Summary: While Charlotte Ronson's collection didn't reflect my own personal style, I did enjoy a few of the looks she sent down the runway. With the exception of the cut-outs on most of the clothes, of course. I took pleasure in the caged booties strutting down the runway and I'm glad to see they are back again for fall. It was apparent that Ronson once again pulled inspiration from the 70's eclectic styles we all love. Floral-patterned silks peeped on the runway, but leather undoubtedly stole the show. The softness of the florals, lace, ruffles and bows contrasted well with the hard edge of the leather and gold hardware details. Pretty, yet rock and roll at the same time.
