Paris Fashion Week Favorites So Far

If you were looking for traces of Penelope Cruz's ultra feminine Oscar dress at Balmain, it's here with a 2009 edge. These are clothes for the modern, detail-oriented woman who presents herself with a prickly yet girly edge.I'm completely unfamiliar with Akris, but I love the sexy sophistication of these pieces. I hope these dresses take off when collections hit the stores in September.
The dresses at Giambattista Valli were nice, but the coats were top notch.
I wish I could wear the slim, shiny pants from Karl Lagerfeld, but they are not for the hippy. I could wear the futuristic coats and be a space princess.
Usually my complaints about Greecian draping refer to a dress that is essentially pretty fabric pulled pinned and belted around the female form. Pretty? Yes. Original? No. Viktor & Rolf's Fall/Winter show was inspired by Greecian draping, only they were thinking of the fabrics we see represented in marble. Amazing!
