Runway Retrospective

Hey Sophisticates - Cristina here, and I'm going to start by stating the obvious: that is some seriously great hair. There's a chance that I have been blinded by the haircut in this collection, but I'm pretty sure the clothes are gorgeous too. 

10 Crosby Derek Lam gave hope to bloggers everywhere by choosing a blogger, Emily Weiss of Into the Gloss, to model the lookbook. Emily got to style the looks herself as well! Wouldn't that be lovely? To style and model a collection while rocking your fabulous haircut? I wouldn't mind that one bit.

Find more fashion inspiration on Cristina's international design and style blog, Fuji Files. And, remember to look for her Runway Retrospective column here on Young Sophisticates!

Have you shopped the Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection yet? I've already purchased some amazing gifts for family and friends! 

These CFDA designers are seriously talented and created such beautiful items! I especially loved this Lela Rose top & that Altuzarra tray.
