Carlos Miele: All Grown Up For Spring 2012

The opening scene, two by two in glorious beach cover-ups.

For Spring 2012, the glamorous Miele beach beauty has gone uptown in simply stunning ways.
You can always count on a lot of leg at Carlos Miele.
I'm not sure if it was the bigger venue, the pleated gowns, or the opening looks with four models entering the runway en masse, old-school style, but this show was like watching the Miele girl grow up. She's always been old enough to wear an evening gown, but now it's not just flowing and pretty, it's also sophisticated. This development has me highly anticipating the Fall 2012 show. Meanwhile, enjoy the structured details on the flowing gowns and jumpsuit (a stronger shoulder, very 1920's in the orange) and several of the bodices.

Oh that finale dress is fun. Also fun? Carlos Miele is experimenting a little with his standard glam girl, and I really like it.
