28 Oscar-Worthy Gowns That Walked The Runway At Paris Couture Week

With the Academy Awards just around the corner, many of the female celebs who will be attending this year’s ceremony — Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita N’yongo, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, etc. — will be looking to the runways this week in Paris, where the Spring 2014 Couture shows are in full swing, for some little ol’ thing to wear. Here are 28 gloriously gorgeous gowns from designers like Christian Dior, Armani Prive, Atelier Versace and Giambattista Valli, that we can imagine catching their eyes.

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Take Paris

The union of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is just the most perfect union of all time (of all time), and I could not be happier with their decision to date and procreate with one another. Good job, you guys! My favorite star-crossed lovers are in Paris right now for Couture Week, so I figured I’d do a little bit of recon and find out what these two have been up to in the City of Lights …

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!

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 Our Favorite Looks From Paris Couture Week

It’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns — garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars. Couture collectors are willing to pony up the big bucks because couture collections are all handmade. We’ve already shown you the new collection from Raf Simons over at Dior, but here are the new looks from Giambattista Valli, Versace, Armani and Chanel. Check back here often for more amazing couture looks.

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.
