phillip lim always sneaks up on me

Phillip Lim is not a designer whose collections I really follow; he's not first on my list of whose shows to look at. There are a bunch of young American designers with sort of similar aesthetics, and somehow he always falls into the fold with me. But then, every once in a while, I see a few of his pieces which blow me away. And I wish they were all like that. Here are some favorites, from his Resort '10 collection.

I'm obsessed with the hippie-ish proportions of these first two looks; maybe it's the 60s girl in me, and the way they perfectly blend hippie and mod styles together.

anne hathaway

Left, in Marc Jacobs at the Cosume Institute Gala; right in Jill Stuart at Cartier.

These are two of my favorite short cocktail dresses recently; I loved Anne at the Costume Gala because she wasn't afraid to do her hair and makeup to look totally different from her usual look, and the Jill Stuart dress, with it's mix of loosely draped lace and satin shine, is such a unique and special dress. Classic and micro short at the same time.

Now if it ever stops raining here in NY, I hope to see Anne's performance in Shakespeare in the Park!
