If there's one actress in Hollywood that's doing it for me at the moment, it's Emma Stone. So far her looks have continued to go down well but yesterday this dress split opinions.
Stone attended the premiere for her latest movie, 'The Amazing Spider-Man', in Tokyo wearing this brown Rochas Fall 2012 dress. Many have criticised the dress as looking 'drab', I disagree. While it's not my favourite look from her but considering that it isn't the easiest piece to pull of, she didn't do a bad job. All I wish was that her stylist added a statement necklace to jazz the dress up.
Marco Zanini's collection at Rochas moved away from movie references this season and instead, the pottery of Swedish artist Wilhelm Kage served as the starting point. This translated onto a collection that was full of geometric contrasting prints and despite Zanini calling the combinations a 'certain disregard for quiet good taste', it really worked.
His latest offerings were a lot more desirable and in tune with what people want to wear compared to the formal fifties theme that he showed for spring. The clashing prints - particularly on shirts tucked into high waisted skirts - isn't for the faint hearted but will undoubtedly be seen on the backs of the fashion pack at the shows next season. On the more wearable looks, the prints were toned down by teaming them with simple pieces like a textured skirt or simple ribbed knits. Colour-wise there was everything you could ask for from a fall collection like rich goldish-browns, navys and autumnal green.
