With an emphasis on crisp pleating, sharp lines, and sculptural draping, architectural looks are all-important for 2011.

A satin-faced organza slim A-line gown goes graphic, thanks to a fan-pleated asymmetrical design. Other special effects: a jeweled accent, sash ties in the back, and a chapel train; $4,100, Judd Waddell. Ring, Anzie, 877-551-7257 (Saks Fifth Avenue). Bangle, Alexis Bittar.
