Haute Couture– Jean Paul Gaultier, Elie Saab, Armani Prive
Jean Paul Gaultier
I still can’t get over JPG’s Spring/Summer 07 couture show which has a religious inspiration… I was really anticipating this show.
I like JPG’s flamboyant and very stylish clothes. The amount of creativity he injects into each and every piece of design is really praise-worthy plus he can mix art with luxury with fashion so well. JPG’s the only one who can go really crazy and outrageous with his designs but never get punished for it. He’s also outspoken & daring in terms of presentation of his ideas. By the way, I love that coat on Lily Cole, I so want to get it!!!
His designs are clearly targeting red-carpet loving celebrities as he doesn’t use as much artistic influence or drama. Glamour-wise, this collection is really great for dressing up and looking good at formal events. Resident Elie Saab fans like Beyonce & Halle Berry are sure going to love it.
I think these two gowns are really gorgeous, especially the one on the left. Huge puffy tiers are really hot right now and I can picture any celebrity wearing it on the red carpet!
He included a lot of colours into his designs this time, that’s a major surprise but the style is still very Armani. Who knows that he can do neon colours so well? I think this collection’s going to appeal to a lot more customers as the looks have gone a little bit more youthful. They can mix into any one of the Emporio Armani collections and still not get spotted.
Last day of the couture showcase will see Valentino churning out his latest designs.
