Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 Runway Review

Someone get me an embroidered headpiece pronto! Headbands and various takes on the headband (think Germanic-influenced braids wrapped around the models' heads like we saw at Pucci and Fendi) have been shaping up to be a major beauty trend from New York to Milan and nowhere did it work better (at least for now), than at Dolce & Gabbana. The perfect complement to the 17th century Italian-inspired collection, this season's line-up, while rife with ornately woven gold, bum-grazing shorts, exposed undergarments, and weighty crystal accessories, never veered to a tacky place.

Lace and bustier tops were, per usual, prominent and often fashioned into knicker-exposing looks. Ruffles, leopard, and saturated floral prints all made cameos for a sexy take on 17th century Italian dress that, while often more editorial than fit for everyday wear, resulted in a beautiful collection.
