Who says metallics have to be reserved for holiday parties--this Spring 09 designers embraced metallics and mixed them with bright colors or used them for elegant nighttime looks.

Otherwise, many designers used sequins and embroidery to display metallic shades. Check out our Spring 2009 trend report below with our favorite examples from the season.
Yesterday we brought you a preview of the DKNY Spring 2010 swimwear collection and today, a swim collection by the beloved Marc Jacobs. As was expected the collection was young, brightly colored, and in flirty/quirky cuts that will intimidate some and tempt others. Particularly striking was one white bathing suit with ruffles at the bodice and a geometric romper that could easily be worn by the patio in the evening. Check out our exclusive photos of the collection below.
Yesterday wasn't just a big day for Katie Holmes, in fact, another celebrity Spring 09 ad campaign dropped--namely, Victoria Beckham for Emporio Armani Underwear.
