What other legwear options are there One of my favorite looks involves patterned tights – monochromatic looks that have designs on them. It's a great way to dress up a plain little black dress.

The newly named designer came in with a new name for the label – now called Saint Laurent Paris – and moved its headquarters to Los Angeles.In April, iconic designer Betsey Johnson, best known for her whimsy designs and runway cartwheels, filed bankruptcy and basket Isabel Marant liquidated all of her stores. That same month, Raf Simons replaced John Galliano as creative director of Dior, freeing up his post for designer Jil Sander to return to her eponymous label.Most recently, Alexander Wang was named the new creative director for Balenciaga, taking over for Nicolas Ghesquiere, who reportedly left after 15 years because of a dispute with parent company PPR. But according to Vogue's Grace Coddington, Ghesquiere "will bide his time and come back. He's too brilliant to just disappear." Perhaps 2013 will bring him to the Schiaparelli label, which still is without a creative director.
