Padma Lakshmi and Susan Sarandon Love Them Some Costello Tagliapietra
Robert Tagliapietra and Jeffrey Costello
Fashion's bearded partners in crime have done it again. The former CFDA honorees pulled out all the stops for another stunning presentation of all that they do best.
It's a good sign when your front row seats some of the most beautiful, accomplished women on earth.
Padma Lakshmi and Susan Sarandon
One: Padma Lakshmi, Renaissance woman (cookbook author, actress, model, television host and friend of Paper), who dished that the pair "make clothes truly perfect for me. They can really do no wrong in my eyes."
Two: Susan Sarandon, Academy Award-winning actress and activist, who said similarly that the two "envision real women in their clothes."
Leigh LezarkThrow in some New York socialistas, Leigh Lezark and Sophia Lamar, and you have Tagliapietra's following, which only seems to widen by the season. Is it their practicality? Their wanna-squeeze-'em teddy bear image? All that and the fact that their latest collection brought together beautiful tones of maroon, violet, and mustard, offset by muted neutral silks, along with updated takes on the duo's ever-present wrap dress. Ultra-wearable, especially for the modern, mature woman, they've managed to find harmony in designing decadent clothes for the everyday.
