Designer: Hervé Léger

Inspiration: The Desert

Top Looks: Indigo dyed and tied bandage dress, Shredded patchwork jean dress, Stiff denim oversize motorcycle jacket, Rope-corded bustier (yay Hervé separates!)

Accessories:
Towering cork sandal booties

Who was there:
Hilary Duff, Amanda Bynes, Leigh Lezark, and a full roster of socials, including Lauren Remington-Platt, Zani Gugelman, and Lydia Fenet -- all sporting the house's signature bandage dresses, of course.

What we thought:
Hervé Léger owns the bandage dress, which puts designer Max Azria in a tight spot, so to speak, in terms of delivering something new every fashion week. Well, this season was not a problem. In a dusty palette and with distressed and textured fabrics, Azria made netted, knotted, knitted, bleached, patch-worked dresses and separates (breakthrough!) for girls who dress to kill. Stylist Camilla Nickerson's hand was evident in the fashion-warrior feel of the show. There was a fierce French vibe, with hints of both Givenchy and Balenciaga in the deconstructed surfaces and tight lean shapes.
