FASHION WEEK: Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear: Best Minis

Minis are so underrated, especially during Awards' season. But I think celebs should take a second look, at least in case of a business luncheon or potential club-hopping nights.

Derek Lam ][ Try to ignore the strips and focus on the bunched texture.

Edition by Georges Chakra ][ Detached-lace collar is beautifully gothic.

Generra ][ I don't do velvet. I loathe it. The feeling. The sheen. The weight. But these velvet ruffles would have me reconsidering.

Herve Leger ][ He may be known for his band-aid print, but something about this line is very geometrical. It makes it seem more like architecture.

Jill Stuart ][ Sweater dresses don't work well on every frame. But how can you resist this?

Lela Rose ][ This floral neutral mini is amplified by the lime green coat, making the normally neon color seem less gaudy. 

Marchesa ][ She really outdid herself this time around. The first mini is my favorite of all the designs of Fashion Week. It looks like the fitted blazer is bleeding into the tule layers--just amazing! Then there's the ruffles and feathers mini that mix innocence and elegance.

Oscar de la Renta ][ Folds, bows, fans--it's like fashion origami. The end result being cobalt sophistication!

Project Runway's Anthony (left and center) + Emilio (right) ][ I've always preferred 3D designs over films. I love embellishments that pop off the canvas, whether it's cascading down the torso or simply perched on the shoulders.

Rachel Roy ][ Tie-dye is never advised. Gradients, however, can be beautiful if done subtly. 

Twinkle by Wenlan ][ It's quite the print--nothing you'd find in nature. Even the sweater mini isn't your average structure and texture.
