New York Fashion Week: L'Wren Scott's 'Mad Men' style
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.
