I'm pleased to say that Charlotte Ronson has found a happy balance between a sexy and tough but feminine look and a grunge look. She certainly stuck to her goal: "Feminine, but not too feminine."
Charlotte Ronson Fall 2011
I can honestly say that this collection was unlike anything I've ever seen before. Other collections have a certain style that it grasps: sexy, boho-chic, feminine, grunge. But Jill Stuart took one style to a new level: animals.
Ok, ok, so maybe I was a little over-dramatic. Her entire collection wasn't based on animals. But I didn't have least favorites, which was good.
I have just one problem with this collection. In order to capture the spirit of animals, Jill Stuart has used fur on her designs. The only question is, is the fur faux or not? If it is real fur, than I will go from loving this collection to hating it, being the animal lover that I am. It would also be pretty hypocritical to portray the animals so beautifully on one model and then have her next model walk out in the dead, slaughtered skins of these very beings.
