Jason Wu might have just outdone himself. Inspired by the legendary photographer Robert Polidori’s three-volume set ‘Parcours Museologique Revisite’ – chronicling the 25 year restoration of Versailles, young designer sent down a collection that was all about sheer opulence. If the gold leaf that decorated the models’ hair wasn’t indication, than perhaps that gilded Klimtian dress on Joan Smalls will hit the message home.
