Vera Wang has become a household name, first for her minimalist/elegant wedding dresses, then her foray into ready-to-wear and now as the elegance-for-the-masses-designer for Kohls.

So how about Vera Wang for Fall of 2008? Wang showed an elegant line that was inspired by the flapper era of the 1920's. Her suits were loosely flowing as were the suits of the twenties, an era where skirts first rose to mid-calf and modesty and embellishment reigned. The evening wear harkened to the flappers or F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. This line would look beautiful on a modern-day Daisy Buchanan.
