New York Fashion Week: L'Wren Scott's 'Mad Men' style
February 19, 2010 | 4:30 pm
Christina Hendricks was front and center at L'Wren Scott's show, and the voluptuous "Mad Men" star could well have been the designer's muse for this season's collection. (Hendricks wore a burgundy Scott dress to the Directors Guild Awards recently.) Gone were the long, lanky, rock star styles of Scott's past, and in their place was head-turning retro glamour of the red lipstick-wearing sort.
This collection also seemed to expand her range, suggesting that the stylist-turned-designer may be ready to cater to more than the cookie-cutter-stick-thin starlet.
On the runway, it was all about playing up the curves. Standout pieces included a pencil skirt worn with a frilly-collared red velvet jacket nipped in at the waist, a gray wool shift with black lace embroidery at the hem, and a purple tweed cutaway coat worn over wide trousers.
