Fashionista's March Madness tournament is down to the Elite Eight.

Fashionista's March Madness tournament is down to the Elite Eight.

Round One has wrapped up in New York, Milan, London, and Paris--now it's time to get elite.

We're kicking off the Elite Eight rounds today with New York, where we've got Marc Jacobs going head-to-head with the boys of Proenza Schouler, and Milan, where Dolce & Gabbana take on Prada.

This was another hotly contested matchup, with Marc Jacobs's going point-for-point with Proenza Schouler until the buzzer.

Jacobs got on the board pretty quickly for his winning combo of showmanship and luxury. As Lauren said, "He tapped into something we're all feeling: comfort dressing." Jack and Lazaro nailed shot after shot from women who wanted to wear every piece of their "forward-thinking" collection.

But in the end, Jacobs brought us the sun--kind of hard to beat.

Leah put it most simply when she said, "Prada: She's unstoppable."
