ... (7:46 PM) : 

I personally think Anna looks better in a longer skirt.

 

Blogger NYC Modelista said ... (7:51 PM) : 

Is it practical? I mean, the skirt is really, really short. On the runway, the models' knickers were visible.

I liked the shape and pleat in the front but I expected a longer hemline when it hits the stores. Usually a runway look is edited to make it more wearable.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 PM) : 

Pretty skirt, but maybe too short. She probably had to stand very straight at all times.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:20 AM) : 

What I love about this woman is that she challenges the question of "age appropriate" dress. The key is that she's not showing any skin, and whether or not you like the skirt, she wears it with the confidence to shame a woman half her age.

 

Blogger sandman_gr said ... (4:10 AM) : 

Looks good on her but it is only for tall skinny legged ladies...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 AM) : 

Nice... like Mickey Mouse.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:07 AM) : 

She looks like a more refined Sandra Bernhardt. Nice look. Great fashion!

 

Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I agree that on its own, this skirt is limited to those with fabulous long legs. However, then Vogue did an editorial and paired it with an oversized shirt so that the skirt was more like a (rather large) belt. I thought that was a great way of translating a beautiful mini, mini, boldly coloured skirt (which yes, is everywhere) to every day.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:40 PM) : 

Karl Lagerfeld also did this skirt look for Fendi S/S 07 in bright fuschia!

 

Blogger Jenny said ... (5:18 PM) : 

I love this skirt too, but like it better in purple satin, a la Carine Roitfeld. I've seen a picture of her wearing it with a coat, which in my opinion works better overall. But this version definitely plays on proportion more with the sleeves. Call me old school, but I like Carine's version better.

That tulip on a mirror silhouette in the last shot, with those gloves and shoes.....WORKS

 

Anonymous alamodedujour said ... (2:13 AM) : 

I'm so IMPRESSED how this woman has style! Le creme de la creme!! Seeing a woman that really enjoys clothes like her and how she puts it all together is really wonderful! Please put more pics of her on your blog..she's amazing!! I love her boldness and she's not shy to enjoy great designs.
