It may not have had the eccentric artist vibe of some of Fashion Week's other shows, but the looks at Jill Stuart were elegant without being fussy and wearable without appearing to casual. The '70s-inspired line incorporated all of the decade's usual suspects: wide-leg trousers, flowing dresses in earthy tones and bohemian patterns, and midi skirts galore. Backstage, models were treated to a combination of glowing, luminous skin, feline eyes, and a healthy, lip balm-induced pucker courtesy of Sephora's Aaron de May, a look further enhanced by gorgeous, touchable waves. So what were the top looks off Stuart's runway? Read on for the nine best looks from the designer's spring collection.
