Iconic for her mix of sharp tailoring and soft draping, slinky stretch jersey fabrics, and timeless aesthetic, Donna Karan captures the essence of the modern woman season after season with her  designs.

In honor of the designer's spring 2013 collection, we give you our four favorite Donna Karan runway moments from the past five years:

Spring 2008:

It was all about sharp structure on the spring 2008 runway—nipped waists, archetectural cuts, and super-voluminous "parasol skirts," as Karan called them. We love the bold shoulders and down-to-there neckline on this fit-and-flare frock from the collection.

Fall 2011:

One of the first to get in on the sock bun craze-of-the-moment, we look to Karan's fall 2011 show to master the art of the messy-yet-polished twisted updo. The key is to embrace the flyaways, which gives the sleek hairstyle unfussy appeal.

Spring 2009:

Just one glance at those dreamy, goddess-worthy gowns and it's apparent why Karan called this collection "Liquid Assets." The drape, the movement, the muted hues—every element of her spring show pointed to effortless luxe.

Fall 2012:

The French manicure resurfaced in unexpected ways on the fall 2012 runways—and we love how gothy yet glamorous this oxblood-tipped iteration looks. Keep your eyes out for this rich berry hue this season! Mark our words—it will be everywhere.
