Number 1: Jay McCarroll
Of course no one is surprised that our Number One is from Jay's collection but maybe some are are surprised that THIS is the look we chose. To be honest, we bickered quite a bit over which look deserved the slot and Lorenzo finally convinced Tom that this crocheted cape/poncho and color-blocked skirt was the one above all others. It may seem strange after all the high-end gowns on the list to pick these relatively humble separates, but no other look does as good a job of summing up Jay's masterful collection than this one. His love of crochet and quilting, his color sense, and his unique, funky style are all here on display. The bottom line is, it's just our favorite damn look and it always has been.
