MBFW: ACK! A Model Almost Went Down in a Gorgeous Gown at Noon By Noor!
Aside from the stumble, the spring/summer 2013 collection was glam and well-crafted.

Yesterday afternoon while you were getting the most out of your lunch break, Noon By Noor was blowing our minds with a gorgeous Spring/Summer 2013 Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week’s Lincoln Center site. Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and Haya Mohammed Al Khalifa, the Bahrani designers behind the label, wowed the crowd with vivacious oranges, muted peaches, a sprinkle of lime and a seemingly endless array of looks. The collection consisted of perfectly crafted structured suits (both pants and shorts), fab separates like yummy moto jackets, skirts and tops, and for your evening pleasure, extremely long and flowy dresses — so long that the model below almost took a tumble!
It looks like Angelina Jolie and her perfect legs better watch out because if Noon by Noor had their way, all of our thighs will be trending in their gowns! We noticed a few embellishments on some items that we aren’t usually fond of — beads and feathers, namely — but they were so beautiful and worked so well with the ensembles that we couldn’t help but sigh a little bit when we saw them.
Sadly, the view of the finale wasn’t the best, but you can see how the silk just flows down the runway:
Two familiar faces to look out for: India de Beaufort (British actress and singer-songwriter) and Olivia Palermo (MTV’s The City). Nicky Hilton also took in the show. Talk about star power!
