CAROLINA HERRERA FALL 2008: BIRDS OF A FEATHER...

Carolina Herrera, known for her timeless style* (personal and runway), presented a Fall 2008 show for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week that is influenced, in large part, by the English countryside.

Feathers and fur and lots of flounce...equine influenced boots and pants, plaid and corduroy... and those little leprechaun hats! She certainly stays on theme, and on trend--she has managed to incorporate all the major elements of Spring 2008 into this collection--lots of bold color, tribal/ethnic prints and pretty flowers. Check out a few of my favorites in the slide below.

I really, really, REALLY hope Obama beats Clinton. We do not need the Clintons in the White House again. Just my two cents - I guess we all have our opinions. We shouldn't really be voting for people JUST because they are a woman or JUST because they are African American.

Anyway, back to the post. :) I cannot picture Hillary in her clothes...that would be a pretty hilarious site. By the way, I love the collection - well some of it, anyway - even though I would never wear it. It DOES incorporate a lot of spring trends, and the some of the coats and dresses are gorgeous. I love the brown/gold strapless gown!

Thanks so much for the comments everyone! I really appreciate your readership! Fabulous, I really like Hillary and Barack, but I'm definitely a Barack supporter

(see this post:
http://stylechile.blogspot.com/2007/05/mr-president.html). I do think that folks should vote their conscience however.

I think Hillary would look great in C. Herrera's clothes... for the most part, they are timeless classics- Ms. Herrera' personal style included. I love how she pairs a crisp white button down with fabulous skirts! I feel you though, Hill might look foolish in those litte hats!

Thanks again for reading!!! xoxox

LOL! Love your comment about Hillary...can't believe she opted out of the Vogue cover last minute! No one disses Anna Wintour! I think it's time for something other than a pantsuit!
