Jason Wu’s Power Girls

Jason Wu gave a nod to the ’90s on Friday with a spring collection full of slinky slipdresses, textured sweatshirts and boxy, tailored suiting. In keeping with his fascination with femininity—especially its darker side—Wu played with the idea of the corset, placing laces here and there, but for the most part, looks were unstructured and slightly slouchy, in a curve-flattering way. The show opened with supermodel Karen Elson wearing a halter-neck gown covered in sparkles, hair parted severely down the middle. Meanwhile, Alicia Keys and Mad Men’s Jessica Paré held court in the front row, sporting fitted black dresses with lacy necklines.
