Love these looks! Totally feels Winona Ryder, Tim Burton, Beetlejuice, wierdness. Nicole Miller described

Nicole Miller

 was talking about a revolution. Backstage before her show, the designer said she'd been inspired by Versailles, first by the estate's over-the-top gardens and intricate mazes, and then by the thought of fed-up peasant women storming the chateau and breaking all of the monarchy's awesome china. A print emerged—shards of broken dishware scattered among flowers. Embellishments followed—beading that resembled the swooping tiers of a grand chandelier. A slew of skinny, embroidery-embellished jeans and below-the-knee pencil skirts established the silhouette, while accented seams and figure-flattering prints, some echoing Versailles' geometric garden paths, contributed to the curve-con effect. A black neoprene skirt, pleated in the back and sequin-encrusted in the front, was worn with a pale silk shell also loaded with colorful sequins. That may sound like a lot of look, but the gems were artfully arranged. Resembling shards of broken glass, they created a clean angularity and a pleasing, graphic sharpness. Elsewhere, the bling on a fringed tank was heavy enough to cause the shirt to droop. Paired with a blousy pleated skirt, it lacked the oomph of earlier, curvier looks. There was a riot of colors and embellishments here, but also plenty of solid, standout pieces to start a wardrobe revolution of one's own.

NYFW SS 14, Mara Hoffman embraces the dashiki in a sexy way

While I appreciate the art of Mara Hoffman, I would like to see something a littl emore new and fresh from her! I love the hair though, that's the best part. If I wore anything from this show I'd look so silly!  Here are my favorites, I LOVE the first look here.
