By now, Lhuillier has proved that she's more than just gowns. Her daywear is always considered and restrained, and she extends a level of handicraft to her pieces that makes even a romper feel like an occasion. But she's got major game when it comes to gowns, and this season was no exception. Still, the best evening look today was actually a silk linen gazar bandeau in hot pink, worn with a very full draped ball skirt in persimmon. A sliver of skin appeared beneath the bandeau and above the skirt's high waist. Sexy and super-sophisticated, it would kill on the red carpet. A panoply of gorgeous dresses followed—some beaded, some printed, one covered entirely in quivering organza flowers—but nothing quite matched that look for its supreme simplicity. Starlets, queue up.
