    The tall, pale-haired beauty cooked up another lovely, ultra-ladylike collection for spring, complete with white tea party hats and elegant, simply-cut dresses.

    Apparently, the designer's mood board was inspired by a trip to Japan, which makes sense considering the sophisticated simplicity of much of the ensembles (and one navy-and-floral print that popped up throughout the collection), as well as a mood that felt at once girlish and quietly confident.

    The palette started off with cool, pretty colors -- from soft neutrals and whites to a wonderfully icy blue -- and then veered towards sophisticated black and navy. Somehow Fetherston, too, couldn't resist the allure of adding black mesh to some of her outfits (including one model whose chest was fully exposed, which seemed rather an odd couterpoint to the rest of the relatively demure collection). Our favorites were the low-but-not-too-low-cut beige dresses (this one, pictured, had a lovely peplum skirt) and the striking last two dresses down the runway -- both with short underlayers and long, semi-transparent wispy skirts.
