Is there a better season, style-wise, than fall? Even though it’s been blistering here in Orange County of late, we all long for cozy coats, nubby knits, fun furs and piles of fall accessories.

Recently a lucky few got to see the season’s best looks up close at South Coast Plaza’s annual “Live the Look” presentation.

Shoppers, special guests, bloggers and fashionistas from all over sat on white benches as models wearing looks from SCP’s luxury boutiques strutted by while designer, celeb stylist and TV personality Rachel Zoe narrated. (We’ll have an exclusive conversation with Zoe in our December issue, so stayed tuned!)

South Coast Plaza Executive Director, Debra Gunn Downing, told the well-dressed crowd that this fall’s collections were particularly “lustable”.

And, holy Coco Chanel (fact: Carrie Bradshaw herself once made someone swear on Chanel, so you know …), was she right. Among the “lustable” looks—many of which were also seen  the previous day at the annual Harvester’s luncheon benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank which raised $675,000—were:

Valentino:
