I FINALY Got around to checking out the couture collections
sheesh, i'm slow.
So here is what i have to say about a few of them:
Anne Valérie Hash- Wow! A couture collection, that for the most part... can actually be worn! [Of course, we all love the crazy, creativity put into couture dresses, but its just refreshing to see actual clothes] Besides the black sheer dresses. I m normally fan of sheer things, and showing of the human body, which is art itself. But to me, the black sheer dress seemed almost, well,trashy, AND cheap!
surprisingly, though, my favorite look also included sheer, but it was only a sheer top, and it covers you in just the right places:
And i just felt the need to add in this dress, since i love the color. Its the only bright yellow garment in the collection:
Overall, i liked the collection quite a bit. It was very practical, yet still completely adorable.
Chanel- As always, the chanel suits where cute and classic. But I am still in awe about the fact that all the model's feet where adorned with... FLATS! It gave off a very stumpy look.
I normally like crazy things, some of these dresses where just to crazy for my taste:
the black dress reminded me of playing dress up as a child, and the white one was just very ill-fitted. [is that a phrase?] and the last was just odd. And reminded me of a Seahorse.
As i said before though, there where some nice, classic yet creative suits, and there where quite a few dresses that i absolutely adored, heres a few:
I'm usually a fan of Christian Lacroix, but i though this season the collection was too awkward and mis-matched. Each outfit made me feel as though they MUST have been designed in the dark. what do you think?
I was a huge fan of the Valentino Final Collection, it seemed to vary quite a bit from outfit to outfit, almost as though he wanted to please everyone with his final collection. All the pastels where stunning, and it was all so ladylike, i loved it all!
In fact, there was only one dress i wasn't completely in love with, it had too much of an old fashioned, Souhern Belle, look to it, far to costumy:
Sure, the first few looks where gorgeous, but the collection was very monotanous, and i was soon bored with the repeating cuts, and all the bling. A few Dresses like this would have been great, but it just seemed to be a sparkle overload...
there where also many slightly bedazzled, colorful gowns, but they where for the most part in my opinion, very much a-like. But in every collection there is always at least one dress you have to love, and in the Ellie Saab collection, this is it.
And My Favorite [actually, probably everyone's favorite}:
Christian Dior- I completely loved it! Everything. I was all so colorful, and ll the different silhouettes where magnificent, and don't forget all the intricate beading.
p.s- don't forget the hats, i want one!
Ahh, how nice it would be to be a couture designer. In constant competition to see who can be the most absolute ridiculous, crazy, and weird.
I'd so win in that type of contest.
