Paris - Spring/Summer 2007 - Selections from days 5 and 6

Stella McCartney - More of the sackdress phenomenon, but these are cuter than most. The rompers are a bit awkward though.

Emanuel Ungaro - Definitely love or hate, but I like the wacky Moschino-like print pairings (or late 90s Versus, if you will) and the Dynasty-esque jackets and minis. The expensive divorcee version of this whole 80s thing.

Celine - Trenches. Sheerness.

Yves Saint Laurent - The runway! Field of flowers! Gingham! Fishnets! Ruffles! Sorta-frumpy jumpsuits...the skirts and jackets were nice though.

Chanel - Pleats! Black and White! Classic plaid tweeds remade into a sexy farmgirl buttondown. I'm going to ignore the seriously wtf men's looks.

Sonia Rykiel - Cozy chunky clean white sweater dresses and cardigans, decorated with big knit flowers and smiling models. Weird handy-craft ruffles and wooly mammoth coats.

Christian LaCroix - Very serious dressing, even though moments were quite wacky. There just doesnt seem to be any actual humor behind it.

Alexander McQueen - Drama! Corsets, laces (though one freeeeeaky see-thru belled catsuit), razor-sharp tailoring, bubbles and poufs and tulles, and some over-sized hips.
