Haute Couture Week!!

I've been so busy, I didn't realize that Couture Week was happening right under my nose!! After getting the appropriate rundown from Elle.com, I've picked my favorite looks:

Although at first glance, she might look like a three-tiered wedding cake, I really like this! The layers here really show off Saab's skills as a designer- if she wasn't careful the model would have looked squat, but she looks incredibly tube-like, and elongated. It doesn't hurt to be 5'9" either, but that's beside the point.

Never one to dissapoint, The House of Dior has created yet a another show-stopping couture season. Paying homage to Dior's iconic "New Look" of 1947 which put the designer on the map, the silhouette is nipped in the waist, creating a flattering hourglass shape. To add to the glamour, and to make a fresh statment, the clothes have been infused with an obvious eastern influence, with bright colors and cherry blossoms adorning the models' garb.
