Haute Couture Week Spring 2005 Kicks Off

So Haute Couture Week has arrived in Paris, and I'm sure all of you are just breathless in anticipation to see some of these one of a kind works of art. For they are surely works of art more then pieces of clothing, when only 3000 women in the world can afford to wear them. Although some are more artsy then others. So we'll kick off with the wearable haute coutures of the day.

Valentino has created gowns inspired by different countries, from Seville to Hong Kong. And they are truly exquisite creations, one of my favourites collections so far. Here is Naomi Campbell in a gown inspired by Milan.

Butterfly also seems to be making a come back, featured in Valentino. . .

.. . and Stephane Saunier, who is one of the selected 6 designers invited by the French Couture Federation to unveil their collections this week. Aren't these gowns just gorgeous?

As for the true "works of art" (read: not for wearing) there is John Galliano's collection for Dior. And judging from the expression on the model's face, this gown is obviously not for wearing.

Not to be left out, Armani launched his first haute couture collection called "Priye", which is also "works of art". I mean, who would wear that thing on their head in public? Not that there is anything wrong with unwearable clothing. From an aesthetic point of view, they are all masterpieces. Watch out for the rest of the haute couture collections coming out this week by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Christian Lacroix, Jean-Paul Gaultier and various other designers!

Ooo... Those dresses are gorgeous, and somewhat out of the world. The Armani one is so pretty. I had wondered how Armnai's normally sleek and simple style can transform into couture, but wow, he's done it. The Armani dress remains sleek but more glamorous than his designs before. I'm sure its wearable, after you take off the thing on the model's head.

On his return to Scotland he devoted himself to the management and improvement of his estate. He enclosed his lands, erected comfortable farmhouses and offices, granted leases to his tenants, encouraged them to provide improved implements of husbandry, and to cultivate on a large scale potatoes and turnips, which had hitherto been regarded as mere garden plants. He also set himself to cultivate improved breeds of horses, cattle, and sheep.

The Governor-General can exercise the Crown's prerogative powers (such as reviewing cases of injustice and making appointments of Cabinet ministers, ambassadors and other key public officials)[61] and in rare situations, the reserve powers (the power to dismiss a Prime Minister, dissolve Parliament or refuse the Royal Assent of a bill into law).[62] The powers of the Queen and the Governor-General are limited by constitutional constraints and they cannot normally be exercised without the advice of Cabinet.

came into conflict with his guardian. Mortimer knew his position in relation to the king was precarious and subjected Edward to disrespect and humiliation. The tension increased after Edward and Philippa, who had married on 24 January 1328, had a son on 15 June 1330.[17] Eventually, Edward decided to take direct action against Mortimer. Aided by his close companion William Montagu and a small number of other trusted men, Edward took Mortimer by surprise at Nottingham Castle on 19 October 1330. Mortimer was executed and Edward III’s personal reign began.
