Cruise wear was the focus of fashionistas this week in New York as both Dior, seen here, and Ferretti unveiled their resort collections for 2008.
Designer John Galliano looked back to the 1950s with a Dior resort collection that called to mind classic Audrey Hepburn, early Jackie O and glamorous Liz Taylor.
Galliano's line featured a lot of bold, bright colors and high hats, like those seen here.

The white chiffon gown with Grecian lines is typical of Ferretti's emphasis on basic pieces and classic styles.
In contrast to Dior's brilliant hues, Ferretti limits his palette to the neutrals -- black, white, beige and gray.
