Paris Fashion Week Favorites

Five shows, five designers, five looks each. Let's start with my most favorite from Monsieur Elbaz.

Lanvin is always full of feminine silhouettes. The huge pendants seem to be the staple look, along with the hairpiece and fabulous shoes. The colors of the dresses here, as displayed at the end of the show were unique and sublime. Remember the campaign, "I want Lanvin, not diamonds?".

Moving on, I'll present you Yves Saint Laurent with the monochromatic pieces I adore. They had some versions of Le Smoking, elegant white maxi dresses as well as very chic jumpsuits, accessorized with chain belts and chokers.

And there's Haider Ackermann, who has been the talk of the week. Karl wants him to do Chanel, others say he's perfect to be at Dior. Nevertheless, he is clearly a talented man with some magical touch. Look how he produces such masculine yet feminine ensembles incorporating sequins and leather into satin, silk and velvet pieces. The collection is very luxurious but muted. The assymetrism is brilliant, and maybe he's really the genius who will take over Dior. Oh and don't forget the wide crocodile belt.

After Phoebe Philo departs from Chloé, everyone is worshiping Céline. However, for me, I'd go with Hannah MacGibbon's touch of Chloé this season. Céline is just too geometrical and stiff, and that doesn't work for me. Chloé on the other hand, showcased stunning reptile printed blouses and dresses in very relaxed shapes.

Some critics may be disappointed with Balmain this season, but I'm digging their softer take on the usual lots-of-sequins, "destroyed" tops, tight cargos and pointy shoulders.

  9. You can find plenty of approaches to uncover low cost wedding dresses within your neighborhood; your initially reminder is the fact that, never at any time visit a bridal boutique or stall to appear for your dress; you will not capable to locate any robe or bridesmaid dresses that fits your price range. You'll be able to locate dresses in line with your style, however it will expense you a whole lot or you will discover a robe that fits your spending budget, and nevertheless it won't meet up with your several requirements excellent, style, type color or dimension.
