Mercedes Benz Fashion Week - Miami Swim 2008: Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson set the scene for her Miami Swim 2008 fashion show by opening with a bikini that appeared to have been inspired by the mini shorts she wore as Daisy Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard. The show was filled with lighthearted pieces as the pop star sat in the front row watching her pieces strut down the catwalk. The summer 2008 collection was sexy and fun, with bright colours, stripes, polka dots and bright floral prints. According to the press releases there was three distinct styles: All American Girl, Boho Girl, and Retro Hawaiian girl.
Check out the video from the show below. I must admit it was a little out of the ordinary to see Jessica perched in the front row (with her hairdresser Ken Paves - as reported by Electric Blogerella who was in the tent) and not backstage fussing about her designs like a designer would. No word on the stockists and price points yet though, it should be interesting since this is a celebrity clothing collection.
What do you think of the show? Is there anything you would wear?
