Fashion Photo of the Day 10/29/13 - Krysten Ritter
Krysten Ritter looked absolutely stunning at the Van Cleef and Arpels Bowers Museum Exhibit Gala in Santa Ana. When I first saw this look, I thought Audrey Hepburn. Ritter looked classic, chic, elegant but with a modern twist. The lilac hue and full skirt is so feminine and her bare middle and berry lips added a hint of sexiness. This Katie Ermilio dress is really the perfect combination of old and new.
I was not familiar with Katie Emilio until now. After looking her up it all makes sense and I have to say, I am now a little bit obsessed. If you don't know who she is, do yourself a favor and visit her website! I was close when I thought Audrey Hepburn, but Emilio's inspiration comes from Grace Kelly.
About Katie Emilio:
As the granddaughter of Grace Kelly's personal clothier, it's easy to see a sense of history in Katie Ermilio's clothes.
From the iconic green jacket her grandfather designed for The Masters Tournament at Augusta, to the Eisenhower jacket he created for World War II, Katie's legacy has inspired not only her love of fashion, but also the garments she creates. Designing clothes from the time she was 12, Katie continues to draw on the heritage that shapes her work.
At 27, a life-long education in tailoring acquired in her father's custom clothing shop acquainted Katie with the principles of construction and fundamentals of design. Infusing each distinctly feminine piece with sharp tailoring and soft drape, her clothes embody the modern interpretation of timeless dress.
Today, Katie's work has been featured on TEEN Vogue's very pages and in publications ranging from The Wall Street Journal to VOGUE Australia. Her designs are sold across the world in destination specialty stores and boutiques including Barneys New York. The New York Times' The Moment, ELLE, and Women's Wear Daily have each highlighted her collections and career in design
