Typically the images everyone sees of a show are from the end of the runway, when a model briefly stops or turns in front of the pit of photogs. At the Nicole Miller spring-summer 2011 runway show, celebrities like Perrey Reeves, Cassie, Alison Brie, and Andre Balazs of Standard Hotels watched as a parade of silk georgette drifted down the runway, including many maxi skirts.
This isn't Nicole Miller's typical short, body-con fare for starlets, and although the show was livestreamed (and you can catch it again here), anyone who attends such a show will say that nothing beats seeing in person the floatiest of fabrics doing what it does best.
