Ralph Lauren was in an upbeat mood for Spring 2014, kicking off the show with a tomboy twist on mod in strictly black and white. Windowpane plaids, stripes, and florals all turned up in clean shapes with a focus on minis and sharp blazers. The next section of the show was as far from black and white as possible with deeply saturated, almost-neon primary colors. Evening was a continuation of the theme with emerald, vermillion, and cobalt all turning up in sweeping ballgown shapes, while a white leather moto jacket over a ruffled skirt looked particularly appealing. With a standing ovation from his family in the front row, the designer took to the runway to rousing applause from the packed crowd, including Jessica Alba.
