What a train wreck of desperation the MTV Video Music Awards were Sunday night, right? I'm not going to continue to pile on Miley Cyrus. The girl is 20, lest we forget, and if we're not careful, she's going to end up like Lindsay Lohan. But her look--on the red carpet and onstage--just reinforced that the whole show was about bumping and grinding and butt jokes and bare midriffs and above all, trying too hard. Taylor Swift, poured into that navy blue Herve Leger column dress, had an unpleasant air of being above it all. So did her pal Selena Gomez, who looked like Swift's mean girl partner-in-crime, dressed in a navy blue Versace column gown.

Romance traveled with the speed of a bullet train when Europe's designers showed their ready-to-wear for spring. From Milan to Paris, the look is soft and curvy, short and swirly, shaped to bare more skin than we've seen in quite a while. Karl Lagerfeld, who designs in both cities, is one of the main reasons for the heartthrob mood. On the opposite page, his romantically ruffled, black strapless gown for Chanel.

The protege is back in fashion. Young new designers have taken over the design duties at Givenchy, Emanuel Ungaro and Chloe, invigorating the spring season with a sense of new beginnings at the established houses. Even if the newcomers' collections weren't revolutionary, the circumstances of their appointment may be. Two of the three were assistants who were promoted, a practice that had long fallen out of favor as many companies preferred to import talent for a jolt of newness.

Paris Fashion Week starts Tuesday, the last and most important of the September weeks dedicated to designers' collections for spring-summer 2013. The Cut blog notes that so far, in collections seen in New York, London and Milan, there's been a big Japanese influence, evident at Rodarte, Marni, Gianfranco Ferre and Alexander Wang, in details such as wing-shaped shoulders, wide pants and "origami-like organdy.

It is a rare event when Emanuel Ungaro hangs up his starched white tailor's smock and makes a promotional appearance. But the French couturier started a whirlwind 48-hour visit to Los Angeles Tuesday night that even includes a stop at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills (Thursday, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.) to promote his Diva perfume.

Oscar de la Renta's first Paris runway show went off without a hitch this week. The New York-based designer once worked here as an assistant at the couture house of Jeanne Lanvin, and French designers filled the front-row seats of his show. "I wanted to show him that we French are welcoming foreign designers," Christian Lacroix said. American retailers encouraged the move.

W: The Designing Life, by the staff of W, edited by Lois Perschetz (Clarkson N. Potter: $35).

The Paris couture shows, a twice-a-year exercise in excess that is part fashion laboratory, part craft preservation, ended this week with a glimmer of autumn trends that could translate to women with smaller checkbooks. Donatella Versace's liberal use of zebra, tiger and ocelot prints indicated that animal prints are becoming less of a now-and-then trend and more of a fashion perennial.

Personal style. Where does it come from? Some have an innate sense of it. Others look to the runways in New York, Milan and Paris for style cues. Trend-setting designer looks are cause for either inspiration or consternation. But we're all curious to know what's new. Some women may be lucky enough to actually purchase the outfits seen on the runways. But most would not spend that kind of money. The creative will search for new items that fit their budgets.
