Paris Couture Week is over but a couple of notworthy moments  caught my attention. As Always, Paris showed why it is called the fashion capital of the world . From gorgeous models wearing ssome of the finest gowns to the stage, some of our favorite designers showed us why they are the reference when it comes to haute couture.

At the Alexis Mabille show  (above), it was luxury at its best and the designer showed us how to make haute couture seems effortless. Gorgeous!

At Giambattista Valli, the set was just as amazing as the models walking down the runway.

Victor and Rolf got me shaking my head and asking myself what the heck is going on?  The over the top hair and ballerina shoes worn by the mannequin/ models took me by surprise.

At Chanel, what else did you expect from Sir Karl Lagerfeld. The man knows how to put on a show.

The Frank Sorbier stage for its couture collection was over the top amazing. I am loving this.

Show Review: Dior Couture Fall 13

Dior Couture Fall 13 Collectioon Review

Despite supermodel Jourdan Dunn twitting to her followers that she had been dropped  from walking the runway show for Dior because of her boobs, the show went on in Paris without a glitch. A couple of looks below  left me guessing…

But Raf Simons latest Fall 13 couture collection is descriptive of what couture means to the designer based on his studies of women in Americas, Asia, Europe and Africa as shown with bold colors, motifs and adornments on some the looks below.

The all idea was about freedom, freedom for women who are fortunate to have access to  couture  to make it more accessible to them and give them great fit, choices and less restraint because couture became “something that’s supposed to be restrictive and only for special occasions,” Simons said.

Show Review: Alexis Mabille Couture Fall 13

Paris couture week is in full swing in the city lights. For this fall 13 couture, designer Alexis Mabille was inspired by the nineteenth-century Italian painter Giovanni Boldini. Let’s just say that Mabille’s couture is not for everyone.  I can see a couple of  European royalties in one of his gowns but the average woman not so much. There were a few pieces that I did not like and could not figured out who would wear them. The ombre pants, the big bow, the exaggerated shoulders and sleeves were simply overwhelming for me.

However, I was sold on these beautiful evening gowns (especially the grey satin number below). The silhouette is feminine, very flattering and I love the décolletage. I am pretty sure that many women will agree with me on this one.
