It’s been said that Kate Moss inspires trends with her daring and outside of the box thinking about fashion. The model, who has served as a muse for so many designers for over a decade, wore a stunning metallic one shoulder mini dress designed by Marc Jacobs himself to the Model as Muse theme Met Gala this year. Style.com touts the model for serving as a muse to designers’ resort 2010 collections, which I think is a huge stretch.
C’mon now people. The resort collections for most designers were probably already sketched and in the process of being put together before the Met Gala so there is no way that Kate’s dress would have inspired resort collections. Second, I think Marc Jacobs probably showed her this dress (left) from his resort 2010 collection before it was shown to the public to garner more interest in his line and get more publicity after his resort 2010 was released (giving him more publicity now).
I agree with Style.com on most issues and also that Kate Moss has inspired trends but not this time around. One shoulder dresses are one of the on-going trends for the past two or so seasons, which designers are capitalizing on.
Anyhow, the Marc included the Kate Moss one shoulder number in his resort collection for 2010. The dress is fabulous and worth the splurge but who in their right minds, especially celebs, would dare to rock a frock Kate Moss has worn to a high profile event?
So instead of writing about how Kate Moss’s dress (actually Marc Jacob’s dress) has inspired many resort collections this year, I will rather talk about two of the trends we saw in the resort 2010 collections – the use of metallic silk and draping.
Chris Benz’s cascading metallic halter dress, Roksanda Ilinci liquid metallic one shoulder number, Alexander Wang’s draped metallic blue sparkler and Monique Lhuillier’s Grecian inspired gown.
