The updated version of Melrose Place is launching this fall promising as much soapy intrigue as the original. One of the stars, Ashlee Simpson Wentz was recently spotted in the striking outfit above featuring the high-waisted crown skirt by David Alexander. The skirt is almost reminiscent of the short skirts worn by Heather Locklear in the original but with an updated edge courtesy of leather details which highlight the curves of the female body. The skirt is available in stingray or gold leather and sells for $400.
Alexander himself could practically be a character on the show. The young designer (he's just 24) is the son of a former Dallas Cowboy cheerleader and beauty queen. Alexander went pre-law before deciding to follow his passion for fashion studying at FIDM and the Parsons New School of Design in New York City. He has already commanded young Hollywood's attention by dressing Khloe Kardashian, Vanessa Minillo and Britney Spears. We'll be seeing a lot more from him in the future.
