Miuccia Prada showed one of her very best Miu Miu collections for fall winter 2012 in Paris on Wednesday, filled with strong suits in bright color combos -- very Carnaby Street - and mini dresses festooned with giant matte rock crystals. Even the eyemakeup had a strong sixties/seventies element. Just remember you heard it here first: the dress over pants look is baaccckkkkkk . . .
It's not everyday a brand gets a strong row that's got Mia Wasikowska -- an avowed fan of the brand, who wears it often -- Katy Perry, Midnight in Paris star Lea Seydoux, Kate Mara, Brit Marling, British singer Corinne Bailey Rae, and a number of young French stars. It's the best celeb turn out in Paris so far, so the Wednesday night opening of the Marc Jacobs-Louis Vuitton museum show at Les Art Decoratif in Paris will certainly be a hot ticket tonight.
Wasikowska wore a bicolor dress with a Miu Miu orchid pink top and a black flared skirt, with nude patent pumps; Seydoux wore a Prada (sister brand) black lace dress, a clutch and two town leather wedges with flames; Perry wore a blue coat and a flame print chiffon dress by Prada -- plus the bag of the season, the Saffiano lux Pyramide with studs - and Mara wore a red nappa leather trench and red silk shorts by Miu Miu. Quite a nice showing for all -- but particularly, for the brand.
