2010 Spring New York Fashion Week: Phillip Lim

When the runway is red and the invite has a threaded red stripe through it, does that promise a red-hot collection? When it's Phillip Lim it does. As expected, Lim's first couple looks were red — a lipstick-red double-breasted shirt jacket and roll-down waist pants, a slick red rain trench, red crystal sunglasses (have to have those). But Lim knows you can have too much of a good thing and quickly switched to cool gray knits and his favorite tomboyish shorts, cardis, and button downs.

Unordinary details like "illusion" bow fasteners, embellished belts, and collaged textures separated Lim from the rest. And then came the sparkle. Bronze and silver sequin panels on accordion pleat dresses and a straight-up silver sequin shirt dress surely sent front rowers Lauren Conrad and Leighton Meester's hearts aflutter. And the finale dress, on death-staring Karlie Kloss: ivory lace tiered "compilation" dress with abstract cubist sculptural organza appliqué. The mirrors at the entrance of the runway made Karlie appear to be strutting through the looking glass . . .
