Also confused by the styling, which is usually one of her strengths--those bulky boots with the tent-like dresses don't even look good on the models!
i have to agree...and even more now that i've seen the pics runner posted
*thanks for that runner....

i used to like her so much more, but every season it seems to get more and more watered down....
i don't know...something is definitely missing here...

although,I agree she's lost a sense of severity there's still something stunning in these clothes to me. These images fashionlove and runner posted(thanks to the both of you!)I love. The clothes are so immaculate.

I love the jumpsuit...it's very sweet. But those dresses and the blouses are brilliant....and an ever-so-present sense of detail which I've never seen alot of from her in the past is great.

The first pic is cute--the jumpsuit looks a lot better with the sweater. And I do like the ankle strap shoes.
Generally though, the proportions seem really strange--everything looks a little too big and long.
I usually like the anti-sexiness of an over the knee skirt....but here it looks almost dowdy.
I guess I am missing the mysteriousness that I associate with her earlier collections.
