It's not hard to figure out why Ralph Lauren likes Texas — and the feeling is mutual. His Polo Ralph Lauren collection is known for bright colors and bold florals, perfect for our sunny climate, and the tailored prep look fits in with the aspirational attitude so prevalent in the Lone Star State.

So it's no wonder when Lauren was looking to expand, he focused on Texas. He unveiled a store in the Houston Galleria just before last Thanksgiving and now is finishing up a big new store in Dallas' NorthPark Center, which opens next month.

Everything remains close to perfect in the world of Polo Ralph Lauren, as the master designer didn't deviate from the successful plan for spring 2016. The label revealed the new Polo women's collection during New York Fashion Week on September 11 atop the McKittrick Hotel, in a leafy setting that resembled a fabulous outdoor garden patio, with models lounging in small groups just as they might do when they're not being paid to look beautiful.

The sunny collection is certainly one to get the wearer noticed, with linen blazers in eye-popping colors of orange, pink, and green, and denim pants in the same sherbet shades, accented with a touch of fringe to stay true to current trends. Wispy floral dresses in various lengths, from mini to maxi, also adhere to the same optimistic color palette, while tailored pantsuits and cotton shirts in a blue and white strip set a crisp tone.

A section of the collection fades to black, with leather pants, linen sweaters, lace shawls, and clingy dresses in the shade most associated with New York. But it's the colors that shine in this collection.

Selena Gomez showed up in a black leather romper and posed for photos with Brooklyn Beckham, the 16-year-old son of David and Victoria, who was clad in white T-shirt and blue jean jacket, with the best head of hair since James Dean. But amid the bright Polo surroundings, both underdressed celebrities looked they had wandered into the wrong party.
