Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and Gwyneth Paltrow (circa Great Expectations) served as this season's muses, inspiring relatively pared-down silhouettes. You could imagine either of those nineties golden girls in a curve-hugging navy camisole dress with a flouncy trumpet hemline. Ditto the crisp button-up paired with classic-fit jeans updated in metallic leather. Gordon mixed in signature pieces like high-waisted flared trousers that instantly slim and lengthen the legs, and also tapped into his customer's sexier side with an ivory tuxedo jacket (worn with nothing underneath), as well as a gown featuring hand-appliquéd rubber sequins and an on-trend sheer tulle maxi skirt.
