From the golden knits at Azzedine Alaia to the bold tiers at Derek Lam, this season's dress demands presence, drama, and more particularly, form. Though reminiscent of Old Hollywood starlets, there is nothing antiquated about these full-formed dresses. Constructed in every type of fabric from bandage to lightweight knit, to styles that range from retro to even futuristic, there is a style for every type of girl. Embrace the female shape by hunting for this season's best fit-and-flared frock.
