Before we present part two of our runway challenge, here are the results from last week’s evening dress challenge. And the winner is . . . Sophisticated Lady with 32.73% of the votes, slightly edging out Who Me? by one vote. And maybe gentlemen don’t prefer blondes (good news for us brunettes), as it only got one vote. Thank you to all who voted (and the poll is still open if you haven’t yet!).
Today’s runway show is day dresses. Click below to score the designs and vote for your favorite look. You get to decide which is in and which is out!
Baby, You’re a Firework

Heading out to a hip jazz club? The comfort and movement of the jersey fabric combine flawlessly with the vibrant colors to create a rhythmic masterpiece that even Duke Ellington would envy.

You don’t have to dress like the suits to be taken seriously. Tailored to perfection for the power gal on the go, this look is sharp enough to break through any glass ceiling.
A Breath of Fresh Air
Look stylish as you pedal through Central Park on a lovely Spring day. This outfit has it all—casual enough for a relaxing afternoon outdoors, but come evening don the matching bolero and you are ready for a quick bite in Soho.
Whether lunching with the ladies, shopping for antiques, or volunteering for your favorite charity, brighten their day the Doris Duke way with this casual yet dazzling red ensemble. The complimentary coat lends this look to the changing seasons when the weather is as unpredictable as your busy schedule.
