Betsey Johnson (below) didn't do much better with her resort collection. Black and pink taffeta and tulle reminded me of some 80's prom nightmare, and her pastel pieces looked like stuff you'd find in dusty windows of chinatown. Basic message to these designers? Stay away from cheap-looking fabrics! You are world-renowned designers; you know better.
My faves? Giambattista Valli's (below left) smart ruched jersey and tailored looks are retro and ladylike. I love how this grey-toned outfit has so much different texture. You can really have fun with your choice of shoes and bags. This look would also be flawless going from day to night. As you can tell, I love neutrals. J. Mendel's (below right) camel mini dress is sporty and sleek.
