Bows, feathers and wispy flower details were everywhere in this collection. I adored the drop waist party dresses and the bow kitten heels. It looks like pointy shoe heels are finally making a comeback! Even the gloves the models wore had bow accents:).
OMG I absolutely fell in love with this collection! Elie Saab is one of my favorite designers to begin with, but he topped his games this time with amazing gowns that should be hitting the red carpets to come. All the jeweled details, airiness and great shapes in the dresses would make any woman look and feel beautiful. I can't wait to see which celeb wears one of these pieces first!
I classify this collection as the 70s glamour girl. I loved the wood accessories and hard structured bags (very classic). All the models who weren't already blond wore blond wigs, styled in a glossy side swept way. The colors were very luscious and rich which made the whole collection seem prestigious and expensive (which it of course is!).
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
In true Jean Paul fashion, his collection featured his infamous cone shapes and over the top style. It had a very old time elegance about the whole thing, featuring sixties makeup, silk turbans, dark moody garments, and parlor room feels. I loved how the show ended with the bride model playing the violin....very much a signature twist:)
This collection was BY FAR my ultimate favorite. Being an avid flower lover, I lusted over all the bright colors, voluminous petal dresses, and whimsical hair and makeup. The whole thing reminded me of the scene in "Alice in Wonderland" where she meets all the talking flowers. For me the models were these visionary flowers, gorgeous and naturally elegant. And I must say, if I had a pair of those strappy vine like heels, I think I might be set for life!
Went to the city this past week to see the new Broadway musical, "Promises, Promises". The show was great but the street styles I saw on the way there and back were much more interesting and eye catching. A complete 180 from the cold weather garbs I noted back in March, the Big Apple was blooming with floral prints, sky high wedges, ripped denim, and neutral accessories. It was hard to stop staring in each which way at all the fabulous outfits walking the streets......everything from punk, to classy, to urban chic. Gotta love the big city life!
