Fashion Week Backtrack: Jason Wu-Ha Got you all in check!
I HATE Jason Wu. I hate him because he is only 23, really cute, succesful and just oozing talent. He’s got it going on in all areas and for that, I cannot stand him. Okay, I don’t really hate him — how could I? Just look at his sweet face, it’s impossible. But DAMNIT, I am jealous and I’m not ashamed to admit that.
While everyone was excited about Zac Posen, I was excited about Jason Wu, I felt like I was going to pee my pants, I absolutely could not wait. I don’t just like his clothes, I also enjoy saying his name:
Is it time for Jason Wu yet? Are you going to Jason Wu? Jason Wu, Wooo woo wooo!
Why? Probably because I’m immature and his name reminds me of The Wu Tang Clan and old Busta Rhymes song. Whatever.
Now, let’s talk about what REALLY matters here; his collection…and what a collection it was! Beautiful, clean, pristine. Crisp timeless perfection for all of you modern day Jackie O’s out there!
Just when I thought that I never wanted to see a bolero again, he made the one pictured above that captured my attention and made me re-evaluate my opinion. The look was obviously very tailored, monochromatic and a dramatic difference from a lot of the slouchy, waistless looks we have been seeing at the other shows. This is an instance where I feel that the clothes really speak for themselves so I’m not going to bother to say much about them. Just look and revel in their beauty as I did. Wu obviously excels in the realm of nostalgic evening wear.
What I didn’t like: The makeup
