Grey Yellow Designer

The Label: The Texas native and Parson’s graduate has been designing girly but smart clothes with lots of embellishments—embroidery, piping, beading, and other trimming details—since she launched her collection in 1996. Popular among young socialites and celebrities, including First Daughters Jenna and Barbara Bush, Rose frequently juxtaposes fabrics in unusual ways—terry cloth with lace, for example—to give her classic feminine silhouettes something unexpected, and a more modern edge. She earned her chops working under Christian Francis Roth and Richard Tyler. The Look: The girl with the most cake. Pretty, frilly, sexy—and forever young.
