Today's Must Read

Anthony Vaccarello's debut at Saint Laurent will surely be received as either "love it" or "hate it" — with virtually no middle-ground reactions. Same case for the dramatic ear jewelry on several models: the first, an ear climber (why didn't they think of that before?) and the next, below-the-shoulder-grazing fringe earrings, shown here in red popping against a teal one-shoulder dress. While leather goods are strong for the house, the designer kept things simple with the shoes — and showed nary a bag. It will be interesting to see where the designer takes those categories.
