The designer: Matthew Christopher

The details: Strapless styles, classic silhouettes, textured embroidery and out-of-the-box angular bodices inspired by his grandmother's wedding dress.

The looks: Known for show-stopping designs and an acute attention to detail, the Iowa-born designer did it again this season with a fall collection that's all sorts of structured and elegant. While dimensional embroidery and and plenty of texture are just two reasons to love Christopher's latest designs, we especially love his twist on strapless styles thanks to angular-winged bodices and touchable fabrics. One design we can't stop obsessing over: A strapless, Gatsby-inspired sheath that features a wow-worthy train and delicate sequin and pearl detailing.
