Ralph does it again! True to his signature style, he creates a fresh and charming collection that is styled to perfection, transports you to a fantastical lifestyle and is always always inspiring. The beauty of this fashion show is that it showcased the current collection that is rolling out online and in stores now. So if you like it, grab it quickly…these pieces are timeless yet perfectly on trend, and will be seasonal favorites.
Young girls ages 3-10 flocked the front row to see 46 looks comprised of the Fall 2012 collection and a preview of Holiday. The feeling was classic tartan, Rock n’ Roll, preppy, funky, and most of all…wonderfully fun. The perfect way to encourage your girls to mix it up and get creative, especially with a surprise walk down the runway from Madmen’s lovely Kiernan Shipka. A few CC faves include a peplum fair isle cardigan, plaid toggle coat with yellow corduroy leggings, jodhpur leggings (which are so divine on young girls), dark olive/brown herringbone tweed princess coat and faux fur trapper hats. Not to mention we loved the wool tweed shorts with tights, leg warmers, striped knee socks and motorcycle boots – one of the many ways to create that relaxed whimsy without being too sweet. And the tartan taffeta tiered (tutu-like) skirt with red military jacket, leopard hi-tops, and feathered top hat was the icing on the cake.

Finally, the models were absolutely gorgeous with perfectly unkept and natural hair. We are especially proud to say that one of these beauties, Helaina Beard is the daughter of our contributing editor Veronica Miele Beard, who also presented her own fashion collection today—so congratulations to our most accomplished chic ladies of the moment!—CC
