ANSWER: B. Dubbed "fashion's architect" for the voluminous, sculptural shapes he favored, whether for his own line or when he was at the helm of Dior from 1989 to 1996, Gianfranco Ferré never failed to help mold each season with his signature simple grandeur.

From the next big thing to the instant classic to the latest cult label (hello, Marni!), nothing hits the spot like Italian fashion's feisty, feminine shapes and fantastico accessories. See the best of Italian fashion.

Designer Dossier: Vera Wang
"Though I'm freaked all the time" -- Wang has grown her brand from bridal to include three womenswear collections (Vera Wang, Vera Wang Lavender Label, Simply Vera Vera Wang), as well as fragrance, china, and jewelry -- "I live for the shock-and-awe part of selling style: the frenzied 11-minute shows, the red-carpet riot."

"My passion before fashion was figure skating, and I'm still in my signature leggings -- they elongate the leg. I just skip them on the golf course, where I spend what little downtime I have!"

Designer Dossier: Jean Paul Gaultier
As out-there as Gaultier can get — the iconic cone bra for Madonna; the scaly mermaid dress Best Actress winner Marion Cotillard wore to this year's Oscars; the skirts (and a new cosmetics line) for men — no one crafts classic riding coats and boots like he does for the venerable 171-year-old house of Hermès. (OK, so the boots are hot-pink crocodile.) Now navigating three lines (his own label's haute couture and ready-to-wear, plus Hermès), fashion's buoyant bad boy, ever-clad in sailor stripes, still rules fashion's tumultuous waves.

"What is Nirvana?" asks the 56-year-old Frenchman. "It's Hermès! I like to twist their centuries-old codes a little and put in some Gaultier. For my first collection, I designed a leather corset with clasps reminiscent of the Kelly bag."

Designer Dossier: Michael Kors
"I never apprenticed with a designer, but even as a teenager, my world was rocked by Yves Saint Laurent, who gave women building blocks — like peacoats — and Halston, who proved simplicity was luxury. My greatest luxury is simple, too: the sun. The beach is my battery-charger — much to the chagrin of my skin doctor."

Derek Lam: Designer Dossier
"Michael Kors taught me American classics 101; Diego della Valle [who appointed Lam Tod's creative director in 2006] is the genius who re-fashioned the traditional men's driving moc as something sexy and iconic for women. With luck, the Tod's artisans will make me an honorary Italian cobbler someday!"
