More Couture

Now that I've shared my favourite show, here are looks from other shows that I loved. (Photos from style.com)

Alexis Mabille - I like this dress and think it's very pretty. It may not be the most fashion forward dress we saw at the couture shows, but it's still mighty cute.

Armani Prive - I love the shape of this dress. The decoration looks like a flower or a ride-along alien or something. The colour is gorgeous and there's a hat!

Chanel - I love the 1st black outfit. With the train and the jacket and the skirt, it's perfect! The 2nd outfit is pretty. It reminds me of something a couture witch would wear.

Elie Saab - I absolutely love this dress. Vlada looks like an angel in it and now I want to too!

John Paul Gaultier - I love both these looks, even though they are very different. I want that sequiny sailor top and the little sailor hat so bad. I would wear them the pieces. The other look I am completely in love with, but would probably never wear. But boy would I love it!

Valentino - This dress was by far my favourite from Valentino. If I were to imagine a dress based on the word mystery, I think this would be it.

I think the Alexis Mabille dress is cute too, but also because it was helped by the super lovely heels :D

Also, The Elie Saab one is divine!
