RELEVANCE TO HOLLYWOOD: This collection has a lot of variables: stunning jackets with peplums and embroidery, slim pants, silky blouses, sleek sheath dresses with curves and keyholes, printed silk dresses – and every single piece is sexy, sleek, modern. Are we gushing? It's the ultimate womanly cuts with masculine military detail – fabulous tailoring in both wool and silks. We'd snag those dresses for Oscar parties – if we could! But since they won't be done for a while – stylists should be placing orders for Cannes. And Toronto. Somebody put dibs on that red and black fur FAST!

ACTRESSES WE COULD SEE IN IT: Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lawrence, Amanda Seyfried, Zoe Saldana, Claire Danes – Prabal's girls – and proud of it!
