The glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age inspired Jill Stuart to create a richly detailed and elegant Spring 2013 collection. There was no shortage of options for the red carpet in this lineup: sheer dresses with flower appliqués offered a timeless elegance, while a series of silk brocades provided a luxurious sheen. One floor-length gown was covered strap-to-hem in sequins; elsewhere, a sparkly bra peeked out from behind a silk dress in cream. But for all this collection's evening-hours opulence, it had some daytime appeal, too: three very feminine meditations on a safari jacket (one jumpsuit, one trench, and one coat) gave Stuart's woman an extra layer of defense against Spring's chilly winds.
