Now that spring/summer Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is behind us, it is time get everything on paper and recap the magical week. Needless to say that everything had to be perfect, from the red carpet to the catwalk, models, makeup and designs. The Haute Couture Fashion Week was not just about the dresses, but also about the whole setting with every detail in its place and that is probably the reason why it had a fairy tale feel to it.
Fashion brands such as Dior, Elie Saab, Chanel, Versace, Valentino, Paul Gautier and more were in charge of making a statement with their most dramatic and bold designs. The houses showed impeccable taste for embroidery, floral patterns and of course, floor length gowns befitting of queens.
Celebrities and fashionistas didn’t think for a second to pass the opportunity to grace the front row and these included American Vogue’s editor in chief, Anna Wintour, mother daughter actress duo, Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson, Keeping up with the Kardashian’s Kris Jenner, actress Kristin Stewart; just to name a few.
Naturally, the Haute Couture fashion is a dream of every model, so it was no surprise seeing household names such as Naomi Campbell and rising stars like Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner take up the stage.
A lot of different designs could have been seen at the fashion week, but the ones that caught are eye were Dior’s 60s inspired designs including ballerina dresses, sequins, floral patterns and the colorful latex legging boots with metal heels which were the talk of the night.
Ralph & Russo gave a shout out to their inspiration, the goddess of spring, with their floor sweeping tulle gowns and the use of embroidery.
Valentino, on the other hand was inspired by “love in its purest form” and showcased a lot of patterns, hand-stitched motifs and the color red, possibly a nod to the upcoming Valentine’s Day, considering the name, we’d say that it was a perfect choice.
Elie Saab and his fairy tale fantasy was yet another eye catcher, Saab remained true to his self as he showcased embroidery and delicate silhouettes, this time his colors of choice were beige, nude, white and black.
Unlike Elie Saab and his delicate princess looks, Donatella Versace was all about bringing sexy and glam back. The Versace dresses accentuated the cut and curves of the models bodies.
