Haute Couture SS07 III

The final wrapup of the SS07 Haute Couture shows; the last dazzle.

Armani Prive

The most obvious thing about this show was that everything was silver, or at least some part of the couture was silver. The second most obvious thing is the Indian theme -Indian influenced cuts and turbans.

Other than that, it really is just a dazzling show of gorgeous, elegant dresses and suits.

That's such a pretty, cute cocktail dress (on the left), which sort of reminded me of Marchesa, although this dress is obviously fancier. And the dress on the right is the Armani-chic take on the Indian dress.

Ahhh... the simple, beautiful flowing wedding dress.

Jean Paul Gaultier

While the Armani Prive collection was certainly lovely to look at, I personally found the Gaultier collection somewhat more fun to look at. Maybe because I'm not of the age to wear businesswear yet, and am more into the haute-casual-couture, if that makes sense. Anyways, I'm just going to state the obvious: this collection is very religion-inspired. Not a particularly inspiring topic to me, but Gaultier pulled together quite a lot of fascinating pieces.

First there are the halos. I love Stam's whole look (most right) -it's so beautiful and haunting.

Then there are the slightly darker looks. It's so cool how the halo on the left and the dress on the right look like the windows seen in churches.

Then there are the couture that are so artistic that I don't quite understand. Oh well, this is haute couture.

And finally, though not my style, it is a really pretty dress, with the cape and sheer material. And of course, that crazy hair and halo!

Alas, we'll have to wait another six months to see the next round of Haute Couture collections. Or perhaps we'll see a few of these dresses at the award shows? We'll see.

Wow that Armani wedding dress is STUNNING. Perfectly tailored with just the right amount of adornment. The rest of the collection looks pretty good too, a more modern twist to his usual elegant and sleek style. And that short cocktail dress is just adorable!

Not so hot on the JPG collection, not quite my thing. But it was really cool how the whole collection followed the theme so well. And that silver dress in the middle of the first JPG picture is just beautiful.

hey! long time reader here, first time commenter. i seem to be in a bind, and i know you guys like to post about what catches you, but i'm looking for leg warmers - cute ones to wear with flats for the winter. the only ones i could find were sold out ones at hollister and abercrombie. do you know where one would find cute ones? and which ones are the best?

i know you're busy and are not dj's taking requests, so either way, i love your blog! keep updating, it's amazing!

I found the religious theme anything but boring. My favourites are the stain-glass one sleeve dress and the one Lily Cole's got on. Superb.

Gaultier remains the undisputed enfant terrible of French fashion

Lily Cole really did look like a religious icon on the catwalk.
