Prints and pants...

Shorts and swimsuits...

Cropped Jackets and hemlines...

Dresses with backless appeal...

De-Lovely De La Renta

Having met the lovely man myself, I understand what lies at the heart of his design ethos - enveloping grace with beauty.

Casual chic + volume and waist accentuation...

A vision in polkadots or safari siren...

Nicely nautical: High waisted trousers topped off with ruffles or how about the perfect white summer dress...

Elegant high waisted trouser ensembles: just the right amount skin gives this little ruffle trimmed top intelligent sex appeal or top them off with a pretty cardigan and ruffle front confection...

Black & White: Elaborate Lace or Balenciaga-esque Polkadot Pouf...

Black & White at the Races: a little White Dress Suit or Cocktail Dress...

Pretty Prints: Voluminous Cocktail or Statuesque Column...

Whether its the choice of fabrication or the masterful cut, the ever so slight edge of casualness in these evening dresses is what makes them so alluring...

CFDA Awards 06

Doo Ri Chung won Swarovski's Perry Ellis Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear, an extremely well deserved recipient - this designer really knows how to create an original and directional collection.

I thought Francisco Costa's Fall 06 collection for Calvin Klein was outstanding, Cathy Horyn however thought that he 'went too far from Klein's sportswear tradition...' - but playing safe isn't going to win awards is it, the CFDA obviously approve of his injection of excitement into the label, they awarded him 2006 Womenswear Designer of the Year:

The International Award went to one of the most beautiful men in the world - Olivier Theyskens for his work at Rochas, photographed here offsetting La Wintour's majesty with his innocent glow :)

Master Photographer Bruce Weber was honored with the Eugenia Sheppard Award for Fashion Journalism, pictured here with another Legend - John (YSL suits love this man):
