Runway Monday: Carolina Herrera Daywear

A couple weeks ago we looked at some of the best gowns from Carolina Herrera's Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear, Pre-Fall 2010, Fall 2010 Ready-to Wear and Resort 2011 collections.  Now it's time to look at the day stuff, which is equally elegant:

 I'd love it if one of these summery looks could make an appearance before the warm weather runs out.

 All the orange we've seen lately on Mathilde and Máxima has me longing for another strong color instead.  How about some red touches to change things up a bit?

If we must continue with the orange something more like one of these looks would be preferable, no?  The first look on the left bears striking resemblance to the black and white print/orange combination Máxima's been wearing from NATAN, but I love how much more sophisticated it looks in the hands of a more talented designer.  Mathilde could take a note from the center model; orange shoes are a great accent on their own, just not so much with an entirely orange ensemble.  And if we must go full-on citrus, mixing up the textures as in the last outfit is a much more refined way to go.
