Fashion Week 2009: Miss Sixty Show

A Model in Miss Sixty Leather Shorts During Fashion Week 2009

If I could use one word to describe the Miss Sixty show, it would be without a doubt "cool." I almost felt uber-hip just watching from the seats — maybe I got a contact high from all the coolness in the air.

Mischa Barton was there in the front row sitting next to the redhead model Coco Rocha — and let me tell you about these young celebs and their hair extensions. Mischa almost outdid Linday Lohan’s crazy long hair with her massive amounts of dirty blonde curls. I mean it looked amazing, but no one actually has hair like that. I thought maybe it was her cascading tendrils that made Mischa laugh and smile throughout the whole show — but actually I just read somewhere that she and Coco were trying to make the models laugh as they walked down the runway. What do you think of that?

Okay, let’s get to the clothes: even more late '80s and early '90s attire has made its way onto the runway. I am talking more plaid and shoulder pads with some acid washed jeans added into the mix. If you can’t afford to buy designer (like most of us), it may be time to hit up your local thrift store for some throwback flare. If you’re cringing at revisiting this time in fashion history, Miss Sixty has a way of making it look modern, even futuristic. So take a peek at the line for some inspiration first.

I will say that I would not wear a lot of the stuff heading down that runway (hello high-wasted leather underpants!), and some things even caught me a bit off guard (huge poofy dresses) but I liked the overall theme and flow of the show. And as I said, it was oh so cool. My favorite was the use of bold and colorful prints — a soft pink leopard print, one that almost looked like newspaper and my favorite that had to be inspired by the pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (see below). And I think they are trying to bring back the fedora.

So would you wear any of Miss Sixty’s Fall Line?


P.S. Some trends I am still noticing — velvet, acid-washed jeans, leather, over-the-knee boots, pointy shoulder pads, pleats, harem pants, corsets, jumpsuits, turtlenecks, and heels with socks. Can you get into any of these?

P.P.S. I took my pics with this awesome camera!
