My Fashion Week: L'wren Scott

Some personal infor from wikipedia:

L'Wren Scott (born Luann Bambrough in 1967) is an American fashion designer, costume designer, stylist and model.
Born and raised in Utah, USA. She is noted for her height of 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in). Her legs measure 42 inches. Today she splits her time between London, New York and Paris.

At the suggestion of photographer Bruce Weber who spotted her at a Calvin Klein photo shoot, she left Utah aged 18 for Paris to pursue a career as a model. In Paris, she went on to work for Thierry Mugler and Chanel - and model for renowned photographers Guy Bourdin, David Bailey and Jean-Paul Goude. Modelling gave her an entree into the world of fashion - where she befriended designers and patten cutters.

Beau Monde: The name of L'Wren Scott's Spring collection was a reference to beautiful people in the heyday of the French Riviera. But by the designer's own admission, the women who dressed for lunch at the Hotel du Cap didn't figure quite so literally. You saw the reference here and there in the sunny yellows and sky blues, the candy stripe on a high-neck blouse or the lining of a coat, and in soft Gatsby-esque dresses, a continuation of Scott's experiments with a looser silhouette—but really it was more a feeling. The golden era meant a cranked-up glamour with high-shine sequins and major jewels ("Everything is a bit sparkly," Scott said), but also a luxurious sense of ease. For the latter, look no further than a dusty-hued shirtdress gown worn with rolled sleeves and Scott's jaunty disk-shaped straw chapeau ni├žois. These mixed it up with her signatures. (Fans of the headmistress dress will find a new va-va-voom version, now ruched and in Valentine's Day red.)
But ultimately, the result felt a bit more all over the map from look to look than the designer's usual finely tuned composition. Scott's beau monde could easily refer to the women who wear her clothes, whether Daphne Guinness and Ellen Barkin, both at today's show, or the woman who clicks to buy on Net-a-Porter. For all her flourishes, Scott is a pragmatist and her clientele serves as her true muse. When the collection is pulled out in pieces, they'll be a typically happy group. As for her new line of bags, which debuted last season, there weren't many on the runway. But Scott wanted to see them elsewhere, tucked under the long tables that seated the lunching editors at Milk Gallery. "If I see them coming through the front door," she said, "I know it's a good sign."

Samira Carvalho, the first model I dressed.

Kristina Romanova, the second model I dressed.

Yulia Kharlapanova, the third Model I dressed. Each model had one look so dressing three was no problem.

Shena Moulton. Poor girl had hair spray sprayed into her eyes right before the show started by a careless hair dresser who didn't seem all that concerned from where I was standing and I was standing really close and saw it happen. He was fixing the hair of the model in front of her and when he did a flourish with the spray can, he got Shena in her eyes. Since I once sprayed perfume in my eyes, I know how she felt. It stings like a Muthaf*cka!

The designer, L'wren Scott. And she really is that tall..even taller in heels! And you won't believe the surprise we all got at this show...L'wren's boyfriend!  It's none other than....

...Mick Jagger! He is shorter that I expected and he looks as old as he does in this picture! He sure does love his women tall.

The pictures are from a yahoo search on Mick.
