Whitney Port has come a long way. Port was originally introduced to the fashion world as a Teen Vogue intern on the MTV reality show “The Hills,” then as the star of “The City,” turned author, and now she’s paving her way as a fashion designer.
The Fall 2012 collection of Whitney Eve showcased Whitney’s evolution as a designer, her creativity and knack for personal style. Beyonce’s “Run the World” accompanied models sauntering down the runway of Lincoln Center’s Studio, in sophisticated yet comfortable cocktail attire, featuring peplum blouses and fitted blazers.
The collection offered more layers and textures to play with, and dashes of color in burnt orange velvet trousers and a silk royal blue blouse. Port tempered with an array of mixed prints and fitted dresses with more simple pieces, such as a cream shift dress paired with a light weight sweater, giving the line-up a breath of fresh air that eased onlookers’ dissecting eyes.
Traces of Port’s L.A. style can be seen in the cropped proportions, effortless styling, and flirty floral prints scattered throughout the collection. Whitney Eve presents plenty of mix-and-match-ready patterned separates prime for workday wear, but everything looked beautifully finished.
