Naeem Khan Fall 2008 Collection

The stars were aligned for the opening of Naeem Khan's Fall 2008 collection yesterday morning in Bryant Park, first with Eva Longoria's hair and makeup looking beyond perfect. But then, after the first look stepped onto the runway, one stopped looking at Eva and could see only the clothes. And next came the immediate audience buzz of approval. This show had some separates, but they aren't exactly day wear. His tuxedo pant is perfect and his feathers, like the cape shown with a satin blouse and pants, are fantastic. Naeem Khan is all about red carpet luxury and for this his collection is very good. Towards the end I tired of the excess of animal print, python and metallic gowns. But they didn't erase the rest of the collection from one's mind. If I was Eva, I'd get that black silk satin column and the black floral lace gown that elicited many oohs and aahs, and then I'd buy me that beaded vest.
