Fashion Week: Costello Tagliapietra

By: TJ Kennedy

The look at Costello gave a colorful twist to the classic working girl wardrobe with vibrant prints and classic neutrals. Printed dresses with expert draping and tailored detail made for a simple, sophisticated collection. Who says DVF is the only designer who rocks the wrap dress?

 

Standout trend: A rich emerald green evening dress with long sleeves and a sliver of exposed back.

How to get the look: The messy pinned back low bun takes a lot of product and an unbelievable amount of bobby pins, but it'll last through an entire evening. It's easiest with unwashed hair and extra-hold spray. Loosely pull hair back and start pinning with large bobby pins one piece at a time until it's all pulled up and spray, spray, spray. Copper eyeshadow has been seen all over runways this season and Costello took it to an extreme with matching colored lips and bold bronzed cheeks. We say stick to one or the other for a unexpectedly fresh pop of color.

Who makes it work: The successful career woman who wears her YSL pumps all day and doesn't have he time to change before drinks and dinner at Le Cirque.
