A gaggle of stylish celebs and fashion insiders have flocked to Paris for Spring '11 Couture Fashion Week — and a few of them were lucky enough to be invited to Vogue and Gucci's dinner party. Model Laetitia Casta and Carine Roitfeld both opted for long, black Gucci stunners. Laetitia's is one-shouldered with a high neck, while Carine's has a sexy cutout in the back. Both look fabulous in their looks, but who wins this battle?
Beginning in Paris today, Haute Couture Fashion Week kicked off with Christian Dior's Spring/Summer '11 collection. I wouldn't expect anything less than this kind of decadent sophistication from the design house, whose past collections have their roots of inspiration in florals, garden parties, and royalty. This time, the Spring/Summer looks offer John Galliano's whimsy in the form of pencil skirts, pleats, feather-embellished evening gowns, and vintage glamour. The color palette is rich with reds, greens, blues, and then pastel pink and yellow. It's fiercely feminine, as we'd expect, balancing outrageous volume with slim silhouettes; some is totally posh, more severe, then it softens — full of embellishment, oversize bows — to the all-out decadence of evening.
