Top Five 2/9/12

Top Five Designers 2/9/12
Minty Fresh
Juan Carlos Obando is fairly new to the game with his first runway show in 2008, but so far he is making a name for himself with silk dresses and fur accents.  He bringing old Hollywood glamour back in a whole new way. 
Dark Horse
Before launching his own line, Richard Chai Love, in 2009 Richard Chai worked for Marc by Marc Jacobs and started Target's Go International line.  This season his line has a very neutral color palette, which seems to be a big trend this year. 
This line was ball gowns and evening wear galore.  I must say Tadashi Shoji has a way with chiffon.  I like that he didn't fuss too much with the lines and let the fabric frame the female figure. (which it did quite eloquently)
Factory Girl
Cynthia Rowely had a very industrial revolution factory worker look going for her this season.  The cuts were sleek and feminine, and I enjoyed the models simple make up and hair that added to the industrial theme.
Vampire Wedding
Known for his love of contrast Gary Graham had a lot of pops of color blended into his muted rustic ensembles.  I love how in the above picture he make this sexy red dress modest with the sheer high cut over dress.
