Halston's ever evolving and much anticipated makeover of recent seasons was presented in a mirrored room, as models lay down the fashion law (literally) in solid color frocks with plenty of structure. Zac Posen mixed tailored cuts with soft materials...right down to the furry shoes! Marc Jacobs gave us something to talk about with his clever runway presentation, featuring a fleet of models boxed up in paper...though in my opinion, the collection itself was drab and shapeless in shades of grey with calf length skirts and loose tops. My pick for today's Look du Jour comes instead from the mind of New York's own Donna Karan. Her collection of black, black and more black felt strong and city chic as usual - and while it may not be breaking new ground,. this look is a dramatic take on a classic pairing of white blouse and black pants.
