He's designed for Michelle Obama, Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Lopez. And yesterday Indian-born Naeem Khan showcased his fall/winter collection 2010 at the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week only to receive a standing ovation. Here's a look at his creations on the runway.

In Khan's own words, this particular line was "a celebration of glamour with a touch of American classic sportswear and a hint of love, sex and rock & roll". Seen here is a stunning silver sequinned cocktail with geometric motif.
