Reem Acra Fall 2012 began with a prelude of classy dark ensembles and skirt suits spruced up with leather opera gloves in brown and black, but I'm going to remember the show for the glamorous, gold, beaded glitter dresses that closed it. They are meant to be worn at Hollywood award ceremonies (if that's considered the height of glamour these days) because not even New York Fashion Week runway can do them justice. What I appreciate the most about Reem Acra's collection is its multifunctionality: it introduced looks you can wear to the office, to a party (that super sexy little number you can only rock with killer stems) and to the Oscars, staying cohesive and not developing in several directions that ultimately have nothing to do with each other. The most intelligently versatile collection I've seen at fashion week so far.
