  The much anticipated Lanvin 2011 fall/winter collection displayed oversized ruffles and fluttered paneling down the backs of dresses. Rarely seen were pants and outerwear. Alber Elbaz presented his newest collection showcased for Lanvin at Paris Fashion Week. On the runway, models' faces were draped by the wide-brim floppy hats popular for this season (see Behind Closet Doors page),  they strutted in 'no-longer' little black dresses embellished with enlarged metal hardware on the sleeves and around the neck. Traditional gowns, one-shoulder silk ensembles, and memorable flowy rainbow cocktail dresses in shades of red, fuchsia, and pink. Parts of this collection told a story of minimalism and other parts brought out mystery and hint of danger.

Layering- (pictured on the left: Richard Chai) Can't decide what to put onto today? A vest or a blazer? Why not wear the vest over the blazer? How about a skirt or pant? Why not wear the skirt over the pant? Crazy huh!?! Well that's what's going on on the runway. Whatever clothing combination you think of, there are three words in fashion . . . "GO FOR IT!". (pictured on the right: BCBG) Here's an old-fashioned tradition uncovered with new trends. Turning an elegant gown meant for special occasions can become wearable during the day with long-sleeve tops worn underneath. Turn the strappy heels to knee high boots and add a belt for a transition from night-time to day-wear. (pictured below: Steven Alan) Transition your favorite summer dress to fall-ready by layering a buttoned-down blouse underneath and a pair of tights. Now you have a completely new outfit ready for the fall.
