Whether obviously sexy clothes come naturally is another story. “It’s hard for me. I cannot tell a lie,” says Vera Wang. She took a considered approach to the spring collection’s slimmed-down, sheer look. Wang tends toward layers and avant-garde cuts, but this was simplified, beginning with a fitted jacket over a womanly, full skirt and ending with a lean, sheer, embroidered column gown with a V-neck. “I hope I found my own translation of [sexy], because it is important. And I’m not just talking Hollywood. I’m talking life. I’m talking my daughters, even.”
Whereas many designers, such as Hernandez and McCollough, leave the classically sexy stuff—known as “understandable” in fashion parlance—in the showroom, Wang used her spring show to make a statement, proof that she knows how to do sexy clothes. As she puts it, “Back at the ranch, there are other things I’m more known for—the more loose, relaxed, draped work tops—but not on the runway.”
