Spring 2013 Couture - Oops!

I was just trying to find a post in my drafts folder on Blogger, and I discovered that I forgot to ever hti publish on my post about the Spring '13 couture shows!  Oops!  So, this is a bit late, but I thought I might as well go ahead and put it out there anyway!

I looooooove couture runway shows! It's always fun to see what the designers come up with when they pull out all the stops! Here's what's been on the runway this (*cough* LAST) month!

The Alexis Mabille collection reminded me a bit of a few seasons ago when Black Swan was a thing, and so there were a ton of ballet-inspired looks. Since I'm into refashioning old clothes into something new, I drew a lot of inspiration from this! The whole collection was filled with fun textures and shapes, so much fun to look at!

This dress (also Alexis Mabille) reminded me of Peaches n Cream Barbie. Who else had her?

As much as I enjoy Karl Lagerfeld...

All things Chanel felt like they were made for Helena Bonham Carter to wear to an awards show.

Not a surprise, but I loved the whole Elie Saab collection. I can't even imagine the work that went into the construction of these gowns!

This Jean Paul Gaultier look!

I wasn't that into this collection until I looked through the details. This shoe! And the foot painted purple!

I got the biggest kick out of the Ulyana Sergeenko "Americana" collection! I vote it for "best use of burlap on a runway, 2013".

Valentino was just plain dreamy. It's crazy to think about the hundreds of hours of work that went into each piece!

Did you have any favorites?
