Yesterday I was wondering wheter Paris shows were going to bring something new and exiting that would have nothing todo with the 80´s vibe or if they were going to sum up to the nostalgia mood and so far is all about les années quatre vingt!!! but at least they are doing it in full force.

The dinasty era is back wheter we like it or not

Can't get rid of the notion that one of his legs is way shorter than the other, and that he is photoshopped into the picture.

I'm blaming PARIS HILTON for all this SH*T in paris... it's all stripper shoes the higher the better, clothes... the shinier, the sequinneder, the tighter, the better
I mean garish red satin tightly laced shoes??????

This is attention seeking dressing... look at me please, like at balmain too... the shorter, tighter, flashier... hopefully this is the apotheosis of this look... give me prada's understated wool shorts and wellies any day ... than this
I"M DESPERATE!! look... "I'm just not that into" it!

The shoes are just NO NO NO.

This is Paris. Why the **** am I seeing shoes that belong in the aisles in Chinatown?

I wrote in Balenciaga thread - completely different from what I expected... I don't even know what to say about it.
Even Lars Nilsson work for Ricci was better than this (and I thought his work wasn't bad).
However, I love the blue gown.

Holy Montana/Mugler!!!

MANY collections this season have referenced those two, on top of the fact that Mugler is doing Beyonce's tour costumes, I smell something in the air...

I actually really like it so far, something new and dramatic that teal strapless gown is gorgeous and that black sparkly gown on Tanya is amazing, and Im digging the crazy shoes.

Olivier Theyskens just presented what we hear was a stunning fall collection for Nina Ricci in Paris.
Quote:
And according to reviews of the collection trickling in from showgoers, Ricci designed with a fighting spirit, sending out a gorgeous, romance-infused, hard-rock-inspired collection.


i want to know who called this stunning...
