London: Christopher Bailey took a romantic turn for Cruise, with feminized versions of the classic trench—concise and collar-less or bejeweled and belted—gorgeous lace and brocade, a curve-hugging calf-length silhouette and novel jewel-encrusted elbow patches on fine knits. The color palette, too, was as rich as the fabrics, with fondant pastels, shimmering golden tones and every shade of green from seafoam to emerald. Graceful gowns with cut-outs and sweeping bow-tie backs concluded the collection of elegant, streamlined looks. —Natalie Shukur
