No one can whip up a floral print into a tantalizing dress better than flower power master Emanuel Ungaro. We've noticed a resurgence of flower prints on the runways again, but for the real deal we suggest the original maestro for your garden delights.

The first dress is quintessential Ungaro draped chiffon bustier cocktail dress in a tropical floral print against a black background. Sexy, not slutty. This is a year-round dress, too...what we call in the biz, a "good value."

The second Ungaro floral print is a fitted cream satin blouse with slim sleeves and marvelous buttons. The versatile ruffled collar and ties make the blouse naughty and nice or a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n roll. The blouse reminds us of Ossie Clark designs of the 1970s, but this is strictly 1980s. We love the blouse with a pair of faded blue jeans and crocodile cowboy boots from Leddys.
