Paris Fall 07 I

Before we get started I just want to say that I absolutely love Paris.
Everything is just so amazing. I realized that I life for Paris and for New York.
But now, the City of Lights awaits!

1. Balmain:

I love the disco vibe of this outfit (complete with bell bottoms!). At the same time, it's really glamorous and relaxed.

2. A.F. Vandevorst:

I love everything about the first look. It's the first time that I've ever thought a jumpsuit thing looks awesome and modern. It's even a little bit sexy! I wish I could wear this to my job interview tomorrow. The second look, well fashion police be damned, I never thought a big blanket could look so luxurious and fabulous. This was a great, great collection. London designers should take note that you can be avant-garde and experimental wihout sending costumes down the runway.

3. Viktor & Rolf:

This was such an amazingly wearable collection, a real step forward for them I think. I mean, we all know that they are incredibly smart and talented, but don't you just want to see what lies beneath the surface? How they think women should dress in real life, not the Viktor & Rolf reality. I chose the first look because I think that if they're going to use a schtick, then they should make it be relevant to what they're doing. This was just a cool idea and I was really thrilled to see such a gynormous dress. The second look was so polished and ladylike and I'm completely in love with it. I love the subtle draping on the shoulder and the stark contrast between the shiny skirt and the matte blouse. Those shoes however, make no sense at all.

4. Wunderkind:

This was another great collection (but aren't they all in Paris anyways?). That first look is SO Parisienne chic it's not even funny. I love the brown and military green together, yet somehow they don't look drab at all. Actually, wait, those are pants? Hmm... I don't know if I like it as much, but I'm just going to pretend it's a skirt and love it just the same. The dress is really weird, but there was something really charming and luxe about those Bedazzler-like details at the top. Almost like a Barbie doll dress. There's a very fine line between trashy and tongue-in-cheek and this dress walks it with confidence.
