Prabal Gurung's roster of regulars includes ladies on far ends of the style spectrum (Michelle Obama on one, Gaga on the other). For spring, Gurung looked back to the original bombshell, Marilyn Monroe, whose voluptuous silhouettes were given a lean, mean makeover.

This strapless silhouette may be pure Marilyn, but the details are all Prabal: a razor-sharp, off-the-shoulder strap adds edge, as do strips of beading on the skirt that form a glittery collage.
