Last week, Helen Mirren hit it out of the park at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards in a curve-hugging red gown from Escada, effectively stealing the spotlight from starlets half her age. The eveningwear in the label's new pre-fall collection looked better than ever. Dame Mirren would look smashing in look twenty-two, with its embellished sheer bodice and floor-scraping Yves Klein-blue skirt. Ditto goes for the long-sleeve number with metallic embroidery on see-through tulle. Daytime highlights included a lightweight tweed car coat, as well as several jacquard pieces featuring a photo print of a greenhouse atrium in Paris. Digital prints are nothing new to avid fashion followers, but these were a step forward for the brand and will make a modern addition to the Escada customer's wardrobe.
