    You haven't seen girl power until you've seen one of Lauren Moffatt's models holding a badminton racket. These ladies were determined to get those birdies flying in the name of fashion, pausing only to strike a pose in her spring '13 collection — which featured plenty of stripes, polka dots, and patterns. Greeting guests with bright colors and runways of (imitation) grass, Lauren took retro backyard fun to a whole new level. Backstage, she told us a little bit about the inspiration behind her collection, explaining that it's "a combination of the very classic look of lawn tennis in the '60s, and a colorful city pool." Well, she nailed it.

    Lauren also decorated her models with a slew of seriously chic accessories from Selima Optique eyewear, Growing jewelry, and Tracy Watts headwear (did we mention there were visors?). For footwear, models wore repurposed Keds, which Lauren put on platforms and covered in canvas (you know, for that added height over the net).

    We were smitten with the bright coral accents strewn among the pieces, which Lauren admits she's unable to resist for warmer weather. "For us, spring is always very, very colorful. Lots of pops of bright orange — we were sort of feeling a really coral-y orange — with teal. That's our go-to. I can't get around it in the summer."

    Lauren's presentation reminded us of the fleeting, carefree days of summer — and the promise of its fashionable return. Though we love a bit of Andy Roddick on the tennis court, Lauren's girls stole the show with their flying birdies and effortless glamour.
