Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Hudson and Drew Barrymore are just a few stars who love Lanvin. It’s one of my all-time favorite lines, but it’s extremely expensive, so I mostly admire it from afar… until now!
Today on Access Hollywood Live we had a fashion show featuring the new Lanvin for H&M Collection, so it was cool to get a sneak peek at the collection up close. Before the show, I was backstage with the models and got to take a really good look at all the clothes, feel the fabrics and I even tried on a couple of things!
I felt like it was my own personal preview!
The 30-piece collection includes both apparel and accessories. Prices range from $10 to $350.
Some standouts? A black, taffeta dress with an asymmetrical, ruffled neckline and elastic at the waist. Wow! Gorgeous… the fabric feels luxurious and it looks very expensive, but costs $199. A similar dress from the high-end collection would be in the thousands. I predict right now that it will be one of the first things to sell out. It also comes in a bright mustard yellow color, which would be pretty on the right skin tone, but not mine, unfortunately. A navy blue satin dress with ruffles, paired with a red necklace was also beautiful and will be a big seller. A red ruffled dress with an embellished neckline looks far more expensive than the $199 it costs.
A faux fur vest with ribbon detail is adorable at $99. A graphic embellished T-shirt with a whimsical illustration of a lady is $49.00 and looks exactly like the more expensive shirts in the original designer line. A black tulle jacket is a stylish $59.
There are also lipsticks, sunglasses, jewelry and bags. A fun floral purse with a chain strap and orange ribbon flower detail, packs a lot of style for $49.95. I love the satin leopard heels with rhinestone detail on the heels. Sexy and a wallet-friendly $99!
But the piece that made my heart stop was a leopard print trench coat. I loved it so much I had to try it on immediately. Now I just need someone to go stand in line for me when the line hits stores! The Lanvin for H&M Collection will be in more than 200 H&M stores worldwide starting on November 20th. Go to www.hm.com for more info.
