The Paris Fall 2011 Couture Shows are here again and beauty is among us. I am totally loving what I have seen so far. Alexis Mabille and Christian Dior brought the dramatics. If you are looking for a fantastical ball gown, stop there first. Anne Valerie Hash and Bouchra Jarrar showed the finer side of suiting for women by experimenting with neutral and bright shades. Giambattista Valli fell into a gap in between the other four designers by designing cake-like couture in a white, black, and pink palette.
Now we must talk about Bill Gaytten. He worked under Galliano at Dior, and now with Galliano gone, he can design the couture the way he wants too. Some or not thrilled with his designs. While I think they are great, I do feel like there were some things that could have been edited out of the collection. Also KUDOS to Anne Valerie Hash for using all black models. How did you feel about the collections so far? We still have a bit to go. What are you most looking forward too? Photos from Style.com.
