Haute Couture

Hi bloggers! From January 24th to January 28th it was the Spring 2010 Haute Couture week in Paris! The shows were all wonderfully amazing, and I wanted to share my favorites with you!

#1. Chanel - A mixture with of futuristic tones and romantic feels, the Chanel Couture collection was an amazing collection of detail and shine. It focused on silvers and pastels, and featured no black or gold, a first for Karl Lagerfeld. It was definitely my favorite of the season, especially since silver and pastels are two of my favorite things (I really don't wear gold!)


#2. Christian Dior - For this collection, John Galliano was inspired by the Charles James gowns at the Costume Institute at the MET. With the feel of a woman who rides, the pieces feature top hats and veils and beautiful cuts. I love the vintage feel of it all, and all the red really stands out when pastels are taking over the runway!


#3. Elie Saab - I loved the dream-like feel of Elie Saab's gowns in this couture collection. The dresses were all romantic, in the pale pastels that we've been seeing on the runway but with a bit more dusty tones. Also, he decided not to use jewelry and natural hair/make-up. So the dresses stand out even more.

  11. I adore all 3 of those brands. Chanel was definitely futuristic and i loved it. Christian Dior was over the top and gorgeous as usual and I love the horse riding theme. The Elle Saab dresses were beautifully done and I'd love to play dress up in some of those if I had the chance :) Wonderful blog I'm following :)
