Dressed to Kilt 2011 Will Showcase McQueen, Westwood, and More
When it comes to the United Kingdom, our attentions might currently be focused on a certain royal wedding. But in early April, fans of the land across the pond will get quite a fashion fix with Dressed to Kilt.
Sir Sean Connery’s annual Scottish fashion show will take place April 5 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and include lines like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, House of Holland, Meadham Kirchhoff, Holly Fulton, and Katherine Hooker (a Kate Middleton fave), as well as traditional Scottish brands Harris Tweed and Lochcarron of Scotland.
Of course, the real draw of the charity event is the models. While last year’s runway show brought out the likes of Mike Myers and Joan Jett, 2011’s lineup includes Johnny Weir, Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle, Kellie Pickler, Bethenny Frankel, Kyle MacLachlan, and Saskia Connery—the granddaughter of Sir Sean, who’ll make her catwalk début.
This year’s theme: Country Chic. Get your tartans ready!
