Haute Couture is basically HIGH FASHION. I believe there are two runway fashions. Haute Couture and Ready To Wear. Ready to wear is the stuff you see Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie with on a daily basis, Haute Couture is stuff people wouldnt wear out. That EXTREME stuff.

Current official Haute Couture houses
  • Giorgio Armani Prive is also shown during the couture shows, but has not yet been officially designated as such. Source: Wikipedia... So that means whoever modeled for the likes of Chanel and Christian Dior are couture models? I was also wondering..Who designed the couture Nicoel Linkletter modeled in ELLE Magazine?

Haute Couture. Haute Couture is hardly EVER worn. Its simply the creators creativity with different fabrics.

Couture is just PLAIN fashion.

Makeupjunkie is right, there are no "special" models for couture. Couture models are the same models you would see during fashion week, except during couture fashion week.

The only difference is usually the shorter girls are left out of it minus Luca Gadjus who seems to do it more than the other short girls. The designs are much more elaborate and intricate, thus needing the height of the taller girls.

Design houses like Chanel and Christian Dior run both Haute Couture lines, and ready to wear lines.
Regular ready to wear Chanel is not the same as Haute Couture Chanel.

They are pretty much the same thing. Go to that thread- they discuss it there.
