NEW YORK — Sometimes a girl wants a little bit of edge, and sometimes she prefers something girly. And she can have it both ways this resort. The magic is in the mix at Christian Dior, where John Galliano threw together elements of the exotic with a dose of his signature extravagance. Just back from three weeks in India, he brought with him lots of luxury by way of rich color, sari prints, metallic embroidery and even a few jangling anklets to complete the image. Meanwhile, Vera Wang opted for a softer look, whipping the most delicate fabrics — tulle, georgette or crepe — into pale, body-skimming frocks. She used a light touch with details, adding contrasting grosgrain ribbons at the waist or hand-sewn appliqués and microbeading at hemlines.
