Leave it to Lanvin...

It's official. Alber Elbaz can do no wrong. For fall '08 the Lanvin designer delivered a downright beautiful collection (surprise, surprise) with looks that could literally be plucked right off the runway and put into real way ('my' real way, that's for sure!). In other words, completely wearable styles that don't require a break down piece by piece. My personal favorites? Elbaz's amazingly chic ribboned tops paired with slim knee-length skirts, glitzed-out gold cocktail dresses, and belted skirt suits and draped dresses--all perfectly balanced with decadent crystal necklaces and long leather gloves. By far, my favorite of the fall collections.

This is the lovely Soni. How cute does she look in her high-waisted pants and wrist full of bangles? Work it, girl.
