Sophie and I were really excited to see the Stephane Rolland Spring 2010 Couture presentation here in Paris for two reasons.
1. To witness stunning looks walk the runway.
2. To get a glimpse of Cheryl Cole in the front row.
Only one of our wishes came true.
Cheryl Cole is a huge fan of the French designer after she’s been pictured in five of his dresses. Most recently last week at the National Television Awards.
Unfortunately she wasn’t unable to show her support because of work commitments, but we probably wouldn’t have noticed her anyway because we were transfixed on the amazing pieces which were presented to us.
Cocktail dresses spattered with gold and blood red lacquer. Capes billowed as model stormed the runway.
Lean evening gowns had voluminous hems which moved so fluidly on the models.
It wasn’t only the hems that had volume. Hips did too with razor sharp-cut creating a sexy silhouette.
Everyone in the audience was mesmerized by the plexiglass embellishments which made us thing of fossils, especially on the plum gown above.
The pictures are not really doing the pictures justice in my opinion, as it was an amazing collection.
If you think this magnificent Stephane Rolland finale gown is stunning, view the video below to see how beautiful it is in motion, and the details which are totally lost in the picture.
The model needed 2 people to help her adjust the heavily embellished train as she turned.
The designer will be working on a ready-to-wear collection which is set to launch in 2011, along with a fragrances and a jewellery line.
