Pre-Fall Frocks

Darlings, a roundup of dresses from the Pre-Fall 2010 runway shows… Virtually all they have in common is their designation ~ styles range from sleeveless to strapless, patterned to solid, and long to short. If this preview is any indication of what the fall collections are going to look like, we will certainly have a vast variety of frocks from which to choose!
Runway coverage via style.com.
Alexander Wang – basic black at its best!
Burberry Prorsum – a sultry shade and chicly belted
Calvin Klein – ever the minimalist
Carolina Herrera - a preview of fabulous fall florals
Chanel – CC loves the long-sleeved mini
Diane von Furstenberg – fun and flirty
Donna Karan – bicolor bodaciousness
Elie Tahari – a strapless stunner
Jason Wu – elegantly draped
J. Mendel – arresting asymmetry!
Michael Kors – for the peplum princess
Narciso Rodriguez – a wine-hued winner
Nicole Miller – perfect patterns, as ever
Oscar de la Renta – a rare short-sleeved look
Pringle of Scotland – natty knits, naturally!
Thakoon – for those with a pattern predilection
Versace – edgy sport-inspired ensembles earn high praise from CC!
Zac Posen – get graphic!
