This collection is Marc Jacobs's riff on Edie Sedgwick, and was praised everywhere. Tim Blanks wrote for that "the monochrome, amphetamine-sharp brilliance of the designer's vision cut a precise swathe through all the uncertain murk that swirls around pop culture right now." Times critic Cathy Horyn called it "sexy" and noted that Jacobs "has enormous feeling for what is contemporary."

So really, this jumpsuit is smart — The Look of critical acclaim.

7. These panty hose as pants.

That's right female pop singers — you've been wearing your panty hose on the wrong side of your underpants.

Also, the rainbow in this photo has to be the happiest accident. Thank you, Jeremy Scott.

You know you're a well-liked designer when it seems like all you're really missing are maracas, and people still say you "didn't fail to deliver real-life chic."
