New York - Spring/Summer 2007

Alexandre Herchcovitch - An unsurprising combination of super skinny legs and pillowcase torsos. The skinny legs come in the form of super tight knee high boots or super skinny pants. The surprising parts are the unappealing primary-colored-and-too-busy prints and LaToya Jackson-worthy captains' hats (IN THE SAME PRINTS).

As horrible as it seems, I'm oddly attracted to the skinny overalls. Then again, I have a secret passion for skin-tight jumpsuits.

Alice Roi - Butter yellow, black, khaki, and cream separates, a little Prada nerd-chic, and a little disco slink. Skinny highwaisted leggings or saggy wide-legged trousers, platform black ankle boots. Basically, what we were expecting to see, just in a simple and pretty manner and not too uglied up.

Costello Tagliapietra - Everything belted! Wearable dresses that are loose fitting and textured to provide ample camouflage. Perhaps a bit too vintage looking in an 80s-not-good-way.

Diane von Furstenberg - Easy and sexy as always. She can do the pillowcase proportions, but somehow pull off sex appeal too. Dramatic and happiness-bringing color combinations and prints. I love that pink. 60s prints, grecian gowns, 80s hard-edged glamour, bubble skirts, 50s beach picnic dresses. Love it.

that poor girl in the purple Costello dress is suffering from some horrible static cling. I think those graffiti knee boots would give me nightmares(blah!)
