Menswear inspired looks have always been some of my favorite, from a tuxedo to a tailored jacket with ruffled dress.

The following are some inspirational images of different takes on menswear as womenswear:

**UPDATE: As we saw on last night's Project Runway, menswear as womenswear can be hard to do!  The key is all about keeping the feminine influence, especially in the fit.  Your pieces should be tailored to woman, with enough fit to show off your curves.  Even in a piece like Bottega Veneta suit above, the pants are slim, the jacket is cut for a woman, and the absence of a shirt gives it sexy appeal only a woman can pull off.  Don't forget about the important of styling.  As we've seen many times on PR the hair, makeup, and accessories can make or break the look.

Trompe L'Oeil

Trompe L'Oeil, which in French means to "deceive the eye," is an art style of two-dimensional work made to look three-dimensional.  It is making quiet a splash in the fashion world, but in a more cartoon-whimsical style.  Urban Outfitters currently has lots of bags with this look, from totes to makeup cases.

Armani Fall 2010 Ads

As the fall fashion magazines start arriving in your mailbox, be sure to check out Armani's latest ad campaign.  So far it is my favorite, by a long shot.  I love the muted palette with the pops of crimson red, be it the clothing, a couch, or lips.  The ads are stunning, graceful, and powerful.
