Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan at New York Fashion Week
Punk rules on the catwalks in New York, but the ladies have something to say, too
Marc Jacobs might not have had Victoria Beckham on the front row of his catwalk show this season, but we reckon he won’t be short of a headline or two this morning.

Forget tailoring, forget the jumpsuit and definitely forget anything feminine, for autumn/winter 09, the master of reinvention wants us all to dress up aspunks, right down to thepurple lipstickandsparkly bodysuits.
Sound a little scary? Actually, if you look past the 80s-style make-up, and hemlines so short they’d make evenLindsay Lohanblush, this rock’n’roll collection was upbeat, wearable and just the thing to snap us all out of our credit-crunch-weary boredom.
Starting proceedings a whole minute early (unheard of in fashion circles),Jacobspacked his collection withmicro minisin daring shades of vivid pink and clashing yellow; some seriously sexy,sculpted corsets– unzipped at the back to show off acres of flesh;thigh-heels bootsin purple suede or black leather;studded ankle bootstied with ribbon around the ankle; angular jackets and shirts with bold, exaggerated shoulders; and, finally, a few paisley pieces thrown in for good measure.
If you’re already sick to the back teeth of the frilly ruffles and muted florals in the shops for summer, this could be just the antidote you were looking for.
If, on the other hand, you’ve nothing against gorgeous dresses and quite like clothes designed to flatter and caress the body, rather than send a volt of electricity around a room, thanDonna Karan‘s devastatingly beautiful autumn/winter collection was the second show of the day to get the Marie Claire stamp of approval – and it wasn’t just the live pianist which won us over.
