Andrew Gn's name has been coming up more and more on the red carpets these days. Julianna Margulies struck the right note in a full-skirted black dress by the designer at the Golden Globes that made subtle use of gold embroidery at the shoulders and hem. Embroideries are a house specialty; it wouldn't be a Gn collection without them. His news for Pre-Fall was silhouette. The first was short and fitted, the second long and slightly flared. Of the two, the latter was more compelling. Midi skirts are looking right this season, and the belted safari jackets he paired them with were proportionally well-matched. The charcoal flannel suit, its skirt boasting a deep, seamed leather hem, looked especially smart. It was also nice to see Gn experiment with the more relaxed attitude of a zip-neck sweater and an appliquéd, below-the-knee skirt. That new mood carried over into a lovely two-piece evening look that combined an embellished poet sleeve blouse with a to-the-floor skirt. Among the gowns, the one that might catch a nominee's eye came in strapless, peplumed citrine brocade, its tiny waistline stitched in milky, iridescent stones.
