The Fashion Week Diaries: Betsey Johnson Sticks To The Script, Marc Jacobs Channels The '40s, Monique Lhuillier (Hearts) Bows, and Alice + Olivia Pile It On

New York Fashion Week showed no signs of slowing down on Monday, when big-time designers like Betsey Johnson, Marc Jacobs, Monique Lhuillier, and Alice + Oliva presented their fall collections. Let's look at some of our favorite pieces.

BETSEY JOHNSON: She's known for her bold and colorful designs, and last night, Betsey Johnson showed off what she does best. There were leopard print, crazy floral patterns, and tons of neon colors for good measure.

MARC JACOBS: Marc Jacobs went for a '40s flair with dresses and separates designed with a vintage aesthetic. We loved the layering of lace under patterned fabrics, as well as form-fitting silhouettes. So freakin' Audrey Hepburn.

MONIQUE LHUILLIER: No one does romance like Monique Lhuillier, who showed a collection of gorgeous gowns in both neutrals and brights. The belted bow was a nice finishing touch on the super feminine frocks.

ALICE + OLIVIA: Alice + Olivia's über hip collection was a lesson in layering. To do: Throw floral dresses under cozy knits and printed jackets for a comfy but cool look. Oh, and don't forget your string of pearls or pendant necklace.
