This sparkly gown was a standout from Alessandro Michele's pink dream sequence of a runway show. We suspect it will get plenty of editorial and red-carpet play come spring.

Many looks from this Gucci collection felt fairy tale-like, and this one gave us Wendy from "Peter Pan" vibes for its child's nightgown-esque silhouette and baby-blue hue. The pink satin backpack — an ideal accessory for flying — was a nice modern touch.

The cold-shoulder trend won't die and I'm a sucker for anything that ties delicately into a bow.

I'm not sure who would actually wear a sheer black lace dress with trousers, but Bella Hadid does it extremely well.

No.21

Alessandro Dell’Acqua's cool No.21 girl is rethinking femininity these days — taking ownership of it rather than conforming to outdated ideas. This pink look, which pairs satin ruffles with a patchworked slip dress, may have traditionally girlie elements, but it's anything but traditional.

Purveyor of overtly sexy, brightly printed dresses Fausto Puglisi showed a lot of restraint with this look. The combination of two shades of pink (a color that continues to take over our lives) is surprisingly appealing and sophisticated.

Roberto Cavalli

Conversely, Peter Dundas showed literally no restraint in expressing his love for loud prints and a sexy, '70s-hippie aesthetic. This was easily the simplest look and as you can see there was a lot going on.
