Tonight I bring you a sample of my favorite spring 2009 couture collections.
I fell in love with neutral colors featured by Elie Saab. The dresses were ruffled and beaded. It was a really feminine, yet strong collection. It was amazing as usual.
John Paul Gaultier’s collection was very 80’s looking. It also looked like it was inspired by architecture. It reminded me of Madonna’s “Express Yourself” video. Maybe he was using his previous work for his inspiration. Either way it was hot, and his show featured two black models, Sessilee Lopez and Jourdan Dunn. Awesome!!
John Galliano really did himself up this time. The Dior spring 2009 collection was amazing. Galliano was inspired by the old Flemish masters. You could see that right away with the detailing in the big bold sleeves and luxurious hats. He also had some New Look dresses in the mix as well. The colors were vibrant and the beading and ruffles were terrific. Even though some of the dresses looked like Lil Bo Peep, I could dig it.
