Last night's spring 2013 presentation reinforced the things that Jason Wu is supreme at: impeccable tailoring, celebrating the female form, and creating evening looks straight out of childhood (and adult!) fairytale fantasies. True, he may not be the subtlest when it comes to influences. The Helmut Newton and Lillian Bassman themes were very present: A majorly sexy Le Smoking, Bassman's black-and-white photography prints — and it was hard to see the La Perla lingerie collaborations, body harnesses, and leather-'n-lace combos and not think 50 Shades of Grey. Still, Wu is a master at glamour. With ethereal ball gowns, glittering crystal-studded shoes, and fancy-pant trousers more appropriate for a waltz than the weekend, Wu brought the glamour to what's typically the most casual of all the Fashion Weeks. Never mind that book — we're seduced anyway.
