Stéphane Rolland Fall 2010 Couture

This was the second time I’ve attended a Stéphane Rolland Couture presentation, and so far it has been my favourite collection.

The couturier always produces amazing pieces I wish we’d see more of on the red carpet.

I loved the fluidity. Everything moved so freely and effortlessly.

The colour palette consisted of most black pieces, with grey, blue, gold and taupe pieces included.

Cocktail dresses, asymmetrical gowns, mermaid gowns, a caped jumpsuit, and dresses with an organza train and leather jacket style top half were presented to a packed crowd of fashion followers.

Some of these looks were worn with belts adorned with jeweled details, or embellished panels to add a touch of sparkle.

Legs were given a major role with mini dresses and rise and fall hems showing off opaque tights embroidered with gems.

It was the gowns I lusted over especially those mermaid gowns with storm clouds brewing on the hemlines.

The pieces with three-dimension ruffles were among my favourite looks in this collection.

The finale look was an ivory mini dress with a caped train, leather bejeweled long gloves and embellished tights.

It was sweet gentle finish to a dramatic presentation.

As you can see I have a much better camera than last season.

Armani Privé Fall 2010

I was very excited to attend the Armani Privé Fall 2010 presentation during Paris Couture Fashion Week yesterday.

It was just as romantic as I always thought it would be.

The models glided down the runway at a soft leisurely pace, which I prefer as you get to take in all the details.

The first thing I noticed by the time Karlie Kloss (Look 6) took to the runway, was that the models who weren’t blonde were wearing blonde wigs.

The show opened with classic Armani knee-length skirt and pant suits in many warm shades of nude, biscuit, caramel, camel, gold and chocolate which were all waist defining and exquisitely tailored.

Luxe camel coats draped over the shoulder, rich brown leather jackets, cocktail dresses with asymmetrical necklines and a selection of crocodile bags and clutches were presented.

By Look 29 I was in my element as the gowns were presented. Most were strapless varying from fitted to A line.

The embellished looks caught my eye as they dazzled under the amber lights. I think I held my breath the whole time Carmen Kass walked the runway in her soft nude sequined gown. She is a true goddess of the runway.

This would look great on Gwyneth Paltrow or Claire Danes who was in the front row.

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2010 Couture

Some of you have express that you are over bold shoulders, well Alexandre Vauthier isn’t and neither am I.

The shoulders weren’t as voluminous as the pieces in the Spring 2010 Couture collection, but they were very well defined especially by the moon-shaped piece worn by one model.

If ‘Wonder Women’ wore Couture, she’d wear this collection.

It was full of strong powerful statement pieces, which were dynamic, strong, confident, sexy and feminine all at the same time, plus it has her trademark gold touches.

The collection was dominated by black and white looks, but we also got pops of purple.

My favourite piece was the first black and white sleeve dress worn with long black gloves. You’ve got to wiggle in this dress.

I also loved the big bear sleeves on the white coat.

The designer favourited by Rihanna and Monica presented many pieces with very daring necklines.

How low did he go? To the belly button.

Jessica Stam closed the show wearing a gold sequin dress with spikey shoulders.

The models stormed the runway in black and gold Christian Louboutin spiked heels.

Georges Chakra Fall 2010 Couture

Georges Chakra’s Fall 2010 Couture presentation had the perfect mix of mini cocktail dresses, knee-length dress and jaw-dropping gowns.

His celebrity clients who want a piece of old hollywood glamour should look no further.

I loved the body-hugging metallic gowns which were bedazzled with sequins and rhinestones.

As well as gold metallics Chakra’s colour palette included rich plums, maroons and purples alongside black, shimmering aqua and white.

My favourite looks were those made of tulle.

One dress resembled a fan with a cute pink bow on the waist. Can you picture Carrie Underwood wearing this look?

Bows were a theme accenting the waist, hip, the hem and the back of dresses.

Whether you’re a Country singer, an actress, or someone who can afford these gowns, Chakra has produced a look for every woman.

Finale gowns are always eagerly anticipated at Couture shows.

Chakra didn’t let us down as he presented a bow accented wedding gown with laser cut detailing and a full tulle skirt.

Jessica Alba Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2010 Couture

Jessica Alba is currently on vacation in Paris, but took time out from sightseeing to take in the wonderful floral delights at the Christian Dior’s Fall 2010 Couture presentation yesterday.

The actress arrived looking lovely wearing a Christian Dior strapless dress which she paired with white open-toe Mary Jane pumps from the Resort 2011 collection.

Her beautiful floral dress was accented with a gold woven belt, which complemented her gold hooped earrings.

I’m not crazy about her hairstyle, but it goes well with the effortless nature of her look.

When Jess left the show, she was spotted wearing white Dior shades as she carried a Christian Dior Minaudiere metal box clutch.
