Paris - Autumn/Winter 2007-8, Days 5-6

Stella McCartney - The first half was a little bland. Oversized shoulders on christmas sweaters and rather asexual (though mini) suits. Things started to look up with the advent of the party dresses, but ended far too quickly.

Emanuel Ungaro - Ohhh la la! Disco slink, sexy puffy jackets, grecian draped minidresses - a sexier Sophia Kokosalaki. The coziest fur pullover I've ever seen.

Celine - The perfectly icy Parisian woman. All-business wool or satin dresses with defined waists, an untouchably sexy black suit with black satin shirt.

Haider Ackermann - Painted on leggings, cropped 80s style jackets, lifeless dresses. All very Tilda Swinton-y. Weird yet boring.

YSL Rive Gauche - Elegant, meticulously put-together, but I feel a tad too *modern day* Catherine Deneuve. The sweet minidress take on le smoking, is wonderful though.

Jasmine Di Milo - So much going on, but so sexy and sleek. Definitely cool-girl. Poufy party dresses - maybe a tad over the top, but still fun, and slim little strapless numbers - just right.

Chanel - Perfect tweed suit dresses, borderline obnoxious leather and plaid separates, and gorgeous beribboned and be-laced cocktail dresses with funky little bib necklaces.

Sonia Rykiel - Dreamy sweaterdresses and much-too-sexy laces, ruffles. It's not hard to get excited again for Fall.

Giambattista Valli - White turtlenecks under sexy manly black suits, low-cut sweaters, and the most charming ruffles I've seen. Necklines and bodices and just elegant.

Rue du Mail - Serious little suits and dresses with funny little tipped or rose-gathered hems.

Bruno Pieters - Rounded hems, somber suits, glamourous 50s gold strapless.

Alexander McQueen - Molded bodices of the most impeccable tailoring, molded bodices actually made of sculpture. Fantastically nightmarish hoods and fabrics and Cleopatra-eyes. Dark dreamy.
