"Narciso's clothes have drama, but they're never loud or overdone," says publicist Blanca Lassalle, whose clients have included Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez. Take this matte jersey sheath ($250), which tweaks the usual little-black-dress concept with a surprising off-center slice of color. Lassalle likes the combination of dark-and-slimming and a "festive" touch of red, and she considers Rodriguez's tailoring unmatched ("It hugs my body in the right places"). Another asset: It can go straight from work to evening.
