Guo Jingjing, the flawless Chinese diver who has won more medals in her sport than any other woman in Olympic history, was Sari Gueron’s muse for Spring. Having logged more than a few hours watching the Summer Games, the designer plunged into a more fitted, athletic silhouette for a change. “It’s sexier for me,” she said.
Tanks and slips with Speedo-like racerbacks served as the foundation over which delicate lace tops and silk dresses were worn. A lace tank dress in fuchsia over one such tight black slip would look right on someone like Joy Bryant, who sat in the front row, for a night out. For day, Gueron made the most of a vintage leaf-and-berry print in muted shades of turquoise and dark pink. It turned up on slouchy shorts, but looked best on a one-shoulder cocktail dress with graphic appeal.
