Vera Wang S/S 2013- Gemstone Colours

The Vera Wang collection had models arrayed in a series of rich, gemstone colours.

The first few looks were in all-white but then we saw shades of blue topaz, emerald, amethyst as well as black, gold and yellow.

Here we have a look seen quite regularly recently, a long tunic top with 3/4 length trousers. 

 

The blue topaz looks start appearing and we see a pattern of leaves which add to the garden atmosphere of the show.


An off-the-shoulder dress with embellishments on the ends of the sleeves. This was a common theme of the show, to have jewels and embellishments on pockets, shoulders and the ends of sleeves. 


Another example of the detail on the "pocket" area as well as a layer of sheer lace on the end of the dress.

 

More lace on the end of dresses, this time we see the design on a shiny, emerald fabric that falls off the model's body.


This dress is very regal as the combination of green and gold connotes, the gold detailing on the top part also resembles gold applique.

 

This golden outfit glitters down the runway, a tunic with 3/4 trousers again, the shimmering gold top seems to be a staple piece in many of the S/S collections this year.


The closing look, a shimmering, floor-length dress with a V-shaped neckline. Again, the sheerness appears on the bottom of the dress for a sexy, yet less revealing look.
