On the Scene + Show Review: Michael Costello Fall 2014
By Claire

The crush of people at last night’s Michael Costello show was only a slight indication of The Project Runway Alum’s already risen star. Though he’s been a favorite of Fashion Bomb celebs for quite a few awards seasons, the world truly started to take notice of his talent when Beyoncé wore one of his delightfully sheer gowns to the 2013 Grammy’s.

It seemed as if his Fall 2014 collection used Bey’s off white, floral embroidered gown as a jumping off point. Floor length stunners in ivory and off white whisked down the runway, all sharing similar sheer fabrications and body conscious fits.

Inspired by wintertime in New York City, Costello played with scintillating sequins in silver and white, a nod to Empire State skyscrapers sprinkled with glittery snow.

He ended his showing with a series of punchy red numbers in his signature fishtail silhouettes. He also showed his dexterity with draping, using flowing fabrics on wind catching gowns.

The Costello customer is thin, gorgeous, and unafraid to titillate in a slightly provocative frock. One of his biggest clients, Lilly Ghalachi from Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset came to town just for the show. About his designs, she said, “He makes sexy dresses that are so feminine and classy all at the same time. My dress is basically see through, but I don’t feel inappropriate. I don’t feel like it’s too much, even though it’s very provocative and very revealing. I love that he can capture that essence of sex while keeping it classy.”

Costello simply knows his customer and gives her what she wants!
After the show, I took a few pix of celebs in attendance:

    You guys are miserable

    Nothing new, groundbreaking or inspiring here. Prom couture at best. @Lily, I guess it’s classy to show FAKE boobs not real ones.

  7. Bhud says:

    only “bawse” I see on here is you Claire… you’re gonna be super famous real soon and we’ll all be here to say “told ya so”

  8. DRbeauty says:

    Claire looks great in an open neckline!

    The only good thing I see here is the diversity of his models.

  12. Liyah_Pearl says:

    I think his dresses show much better on the red carpet than they do here. The blue Costello gown that Rocsi Diaz wore and the Beyonce Gown looked amazing on the red carpet. I’m sure this collection will as well.

  13. Mary says:

    The only pieces that stood out to me were the red frock with draped sleeves and the sequence silver gown.
    I think he could have taken a more practical approach with the collection. But, if he has the clientele to fill those orders and maintain a business, I am not upset with him. I wouldn’t be one to buy one of his gowns( I don’t have a special place to wear any of this) but I guess celebrity clients is where he aims to make his mark in the fashion industry.
    Business wise, it’s a sound move initially. But, once you’re hot in Hollywood you can count the months until you’re the next. I would advise a more diverse market strategy, but it’s what your vision is about.

  14. T1K says:

    Is that a nippie I see??

  15. jeda says:

    That Shah girl looks a mess

  16. Anonymous says:

    Agreed with Bhud. Claire, you stand out!

  17. Brandi says:

    Really showing aereola & almost a nipple is not too much? Again, I’m so sick of seeing these people’s underwear & even worse body parts that are not acceptable for showing in American public. PLEASE PUT SOME CLOTHES ON!

  18. Nakia P says:

    I agree with BHud the only Bawse I see is you Claire.. WERK

  19. Crystal says:

    Nene’s nose looks like a little dingaling…..not good Nene!!!!
