Runway to Realway: Victoria Beckham vs. Reiss
Victoria Beckham's S/S '11 signaled a new direction for the designer as she introduced a looser silhouette to her range; only one of the 26 looks presented had a corset, compared to previous collections where they were included in almost every look.
This was my absolute favourite of all of Victoria's collections, and it seems that Reiss agree as they took inspiration from the opening dress presented to create this electric blue 'Pearl' silk dress. It features a similar knotted detail at the waist and loose short-sleeves.
Victoria has worn this dress on at two occassions; once to celebrate her 37th birthday in April at an LA restaurant, and again, in black, to watch former manager and 'American Idol' creator Simon Fuller receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The designer is famously shy of her baby bump so the wrapping of the parachute silk at the front perfectly conceals it. She wore vertiginous nude Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps on both occassions.
