OCMA Nordstoms Fall 2012 Designer Preview

The Orange County Museum of Art had their annual Fashion Show featuring the new season of designer lines from Nordstroms at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel.  Orange County fashionistas and socialites enjoyed drinks and hors d'oeurves before seeing the 2012 Fall line from Gucci, Missoni, Mary Katrantzou, Michael Kors, Azzedine Alaia, Marc Jacobs, Emilio Pucci, Donna Karan, Herve Leger, Akris, Erdem, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino.

Iodine dress from Michael Nusskern in Fashion Island.
Hermes purple leather bracelets.
Jessica Grant lizard wrap bracelet.
HRH glossy ombre bracelet worn as a necklace.

Love the "fish" detailing of the dress

HRH glossy ombre bracelet worn as a necklace and peek-a-boo bra add fun detail to beachy waves

The bead work of the bodice is stunning!


Reminds me of Mad Men

Double dog dare you to wear this sweater this way in OC...  ;)

Love the bejeweled headbands

Intricate jacket detailing and hat so chic

Love everything about this except for the orange eye shadow...

OCMA, tucked away near Fashion Island in Newport Beach, celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, and in that time, has come to be known as one of the most respected contemporary modern art museums in Southern California.  They continually manage to surprise me with the quality of their exhibitions, with Jack Goldstein x 10,000, an American artist's retrospective during the 1970's and 1980's, being shown until September 9th.  Admission is only $12, although 2nd Sundays of every month are free.
