From a vibrant, one-shoulder gown fit for a First Lady to a revealing gown perfect for a sexy pop star, there wasn’t a shortage of show-stopping glamour on the Naeem Khan runway!
Naeem Khan is a staple on the red carpet and the designer is synonymous with glamorous evening wear, which is why it comes as no surprise that his Fall 2013 collection boasted one dramatic dress after another. Who could forget that the fashionable First Lady herself, Michelle Obama, is one of his biggest fans? In fact, she selected a custom-made metallic gown by the designer when she presented at the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24 — and we could see her show off a slew of other looks from the Fall 2013 collection! There was a blue, one-shoulder gown with a satin tie that cinched in the model’s waist and accentuated her figure that would be perfect for Michelle, especially since the First Lady loves flattering looks that allow her to flaunt one of her best assets, her toned arms.
Sexy, Red-Carpet-Worthy Style On The Runway:
While the collection consisted of timeless, conservative chic looks we also saw gorgeous gowns that were fit for some of our favorite red carpet divas! If a star is looking to make a memorable, over-the-top entrance at their next event, than they should look no further than the runway. With strategic cutouts that flaunted cleavage to thigh-high slits and open-back detailing, the designer crafted looks that embrace the sexy side of a woman in a seriously chic way. Stars who love to flaunt their curves, like Katy Perry and Nina Dobrev, (who wore one of the designer’s printed gowns from the collection to the Elton John Oscars party), can easily stun in these sexy looks — and I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we see them showing off these dresses!
The Inspiration Behind The Collection:
Inspired by the Byzantine Empire, it was all about the luxe details. The designer incorporated velvet and Ottoman embroidery into the collection, while gowns in rich jewel tones added a dramatic burst of color in commanding reds and blues — and is wasn’t all about the gowns! While the gorgeous evening wear proved to be the highlight of the collection, there were also pretty, A-line dresses and separates that are just as red-carpet-worthy for a casual photocall or premiere.
The flattering, feminine silhouettes and key construction set the designer’s work apart, while the intricate beading, embroidery and embellishments really added to the rich collection — check it out here and let us know who you hope to see wearing one of the gorgeous looks!
