ABOUT LUELLA’S UNDERAGE SEX APPEAL
There’s something child-like about Luella shows year after year. Either it’s a catwalk full of kiddy Halloween costume inspired wear, or it’s Minnie Mouse head-bows like this season. The models are clutching their luscious leather handbags as if beloved teddy bears and their make up looks like it was done by an eight year old.

Although we may sound critical, we actually think there’s something sexy about grown women dressing like little girls. We wonder if Anna Wintour, sitting front row, is thinking the same thing. The innocence and playfulness of Luella’s designs bursts in like a ray of sunshine onto a dark runway. Another repetitive trend for her S/S collections has been flower patterns, but the way Luella does flowers leaves no doubt they will be the ones picked off the racks. Her charming dresses, fit for an English Rose with a hidden thorn, boast a full skirt and a cut out heart detail over the chest. As if stolen from some poor unsuspecting doll’s closet, the rest of the collection included high-waist polka dot shorts, downy dresses, and cute Marilyn-like coats…a sex symbol who knew ALL about acting like a little girl.
Incidentally we also visited London Fashion Weekend, a shopping event organized by ELLE Magazine, and noticed that Luella’s booth was swarming with customers picking through last seasons items.

S/S TREND WATCH – Luella: polka dots, short dresses with a full skirt, full shoulders, flowers, bright colors, and raiding your kid sister’s closet.

    >I love this and hate to admit that I can defiantly see these fashion working off the runway. Looking young has never been so fun!
