While some may say that Haute Couture has seen its glory days, there's still no better place than the runway at HC shows for some truly inspirational flights of creativity!
Here are some of our favourite looks from the fabulous week of fashion that is Paris Haute Couture. We focused on beauty of course, but had to throw in some gowns and shoes as well, seeing as the Oscars are right around the corner!
EYES continued to be in focus: Atelier Versace with an updated version of a blended smokey (greasy metallic finish extended into an exaggerated cat-eye); Chanel's graphic and stylized wings matched the geometrical Princess Leia chignon hair-dos.
STATEMENT EYEBROWS: The House of Schiaparelli contrasted romantically draped printed gowns with voluminous crimped hair and dramatic eyebrows - either bleached white or stark black.
LIPS - NUDE OR CARMINE: The models at Dior sashayed down the runway with kohl lined eyes and nude lips, but the carmine lipped beauties were what stayed in our mind's eye long after the show was over.
SHOES TO DANCE IN: There's a reason everybody scrambles for the front row at fashion shows - how else would you get up close and personal with all the amazing footwear that accompanies the fashion!
These cork soled clogs at Chanel, two toned Dior pumps and Elie Saab's trendy boots are the ones that got our vote.
FROU-FROU GOWNS: And before we go, we thought of sharing with you the image of these unforgettable gowns from the Italian house of Giambattista Valli - heavenly cascades of frothy chiffon, long trains and cascading organza... sigh...
Very soon it will be the Oscars and we cant wait to see who will be wearing what from all the delicious offering that was on display at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.
That's all for now, my lovelies.... xoxo
