WHO WAS THERE: Editorial glitterati, Stephanie Pratt, Zac Posen, Serena Williams

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Vera Wang isn't afraid of a voluminous fold. Many of her Japanese-inspired creations featured extra fabric at the hip, at the shoulder, along the waist. Which made for a very editorial look - not surprising considering the theme was an over-the-top action flick. A certain loveliness made the clothes rather ethereal, especially the tulle layered one-shoulder minidresses in poppy spring colors with flowing trains. We could envision Uma Thurman wearing one while she annihilated an opponent and then promptly ran off to sip Champagne.
