She calls it a "walking dress" but this voluminous dress, well jumpsuit really, that tapers down into culottes by Cynthia Rowley reminds us of a high-class, day Snuggie. It makes sense really -- the whole collection was a study in shapes and colors inspired by the Cubist era in art.

Still puzzling though were Cynthia Rowley's bra-and-tap-pant-clad models that repetitively dashed across the show's backdrop. Were these looks a nod to the copious sketches artists like Picasso did before their final works? A veiled announcement of a new lingerie line? Or a reflection of what Rowley, the mother of two young girls, goes through each morning?
