Herve Leger: Body-con and Nicki Minaj
At Herve Leger, poured on body-con slithers that molded to every curve were, natch, out in full force -- these amped up with sexy cutouts (how could they be any sexier?), peplums, gold-tone zippers galore, fringe trim and wide, wide leather corsets. In some case cinched waists were so exaggerated that the models looked like comic book super heroines -- but hey, who doesn’t want to be Wonder Woman?
Speaking of whom, Nicki Minaj, came out late from backstage nearly causing a riot. She required some half-dozen security guards to fend off fans (word is, they did not take a gentle approach). As for Ms. Minaj, who notoriously favors that poured-on silhouette, she took lots of photos and seemed enchanted by the vixen-wear.
More conservative types, Minaj not included, will relish the blushy and denim palette with geometric patterns and touches of flesh-flashing crochet.
