When you take apart the layers in this fantastically complex collection by London wunderkind J.W. Anderson, you're left with some seriously covetable pieces. In this case, a shirt dress with a racing edge, that's a little bit Judy Jetson and a little bit mod. Not to mention, the studded pants underneath, that inspire us to brave straight-legged white leather....

So far this season we've seen a ton of shirts under dresses, or dresses over polos. But only Simone Rocha could take something as fine as this tulle, drape it over something as heavy as tweed (another trend for winter!) and make it look light, airy and oddly wearable.

Gareth Pugh

Call us patriotic, but something about this look harkens back to the days when politicians really knew how to dress. Perhaps Gareth Pugh feels the same, as this look is so far removed from his usual fare, we were nearly more shocked by this than the fact that some of his models were wearing Hannibal masks.

Markus Lupfer

How cool is this girl? Just one look at her and it's pretty clear: She's winning at life.

Holly Fulton

Can we declare Holly Fulton the winner of "Most Innovative Use of Shearling?" It's hard to tell in this picture, but the softly constructed folds around the collar made incredibly light work of one of the toughest fabrics. In a season where we've seen countless sheepskin coats already, Fulton's were a novel twist, and breath of fresh air.
