#NYFW Donna Karan Fall 2011

If we could spend our days absorbing Donna Karan's “Pearls of Wisdom” we would drink green juice, do yoga, practice Kabbalah and give a great deal of your time and resources to charity. But since that's not possible, living in her inspiring clothing will have to suffice. For Fall 2011, the iconic designer “embraced a women's femininity with conviction” and empowered her “to express her strength through her softness.” Karan's enlightened aesthetic manifested itself in stunning pearl knit, silver shadow stretch double-face viscose and iridescent silk chiffon, and beautiful blush wool. Looks were both relaxed and utterly refined. A solstice lame-braided evening dress and face powder and pearl embroidered tulle evening dress were particularly stunning. This season, the Donna Karan woman has an unprecedented level of urban sophistication and her sense of style is one of her most powerful assets!
