What better way to commemorate International Women's Day than with a collection that celebrates the female form? For the brand's third installment, Lebanese-American designer Eli Mizrahi highlights women's bodies as a work of art with skin-baring silhouettes and architectural elements.

Tiffany Haddish, Stella Maxwell, and other ethereal women donned the sleek collection, inspired by Madonna's 1992 book Sex. Each piece showcased their curves with daring cutouts, form-fitting shapes, and bondage-esque straps. All except two looks — a structured white blazer ensemble with hipbone-height slits and a cutout column dress — were shown in slinky jet black.

An assortment of fabrics kept the collection from appearing one-note. Silk chiffon, crepe, and jersey dominated the looks, and a few experimented with vegan leather — rendered into a plunging jumpsuit, midi skirt set, bustier dress and more. While most of the outfits featured skintight shapes, dramatic gill-like sleeves added a welcome visual contrast. The accompanying Instagram video showed the models in an industrial space, letting the looks take center stage.

"I wanted to shake things up even more with this collection," said designer Eli Mizrahi. "It is a revival of the Mônot woman who is ready to come back stronger than ever. I chose to cast women like Tiffany Haddish for the show because she embodies everything Mônot represents –a woman who portrays inherent strength and confidence.”
