Couture’s Final Shows….
Not really that impressed with Valentino.
Overall- it was okay, I just feel that since Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri took on Valentino. It just hasn’t been the same.
Maxine Simoens gave her best shot, and it just kind of looked trashy, very Versace-esque and nothing inspiring. She showed a lot of looks that looked ready to wear, and the collection itself wasn’t really cohesive or themed like most couture shows are. But she gave it her best shot.
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
THANK THE LORD SOMEONE’S COUTURE SHOW WAS BRILLIANT. It was a tribute to Amy Winehouse and it totally captured the late singers persona. The collection was classic rock meets edgy punk with that marilyn sophistication. Bravo.
So impressed. Karli Kloss for Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2012
ELIE SAAB: THE KING OF TEXTURE
As you people know I adore texture… And Elie Saab blows it out of the park every time. This had to have been the best couture collection this season, and he is making such a name for himself. The dressed are always elegant with a touch of sexy. They seem effortless and take on a shape of their own. The color palette was kind of boring, but Elie Saab always has these structured blocks to his runway shows… Here is a set of one color, and now here is a set of another color, and so on. But what is great is that every color is just not a color, it is a texture, a chic sense of provocative sex appeal, but wearable.
I LOOOVED all of the cupcake cocktail silhouette dresses. These muted colors were a great follow up after the bright bold colors he just showed prior. I also feel that whenever he does neutrals, they look so expensive, and so glamourous.
Hello ballet at the Met.
Beautifully done classic’s with a twist. Love it all. Elie Saab can do no wrong, and not only is he the king of texture, he might just be the new Valentino… We just need Christian Siriano to hurry his “fierce” ass up and take over Dior and then I think I will have my faith restored in Couture.
