Alexander Wang Brings Back Sexy (Well, Kind of) For Fall '09

alexander-wang-fall-09
Alex Wang is known for his slouchy, boy-meets-girl tanks and tees, the kind of effortlessly chic clothes that MODs know and love. So, when we saw fox fur coming off a white leather jacket or a wooly vest that would only look good on a woodsman, we were a little thrown off. But luckily, Alex won back our love with a string of minidresses so sexy (think short, ruched, tight, or sheer in all the right places) we'd give up lunch for weeks to own them. But then again, maybe all the fur and croc (yes, there was that, too, on everything from boots to leggings) fit right in with the Michael Jackson soundtrack and condoms in our gift bags. Wonder if front row attendees like Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour tucked them away for later tonight? As for us, we're just glad we spent our Valentine's Day with plenty of Wang. Yes, the jokes just keep on coming…
