Ok, so bottom line: black is the new black for fall, but no one did it better than Donna Karan, who called her collection, “Forever Black,” -- hey, she’s always been a fan.

Her smashing parade of textural pieces was simultaneously modern and regal -- perfect for urban princesses. Donna’s famous body suit was the foundation for a series of sculpted skirts in graveled, waxed, or rubberized finishes. Classy coats shaped like cocoons had textural interest some subtly glowing in the lights. Feminine dresses incorporated lace or feathers, but most dramatic were huge doubled collars that framed the face -- romantic but hip.

Forty-seven looks and four had color -- a pop of magenta, and a bit of blue. To be sure, front rowers Demi Moore, Brooke Shields and Marissa Berenson will find something star-worthy here.
