It wasn’t so much a collection as a whole bunch of really beautiful beaded dresses. Naeem Khan has years of experience in eveningwear and the loyal customers, including First Lady Michelle Obama, to prove it, but there wasn’t a lick of continuity here. Looking for a glamorous caftan in an on-trend garden floral? He’s got it. A minimalist beaded column in ruby red? Yes siree. Golden goddess gown, retro Forties frock and pink ribboned princess poof? Check, check and check. When combined with the ear-splitting soundtrack led by Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams,” confusion was perhaps the only thing left to feel. Yes, they were gorgeous, but a point of view other than “I can do anything” would have been welcome.
