Alice + Olivia Fall 2014 Show Channeled Noir With a Spooky Presentation

I am unabashed in my love for Stacey Bendet's label, Alice + Olivia. The brand is known for its stunning, charming dresses that appear to have been stolen from Zooey Deschanel's closet. This season's version of Zooey, however, might be a zombie from another era. The Fall 2014 presentation was held at New York City's McKittrick Hotel, home to immersive theater production Sleep No More. And the setting was perfect for the collection, full of eerie noir looks for leading ladies. Ready to be haunted? Take gander at our favorites from the show.

Marie Antoinette may be dead, but her hairstyle lived on at Alice + Olivia. Don’t let the headdress distract from the amazing tulle confection and studded belt below it.

An oversized fur lapel on this patterned jacket makes us almost believe we can pull off high-wasted trousers and a crop top.

Marilyn Monroe’s evil, brunette twin would rock the hell out of this pleated blue metallic version of the white subway grate dress.

The red roses on that sculptural gown have us longing to go for a subtly goth Snow White look on our next date. Who says floral print can’t be hot?
