DESIGNER: Alexander Wang

THE VIBE: Very sexy high school jock with a touch of military

BEST LOOKS: Sweatshirt dress with leather shoulders; striped sweaters with sheer stripes; khaki skirt with leather insets

ACCESSORIES: Black and leopard-print peep-toe zip-up booties; gray knee-socks only a leggy schoolgirl could love; formidable sense of cool

WHO WAS THERE: Rachel McAdams, Anna Wintour

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Alexander Wang is one of the critics' darlings, creating collections that often portend where fashion will go. While we doubt many women will want to look like they just left football practice or are about to ship out to a war (via a 1940s time machine), you can bet the gray sweatshirt fabric, khaki military elements and leather paneling will start showing up in more subtle ways next year if not before. Definitely love the idea of classic, salt-of-the-earth basics and this fresh interpretation.
