A few days before his fall 2013 show, Jason Wu told WWD that he "wanted to loop back to what I started on, the very thing I do, which is beautiful, very feminine clothes." While his feminine signature was certainly apparent in his latest collection, it also had an edge, something the designer has been steadily adding to his oeuvre in past seasons. Marked with sharp tailoring, severe necklines, and opulent outerwear, the looks that opened the show had a powerful, don't-mess-with-me attitude despite the flirty pleated skirts. Some of the strongest looks included a fantastic lace print trench coat, a high-waisted pant in the same print paired with a sweater with sheer horizontal insets, and a metallic snakeskin sweatshirt with a matching A-line skirt. For night, point d'esprit gowns worn over slim trousers offered a chic alternative to traditional eveningwear, but the stars of the finale were the classically beautiful, draped gowns. As First Lady Michelle Obama proved at both of her husband's inaugurations, no one does gorgeous like Jason Wu. See the complete collection here.
