I'm crazy about fashion/costume designer L'wren Scott these days because with her it's all about the woman. She understands that at the end of the day it's less about the artistic statement and more about honoring the women who wears the clothes. She's making an impact on the red carpet having dressed stars such as Mariah Carey and Nicole Kidman. Her designs hug the female silhouette, not with a cloying hug (the kind that is too tight and last just a few seconds too long) but with a warm embrace that accentuates the woman's Goddesss like assets. She limits her collections to a few key designs; knee length dresses, slender pants (right, not for everyone), trench coats and some show-stopping sheaths. She sticks to a simple no-nonsense color pallete and infuses her graphic designs with incredible detail and luxurious materials. While we all can't look like her(she's a tall, skinny thing and former model) we'd feel incredible in her clothes. Fabolah! No wonder she's becoming popular on the red carpet.
Okay, admittedly if you're not a Hollywood A-lister her line is hard to find, but you can purchase some of her line at Shop Style and soon at Net-A-Porter.
