Halston Begrudgingly Acknowledges Spring With Drapey, Dull, Depressing Duds

Some consider Halston to be a "cursed" label. Halston died in 1990 of AIDS-related causes, and since then, the company has been through eight different owners and many designers. The collection shown yesterday, created by Marios Schwab? Hated it!

This dress is probably beautiful, but the model looks like she just received some really devastating news.

This is reminiscent of what Tom Ford did for Gucci about 10 years ago; Ford, as Kate Betts puts it in The Daily Beast, "stealthily co-opted Halston's DNA."

The percentage of people on whom this would look good is so minuscule it doesn't seem worth discussing.

Sure, if you're going to a party at the Skywalker house on Tattooine, by all means.

Well, at least someone liked it. Then again, Sarah Jessica Parker is the president and chief creative officer of Halston Heritage, the brand's secondary line.
