This season, she wears pale shades of grey and white punctuated with blues and black. The signature bod-cons were more intricate than ever with metal hardware and appliqués woven in. Some looks had leather harnesses or Alia-esque wide belts with multiple buckles. Straps and necklines were varied and never boring. Drop waists and kick flares mixed up the snug silhouettes.
