This outing was full of looks that MObama would approve of; a persimmon linen shift had over-the-top embroidery and an open back, while a heavily beaded, marigold number came beautifully draped for vintage appeal. Other looks were all over the place but still distinctly Khan. There was an impressionist floral-print silk caftan with grosgrain trim, and a seriously amazing "Cinco de Mayo" dress with an off-the-shoulder peasant bodice and a trailing, fitted skirt that used 26 different colored threads, took over 1,000 hours to create, and will only set you back around seven grand. It's all proof that Khan's business remains afloat for a reason in a difficult luxury market.
