Poetic Justice - Nina Ricci S/S 2014

Designer Peter Copping's collection of elegant feminine designs for Nina Ricci's Spring/Summer 2014 presentation proved to be the ultimate juxtaposition to a demonstration staged by Ukrainian feminist group Femen which saw two bare-chested female protesters storming the runway. A new model army of flawless beauties including Josephine Van Delden, Kate Goodling, Kai Newman, Elodia Prieto, Ophélie Guillermand, Holly Rose Emery, Natalia Siodmak, and surprise package Samantha Archibald set the tone for Copping's understated lady-like designs. However it was British newcomer Hollie May Saker who bore the brunt of the Femen protesters advances as she fended off the pair all the while maintaining her perfect pout and runway swagger. As the Femen protesters were safely escorted off the runway, the show went on with Peter Copping's poetic designs restoring a sense of equilibrium to the proceedings. With Paris Fashion Week in full flight, France's fashion elite have been hasty to anoint American Kate Goodling, Jamaican stunner Kai Newman, exotic French belles Ophélie Guillermand, and Elodia Prieto, New Zealander Holly Rose Emery, and Russian Natalia Siodmak as the new darlings of Paris' gilded high fashion runways.

    1. Thanks for the heads up, and we know that you should never mix up Aussies and New Zealanders ;-)!
