For the past few season, Jason Wu's woman has been one tough dame, all corsets and lipstick and aggressive tailoring. This season, however, she seems to be mellowing: easy, almost liquid silhouettes, soft fabrics and subtle sequins had us longing for a calendar of back-to-back parties and galas to justify a wardrobe stocked with his latest creations.

There was an unselfconscious cool in Wu's styling this season, perhaps best demonstrated in this sheer sequined slip dress topped with an oversized trench.

Even the casual daywear, like a silky beach tunic and laced-up bandeau suit, looked soft and faintly angelic.

Speaking of angels, model Karlie Kloss floated down off her cloud onto the runway in one of Wu's most spectacular evening gowns to date: a slinky mermaid silhouette that finished in seafoam froth of ruffles.

Sporty daywear added street-readiness into the mix. Here, a sheer-bodiced dress with pockets and a front zip.

Wu couldn't have asked for a better leading lady for the collection than Karen Elson, who wore a soft, champagne-sequin slip dress with a '90s inspired silhouette.

All of Wu's outerwear had an oversized, borrowed-from-the-boys fit, which worked well in coats but registered slightly sloppy on this pale blue short suit.

The black slip dresses with lace inserts will surely get a lot of play on the red carpet as we head into the heavy premiere season for fall's latest flicks.

Some of Wu's new dresses were best viewed from behind, like this soft turquoise lace number with a swooping drape that gathered at the back.
