Lori Harvey Dazzles in a Crystal-Studded Crop Top and Maxi Skirt in NYC
Lori Harvey is deconstructing evening-wear ideals one high-profile event at a time. On Sept. 29, the model skipped the traditional cocktail dress and flowing gown in favour of look 54 from designer Riccardo Tisci’s Burberry fall/winter 2022 ready-to-wear collection. Harvey mingled with fellow celebrities – including Jodie Turner-Smith, Dua Lipa, Phoebe Dynevor, and more – at the Clooney Foundation For Justice Inaugural Albie Awards while quietly paying tribute to Tisci, who recently announced his departure from the fashion house after five years as chief creative officer.
Like Tisci’s full collection, Harvey’s outfit challenged traditional evening-wear norms, making her luxurious trench coat the focal point of the ensemble. “This collection was so special, I felt it was reintroducing what formal wear meant to him,” Harvey’s stylist, Elly Karamoh, wrote in an Instagram post, adding that he wanted to “honour [Tisci’s] genius” with the look. “He used his own cathedral and gothic codes and blended it all with the English house. Lori tonight , brought the vision to life and once again made the dream real.”
From the front, Harvey’s look was contemporary but elegant, casting a striking silhouette with the open trench layered over her low-rise maxi skirt and cropped quarter-zip, a subtle nod to the popular 2000s velour tracksuit. The jacket itself featured a high collar embellished with crystal studs that flowed into a panel on both sides of the button-up, stopping abruptly at Harvey’s waist to highlight the delicate white fabric of the coat. Like the underlying zip-up and matching skirt – which featured a sexy, knee-high back slit – Harvey’s sleeves were adorned with silver equestrian knights, Burberry’s logo.
Karamoh styled her outfit with white, pointed-toe pumps and crystal drop earrings embellished with oversize, white-ribbon bow ties. While we’ll always have our eyes open for the next evening-gown trend, Harvey’s tribute to Tisci has us ready for more trench-coat moments on the red carpet.
