The Spring Runway Trend That Was Meant to Ruffle Feathers
The feathers were most definitely flying on the runways for Spring, and designers made it abundantly clear that a little touch of plumage can go a long way. At Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs showed an innocent young debutante, flitting about in frothy feather-trim dresses and candy-colored pencil skirts, while Ralph Lauren's runway spotlighted full-blown Great Gatsby-era opulence, giving way to beaded gowns and marabou toppers. Not only were feathers a huge runway trend, but they've been taking off on the red carpet too — just recently at the 2012 Met Gala, style stars like Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, and Beyoncé all sported gorgeous gowns fitted with the fluffy stuff, proving that feathers can look fun, flirty, and ultimately glamorous. The best news of all? A feathered dress, skirt, or a bit of feather trim on a top can be incredibly wearable for day or night.
