Prabal Gurung: Rated PG


I had the pleasure of meeting Prabal Gurung when he visited San Francisco in a few years ago. The San Francisco Chronicle quoted me saying, "These are clothes with substance", which still stands. He does not like bimbos and he is not interested in dressing them. He designs for a thinking man's sex symbol. His designs are not exactly PG but they are definitely not X-rated. 

Yaya Decosta was attending a TV festival in Monte Carlo that she wanted to be dressed for. She is a star on the popular NBC drama called  Chicago Med. Yaya's beautiful angelic face is hard to miss as nurse April Sexton. The show is a fast paced medical drama that reminds me of the ER TV series. After I called in a bunch of things, Yaya decided on a Prabal Gurung double faced silk tunic that she wore as a dress with long flowing sleeves. Turns out she was unable to go to Monte Carlo but she had a friend shoot a video of her in the dress that was fantastic. These stills of the video give you a glimpse of the ethereal quality of the dress. Thanks Prabal!
