The first 6 looks are really awful, but it got better toward the end. IDK why, but I really love the hair & makeup. If it hadn't been for that, then I would have overlooked this.

I'm not a fan, actually. Looks like the most exciting parts of the whole collection are those crazy flowers and painted faces which seems a bit wrong.

i would like to know what exactly is haute couture in the half of this collection... other half looks way better but still a bit disappointing.

the painted faces and gigantic flowers on top look just so ridiculous and wrong. if the point was to make the collection look more haute couture and interesting it totally failed I'm afraid...

I liked the presence of the shiny fabrics and the 5th look seen at the start of the thread in that it evoked a peacock. I'm into shine, and peacocks, atm.

But the shiny looks weren't very well done. Shiny fabric close to the body is unforgiving and must be cut and fitted just so. And I'd have liked to have seen the peacock idea rendered in a floor length version.

Ultimately rather forgettable, the enduring image will be the silly green, brown, red, etc, faces. Which read just as empty whimsy.

The painted faces are not enough to distract from the boringness of the dresses...
