Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 Couture

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.

Favourites: Finale gown, Ball of Flame gown and one-shoulder sequin jumpsuit with draped chiffon detail

Key accessories: Christian Louboutin shoes, Alexandre Vauthier clutches and ruby jewels

Who I Would Like To See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cameron Diaz, Dita von Teese, Blake Lively and Megan Fox

    shoes are nice but the clothes are a bit plain for a couture collection.

    Red Hot collection! Not so sure about the finale gown though.
    Are you taking these pictures? All the shots are amazing.

        Wow yes they are amazing but just wondering how hot is the venue and way.Can they not get air-con or fans?

          very hot. My dress stuck to me after this show yesterday.

          Some of these beautiful venues are thousands of years old, but they should still put those stand alone ACs in the room.

          But I think it would ruin the aesthetic’s

    I assume the shoes are Louboutin for Vauthier? J’adore!

    I am not really crazy about this collection. The color is great though.

    Perfect color for a boldly shaped collection – I see Lucy Lui (sp?) in the 6th look of the bottom grouping. Great photos!
