New for Gueron were pin-thin stovepipe pants that suggested she is just as talented a tailor as she is a dressmaker. They ought to be scooped up by edgier girls who've previously shied away from her feminine fare. Others who are looking for a fresh cocktail silhouette would do well to slip into her navy velvet trapeze dress, a seriously pretty version of what is shaping up to be one of the season's important cuts. Gueron's gowns have made the rounds at fashion-industry events. A red pleated silk gauze number with a black velvet sashalong with the show's closing look, a lace and pin-tucked cotton floor-skimmerhad just the right mix of youth and glamour to earn a starring role on Hollywood's red carpet.
