Paris Fashion Week - Day 5c

Akris - So hiply elegant. Not the slightest bit, appropriate girl in the office. Tissue-thin evening wear - photo 34 is jaw-dropping.

Alexander McQueen - Breathtakingly cute. So many different skirts, nipped-waist jackets, fabrics from another time (many different times). Baby doll ballerinas and manga girls.

Chanel - Ooooh supermodels! And matching tweed ties for tweed suits! Coatdresses and capris, 80s French girls, gorgeous laces. Beautiful and classic and cool.

Chloe - crunchy-glam-kinda boring. It's like what a model wears to look like she's not trying to hard or stuck on herself. She doesnt fool anyone.

Christian Lacroix - Seriously toned down Lacroix. It's very pretty, just not what I expect from him. This seems more like Chloe to me. The multi-colored and mismatching fabrics on the gowns is lovely though...very muted and not overwhelming.

John Galliano - Farm girls, bonnets, gold newsprint...hmm. But beautiful coats, seriously cool dresses and bikinis. It's a tossup. Oh wait, the finale dress. Mmmm, I could eat it.

Lanvin - I have a crush on that first dress, and the Audrey-esque dresses are nice, but I could leave the jackets.

Louis Vuitton -

Martin Margiela -

Nina Ricci -

Rick Owens -

Rochas -

Sonia Rykel -

Valentino -

YSL Rive Gauche -
