NEW YORK -- The collection: BCBG Max Azria. The inspiration: Femme fatales and Helmut Newton's black and white photography. The look: Boudoir bondage. A mix of chambray work wear pieces (jumpers, jump suits and jackets) and fluid, silk crepe blouses, skirts and dresses with digitized print, tulle and lace panels -- all accessorized with black leather harnesses. Colors included black, white and petal pink. The scene: A glittering front row of celebs with Estelle, Selena Ebanks and Olympic sprinter Sanya Richards Ross, who was wearing beige crepe trousers, a color-blocked blouse and super-high sandals with what appeared to be white cotton pads on the insides of the straps to keep from blistering her famous feet.

There's an adage that finding the perfect wedding dress is like finding a perfect partner: You want one that hugs your body, offers support, lifts you up and makes you feel beautiful. So wouldn't it be great to get a dress from a brand that, like your future spouse, you trust to give you these things on an average Wednesday as well as on what's supposed to be the most memorable day of your life? That seems to be the philosophy behind the slew of major mass-market retailers now offering bridal gowns.

For 20 years Max Azria made blue jeans in Paris for his own chain of clothing stores. But it wasn't blue jeans that landed Azria, now head of the design house BCBG, on a runway here.
