Looking for dazzle? Leave it to Dolce & Gabbana to supply a jolt of show-stopping glamour. Inspired by the Middle East, the duo's collection featured everything from gold tapestry-printed dresses to silver palazzo pants to glimmering, striped Lurex T-shirts. Even their interpretation of the current suit craze was appropriately glitzy: there were purple velvet knicker-and-jacket combos and three-piece corduroy riding ensembles with rhinestone-covered berets. How to top off the look? Try a patchwork shearling coat, a colorfully decorated fur or a shiny croc jacket with leopard-print lining and matching hat. If you need still more flash, you can always go for the hoop earrings, bright tights and flower-appliquéd shoes.
