September 11, 2007 New York
She opened with a trio of long sweeping coats, worn with matchstick-skinny jeans and trilbies angled just so. From there, she dabbled in daywear, showing fitted blazers, cropped to graze the hips, and a pair of body-loving dressesone with bracelet sleeves, the other boatnecked and sleeveless. Scott, of course, has made her reputation dressing celebrities for the red carpet, so eveningwear of a get-me-noticed sort was the bigger focus. Working in black, many shades of blue, and nothing else, she scored with a whippet-thin suit in allover sequins, a stretch-satin cocktail dress topped by a directional cape, and an hourglass gown that had a sweetheart neckline edged in netting and a cascade of tiered ruffles at the back.
Now in her fourth season and feeling confident, the designer mixed it up. A short lace dress and a sleek zip-front jumpsuit added a sexy, and refreshingly personal, rock 'n' roll edge. Credit Scott for ending fashion week on a positive note.
