If you suffer from pediophobia, you may despise Marc Jacob's Spring collection. A mix of harlequin, geisha, and cabaret cutie, ultimately, the theatric collection manifested like a melange of stern-faced dolls in high-fashion fixings. An abundance of ruffles, sometimes completely covering a frock, is over-the-top femme. Beading, layering, florals and plaids, and inside-out corsetry gave way to a complex collection. The one steady, and no doubt sell-worthy, aspect: outerwear. Marc has a sharp scissor when it comes to military coats and crisp jackets; these brought the fantasy back to reality. In addition, navy pinstripe got the ruffle treatment, giving way to nuanced tailoring. The drippy gowns aren't the most dreamy, but everything else is imagination gone gaga. Speaking of, Lady Gaga and Madonna were famous front rowers, and Perez Hilton was present. Always a surprise or two at MJ . . .

Upon entering the Donna Karan venue, you were put into a Zen state by loud, yet soothing, Annie Lennox music. My Zen was mildly interrupted by Milla Jovovich, in an awesome striped dress, who sat in the front row with Rachel Zoe and Elle's Joe Zee. These three were very chummy, cozy. But once the lights went down, the Zen returned. A Spring collection, as Donna's notes put it, "Inspired by the power of the elements — the sky, water, wind, sand, earth, and fire."
Form-fitting crinkled pumice linen jackets and skirts gave way to blush-colored viscose stretch-matte jersey dresses and separates. A sky-blue gauze top and slip skirt were incredibly — sexy — sheer, light, and lovely. Fire was exemplified through fire coral shells, jackets, sleek pants, and the popular "envelope dress" — Karan made an airy envelope dress in almost every color. I wasn't keen on the hats, they distracted from the ingenuity of the clothes, but the teetering wedges and rubberized belts caught some complimentary looks. The white-jersey evening dress was unreal, and the fire-coral one (pictured) sent my heart a flutter.
