NYFW : Victoria Beckham Fall 2010

My style heroine (like Mr Joe Zee mentioned on his twitter), Victoria Beckham showed her newest Fall collection with a total of 26 dresses in an Upper East Side town house with about 40 editors (including Grace Coddington from Vogue US) and a couple of stylists from Gossip Girl on Valentines' Day. Unlike many designers, Victoria narrated as the models came out from backstage.

Editors were full of praise and celebrity-stylist Rachel Zoe was also happy with a few of the looks despite arriving late for the presentation. (Would love to see her clients in VB.)

RZ : “That was heaaaaven,” gushed Ms. Zoe. “So beautiful! So well tailored!”

The dresses are so classy and elegant. The turquoise dresses are absolutely gorgeous, amazing color. I love the long emerald blue dress, would totally wear it!

I'm absolutely in LOVE with the cream dresses (beside blood reds). Victoria also mentioned that she'll be wearing of of the nude dresses to the Oscars (I suppose the bottom, far right.)

And the little black dresses with simple details. Who doesn't love them?
If you're a girl's girl you'll definitely covet them like I do, afterall its Victoria Beckham.

Dick Tracy's comic strips and Martha Graham were her main inspiration for the collection. She also pushed herself to work with the draping and structure.

And from ELLEUK's twitter, we learn that Brian Atwood designed those pumps for her collection, the make up on the models were done by Lancome. Those sunglasses are probably from her new collection of sunglasses too.

Since Victoria Beckham is still starting and building her own brand name, I'll be looking forward to her opening her own store in 5 years liked she said in her presentation as well as (probably) moving onto dresses with a different silhouette. I also look forward to seeing Victoria herself wearing those dresses strutting through JFK/LAX/Heathrow Airports andon Gossip Girl!

Fashion Tweets

@mrjoezee Victoria Beckham says collection is influenced by Dick Tracy, comic colors & someone who's affected her own personal style, Martha Graham.

@mrjoezee Gorgeous nude draped gown at VB with grosgrain shoulder detail is what Victoria says she'll wear to the Oscars. Major!

@NETAPORTER VB Collection was v beautiful. She has the best legs EVER. Her trick is running.

@mrjoezee http://twitpic.com/138fe0 - Brian Atwood did all the majorly tall platforms. These were on Ms. B's feet. Love!

@mrjoezee http://twitpic.com/138fsi - This is what VB calls masculine and that is why I love her.

@cutblog Victoria Beckham's collection is pretty, very 40s Hollywood. Even better, she narrated! Adorable.

@edojao Victoria Beckham gets Better with each collection. I think each piece is sellable, wearable, and versatile.

@derekblasberg Victoria Beckham just called her personal style this season as 'Dick Tracey's nerd chic'. She's being really adorable.

Style.com's Review by Nicole Phelps :
Victoria Beckham started her presentation by personally greeting each and every one of the 25 or so editors and retailers assembled in the Upper East Side town house to see it. Most designers, of course, prefer to hide out backstage. "When does that ever happen?" someone asked after shaking hands with her. As has become Beckham's style over the last three seasons, she narrated as the models glided out in her dresses, discussing fabrics, color, cut, and construction. She sounded like such a pro, you almost forgot that she was once a pop superstar, until, pointing out a buff-colored draped silk jersey gown with a grosgrain ribbon sashed around the asymmetrical bodice, she told us, "I'm going to wear this one to the Oscars." A cloudlike gazar confection with couturelike hand-tucking and a blurred pixel print lifted from the Dick Tracy comic came with another anecdote, this one about what a nightmare it was to put together.

Well, all the hard work paid off; there wasn't one bad dress in the bunch. The best of her signature hourglass sheaths came in a brilliant emerald stretch felt for day, and for evening in an antique gold metallic jacquard with an asymmetric neckline. Where she pushed herself was with draping and looser-fitting shape—relatively speaking, of course. A strapless sapphire double crepe column gown with a tuck at the bust and a draped back was as Martha Graham as things got. More often Beckham married the fluid with the structured, as she did with one fabulous dress that was nude silk jersey on top and densely ribbed nude jersey below the waist. The most exciting development, though, was a wool crepe long-sleeve tunic dress. Cut on the bias so that it felt like wearing an oversize sweater—or so Beckham described it—the frock had an everyday kind of sexiness that will win her a whole new class of fans.
