As for the show itself, it hewed close to the agenda she established in her last two seasons here: party clothes that straddle the sexy-sweet divide. In the sexy camp were a taffeta baby-doll dress with pleats and a strapless point d'esprit gown. On the sweet side were rock star-skinny leather leggings and stretch jersey pants worn with a one-shoulder top fully covered in crystals; a puff-shouldered, belted satin tunic; and a fitted jacket with metallic frogging on its front.
One little black dress with a sculptural bow above a bare, low-cut back stood out from all the rest. Dinnigan's second task should be to take that frock back to the studio and study it. A collection full of pieces as clever and cute could get her noticed here.
