The Clothes: Peter Dundas continues to move away from the hippie/gypsy aesthetic he initially established for the brand. Dundas further expounded on the sexy, semi-sheer looks that he first introduced for Fall 2012, this time using sheer panels on the inside of pant legs and experimenting with embroidery on sheer pieces. A form-fitting black dress with sheer panels and cut-outs could have easily been from his Fall 2012 collection--a testament to how much of a hit the style was in the first place (a fact that was underscored by the number of women wearing iterations of it from last season). Along with these sleek looks (in either white, black, red or pale green), Dundas also showed a handful of abstract printed numbers--an homage to Pucci's 1972 Elisse print, modernized in a muted palette. There were also several Asian-inspired looks, including silk bomber jackets embroidered with tigers and dragons, kimono-esque dresses and Chinese jackets featuring traditional knot closures.

What the Line Sheet Said: A soaring, sober elegance. light as air...Touched with the quiet opulence of Indochina and the ease of summer, a softer subtleness slowly unfurls this season. The Pucci girl emerges with her strength on the inside and a fresh coat of serenity on the outside.

Hair and Makeup: Hair was long, sleek and straight and pulled into a half-up-half down 'do, which was held in place by a white carved ivory clip.

The Soundtrack: Mash-up of piano music, opera voice and pop music.

The Vibe: In a gorgeous, stately building with gilded wood work and painted ceilings.

The Front Row: Miley Cyrus
