    It's only fitting that the title of Kaya Burcak's Spring '13 collection is "L'amour Fou," considering we're crazy in love with every single piece from the lookbook! Shot at the famed Villa De Leon home in the Palisades, the historic estate provided a stunning backdrop to the lastest wares from L.A.-based Mlle. The doe-eyed model, clad in revealing lace and edgy studs, wanders around the property, stopping only to enjoy the sweeping ocean videos and pay a visit to the vast library (topless, no less!).

    While the marble statues and floor-to-ceiling tapestries are certainly breathtaking, it's Burcak's intricate detailing and use of lavish textures that steal the show.

Local style star Aimee Song took that metallic snakeskin blazer from the fifth slide with her to NYFW and had street-style photogs in a near panic, and it's easy to see why.

    Forget booking plane tickets to Europe to see the sights — after taking a peek at this slideshow, we're sure your wanderlust will be satiated.
