Paris Haute Couture Week Spring 2013: Day 3

We’re jumping in halfway through Paris Couture Week, but better late than never, I always say! Fashion lovers go wild for couture week most of all: nothing gets our pulses racing quite like the promise of seeing the impeccably-cut, fantastical creations of the most extraordinary designers in the world marched down the runway for the very first time. Today we’re ogling the likes of Atelier Versace, Christian Dior, Alexis Mabille, Giambattista Valli, and Chanel, right this way… Keep reading »

This just in: runway beauty be cray, especially when it comes to couture week. Raf Simons’s lovely cream-colored gowns and floral frocks at Christian Dior were offset by some serious bedazzling of the mouth. I’d usually gamble that this is the kind of look that won’t see life off the runway come spring, but then again, we are living in the age of Ke$ha. [Image via Style.com]

The Cyborg-Styled Looks From The On Aura Tout Vu Couture Show

As Paris couture week rolls on, we thought we’d take a moment to look at a lesser-known entry into the couture-o-verse. That would be On Aura Tout Vu, the French label whose name translates to “You think you’ve seen it all.”

Their offerings this season skew toward the dramatic, the Gaga-rific, the over-the-top and way out there. And the styling at their runway show? Full of cyborg-ish details and outlandish chimeras.

This latest collection was titled “Fishing for Compliments,” and is supposed to read like an underwater scene. Personally, I think it seems more influenced by “Snow White and the Huntsman,” but perhaps I’m missing some obvious connection between the fish scales the collection’s supposed to convey and the armor I interpret.

Either way, it’s all very costume-y and dramatic. Take a look after the jump.

All The Looks From Raf Simons First Christian Dior Show

Whoo! Guys, it’s Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week! Designer Raf Simons debuted his first collection with Christian Dior this week, to a mind-blowing array of celebrities and designers. The show was set in a series of rooms covered in wall-to-wall blue orchids, white mimosas and roses, which gave the impression of being inside a Rose Bowl float. Anna Wintour loved it though, as did some of the other vaunted guests, including Marc Jacobs, Marion Cotillard, and Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz. Critical reactions to the collection have been for the most part positive — but what do you think? Do Raf’s looks live up to Dior’s reputation? Or does the show fall flat?

12 High-Fashion Nipple Moments At Paris Couture Week

The French are a kinky bunch of folks that don’t really have the kind of hangups about nakedness that, say, Americans do. So it should be expected that a nip slip at Paris Couture Week is not only expected, but built right into the garments themselves. See, couture clothing isn’t so much about covering the body as it is using the body to enhance the glorious fabrics and construction. A bare nipple is about as essential to a Zahia Dehar or Julien Fournie design as the needle and thread that wove it. Here are 12 high-fashion nipple moments (so far) from Paris Couture Week. It is NSFW — unless, of course, you live in France and wear see-through shirts to board meetings.

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 18 Favorite Looks From Day 3

Julie just about summed it up in her favorite looks from the first two days of Haute Couture Week when she said, “The Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy.” As a fashion-loving lady, there are so many things in its spectrum that excite me, but nothing makes me salivate so much as couture. Today, the last day of the shows, is all about the couture jewelry (we’re talking Dior Joaillerie, Chanel Joiallerie, and Van Cleef & Arpels), so let’s have a look at yesterday’s headliners: Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino, and Elie Saab.

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look. The first day of couture week featured shows from Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior (currently helmed by Bill Gaytten), Chanel, Versace, and Alexis Mabille — and they did not disappoint.
