Highlights of Paris fashion week

It is finally that time of the year!
The time for our favorite household names to unveil their creative geniuses in their extravagant Haute couture shows.
I present to you Paris’s Haute Couture spring/summer 2010 collections (actually I should have said MY favorite collections).

First up Valentino held on Jan. 27
Let's see...
Valentino's Haute Couture show, used to be well.. COUTURE and now it just looks like another ready to wear collection. Where is the extravaganza please! Thank God for Dior! (which I will discuss later).
but anyways with that said... I am not totally disappointed at Chiuri & Piccioli's work (the craftsmanship of the predominant chiffon was impeccable). I actually like the direction the line is taking, but it just doesn't feel like it is Valentino anymore.

Now it's Chanel's turn... and you all know that even if the Chanel collection was hideous I would still find it breathtaking.
But seriously when is Chanel ever hideous?
The show was held Jan. 26 and Uncle Karl opted for a very different palette this time.
Yep, that's right.. no more black or navy. The collection was silver and pastel in its entirety.

Last is Dior... and Galliano sure knows how to put a smile on my face.
He played with the theme of Equestrian Glamour and everything from the dresses, the models, the makeup, the hair & the music screamed Paris Fashion week on his Jan. 25 show.
