Plenty of designers drop the line that they're designing for a wide variety of people, personalities, and tastes, but none can stake that claim quite as clearly and confidently as Rodarte. With a line that's both feminine and edgy, boundary-pushing and refined, it quite naturally appeals to a gamut of sartorial aesthetics. And today's New York Fashion Week show drew in a diverse celeb crowd. From Taylor Swift sitting surreptitiously next to Vogue Editor In Chief Anna Wintour to Elle and Dakota Fanning in sweet matchy-smatchy papyrus-hued outfits, the stars came OUT for Rodarte.

The Mulleavy sisters, Kate and Laura, brought in another set of sisters contributing an additional wildly different style set—Beyoncé and Solange Knowles fresh from the morning's J.Crew presentation. Their innovative Spring 2012 designs are sure to appeal in some way to each girl's unique taste and flourish.

The collection featured an unexpected but still spring-appropriate mixture of rich hues with pastels: mostly mint, lilac, and mustard. The constant found in this color palette grounded the designers' experimentation with tailoring and lines. Two trends spotted within the collection were off-the-shoulder necklines and painterly strokes (one dress was even printed with Van Gogh's "Starry Night"!). Rodarte showed everything from oversized chunky knits to super-structured winged lapels, A-line dresses with full skirts to tunic + pant separates looks, all styled with retro pin-up hair and heavy charcoal eyes. Loveloveloveeeeee.
