Hello my darlings! I cannot be the only one whose instagram has been invaded by the most beautiful sequins and intricate, dazzling embellishments. You know what that means? Yes that's right, it's Paris Haute Couture week! I have been quite busy these days with work and my thesis, but I thought it would still be fun to gather my favorites of the week 'as told by instagram'. (Seriously, I wish I could record my posts in audio format because now you are missing out on the Ryan Seacrest impersonation I'm doing in my head while writing this.)
Well, without further a do, let's get on with it!
Ellie Saab was my ultimate favorite of the couture week. I have already picked out a wedding dress for myself and my bridesmaids dresses for my friends' weddings. (I have suddenly become very interested in buying lottery tickets...) When you see these dresses you will understand why I am so desperate to get my hands on them. Also let us please all pray that pom pom sleeves become a real trend and us mortals can wear them too. Amen.
Oh, Chanel. Chanel is the epitome of couture and I just knew that Chanel would not let me down. Get ready to 'ooh' and 'aah'. Also one can simply not leave out the iconic dress of Lily Rose Depp. Also, guys, if Chanel did pom pom sleeves too, I think we may have some hope here...
One could not help but notice Dior this week, as Dior kicked things off with the amazing Dior Ball, that everyone worth mentioning attended. This year Dior took a step towards fantasy with the beautiful theme of an enchanted forest. Floaty nudes were mixed into strong floral designs and black silhouettes, weaving together a beautiful couture collection.
If the nature had a queen, she would no doubt wear Georges Hobeika. Hey, Georges, where can I sign up to be your flower queen?
Oh, ruffle! The victorian barbie goes couture queen. If I was a rich house wife, I would float around my mansion in Giambattista Valli all day, sipping my 'just right' margarita. Maybe I would also take a ride on my horse to see the train of ruffles and color explode behind me as the wind would get caught on my dress. Note that this was also Olivia Palermo's favorite.
