Summary: Guests to the Fall '11 Adrienne Vittadini runway show were in for a real treat. As a way to honor and embrace some of the most prominent faces in the past few decades of fashion, Vittadini's chose some of the very first Supermodels for his show, titled 'Modern Muses.' Sporting a breezy 13-piece collection of fall staples were none other than Carol Alt, Roshumba, Irina Pantaeva, Nikki Taylor, Pat Cleveland, Frederique van der Wal and the great Carmen Dell'Orefice. Each timeless beauty was resplendent in charcoal herringbone, granite tween and bright red knit. Standout pieces included a black boucle vest, a chain-detail crewneck sweater and a charcoal batwing poncho over a finely tailored tulip skirt. It was fun to see such a impressive lineup of women still "workin' it" on the runway. And while the collection as a whole may not have one of the most sensational of the season, it's presentation should ensure that it won't be forgotten anytime soon.
