POURING ON THE GLAMOUR NEW YORK Enough with the recession. Americans need elegance. That seemed to be the wisdom put forth by the fashion designers who unveiled their fall ready to wear collections here last week. The thought was especially evident in the gown glamourama on the runways. The array of red carpet worthy creations was so decadent a celebrity stylist could almost have chosen winners for her Oscar nominated clients with her eyes closed. (Or at least without looking up from her BlackBerry.) We loved s ode to Orientalist art deco; s sublime craftsmanship; s exquisite embroidery; s goddess allure; Zang Toi s operatic drama; Rodarte s American prairie softness; divine disco moment; and the femme fatale mystique from , , Marchesa, and . , too, sent out more of his classic gowns than usual. International socialite , who attended Khan s show, could imagine his short, beaded bodice dress with feathers on pregnant , nominated for her role in Black Swan "She shouldn t have to negotiate a long dress," Cason Moncler Outlet Italia Thrash suggested. She also thought a silver gown with a scooped back would be perfect on , nominated for her role in Rabbit Hole "I ve never seen so many red carpet dresses on one runway in my life," Cason Thrash said. "There was something for everyone." (Thrash will attend the party Sunday in Los Angeles but hasn t yet decided what Fashion Moncler Women's Down Coats Red she ll wear. "I want to be comfortable but don t want a big long train," she said.) Though the collections offered plenty of opulent, big skirted ball gowns, a sleek, old Hollywood sensibility prevailed in trumpet silhouettes that slid down bodies like liquid gold and silver, floating freely below the knees with sexy confidence often slit in the front, dipping low in the back or with just one arm cloaked in a long sleeve. There were flashes of beaded fringe, too. Though they might be risky on the red carpet, exotic turbans inspired by the iconic French designer (who was inspired by the ) were attention getting as well. We also took note of stunning choker shoulder necklaces in a few collections, including Zang Toi s, where they reminded us of The Merry Widow Many designers are feeling the pull of Asia: Hollywood favorite Marchesa s collection included sumptuous looks fit for Chinese royalty. In this sophisticated environment, sequins suddenly seem so last season (unless they re gold and hand painted as Prabal Gurung Moncler K2 Down Vest Women Multiple Logo Blue s). The embellishments du jour include shimmering Swarovski crystals; French chantilly lace; elaborate, often beaded, embroidery; feathers; and miles of tulle. To go against the grain, a modern girl with a perfect figure might opt instead for a minimal gown studded with sexy gold hardware. Whether the stars who come out for the cameras Sunday will feel springlike and wear jewel tones or drape themselves in the blacks, silvers, golds and rich reds that created such drama on the fall runways remains to be seen. Color can transform and energize the spirit, Valvo writes in his new book, Dressed to Perfection The Art of Dressing for your Red Carpet Moments ($50, Rizzoli). "For a designer, it is an extremely powerful tool." He especially loves red "a color that speaks of mystery and danger, of seduction and love." Of course, not all will wear gowns by American designers. The recent European haute couture shows of Dior (with whom Portman has a relationship), Chanel, Valentino, Armani Priv and others could be an influence.

Practical luxury at French label Chanel PARIS Practical chic was the name of the game Tuesday at Chanel, which delivered classic suits embellished with snap on cuffs and collars that can be removed to dress the looks down. Jade green and baby girl pink added a welcome touch of color to the black looks and infused the French label s hallmark tweed jackets with an optimistic freshness. The jackets some cropped, some shimmering with intricate beadwork Moncler Men Black Red White 90% Of Wool Sweater were paired with short pencil skirts, A line dresses, cuffed trousers and long, flowing chiffon skirts. Accessories, like belts, flattop full brimmed hats, chunky rings and knit arm and leg warmers, figured prominently in the winter 2010 ready to wear collection. But the real stars of the show were the extravagant collars and cuffs. Made from accordion pleats, starchy lace, feathers and papery white flowers and adorned with contrasting black ribbons, they attached to the looks with a simple snap, said designer Karl Lagerfeld. "It s a kind of new jewelry," he told The Associated Press in a post show interview. "With one dress, you can have two lives, a business life and then Moncler Kids Jackets Vosges Baby Buttons Hooded Deep Red you can add all those things" for a dressier look. Removing them also cuts down on the need for and cost of dry cleaning, he said. Practicality Moncler Blue Jacket was also behind a handbag made of clear hard plastic, with special compartments for the essentials: the cell phone, sunglasses and, of course, the oversized bottle of Chanel No. 5 perfume. "Nothing is worse than the poor girls when they are there like they are looking in a garbage can trying to find their Blackberry," Lagerfeld said, adding that the bag, which sports Chanel s hallmark chain and leather strap, was also aimed at easing air travel by making clearing security a breeze. "Slumdog Millionaire" star Freida Pinto called the show "wonderful." Chanel "is never a letdown, it s always up there," said Pinto, who looked radiant in a white tweed dress by the label. Asked whether her sudden status as a global superstar had changed her style, the Mumbai, India native replied, "All I can say is that I ve cleaned up pretty well." Other front row guests at the mammoth show held beneath the steel and glass dome of Paris Grand Palais included models Kate Moss and Milla Jovovich and British singer Lily Allen.
