When I first saw Jason Wu's Spring 2013 collection, my immediate thought was a punk rocker or a greaser marrying into the royal family. His collection was basically a wardrobe from a girl power Cinderella story movies, something like The Princess Diaries or A Cinderella Story or What A Girl Wants. He told a much more honest, more raw Cinderella story, one where Cinderella has to make her own dress!
Those Jason Wu gowns are probably unimaginably expensive, and yet they look very honest, do-it-yourself Cinderella where I can take my ballet leotard, a belt, and some tulle. No matter what the feminists say, Cinderella seems like a great story to live. Fashion makes fantasy so delightfully real. If Jason Wu says you can be a punk rock Cinderella, than why not?
What a great start to Fashion Week! It's like that time in What A Girl Wants when Daphne cuts up the dress her evil stepsister gave her!
