    To sum up Stella McCartney in a few words would be easy: simple, clean, feminine-sporty, vegan. Though Stella McCartney may have found a winning formula that she's stuck with, it doesn't mean that a collection via her hand is predictable. Like any really stylish woman we know, she's consistent (and it's no coincidence that the whole sporty, boxy, working-woman thing is trending right now.... Stella's led that charge).

    One of her oft-used elements, sheer panels, showed up in the collection again with a new take on colorblocking, and it looked more like pools of paint on tracing paper than a Mondrian painting — sexy but nothing in your face about it (just how we like it). She tackled sheer again with over-skirts, roomy sweatshirts, and even open-toed stretch-top slip-ons (hello 1999). Without any OTT accessories or "creative" layering, Stella really let each individual piece sing and her simple styling take center stage.

    No, a strapless eyelet dress may not be the new drop-crotch shape or pairing a sweatshirt with loose-fit trousers or may not be the new dress-over-pants, but it sure is can be beautiful (and you can bet it won't be done any better than on Stella's runway). Click through to see all the looks.

Wouldn't it be great to travel to work via private limo/boat/helicopter/piggyback? Alas, our most frequent mode of transportation is by foot — whether we’re running from the subway (or the parking lot) on weekdays or strolling through the park en route to Sunday brunch. So, our hooves require shoes that won’t make us read
