New York Fashion Week has been running for a few days now, and some of the spring collections have been hot enough to bake the big apple.

Today, we'll take a peak at some peak-a-boo dresses from Max Azria.

With no bells and whistles, the lingering look of the BCBG spring collection presented Friday came from the little bit of flounce that trailed behind the models in loose white- and sand-colored minidresses and jumpsuits.

The silhouettes were airy and ethereal. Who couldn't use a little linen dress with a bit of embroidery that could be the key piece of a weekend-getaway wardrobe?

Max Azria, designer, said, "Dresses short is sexy, is cool, is relaxed, it's a new way to dress for a woman. It's very versatile, because there are different dresses, different texture, and we can play a lot because there are a lot of square feet."

The one potential stumbling block for many of the pieces was the super-short length. Presumably, when they hit stores, that will be adjusted, but for the likes of model Coco Rocha and recording artist Ashlee Simpson -- both in the front row -- the fingertip-length dresses would be cute.

Ashlee Simpson, artist, said, "I think he knows how to fit, you know, the woman's body, so I love to come here and admire what's coming out, what's new, and it's a great show to come to. It's fun and it's young and it's definitely flattering to the body."

Easier for mere mortals might be the maxi dresses, including the white silk seersucker dress with a plunging V on both the front and back that opened the show.

Once again, Azria's wife and design partner, Lubov, was the best model. She wore one of the tan, just-sheer-enough numbers to take her bow, but you could also envision her in it on a night in the town or hosting a cocktail party.
