DESIGNER: Isaac Mizrahi
INSPIRATION: Cake, cake and more cake
WHO WAS THERE: Johnny Weir, Veronica Webb
TOP LOOKS: Giant-scale pansy print in purple and orange; molded gray flannel skirt with funnel-neck top accessorized with a white necklace to look like Wedgewood
ACCESSORIES: Do pink and orange poodles count? Odd fuzzy balls of hair piled on the models heads?
WHAT WE THOUGHT: A lot was going on at this presentation. For starters, the show "Cake Boss" was filming, so the model looks were interspersed with men carrying complementary cakes. And then there were the dogs, specifically, poodles painted colors to match the dresses. Oh, and the clothes. It seems theatrics often overshadow the product at Isaac Mizrahi, and this season was no exception. His Fall 2011 offerings are pretty simple -- sheaths, lovely dresses and gowns -- so perhaps the lack of sartorial gimmicks explains why the designer felt he needed the props.
