WHAT WE THOUGHT: Held in the gilded backdrop of the St. Regis hotel in midtown Manhattan, Wu staged his prettiest collection to date. His famous one-shoulder dresses (a favourite of you-know-who) were there in various hues: in gold faille cinched at the waist, in a silver mirrored foil, and in black with aqua beetle point stitching and Swarovski Crystallized threading.

Wu's daytime offerings were also impressive, although still highly luxurious. His kick-off piece was a peach suit was trimmed with tulle. Not one to produce coarse denim, his jean separates (which included a jumpsuit, cuffed shorts, and a cropped jacket) were made of silk tweed darling. But of course.
