The Ladies, and Bergdorf, Love Posen


Zac Posen, clad in a white tuxedo, gabbed with the ladies at Bergdorf Goodman today. After a luncheon to celebrate his new beauty product, the Front Row Facial, Posen dropped down to the third floor to show off his new and hugely celebrated fall collection. His latest designs have a newfound touch of sophistication — from joyful outbursts of color, like neon-green cocktail dresses, to architecturally inspired pieces, like Gwyneth Paltrow's Oscar gown (pictured), Posen has made an aesthetic advance. We aren't the only ones taking notice. Actress Lucy Liu, Posen's date to last week's Met Gala, "really loves" the collection, Posen admits. So how did the two meet up? "We dressed her for Vanity Fair, you know. And I sort of met her through that and really liked her." "She's a powerful, intelligent woman," he adds. Considering the crowd at the trunk show today, Liu isn't the only smart girl placing orders. —Kendall Herbst
