We set free an audible gasp once we came upon that Zac Posen can be shutting down his namesake label. The New York dressmaker has been a staple on the purple carpet for nearly 20 years. Since his eponymous label launched in 2001, Posen has dressed many A-listers in his romantic, flattering and showstopping designs. (We’re speaking Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna, Katie Holmes and loads of others.) And there was nearly at all times not less than one Zac Posen take a look at each award present, from the Oscars to the Emmys. To not point out the Met Gala the place the designer’s tremendous structured creations stood out irrespective of the theme.
So now that the model is not any extra, we determined one of the simplest ways to pay homage was to look again on the designer’s many purple carpet highlights.
