has long been typecast as the good-girl designer, but today's show proved she has somewhat of a naughty streak, too. Inspired by Kim Basinger's character in L.A. Confidential
(who is oft referenced in fashion), Stuart's new collection channeled a certain faded Hollywood glamour with boudoir-ready pieces in a muted palette of champagne, black, and lipstick pink.
A satin bralet top and tap shorts set came topped with a cargo-pocket jacquard trench, for example, and a slouchy silk suit offered pajamalike ease—if you're into that trend still. While see-through lace nightgowns and cropped bustier tops with sheer organza sleeves and high, ruffled necklines seemed relatively sexy for Stuart, they were still utterly feminine and PG-13, in keeping with the label's customers. Meanwhile, disco-ball-sequin peplum tops and slinky tank gowns maintained the glam factor here.
