WHAT WE THOUGHT: Busy CFDA President and international glamazon Diane von Furstenberg marked the dawn of a new era, with Yvan Mispelaere taking the reins as new creative director. If DVF's final bow was any indication -- she walked arm in arm with her new leading man - the queen of the wrap dress is quite pleased with her new arrangement.

The show started with a brown jumpsuit featuring a white graphic print, followed by sporty hoodies and drawstring pants. Bold geometric prints were scattered throughout, notably on georgette wrap dresses and oversize tote bags. And, this being a goddess-y theme and all, a white one-shoulder gown was thrown in for good measure. The narrative wasn't totally cohesive, but DVF is a woman of the world, so her inspirations run deep.
