Laura Smalls grew up around fashion. Her mother, Dolores De Vega, who recently appeared on She’s Got the Look, was a model in the 1950′s. Now, with her own children almost all full-grown, Smalls is returning to her first passion. She launched her eponymous collection yesterday at Benoit, a French bistro in midtown, with a little help from Vogue‘s André Leon Talley. Manolo Blahnik and Iradj Moini supplied the shoes and jewels, respectively, but even without their reflected glow, her well-made and well-priced dresses would shine on their own. Although she had a lot of color in her 30-look lineup, we say the next time you’re shopping for an anonymous little black dress, hers is a name to look out for.
