New York Fashion Week Diaries: My Favorite Looks From Reem Acra

I’m someone who loves a little glamour. Even though my daily wardrobe is jeans and t-shirts, I have an opposite side of the closet filled with things that sparkle. I love glitter and feminine silhouettes. As Linda Evangelista once said, “I love glamour. I’m not afraid of it.” Which is exactly why I was so excited to get an invitation to view the Reem Acra collection for Spring/Summer 2015.

This legendary designer understands the need for a moment that takes someone’s breath away when it comes to designing a wardrobe. The collection was inspired by the draping and designs of mid-century couturiers from France, and it’s really evident the designer spends a considerable amount of time in Paris: the collection was filled with beautiful florals, nods to French wines, glittering lights, the draping of glamorous fabrics. I love how she always shows a flash of skin to entice the viewer, and this season she went there with some gowns that are unabashedly sexy. Some sheaths and cocktail dresses are much less daring, but if you’re going to throw some sex appeal down, she’s definitely got the gown for it.

Below are my favorite gowns from the 38 looks shown in the collection. Which one is your favorite?
