Reem Acra Fall 2013 Collection

Posted on February 22, 2013


Another collection that we would, if we were kings of the world, force lady stars to wear on the red carpet. Reem Acra’s fall 2013, inspired by photos Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama took of women in fishnet stockings, is darkly sexy and dramatic as hell. We’ll take any of this over the boring neutral dresses we see on the red carpet day after day. Gorgeous, head-turning looks.

  • Bottom row is perfection.

  • StellaZafella


    …that is all.

  • Sobaika

    Ooooh, the white shift with the black flower detail… sigh

    • BrooklynBomber

      Yes, that’s the one! Gorge!!

    • homofascist

      Agreed.  That and the first dress in the top row, with the red flowers on the black dress.  So gorgeous.  

    • Alyssa

      Love that one!

    • So much gorgeous.

    • MissAnnieRN

      If we are the same size, we can share it and split the cost.  Amazeballs.

  • Serious Noir Heroine stuff happening here. I love it all.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Fantastic, flattering, dramatic dresses for the most part. Some seem awkwardly draped, but they are few.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like the opening red/black dress, but mostly because I am completely over the sheer/illusion netting dress trend. The rest of the collection is lovely. I hope any lady celeb who wears these pieces will at least go for a bright earring. I’m bored with black dresses, even well done ones.

    • Alyssa

      I don’t like that one either, but mostly because it reminds me of Halle’s Oscar dress from years ago.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    I’m not fond of the one in the header, though. I thought we were past the whole boob-mildew, GIANT-SKIRT thing.

    • mellorcr

      Agreed!   Didn’t TLo just call something similar “fungal’?

  • Ms. Schmidt

    So much to love here but the 1st dress, 3rd row from bottom?  To die for.

    • Imasewsure

      That one got a WOW out of me too… subtle but beautiful. Hope the right starlet finds that one!!

    • My favorite too. How is it so understated yet attention-grabbing?

    • Shannan Cunniffe

      YES. I kept going back to that one. There’s a lotta gorgeous there, but that one takes the cake for me.

  • Imasewsure

    Wow… he even managed to add new draping/shaping without making it look cray… beautiful and interesting. YES to all of it…

  • SewingSiren

    I like the day looks (all three of them). The evening wear is starting to blur. But it seems that red embroidery or appliqué and sheer gloves might be a “thing’.

  • Ooh… these are beautiful. The gowns are divine. I hope we see some of these at the Oscar’s! I am fantasy shopping in my head now… 

  • EEKstl

    Wow, spectacular.  That draped and beaded short sleeved gown is a knockout.

  • BrooklynBomber

    LOOOVE the white w/ black flowers, 2nd from bottom right. Thunk!

    • Qitkat

      Sophisticated and pretty. It would look wonderful as a shorter dress also.

  • baxterbaby

    Patrick Nagel.

  • afabulous50


    EDIT: 1st dress – Anne Hathaway Oscars…

  • I wore Reem Acra for my wedding, and my life would be complete if I could wear here EVERY DAY! That gray coat in the fourth row is divine. Sigh*****

  • Wow, another collection with red and black, two colors that I really don’t like together.  But…pretty dresses

  • The red gown with the black overlay is SO BEAUTIFUL.

    • cowper

      I vote for that one too! Subtle shades of chinoiserie.

  • Annabelle Archer

    Cruella De Vil hits the town!  


  • crash1212

    Stunning. If we don’t see these on Sunday it’ll be a freakin’ crime against fashion.

  • alyce1213

    I utterly hate the first gown with the red chest fungus and the one in the last row with the black side chest fungus, but the rest is quite interesting.

    • kimmeister

      Middle gown, back row?  That one looks particularly awkward.

      • alyce1213

        It looks like it’s on backward. 

  • A lot of winners here. I love the plaid wrap-dress, 4th row right.

  • mjude

    wow.  i cant believe how many collections i have loved so far.  stunning

  • mmc2315


  • ankali

    Love the 1st look in the 6th row, all wet and slinky-looking. Evan Rachel Wood could rock it; actually, she could rock the whole collection.

  • Yuval Dinoor

    SO beautiful! The very first dress with the netted top is to die for, as is the white shift with black flowers 🙂

  • jmorino08

    Gorgeous from top to bottom! And thank you baby jesus for giving someone the sense to pair pretty clothes with pretty styling. 

  • Tatiana Luján

    The only dress I don’t like is the first one. The rest of this collection is amazing.

  • Trisha26

    Gorgeous – love the 3 B&W looks, second to the last panel.

  • NEED the clothes….and perhaps a lifestyle to justify them…..reminds me of Chris March. Goth Chic.

  • VicksieDo

    This is the best I’ve seen of the Fall 2013 lines.  AMAZING!!

  • Anniebet

    Pretty spectacular for the most part. The models actually look like their makeup artists don’t hate them! Bottom row, middle dress has such a wide expanse of see-through on the chest of that model that it looks like a miniature football field would fit. That dress needs bazooms and more fabric to cover them.

  • Zippypie

    It’s a shame that these are shown against a black background – I just can’t see the details of all the black.  Love the white gown with the black floral vines.

  • bertkeeter

    Great RED! Also like the black and white…strong combo!

  • libraangel

    BEAUTIFUL, except the one with the white splash of paint on it.

  • Drooling over all of it- as in my jaw has not snapped back up yet… and Reem Acra is amazing, in all they do, both in fashion and what they support, so I would gladly save my pennies to afford a piece, even if it’s just a zipper (but oh god those black, white, and floral pieces, or that bottom row OMFG)

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    GODDAMN!!! Beautiful!!!  I want all of this, please!

  • Oh my this is my lady jam. 

  • quiltrx

    Wow…this is totally giving me some much-needed LIFE today!

    Last two rows are absolute heaven.

  • pookiesmom

    Are there differently-sized models there, or is it just the clothes that make the models look curvier than usual? That’s not a criticism at all, I’d actually be excited if it were the former. 

    I think many of these looks would actually look fantastic on curvier women. I would LOVE to see Christina Hendricks in some of this.

  • jack mackenna

    the red and black dress in the first row and the two white dresses – lovely<3

  • MissAnnieRN

    All of this is gorgeous.  I love the grey wrap coat for myself.  I want to see the slinky black see-through-ish sparkly dress (6th row, left) on GOOP, Blunt, or even a curvy gal such as Vergara or Hayek.  I would love to see it in more colors.  It drips sex and class.

  • kategs

    The red gown with black overlay and belt, well, I’d kill for it.

  • modelobrasil

    Simply divine.. I want the black leather pencil dress!

  • Best collection of the season.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Want gray coat for mine own.  How to get it?  Whom to step over to obtain it?
