Prada's Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which showed in Milan last September, has been all over the red carpet. Fourteen-year-old True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld wore a full length version of one of Miuccia's standout pieces: the orange, pink and black gown to the SAG awards, inspiring Vogue's Andre Leon Talley to call her the 'best dressed of the night' insisting 'she didn't try too hard.'Magazine editors seem to agree as the gown has been earning mileage traveling from Europe to Asia to North America and back, gracing the covers of Harper's Bazaar Singapore February 2011, Elle Magazine April 2011, Harper's Bazaar UK July 2011, Flare May 2011, Elle BelgiÃ«'s May 2011 issue, InStyle UK June 2011, on everyone from Claudia Schiffer to Amanda Seyfried. Even funny girl Tina Fey tried on the striped dress in InStyle and as part of an editorial in Harper's Bazaar Korea.See more by clicking over to our friends at StyleList!
There were plenty of neutrals and army khaki on the spring runway to get your closet filled with basics. But if you're looking to add a little punch to your wardrobe, the trend for you is spring's bright prints. This season there was everything from little liberty prints to large tropical prints, but what really stood out is the psychedelic florals shown at Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Marni. Flower prints got some cool factor by going trippy and acid laced leaving the florals barely recognizable. While it's still breezy out, throw on a printed dress with black tights for a girly, yet futurist feel. For an extra twist, try DKNY's garden romper in a dizzying sequin floral print. Later in the summer, hit the beach in an extra large floral bandeau bikini, and hit the town in Single€™s watercolor printed strapless dress. Whatever you choose, it's sure to leave a dizzying impression. Check out the SLIDESHOW to see more psychedelic floral prints.
