Best of the 2014 Fall Couture

Out of all of the fashion weeks that occur every season the key week that I eagerly await and legit get giddy about are the Haute Couture fashion shows that happen during Couture Fashion Week.  If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen this photo or even this one.  Both of these mottoes speak to how fashion is not what defines your style, rather it’s the perfect accent or accessory that helps to tell your style story.  The couture shows are in my opinion the most unfiltered resource of creative fashion energy that allows ones true style to have a megaphone of a mouthpiece in declaring to the world, “I’ve arrived!”.

While there were an umpteen amount of jaw dropping, drool worthy looks from the couture shows there were picturesque moments where the fashions told the unsaid story of the designer and were just plain brilliant.  Check out my top key moments from Couture Fashion Week!

ValentinoValentino’s stunning juxtaposition of insanely intricate detailed beadwork with a sharp contrast in simple gladiator sandals speaks volumes.

Marco Zanini 'Central Park' at SchiaparelliMarco Zanini’s ‘Central Park’ at Schiaparelli and featuring none other than squirrels and rats (yup, those are rats)

Maison Martin MargielaBecause with Maison Martin Marigela Artisanal Collection one should always expect a meaningful takeaway and why not a history lesson?

Giambattista ValliTwo words: Giambattista Valli.  Enough said. No seriously, the finale skirts are EVERYTHING.

Chanel Concrete DressConcrete. Yup, you read that correctly.  Chanel isn’t opposed to being inspired by any fabrication and that includes what is used to make sidewalks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Couture Week: Spring 2014 Red Carpet Picks

After last week’s Haute Couture Fashion week in Paris where designers showcased the most opulent and luxe fashions we can only dream about wearing for Spring 2014.

Armani Prive gives life back to old hollywood glamour by dazzling with Swarovski studded bodices, intricate cut-outs, and all while wearing head wrap tightly bound in crystals with.  Valentino were inspired by the age old tradition of opera and offered up an endless parade of pitch-perfect arias full of intricate beading and stunning embellishments.   Atelier Versace gives new life to the “the leg” with a plethora of new options in a refreshing new approach to draping by incorporating a masterful pleating detail that gives the illusion of a cinched waist and legs that go on for miles.

I’ve rounded up my top choices for gowns that I believe we will definitely see grace the biggest red carpet event of the year and be on every Oscars Red Carpet ‘best dressed’ list:
