Haute Couture SS11

Suffering from lack of anything to do, I went to look for some more trends. Of course, I have to let you all in on my findings.
1. Couture jail bird
Full-length gown with horizontal stripes, imitating prison uniforms. Boat neck with pointed shoulders and ruffled tail. Seen at Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture SS11.
2. Couture denim
The pinnacle of couture casualwear. The everyday pair of jeans is transformed into oplulent, lilac-blue skinny jeans which are handwashed and trimmed with jewel buttons running to mid-calf, military-style. Seen at Chanel Haute Couture SS11.
3. Phoenix rising
This one really caught my eye. I'm talking about a cropped open jacket with extreme shoulders. It is covered in golden scales that form an armored-feather look. Seen at Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture SS11.
4. Shed skin gown
A stealth gray column gown in is sliced mid-thigh to reveal a layer of glistening red. Seen at Armani Privé Haute Couture SS11.
5. Red-eyed maven
This look is more of a concern with makeup. Let me paint you a picture: arched red brows, alabaster skin and ice blue eye shadow. Lips painted in the same rich red emphasize the beautiful effect. Can you guess who thought this one up? John Galliano, clearly. This look was seen at the Christian Dior Haute Couture SS11 show.
The shoe of the day is the braided straw and wood platform with polka-dot bow from France, between the years 1940-1945.
The faded florals and pastels at BCBG add romance and allure to any outfit. Go take a look at their spring collection!

XOXO,
Nina
