Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2012 Couture

Alexandre Vauthier is the man who puts the Haute into Haute Couture.

For his Fall 2012 Couture collection the designer served up a colour palette of mostly white and gold with touches of taupe in the mix, which included his signature sexy dresses, gowns and sharp jumpsuits.

If a look wasn’t gold it was dripping in gold with gold chains, gold Swarovski Elements or gold heels.

As always, he leaves very little to the imagination with hip-high slits, deep plunging necklines and ultra mini dresses with thigh-high slits, which are adored by the likes of Rihanna.

We saw many peplums for Fall 2012 ready-to-wear, so I wasn’t surprised to see this popular trend continue at Alexandre Vauthier.

One of my many favourite pieces was the gold laser-cut lace long-sleeve top with a plunging neckline paired with matching pants and matching Louboutins. I would love to see this on a brunette – Penelope Cruz, Cobie Smulders or Bérénice Marlohe would have me salivating if they hit the red carpet wearing this look.

The couturier and shoe maestro Christian Louboutin continue their working relationship as we saw an updated version of the popular ‘Bis Un Bout’ with white or gold toe-caps with a gold heel.

Boots with an asymmetrical slant and t-bar sandals also came courtesy of Monsieur Louboutin.

I believe JLo, Beyonce and Lady Gaga will be in a three-way fight for the final look; a gold bodysuit fully embellished with beads, rhinestone, glass fringes and Swarovksi Elements.

I hope Beyonce wins.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Kylie Minogue, Penelope Cruz, Jessie J, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Blake Lively and Bérénice Marlohe.

Alicia Keys In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys was the third celebrity, following Fergie and Katy Perry, to wear a Spring 2012 Couture look straight off the runway to the 2012 Grammy Awards this evening.

The singer donned an Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture fitted LBD with padded shoulders.

Her look was teamed with a bold statement choker and Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ pumps with PVC trims, which were presented during the Alexandre Vauthier show.

That ankle strap isn’t doing her any favours and they are making her legs appear really short.

A rockabilly hairstyle completed her look.

Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture

Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2012 Couture collection may have been on a softer colour palette of mint green, lavender and white, but it still projected his usual sexy, futuristic vision.

White fringed dresses, pastel chiffon gowns and draped tops over fitted pants slotted in-between LBDs with bold shoulders paired with PVC pants and black dresses with cut-out and thigh-high splits.

At first I was shocked that the models had protruding hip bones, but by the third look I realised that the hips had been deliberately exaggerated.

Fur accents in pastel colours to match the dresses adorned the models’ shoulders, whilst neckpieces encrusted with Swarovski Elements provided the perfect juxtaposition of soft fabrics.

Each model wore Christian Louboutin PVC heels with different colour top-caps.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Jessie J, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Blake Lively and Megan Fox

Lady GaGa In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Annie Leibovitz Photoshoot

Lady GaGa was spotted in another incredible look whilst shooting an editorial with Annie Leibovitz in Central Park on Monday.

This time GaGa was snapped in an Alexandre Vauthier couture dress, her second look from the designers’ Fall 2011 Couture collection.

Her fitted red dress with a central split and huge balloon sleeves was paired with ruby accessories including more towering platforms, leather gloves and red and black bug-eye sunglasses.

The singer completed her look with a top bun and scarlet lipstick.

It’s another typical show-stopping ensemble on GaGa and I think her platforms work much better with this look, rather than the red suit.

I am obsessed with those killer sunglasses.

Lady GaGa In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Atom Factory VMA Dinner

Sarah Jessica Parker wasn’t the only one wearing a red Fall 2011 Couture look this weekend.

Lady GaGa hosted the Atom Factory VMA Dinner in LA on Friday night wearing a red Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 Couture jumpsuit with a plunging neckline.

The eccentric singer opted to wear her ensemble with matching sky-high platforms.

I like the look, sans platforms, put I would’ve preferred the ruby necklace as worn by the model over GaGa’s silver statement.

GaGa clearly wanted to make her greater impact with her choice.

A supersized updo, Emmanuelle Khanh sunglasses and a red satin Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 Couture clutch complete her look.

Stay tuned for the MTV VMA coverage.
