I'm a tad behind on fashion week coverage so let's flashback to the BCBG Max Azria Fall 2010 runway show, part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. This collection was all about flowing lines, layering and ladylike draping. A mostly muted palette of grays, blues, and blacks was punctuated by the occasional hit of sporty yellow. Artful sequin embellishments, abstract appliques and colorblocking kept things interesting. Highlights for me included a number of sophisticated fluid dresses cinched at the waist with wide belts, which gave some much-needed structure. While this collection was strong and very wearable, I missed the exuberance that usually comes from a young-minded brand like BCBG. Ultimately, though, this is one show I will never forget because I spotted for the first time Vogue editor Anna Wintour sitting in the second or third row on the opposite side of the runway. Thrilling!
