I think several pieces are quite good, actually. That frilly, ruffled beauty of a thing in picture 4/post 1 is covetable. As is the blk. lace top in picture 3/post 3! Though anything sarcophagus related warms my heart.

Overall, the styling is a pain, esp. the first look. It's so 'of the moment', imo. Retrenchs the spirit of the clothing. Nothing novel to speak of, but it certaintly isn't 'bad' and it's very L'Wren, aswell.

Thanks, thefunkykitten! The indigo blues would look lovely against the red carpet. And... there is always room for more velvet. However, I don't feel this is a S/S collection at all. Also, the shoes are really distracting to the eye.

Agree, I too thought that shawl was one of the standout pieces. I like this, and I have no quarrel with where L'Wren came from. She is not designing for my body type, but that's OK One of the dresses (teal satin I believe) is quite unflattering on even the model, I can just imagine it on a real body, good Lord ...

I'm not a skull person, but the little skull ornament is darling.

And as far as the skinny jeans ... I'm sure it hasn't escaped her notice that they're not as hot as they once were, but she's being true to her silhouette, can't argue with that.

Oh, and the 'embellished dresses', especially the last one, looks like a tacky prom dress that you can buy for $99!

I see what you're saying.

I do think some pieces are very cute, but in a Bebe/Arden B. way, kinda tacky, but cute for going out, still I would bet that this line is terribly overpriced, as most "celebrity" lines are. I wouldn't pay more than 100-150 bucks for most of the pieces...

The first 2 dresses in post #2 are really nice until the shoes. Slippers? The opera cape in post #2 is beautiful. In post #2 the fourth look---Is that a cardigan cape or does it have sleeves?
