Fashion Week Diaries: At Pamella Roland, Fake Snow And White Tights

February 19, 2009 by Rebekah

With faux snow and fun music, the beginning of Pamella Roland’s Fall 2009 show was really quite enchanting, as seen from my perch on a standing-room-only-no-actually-please-fill-an-empty-seat seat. So thank you, defaulting fashion editors who had more important things to do.

In all, Ms. DeVos (the line’s designer) trotted fifty-six outfits down the runway, and for that I must applaud her. Some were pretty dresses (left), and some articulated the Russian theme a little too well to be practical (center), and some were in between (right).

One sad observation: Paris Hilton (who is everywhere this week) in some sort of all-white getup – complete with shoes, tights and sunglasses – which I immediately Twittered about . Then, to my chagrin, said chalky tights appeared on the runway! Thankfully, they only showed up once.

Many of the other Roland models were clad in more flattering, more older-than-a-toddler-appropriate tights in blacks, browns and purples. We like these better. We also loved these subtle ombre tights (below) that a stylish woman outside the show paired with a black and gray ensemble. You can make your own ombre pair, or if you prefer, just pick up a navy pair ($12) from Urban Outfitters.

The final tally:

Outfits I’d Gleefully Wear: About 28
Outfits I’d Play Dress-Up In: About 28
White Tights: 2
Hiltons: 2
Obnoxious PR Chicks: 0!

Total Score: Good to Excellent, with major bonus points for nobody yelling at me unnecessarily.
