So we know we can expect sexy and edgy from Berardi but it was his Red Carpet gowns that blew us away.
It’s something when the first thing that eds are tweeting about are the kinky thigh boots – these laced all the way up the front and were every internet pron fans dream. But concentrate on the clothing, here, as is only right from a talent such as Antonio Berardi.
The tight black/white fleck tweed coats, the mini dresses and skirts paired with blousons or short boxy jackets and sometimes with corsetry, the simply beautiful suede tuxedo dress-coat, pepulms and those stunning, curved, structured sleeves on short biker style jackets are bound to turn up on every magazine editorial. But, oyvay! The slim length, make-a-statement gowns showed that Berardi means business.
Emerald green silk grosgrain with bejewelled detailing and gathered, semi-balloon sleeves, long sweeping evening skirts with peplum tops which sneaked in exposed flesh and quilted effect corsets over mean, lean, slash dresses. These Berardi dresses are set for Oscars stardom. Just working out which film stars (on advice from their A class stylists) have the savvy to carry them off.
