Rafael Cennamo Fall '12 Collection

This show had me half swooning and half wondering where the prom was. But the swooning half really, really finds this to be a perfect freaking dress:

I can overlook a lot of prom for a perfect freaking dress. Granted, the neckline is a little too plunging for off the presentation platform, but I'm sure the store version will be altered. Here are some other looks, starting with prom...

Gorgeous non-prom...

Fabulously not prom...

And prom:

Although I kind of love the fabric on this one. Maybe it's the crown of thorns look that's pushing it to "prom?" I'm a big fan of the grey hair (wigs and real) seen on the runways this season. Cennamo's models had grey color sprayed on top of the model's hair, and I loved that look, too. It added a demented feel to the prom-like dresses, so perhaps I'm now a bigger fan of Cennamo's prom look than when I started this post? Going gray myself, and dreaming of the day that I just dye it all grey for a Kristen McMenamy look, I wholly support this graying trend. And Cennamo for fall? Yes for the prom and yes for everything else.
