Sallyann is hoping for a more elegant return to the 1980s: “80s silhouette, puff sleeves, full sleeves, wider shoulder than we’ve seen in the last decade or so. Think: Dynasty, Alexis Carrington, Princess Diana.”—Sallyann Rudd
Brigitte is OVER this look: “… crop jackets with classic skirts, showing bellies. Really don’t like that look.”—Brigitte de Valois
