Fall 2007 Ready-to-Wear Fashion: Part II - Old Hollywood

All runway images from

In the previous post on Fall 2007 Ready-to-Wear fashion we covered colors: Black, White, Grey, Metallics, Reds and Blues. Now let's look at the first set of trends.

Back to Glamour — Old Hollywood Style

Movie Star Style is back. Designers drew inspiration from the leading ladies of Old Hollywood, from the silent films (see post on Galliano) to the Hollywood Golden Age.

1. Kate Hepburn

Katherine Hepburn seems to have been an inspiration for the exquisitely tailored pieces by Gucci, Givenchy, and Badgley Mischka — the Kate Hepburn "signature" slacks especially are objets de désir this fall:

2. Audrey Hepburn

Perennial favorite Audrey Hepburn's inspiration was seen in the collections of Abaeté, Emporio Armani, Carmen Marc Valvo, Giorgio Armani, and Bill Blass.

3. Old Hollywood Evening Gowns.

Greta Garbo

Jean Harlow

Rita Hayworth

Gowns went glamorous and Old Hollywood, hearkening back to the 1930s and 40s, almost across the board. You can almost see the ladies of the silver screen in some of these gorgeous column dresses and movie goddess creations.

I am in awe over Alberta Ferretti. Her collection seems to be on the brighter side of Fall '07. Fits into the romantic category.

Nicole - Thanks! I love nothing better than old hollywood glamour coming back - so happy about the Fall 2007 lineup.

Model Citizen - The Givenchy trousers are exquisite, I agree! I've lived in Los Angeles but I'm currently New York based.

Fashionistakay - It was so hard trying to pick just a few Ferretti dresses - her whole collection was fabulous. Same with Badgley Mischka. I need to become famous just to have excuses to buy a gazillion of these!
