Haute Couture FW05 Day 2

Wow, the Haute Couture shows are truly amazing. Each piece is just so intricately beautiful that it fully shows the creativity and skill of the artists of the fashion world. And the Givenchy and Christian Lacroix shows this season is an excellent example of this quality.

To start off with, the Givenchy show. I LOVED how Riccardo Tisci, their new artistic director, made the show not in the form of a runway, but as if one was walking through a museum and viewers are just surrounded by models wearing clothes in different settings-very artsy! And the pictures are very artsy as well. Definitely very innovative! As for the clothes, Tisci used a mostly a pallette of black and a creamish white color vogue.co.uk calls oyster. And the effect? Elegance and style.

That has got to be one of the most stylishly modern poofy jackets I've seen so far. So poofy yet so chic. And I LOVE the black dresses. So sleek. Their pose is just soo graceful too! And is that an asian model I see wearing couture?


These oyster pieces are beeeeeautiful as well. Combined with their very graceful and natural looking poses (although I am sure a LOT of throught has gone into these poses) and the background, it is just oh-so-romantic!

While Tisci focused on black and oyster, Lacroix used a vast array of colors and along with the rich details of beads, laces, corsets, flounces and satin. The result was a very vibrant and irresistibly delicious show.

Hm. . doesn't the volume, the fur, the hat and rich coloring give it a bit of a russian flair as well?

Sleek black, poofy black, both are just as gorgeous and fascinating with lacroix.

Wow, I'm in awe of the intricate detail and skill involved in the creation of these two magnificient pieces.

I usually prefer the sleek and chic, but these two are just SO amazingly brilliant and colorful that I can't help but love them. In fact I LOVE this whole collection. One can just see russian princesses dressed in these stunningly vibrant and rich pieces to balls and wherever russian princesses go. You simply must check out the rest of the collection here!

The red dress was one of my favorite pieces from Haute Couture week. Nice to see the quality materials at Lacroix.

I found it interesting how they made each model look the same with similar headpieces and eye makeup, it seemed to make each different outfit stand out all the more.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
