Summary: Designer Michelle Smith's inspiration for her 'young-luxury' Milly Fall '10 collection was from the Nouvelle Vague films of Jane-Luc Godard. In her mind it was sixties French city chic meets modern sensibility. In mind it was the perfect collection for my 14 year-old daughter…assuming I had one and an unlimited budget. The looks consisted of ultra mini skirts, cropped wool jackets, rosette ruffles and distracting mismatched dayglow bright tights. Would I wear any of this collection? No. I'm too old. But would I appreciate it on a Gossip Girl? You bet.

    Those are what we called fashion. Actually, I am fat and big and I think those are not for me but I love watching skinny girls wearing those pretty dresses.
