Perfect pumps, sexy sweaters and melton wool. Lots of melton wool.

Stella McCartney did it right this season. A drumbeat opened the show in the gorgeously elaborate Palais Garnier, models stomping down in front-seamed "alter nappa" pumps, a single jumbo pearl stud positioned at the top corner of their left ears. (Here's hoping it's a clip-on.) The fantastic accessories were just the start, though. McCartney makes clothes with real women in mind, and this season's lineup -- filled with grays and rusts and creams and blacks -- lived up to her brand promise.

For instance, long, chunky sweater dresses were slit on a bias from the shoulder to the hem -- a cut that added added a bit of sensuality to an otherwise modest garment. The collection's through-line was curves: molded peplums in melton wool, kick flare pants with ultra-wide cuffs and sculpted pearl chokers contributed to the overall sense of fluidity.

At fashion shows, we often ask ourselves: Is there a customer for that? The answer at Stella McCartney was a resounding yes, from the fluffy fur-like patchwork coats, to the gold-brocade evening looks. Her fans will be happy to dole out for this stuff.
