When it comes to Jenny Packham, you know — to some extent — what you're getting: soft, ethereal, red carpet-ready dresses with exquisite crystal detail.

For spring, the Brit designer didn't disappoint, showcasing Monday a parade of jaw-dropping gowns (and a few pairs of encrusted hot pants) in materials that scream luxury: flowing chiffon, silk and tulle.

Adding to her typical airy neutral palette was the introduction of color: coral, poppy and perfect shades of mint and pistachio (green is fast emerging as the hue of the season).

Packham's signature crystals showed up in various ways — on bodices, in linings and sewn into impeccably-detailed floral patterns. Hot-pink Louboutins and super-sleek hair completed the pretty picture.
