Narciso Rodriguez - his is the best pant of the season - slim yet easy, long & lean!

Moschino Cheap & Chic - Consistently one of the BEST collections around - always feminine, modern with a touch of irony.


Doo.Ri - Stunning look.

Carolina Herrera - great look, just lose the shoes.

Calvin Klein - Francisco Costa makes amazing silhouettes. I would love to see the little dress with a dark leg and a flat shoe or a flat over the knee boot.

Burberry Prosum - I love this luxe wild child Brit look.

Best of Show #1 - Donna Karan
Donna's newest collection is as brilliant as her recent Resort collection (feminine, pink, fuschia gorgeousness). What ties the 2 together is their faithfulness to her singular roots. She is at her best when she references herself, not other designers. She infuses the clothes with structured softness and drapes, sleekness, modernity, ease and sensuality (smart sexy!) What I love here most are the long, languid, lean silhouettes that move around the body - they always have a structured anchor - the shoulder, the waist or a girl's great legs.

Best of Show #2 - Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang continues his winning streak of cool, modern, easy collections. What is so amazing about what he does is that the looks are amazing on the runway and the models could just walk right off of the runway and onto the street and they would look equally as fierce. You can clearly see an early 90's influence here (child, these young kids are referencing the 90's already!!!!!). There are clear references to Alaia, Helmut Lang and even Tom Ford when he was ripping up the fashion world with his early work at Gucci. My favorite is the smashing coral, assymetric draped day dress (dress of the season!!!) worn with sleek patent loafers - super cool, super modern and just plain super.
