The venue for the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 presentation was stiflingly hot. It was turned up several notches when the first model took to the runway.
Alexandre presented 29 looks in varying shades of red including blood red, crimson red, scarlet red, fire-engine red, candy apple red, maroon and Burgundy.
The homage to M. Valentino showcased red as desire and sensuality signalling inner strength.
Model stormed the runway with perfect red pouts whilst wearing red Louboutin booties and pigalle pumps.
Their range of sexy looks included LRD (little red dresses), backless jumpsuits, billowing gowns with plunging necklines and double thigh-high splits, velvet tuxedos, luxe fur coats, chiffon halters, uber tight pants and seductive pencil dresses.
The designer, who is obsessed with accentuating the shoulders, added oversized butterfly wings, sculptural batwing sleeves and puffy oversized sleeves to cocktail dresses.
One long sleeved gown looked like a ball of flame as it glimmered with beaded details on the runway.
Only one gown of the 30 looks wasn’t red. That was the finale gown below.
The nude long sleeved gown had the most intricate Swarovski elements embroidered into the bold shoulders which also cascaded down onto the front and back of the gown.
