Spring 2011 Couture Week Part Deux!

Amongst the soft colours and feminine floaty dresses at Spring 2011 Couture Week, there was also an array of edgy black looks, hot reds and with tough girl chicness.

Look on and be inspired:

Monsieur Gaultier had anarchism and rebellion in mind for his couture show with models strutting his designs with sky high mohawks. Black was the shade of choice for the collection with pops of red, blue, white, ruffles and sparkle. This tough look to the left, emphasizes the waist with the A-line skirt and thick embroidered belt creating a silhouette that takes a nod to the 1940's. Combined with an embellished choker, this is a futuristic yet classic look reminiscent of 1982's Blade Runner. The look to the right, is a lightweight black sequin suit. If you want relaxed and glamorous, this look is all that you need. Adding to the rebellious, punk theme of the collection, is the low v-neck and sheer fabric of the inside blouse. Oh la la!

The 1940's and 1950's were known for its ladylike looks and haute couture designs, which is exactly what John Galliano had in mind when designing the latest Christian Dior couture collection that was dedicated to Christian Dior's iconic illustrator, Rene Gruau. This line was full of the very sophisticated and never out of style defined waistline silhouette with A-line and pencil skirts galore. The lovely look to the left offers a slightly relaxed look with the draped sleeves and bubble hem and the loosely tied waist adds a casualness to the stylish look. The look to the right, has the classic silhouette of Dior's New Look. The long gloves and ruffled neckline are the cherry on top of this look, and let's not forget the poised red lips.

I loooove Elie Saab and this collection was to die for. Gowns adorned with rosettes, flowing chiffon, ruffles and pleating in blush, green, silver, black and red, glided along the runway. If you are looking for a gorgeous show-stopping gown that will have everyone in awe, look no further than this collection. With Valentine's Day just two weeks away, who could resist a gorgeous gown in luscious red? The look to the left, softly drapes over the shoulder revealing a sheer lace panel with a thin belt that leads into an open flowing skirt full of movement. The look to the right, has a skirt decorated with romantic lace panels and a bodice with a delicately pleated neckline. Romantic, feminine and beautiful at its best. Love it!
