In case you DON’T already know about structured-shoulder mastermind Sally LaPointe, she’s the gal who’s been supplying Lady Gaga with some of her most iconic ensembles as of late. Gaga has worn her structured pieces straight from the runway at least three times—the corpse bride black dress and veil from the CES show earlier this year, the sharp-shouldered mini from the Google livestream, and THAT to-die-for red suit jacket from Oprah’s last show ever. Sally LaPointe’s Spring 2012 show (only her third one!) proves that, once again, she’s the master of mixing super strong shoulders with romantic and flowy draping. Her geometric pieces were a mix of peach and gray prints with a few bright neon yellow pieces making their mark on the runway.

The beauty game was ultra anti-feminine (and done by zee famous Katy Perry makeup artist Kabuki!) and probbabbblly the most un-springy combo you can imagine—pale faces with black lipstick (Kanye would not approve) and tie-dyed black and white skull cap (or do-rag? We don’t judge). BUT, when we snuck backstage to talk to Ms. Sally herself, she said the looks were inspired by the Renwick Ruins (an abandoned smallpox hospital) on Roosevelt Island in NYC, and that she wanted to give off the feel of “haunted romanticism.” OOOHHH. Now we get it! See what other deets Sally spilled from her collection in the video below.
