Vera Wang's Fall 2014 New York Fashion Week Collection is a Gothic, Rebellious Win

Vera Wang is always pushing the boundaries of fashion a bit further than our wildest dreams could even take us (did you see the black wedding gowns from her Fall 2012 Collection?) but always with a spectacular vision in mind. For Fall 2014, the designer is leading us down a dark and edgy path — think Helena Bonham Carter and Rooney Mara — and we're not at all surprised that the result is a moody fairytale of a collection. Vera, you've done it again.
