Inspirational Eveningwear From Sophie Theallet

Three looks from Sophie Theallet's spring 2011 collection.

Sophie Theallet showed 30 dresses at Lincoln Center last night, as Ikram Goldman (stylist to Michelle Obama) stood at the front and proclaimed her love of the evening gowns. Theallet operates her company out of her Brooklyn Heights apartment: Her husband runs the business from a desk in the hall, while she drapes and cuts and sews in the living room. The spring 2011 collection is feminine and easy, and the fact that it has the potential to go from that small living room to the wardrobe of the most photographed woman in the country is inspiring.
