Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow stepped out in that Tom Ford white ensemble featuring a cape at The Oscars, I fell in love with them.
Then Lana Del Rey became the wicked witch to Gwyneth’s good at the MET Gala in a dark gothic Altuzzurra cape combo, and Fan Bing Bing followed suit in an Elie Saab Couture creation whilst attending a premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Katy Perry wowed in her Naeem Khan navy blue avec cape at the UNICEF Snowball in November, and supermodel Karolina Kurkova proved that an all Red Riding Hood look works amazingly well at the New York City Ballet Fall Gala wearing Valentino Couture as did Sarah Jessica Parker back in 2011 in Giambattista Valli Couture.
A cape just makes a look all glamourous and fairytale, and several designers showcasing their couture creations for the spring/summer 2013 season thought so too as it was capes galore on the runway.
I hope this feature filters down to the high street just like full length dresses did for winter last year. People are inspired by what they see on the red carpet, capes are a fabulous touch!
