    We've highlighted fashionable folks in Silicon Valley before, though none of them have shown up in six-inch Kirkwoods — until now, that is. Enter Ruzwana Bashir, the 29-year-old CEO and founder of Peek, who is injecting some serious brio into start-up style, one dress at a time.

    Click ahead to see how this head-turner pulls together four winsome looks for spring. Cheers to living proof that you really can have it all — beauty, brains, and ball gowns!
