Of course, Chanel. It is amazing to know that paper was the inspiration here. The headpieces are out of this world. Good work, Karl.

i love the short, fingerless gloves. and i am still in awe by the head pieces.

Christian Dior. Galliano is such an artist. I think that is what makes couture, and not just Dior, so incredible. You really see the fashion as art and not clothes, which is a beautiful thing.

this is really wonderful. so wearable. i think it is going to be used a lot in upcoming editorial spreads.

For some reason, I got really carried away with Christian Lacroix. I mean, after you see it, it becomes obvious. So many bows. The tights. The flowers. So I picked five…
