Again, the sea inspired a designer for Spring 2008, in this case it was Pamella Roland. America’s Cup – with its discreet opulence and undeniable style – served as muse for the designer, who showcased nautical inspired high-waisted sailor pants and bold striped tunics, alongside her always stunning day and evening dresses in various neutrals and a few bold colors, including red and orange, splashed in to add visual interest.
Hair for Pamella Roland – think long, WASP-y blonde and stick straight – was by Paul Labrecque while Laura Mercier‘s makeup team was led by Louis Soto, National Make Up Artist.
