Fall 2014 Couture

Giambattista Valli had birds, flowers, and stripes in an array of friendly colors. With this much retro infused fun in one place, for a few seconds, I felt like Pushing Daisies was back on the air.

Valli sated my lust for stripes, and Armani Prive catered to my polka dot desire, from the spotted veils, to the beaded evening gowns. While this wasn't a wildly inventive show, it was still beautiful.

The Schiaparelli revival is only a year old, but so far the new head designer is doing an excellent job of infusing 1930s drama with Schiaparelli's special brand of charm and playfulness.

Ulyana Sergeenko favored beautiful pleating. (Love that gown on the right, but I'm afraid it would look crazy on anyone but Cate Blanchett, the clothes whisperer.)

Love the romantic Grecian influence at Valentino. I'll have to make myself a wrap belt like that.

Zuhair Murad used textures inspired by architecture for his collection. Love that black dress.

Couture week is for taking artistic chances and showing off your skills, unless you are Elie Saab. If you are Elie Saab, you never alter the pretty lest someone snags your title as the Red Carpet King. (Zuhair Murad is coming for you, Saab.)

We're most likely to see Saab, Murad, Armani, and Valentino on the red carpet, so who do you want to see them on?
