Jenny PaCkhaM Go-to red carpet designer Jenny Packham showed viewers a season of dramatic style this season. Enriched with muted jewel tones and organza, the collection was smooth and subtle, and not at all boring. Transitioning from luscious peach gowns were tea length dresses with ruby accents, made sensual through the use of sheer paneling and deep necklines. Silhouettes played a huge role, and Jenny Packham knows exactly how to dress the curves of a woman’s body. With clients such as Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, Kate Middleton and Reese Witherspoon on her roster, she has unsurprisingly made the collection very accessible despite its eveningwear appeal. In her past two collections, Packham stuck to her guns by using bias-cut gowns and embellishments—clearly her two favorite distinctions in fashion. But this time she used the glitter wisely: in an effort to sparkle, not outshine. Packham has a talent for creating beautiful designs and a long list of clients that make their viewers feel like they’re on a red carpet, even just for a night. Many of the gowns would have been perfect additions to recent “best-dressed” lists during the awards season, but we are sure this won’t be the last time we see her evening wear shine.
