What a year Reem Acra has had, and it’s only mid-February. When Madonna wore the designer’s gown to the recent Golden Globes, the exposure thrust her into the fashion spotlight. Acra’s next big moment came at the end of her runway show, when out came the striking evening looks in black, gold and silver, featuring beaded graphic Deco patterns and revealing cutouts. There were beaded micro minis too; the black one with a mock turtleneck added real sex appeal. The sportswear’s leather jackets, trapunto-stitched coat and metallic tweed suits didn’t carry the same weight, but who cares? All eyes were on the gowns.
