We saw the exact same dresses last season. Like the exact same ones.
The models are the only thing keeping me from closing this page.

Does anyone else think the last section just screams 'please, please, please pick me for Oscar season', but in a really desperate, pathetic way. I guess someone B/C list would if they didn't have the hollywood clout to command more-skilled HC cutting, a la Galliano's Dior or any other Paris-based designer, or weren't forced to wear Marchesa.

the collections look the same every season, apart from a few standout dresses that surely end up on the red carpet I'm incredibly bored by it....

Zac Posen's problem lies in his obsession with trying to be 'more glamorous than the rest'. He lets competition get in the way a lot I think. He needs to drop the paranoia and just focus on making beautiful and creative clothes, rather than just more 'glamorous' dresses. He's clearly still trying to nab the Dior spot. I don't know if LVMH will even consider him or not, but I don't think he's ready for the hotseat just yet.

These dresses are pretty but they can be so easily dismissed as "nice". The 5th to last dress is my favourite and it's not because of the dress

Another amazing Zac collection, Im glad he stayed consistent with what he did last season because this is what he does best, elegant amazing old Hollywood gowns. Love the asian influence on the collection, the printed dresses are some of my favs, and some stunning evening gowns that are begging to be worn on the red carpet esp the ones on Tanya, Hilary and Olga

Season after season, just tragic. Even Christian Siriano shows more taste and variation than Zac Posen. And that's saying something.

Great Collection but honestly I feel like I'm seeing the same dresses over just in different colors. To many mermaid sillouhettes in one collection....It would have benefited him to do more gowns in another shape besides the mermaid its becoming a bit redundant and repetitive...
