Tranquil Valentino: Valention's Haute Couture collection charmed women of all ages. From a teenager to a grandmother, Valention's collection had something for everyone. The collection was inspired by the good ol' Opera to describe the character of prominent protagonists. Valentino made use of silk, cashmere, lace and crepe fabric for tutu skirts and tulle gown's.
"This dreamy dress was made of 5000 meters of silver and gold threads and 1800 hours of craftsmanship" tweeted Valentino.
Jean Paul Gaultier: Jean Paul Gaultier's collection portrayed a theatrical extravaganza. "She's a butterfly in the day and a showgirl at night" said the press release. Colorful smokey eye's, tight hair buns, pleated silk drapes and oversize headpiece's ruled the show. It seemed as if the models were woven into those gorgeous butterfly outfits. The clothes were accessorized and enhanced as the models transformed from a butterfly to a showgirl. Jean Paul Gaultier infused his butterfly inspiration into sleek jackets, denim vests, fishtail skirt and silk gowns. Also, Dita Von Teese graced the ramp as a butterfly showgirl in a butterfly outfit paired with stockings.
Elie Saab: Don't we all wish to wear an Elie Saab at our wedding or as a bridesmaid? Well, I do. The lebanese designer stuck to the traditional crafting approach rather than going the quirky way. He was inspired by popular Dutch painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadem's painting of the Roman emperor Heliogabalus who tried to strangle his audience with rose petals. The color palette mainly comprised of soft pastel hues of nudes, pale blue's, yellow, coral and pink. In simple words, Elie Saab wove a dreamy fairy tale through his light and floral outfits.
