Amongst the works of T. S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald and other literary greats, models wearing pieces as grand as the imagery in The Great Gatsby walked the great halls of The New York Public Library on Monday. In their wake, attentive celebs and the subdued fashion set were left ogling the visual indulgence that was Gabriela Cadena spring 2016.

Of course, in the front-row trenches, E! Style Collective's fearless stylist Lindsay Albanese sat soaking in the Art Deco-inspired offerings.

"The collection spanned everything from saccharine dresses to vampy and flashy party and evening looks," described Lindsay. "These are looks for the girl who wants to flaunt her figure—no billowy bohemian pieces here!"

For celebs attending the show, like Michelle Rodriguez and Jaime King, that's something to remember come red carpet season. For Lindsay, the up-and-coming designer's attention to detail was the ticket to the show's success.

"Sleeves were a prominent style element to this show," the stylist noted. "It's as if she was boycotting any basic styles. There was everything from cut-outs, off-the-shoulder bell and long-winged sleeves to a slim, long sleeve with an additional sheer overlay, which was a creative touch."

However, the best piece of the collection, according to Lindsay—"an all-white coordinate look with an asymmetrical white skirt layered over a sheer, burn-out fabric"—brought a modern, sleek feel to the intricate line, proving less is sometimes more.
