Reem Acra: HWD girl

Reem Acra! She is so Hollywood conscious and we live for this. After all, whether it’s the Emmys or the upcoming Oscars, that’s where she is always highlighted; her looks outshine. But, says the designer, Pre-Fall is also “for the client,” which means that there was a mix of offerings here, ranging from cocktail pieces to those floor-length, camera flash–inducing gowns. The would-be red carpet numbers are predictably the best.There were champagne pink and lavender gowns with taffeta layers and Chantilly lace bustiers, dotted with flower appliqués. On the more skin-flaunting side, there was pretty naval-diving décolletage on a rose-color gown, as well as a spaghetti-strap lilac piece with a flint-hued, embroidered mini-bust for a bombshell effect. For those not strutting the Hollywood welcome mat, Acra did plenty of LBDs.

The weightlessness makes these pieces easy-to-wear—a big plus for all of Acra’s clientele, whether or not they are a silver-screen regular. XXOO
