VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards Designer of the Year nominee Miuccia Prada showed a strikingly beautiful collection. Sharp suits with narrow shoulders, defined waists and flowing skirts captured the spirit of the presentation, which was all about polished elegance and classic sophistication. Inspired by a '40s silhouette, Prada relied on an understated and tasteful color scheme: chocolate and gray dominated, with occasional dashes of yellow and red. For evening, Prada showed sexy velvet dresses with floral appliqués and a few silver beaded gowns that were absolute showstoppers. And, of course, you can always rely on Prada for some of the best accessories on the market: Her open-toed heels and geometric bags were an instant hit with the fashion crowd.
