    It's okay if you can't picture a water taxi decked out by a luxury label. Or, Anna Wintour on the other side of the East River. Because we have pics to prove it all went down in honor of Dior's robust resort '15 show yesterday evening. We say the show was robust, but what we really mean is that every part of the experience was larger-than-life. A massive space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard was built out to accommodate the A-list guests (and the other 900-or-so editors, bloggers, and buyers). And, the collection itself boasted an impressive 66 pieces. It wasn't the numbers, though, but the clothes that made the trek worth it for the likes of Rihanna, Allison Williams, and Marion Cotillard.

    After just two years, Raf Simons continues to define his Dior as one that's ladylike, yes, but also whimsical, wearable, and not afraid of color. Though a quartet of black-trouser looks opened the show and a quintet of black-heavy sophisticated evening dresses closed it, there was a fair amount of reds, lilacs, and yellows to keep the parade feeling fresh. In between, silhouettes favored angular necklines, high waists, and structured jackets. Large, swirled prints and stripes leant a modern-art edge to tunics, minidresses, and jagged-edged, ethereal skirts. Celebs sat court-side in looks from Dior seasons past, making it easy to imagine them in this latest cruise offering. But, we call dibs on the sheer, smoky purple, long-sleeved dress and the lace-paneled minis.

Miley Cyrus' Wardrobe, Decoded

It can be said that we first met Miley Cyrus when she chopped off her bun, broke up with Liam Hemsworth, and graced the world with the Bangerz album. But, meeting someone isn't the same as getting to know her, and our girl had a big ol' 21st year, asserting her identity on her world tour. And, who knows what's coming as read
