Lindsey Wixson Takes Over Spring 2011 Haute Couture

Lindsey Wixson Takes Over Spring 2011 Haute Couture

After walking countless Spring 2011 Ready-to-wear Fashion Week shows around the world, Lindsey Wixson took Spring 2011 Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week by storm as well. Walking one show everyday out of the total three days of Haute Couture, the 16 year old was definitely a star. You couldn't miss that signature pout under the heavy couture styling even if you tried.

This Haute Couture season, Lindsey Wixson walked Spring 2011 runways of Christian Dior, Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier.

In perfect storm of tackiness and vulgarity, Paris Hilton was photographed by Terry Richardson for the cover of this month's Vogue Turkey February 2011 issue, like it's 2005.

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2011 Haute Couture Is A Plethora Of Cultural References

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2011 Haute Couture Is A Plethora Of Cultural References

Jean Paul Gaultier paid a homage to the old days of Haute Couture by leaving out the obligatory soundtrack. With total quiet as a backdrop, the only sound you could hear as the models came and went on the runway was the voice of Catherine Deneuve reading out look descriptions written by Paquita Paquin.

Cabaret meets punk, you could say of Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection. But it was so much more. The collection was an eclectic mix of all things chic. True, all the models were styled with punk hair and cabaret-esque fishnet stockings. But then you also had some of them seductively holding a cigarette mouthpiece, so typical of the 20's.

In a mood for some Ethnic ...

Manolo Blahnik For Tous Turns Iconic Campari Mary Jane Into Gold

Manolo Blahnik teamed up with Rosa Tous to create jewelry in the shape of his most icon shoes. The two met at a luncheon in Madrid last year and chemistry was there from the start.

Roger Vivier’s Bruno Frisoni Designs New Limited-Edition ‘Rendez-Vous’ Accessories

Roger Vivier’s Bruno Frisoni Designs New Limited-Edition ‘Rendez-Vous’ Accessories

It was last year when Roger Vivier artistic director Bruno Frisoni decided to stop the label's couture line. "When I showed couture in January, I was thinking it was something that wasn’t me anymore. I thought the time had passed," he said at the time.

Bruno Frisoni maybe doesn't produce couture looks for Roger Vivier anymore, but he hasn't stopped creating. A new Roger Vivier limited-edition accessories line titled Rendez-Vous was born. Consisting of luxurious handmade shoes and clutches, Rendez-Vous items are produced in quantities of 10-20 of each. We are essentially talking about haute couture accessories here.

Meeting with Telegraph's Hilary Alexander, Frisoni explained that the new Rendez-Vous collection is about "Marlene Dietrich-meets-punk" - a sort of hard-edge sophistication.

Rendez-Vous will ...

Givenchy Spring 2011 Haute Couture Collection Channels Japanese Transformers

Givenchy Spring 2011 Haute Couture maybe only consists of ten looks, but each took thousands of hours of painstaking toil to complete. Despite the small size of the collection, Riccardo Tisci promises there will ever be only one of each, no duplicates. Each dress will be customized in accordance to the customer's wishes.

Ten looks. Never to be seen on the runway. As in the previous season, guests were invited to Hotel d'Evreux in the Place Vendôme for an intimate presentation. It was the only way one could truly appreciate the delicacy and intricacy of the details - yards upon yards of delicate fabric, thousands of sequins and hand-painted tulle.

Riccardo Tisci hired all Asian models for the presentation which can only ...

Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture Collection Is The Black Swan and Virgin Suicides All In One

Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture Collection Is The Black Swan and Virgin Suicides All In One

At first glance, looking at Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection, "cute," might slip off the tip of the tongue. It is as the show progresses, as one look revealed after another, that you understand the genius that is Karl Lagerfeld.

Short double-breasted trapeze suits and Jacky-O-neck coats slowly give way to etherial light-as-air skirts and dresses. With 67 looks in the collection, Lagerfeld brings the balance between constructed and frayed,fluid silhouettes to perfection. Frosty baby pinks, creams and blues, contrasting black and rather interestingly constructed flats make references to the ballet world evident. Rich in detail, every bead and sequin is in it's rightful place - a painstaking toil I'm sure.
