Photos: Vivienne Tam Fall 2009 Collection Presentation

Vivienne Tam Fall 2009 Collection

As promised, here are photos I took at last night's Vivienne Tam Fall 2009 Collection Presentation, part of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. My favorite part of the collection had to be the colors—rich reds and purples rendered in luminous satin and light-as-air chiffon—as well as the delicate, three-dimensional floral details on some of the dresses that had a handmade, artistic quality to them that I just love. It's not exactly budget but it's definitely inspiring! Keep reading to see all the pics.

Because they're hungry! Haha. Myself, I'm content to have a normal, healthy BMI and indulge in the occasional slice (or three) of pizza. In all seriousness - It's probably a combination of the girls wanting to give "the look" and the wishes of the designer, although I do like my hunger theory ... :-P

But ANYWAY ... Gooorgeous! Congratulations on the invitation, BB!

I'm so envious! But I totally appreciate you sharing the scoop with us. :-) That red shift with the mock t-neck is to-die-for!
