Paris - SPRING/SUMMER 2006 - Valentino to YSL

I cant get Gwen's "Harajuku Girls" out of my head while viewing these...

Valentino - I'm quite the fan of ankle-length pants (though mainly because my clothes are fairly ill-fitting) and with girlish blouses and flats, I cant think of an easier Spring work wardrobe. Along with the usual full circle skirts and a mini-er version of the boxing champion belts. The florals bored me a bit, but the black and white gowns are gorge.

Veronique Branquinho - I love the nighttime landscape prints and the cool-girl understated chic. And black leather fingerless gloves. Oooooh.

Viktor & Rolf - Ha! The inverse of each of the evening looks is almost as fantastic as the correct one. Disco-fabulous with slinky satins and over-the-top ruffles. I'm wondering now why I've always found side-ponytails so disdainful.

Vivienne Westwood - Does rag-tag late 70s punk styling ever get old? Not really. Especially mixed with some bright colors and mesh fabrics.

Yohji Yamamoto - Totally digging the way-too-cool trouser suits, partic in camo. Ooooh and some more Mos Eisley gear. Perfect for Ep3 viewing tonight!

YSL Rive Gauche - Ruffles! Gorgeous suits, hints of safari and Spain - utterly YSL, just toned down and slightly unsexed.
