Bell Bottoms, Sequins, Florals… it was a cool Friday afternoon in Lincoln Center when Rebecca Taylor transported her audience to an era of carefree glamour for her Fall 2011 Runway Show. As I sat from my 4th row seat and watched the models put on a dazzling 1970s parade, I took a mental snap shot of each the prominent trends. Heavy emerald necklaces took center stage, along with floral and very sheer pants, and coats that made a statement in eye-catching colors or luxurious texture.

In keeping with the collection’s throwback feel, the designer recycled pieces from season’s past giving it an authentic patchwork aesthetic, which came together like a beautiful collage.

Bright flashes of gold and beading made the collection come to life. What was also great is that these pieces could be worn to work (the heavy structured jackets with fur trim) at work (the fun pants in unexpected colors) and after work (the attention stealing floaty dresses).

For beauty the Rebecca Taylor girl donned slicked back hair that was crimped at the ends, dark velvety red lips, and a heavy blush contour on an otherwise clean face. I was definitely into it from the fourth row.

Notable guest included actress Michelle Tractenberg, actress/model Garcelle Beauvais, model Maggie Rizer, and Mark Indelicato who were all swarmed by photographers. Here are a few of my favorite pieces although these pictures could never do the collection justice.
