Fashion News: Zac Posen Taps Supermodel Pat Cleveland for His Resort 2014 Collection
By Faith

The synergy between designers and supermodels is pretty important for a brand. Zac Posen tapped into that interaction with a mannequin who put her stamp on the fashion industry decades ago: Pat Cleveland.


The casting was intentional, placing Cleveland alongside her daughter Anna. Posen’s aim? To tear down the conventions of age that seem to be an obstacle in not only fashion, but the celebrity world in general.



The collection itself is all about femininity and romance from airy pleated chiffon to flirty florals playing on peplum and ruffle-detailed dresses.




My favorite designs offer a bit more structure, in true Zac Posen fashion. A blush pink peplum dress will look absolutely divine on the likes of Kerry Washington, while some of the mermaid silhouettes will be a shoo-in for Sofia Vergara.





The casting here is perfect. Zac Posen often chooses women of color for his runway shows which is always refreshing and it is great that he is now also aiming at a more mature age range: we all know socialites and ladies who lunch from all generations love his pieces. Clearly, Pat Cleveland hasn’t lost her edge one bit and can still work the camera better than girls decades younger.

    I love the concept behind the pictures. It’s time society stopped making aging something that is bad.

    How is using skinny and photoshopped older women tearing down the “conventions of age”? First of all, both of them look white. Second, her “age” has been photoshopped for filth; she even looks younger than Christy Turlingon, so I don’t think ed is sending out any “positive” message about age. Third, 99.999% of women in their 50s, 60s and 70s do not look like this and they shouldn’t be trying to. Depreciation of the human body is a natural thing but fashion only seems to “celebrate” older women only when they are skinny and young enough aka photoshop to pass as young women. That’s counter-productive and actually more toxic. Last but not least, their hair and expressions are a hot damn mess #BLOOP

    Her daughter looks so staged and pat so effortless. I think the daughter needs to exit stage

  17. ummok says:

    At anonymous@8:17 pm pat has always been shaped that way is that her fault? And yes she really does look like that, I have seen a recent picture of her. This lady looks good for her age! And yes women can look good at this age, its called eating healthy, exercising and taking good care of yourself. This is fashion or didn’t realize this?
