Passion For Haute Couture

I've always had a certain fascination with Paris Fashion Week and haute couture. Maybe it's because I idolized Anna Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada when she traveled to Paris for the big week and I'd watch that part of the movie with all of my attention... or maybe it's because of my love for all things stylish. Regardless of why, it still remains one of my favorite weeks of the year. With technology, I can watch live streams of the shows and have the best seat in the house, even though I'm half way around the world. I dream to someday able to see a PFW haute couture show for myself from the front row, not just through Vogue's View overview of the best of the week.
[here are some of my favorite looks from the week...]
The candid shot of models from the Valentino show is beautifully captured, and the elegance and style of the clothing is also reflected in it. Below that photo, the next two are from Christian Dior's show. The material of these dresses is stunning. The way it falls is simply gorgeous. And the purple color in the first Dior photo is magical; what a powerful color to showcase in a runway show.
 These for photos are from the Giambattista Valli show. I absolutely love not only the garments but the timing of the photos. Each one portrays an aspect of being backstage. The model in the first picture is heading out to the runway while a stylist is anxiously catching up to her probably to fix something. It's so real. In the next photo, a model is touching up her makeup and curling her eyelashes. I just think this photo has beautiful lighting and it's a typical backstage scene. The last two photos are just too colorful not to include! I mean, how could you not love these!? Pretty in pink has never been so true! Not to mention the flowing gowns and all of the amazing details.
Thanks to Vogue's View on, looking at Spring 2012 Couture has never been so easy. The photos are fabulous, the fashion is timeless, and it's almost like I saw each show in real life. Someday, Zoe. Someday.
Behind the scenes has never felt so real.
