fall 2009 haute couture part I

i usually do entries in parts when it comes to fashion weeks, and there are usually more than one collection featured in each part...but i just couldn't resist posting the first haute couture collection that i was able to review! i am so in love with it, hopefully you like it too. and even if you don't, i'd love to hear your opinions. please rate/recommend/subscribe/comment!

john galliano decided to show this collection at the christian dior headquarters in the avenue montaigne, the same way these collections were shown in the 1950s. of course i absolutely LOVED this collection! i am a bonafide dior girl. oh my gosh, the details were as exquisite as ever, the colors were as vibrant as possible and the styling was tasteful, smart and undeniably sexy. beautiful ballooning skirts with constructed draping paired with bras and delicate stockings or peplum belts paired with cinched jackets with beautiful portrait scoop necks made up this divine haute couture collection. i loved the shoes and the makeup: heavy pinup. and i am in absolute love with the last look. it is such a magnificent wedding dress! look at the beautiful blush nude bodice with a twist on the traditional sweetheart neckline. the tulle skirt is magnificent. i want to wear this dress so badly! and look at that beautiful and perfectly pink frock to the far left! the appliques are breathtaking, the skirt is so voluptuous...oh my, i don't even know what to type. and doesn't chanel iman (third from left) look absolutely perfect in her magenta and black get up? and i love her hat! all of the hats (most if not all of them feathered) in this collection really. these hats can totally make a look.and back to chanel iman's ensemble: i really love the sheer skirt look that is on so many runways. i wish i could wear it out and still feel decent! i hope all of the other haute couture shows are this exciting!

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.
