>> The Spring 2007 Givenchy haute couture collection is like opium for the eyes -- I just couldn't get enough. Very understated. Very mysterious. And my favorite -- very gothic. Even Riccardo Tisci's description of the inspiration -- "the metamorphosis of sailors into mermaids" -- is beautiful. The bustline of Flavia's black Elvira dress, the swaddling of Alyona in tulle and crepe, the attachment of Daiane's sunshine yellow train, and finally, Raquel Z.'s fantastic collared halter dress. You make me gush, Riccardo, you really do.
