Busy time at work has meant that I haven't really kept up with the menswear shows from January or the most recent spring couture shows. However, when you're a Friday night homebody like I sometimes am after a long week, some hours open up.
I had a chance to get lost in style.com's Paris coverage, and as I expected, I was most enchanted by Elie Saab's collection of gowns and intricately-beaded dresses. The style.com critic was right draw similarities from Tom Ford's Oscar gown for Gwyneth and Valentino's previous collections as well, you can see them in a few looks.
My favorite looks (not surprisingly) featured a demure crew neck and t-shirt sleeve. I absolutely love the contrast of a "casual"shape with an elegant spin, like a ball skirt and glittering beading. Oh, and pockets? Fogheddaboutit - I'm sold.
