Carlos Luna’s Spring 2013 Collection spoke of Roman royalty. Guilded gold heads topped off looks, completed by nose and ear jewelry dripping in their sheer luxury. The color palette was an elegant mix of lily white, turquoise, navy and coral. My favorite item was a cut-out navy and turquoise dress that was cut demurely at the knee. A dropped waist number was another favorite. Perfect for the woman who can’t quite manage the skin-tight items. A coral ankle skimming dress featured a deep V at the back but no suspicion of such from the front. Models’ featured slicked back locks with minimal makeup, that highlighted the gold head embellishments. Carlos used gold like icing on the cake, to top off a collection that emanates strength and power. This is a powerful collection, with more than a few red carpet worthy looks.
