Style 5:The Superhero
"Iron Man", "Hellboy", "The Incredible Hulk" and "Hancock" are just some of the classic and slightly-odd hero movies that we have seen this summer. The designers have decided to borrow the theme and use it for their fall-winter collection. Check out the following futuristic and kick-villain's-ass outfits.
10. Antonio Berardi
This number from Antonio Berardi is definitely superhero-ish. I think that the dress by itself is chic enough, though. You don't need the cape and those thigh-high boots - but hey, whatever works for the theme, right?

This futuristic piece from Balenciaga is a cut above the rest. My only complaint about the dress is that it would make your boobs look flat because of that design up front.

Karl Lagerfeld, the genius behind Fendi, definitely has the Midas touch in designing women's clothing. This white dress is super trendy, and that belt accent is simply fab!

7. Gareth Pugh
Uhmm - I don’t particularly like this outfit from budding designer Gareth Pugh. True, the skirt-sleeve combo is quite distinctive - but what are those things on her hands? Are they supposed to be the accessories that superpowers are made of?

6. Haider Ackermann
This ensemble from Haider Ackermann is interesting, to say the least. I love the way that the collar is worn and how the skirt-like accent elegantly billows behind the model as she struts her stuff on the runway.

I definitely wouldn't mind owing that jacket - it's a fab piece to have for winter. The pants don't work for me, though - it looks like she's not wearing any!

4. Jens Laugesen
Now you know what that geeky guy in your office will look like if he's a girl, lol. But seriously, this Jens Laugusen outfit does not do it for me - the top looks like four or five separate pieces of top instead of one cohesive whole. The pants are okay, though. (Do I qualify as a judge for Project Runway now?)

3. Krystol Strozyna
For me, this fab futuristic piece from Krystol Strozyna is the best and most elegant design from the lot! It's something that you can actually wear to a date, despite having that futuristic theme.

2. Rad Hourani
If Lindsay Lohan would only rethink her leggings phase, this black Rad Hourani number would definitely suit her!

Look like a tattered futuristic Raggedy Ann doll - if you dare! - in this outfit from Rodarte.
