Sitting front row at New York Fashion Week, you can't help but imagine which gowns might end up on which stars on the red carpet. Every stunning ball gown that catches your eye, you envision on anyone from Rihanna to Taylor Swift then secretly get excited when the gown actually does hit the award show circuit, just like you predicted (trust us, it's better than betting on a team for the Superbowl). For his fall 2012 collection, Zac Posen gave us a myriad of spell-bounding gowns that would be befitting of a Hollywood star, with a royal blue printed number practically made for, say, Reese Witherspoon at Cannes and a red mermaid stunner that Jennifer Lopez could bring to life. Zac Posen's dramatic eveningwear, from the sweeping hems to the decadent satin fabric, looked like it should come complete with a sea of paparazzi and flashing lightbulbs.

While the collection may very well find a home on the red carpet in Hollywood, Zac Posen's inspiration stemmed from the Far East. Details like origami folds, kimono-style silhouettes, and obi belts brought an exotic sensibility to the line, which was still wearable and decidedly cool. Notorious for his astounding gowns, Posen found a way to equally distinguish his separates and daytime dresses with Asian-inspired prints and bold fire-red hues. The crimson lips, impeccable bun, and striking cat eye were perfection, with a side of Chinese glamour that translates for women from New York City to Hollywood and beyond. And with Brad Goreski sitting front row (alongside Anna Wintour and Dita von Teese), our bet is his client Jessica Alba will be first to rock it on the red carpet. Doesn't she, like, LIVE in a bun and a red lip anyway?
