Hedi Slimane’s first Saint Laurent Paris SS 13 Collection has finally debuted. If there was a battle between this collection and Raf Simons’ Dior collection…I think Hedi Slimane won. While Raf Simons’ collection was good, Slimane’s was great.I am tired of the boho trend, but this collection was boho, urban cowgirl is the best way possible. The slim pantsuits and slim stilettos were very sexy. The flowy printed peasant dresses and fringed suede brought new meaning to the term the Wild Wild West. The bow and tassled collars with the giant hats made the women look like it was disco night at the saloon. It was great to see him move from menswear to womenswear. I can’t wait to see what he is going to show next season because I know it is going to be great. He totally exceeded all of my expectations.
Paris Fashion Week Fall 2011 has bid us adieu. I feel like this fashion month has gone by soo slowly because so much has happened. It was only a month ago to the day that I was flying into New York for fashion week And now Paris Fashion Week, with all its rumors, intrigue, mysteries, and scandals is over…finally. *Cue…Deep…Sighs…Now! Oh, but while we are on the subject of rumors and such, apparently it is a known fact that Riccardo Tisci will leave Givenchy for Dior!!!! I saw it isn’t a known fact until a press release has been sent out, but whatever. Whoever knows the truth probably isn’t saying anything at all. Duh!!! If this is true, who will take over Givenchy? Aye carumba!
Anywho! I decided to do something different for these last few shows. In place of my usual
pitiful photo collages, I have brought you fashion videos because videos are more fun and entertaining. Thank me later.
Let’s start with Yves Saint Laurent! I love the suiting with the cropped pant or short skirt that Stefano Pilati did. It was a good mix of masculine and feminine. His use of fur was fabulous as well. I loved the white fur coat and the coat before it with the black fur hood. I also loved the white section at the end. I don’t usually wear all white, just a few pieces here and there, but I would wear that white tux. They say that Pilati may be out soon at YSL, but the higher ups at the label said recently that that is a lie. Let’s hope so, because I like his work at YSL.
I would say that I am a bit of all of them. What do you think of these collections? I love them all and am totally fantasizing about filling up my closet with these clothes. UGH! One day my Paris fashion dreams will come true! Photos from Style.com.

URGHHH!!! I am still dealing with blogrolling issues,but I made a new header. So YAY! I need something to brighten up this rainy, dreary day.
UPDATE: So I got my blogroll to work again, but I am tempted to delay the adding of new blog sites to it because it gave me so many problems. Oh well.
