Michelle Obama, This Is For You: Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011

Oscar de la Renta knows his Park Avenue Ladies. They don't care if there's a Recession, they only fly First Class--or Private--and they go to him for Rich Rich Rich Clothing. Who cares if these ladies are getting well, how shall we say this, older. But then, that is why his press office is working long and hard getting young starlets like "Glee's" Lea Michele to wear his gowns on the red carpet showing "Hey, Oscar de la Renta can do YOUNG too!!", if those young girls have $2,500 to spare for a chic little Daytime sheath dress!

Baby It's Cold: Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011

For Fall 2011, there were lots of luxe fabrics: Jacquard, Furs, Tribal prints, Mongolian references, embellished gowns and cocktail dresses. If it doesn't have sequins or feathers...then it ain't an Oscar de la Renta gown huney!

Proenza Schouler Fall 2011

A Trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico...via New York City...via Proenza Schouler Fall 2011
. Proenza Schouler Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez went Native American for Fall 2011. They took a trip to Santa Fe and were inspired by the local Native American prints, especially in those iconic blankets.

Print Dressing: Proenza Schouler Fall 2011

There was a "Tribal" feeling throughout but modernized. Loose cropped pants, folded, pleated-draped skirts, jackets. Surprised that there weren't any of their signature bustier looks, however. The Colors Palette: Mustard, Brick Red, Deep Wine. Luxurious fabrics like sumptuous velvets, leathers and wools rounded out what seemed to be a Stand-out of a collection for the boys.
