Taylor Tomasi Hill: particularly loved her style during fashion weeks, always chic but in a different way from others.
Alexa Chung: pretty face and attitude (maybe a little bit too girly and romantic for me...)
Clemence, oh Clemence.... soooo naturally chic.
Omg, I'm having a realy girl-crush on Gaia Repossi... not that I find her particurarly beautiful but God, I'm so jealous of her wardrobe!!! Love her rings, the Celine military green bag matched with that shirt.
the Burberry blue coat I wish I could buy
I don't have a fondness for Olivia but I surely do have one for her Valentino ruffles jacket!!! Also, love all about the look of Bianca.
... is that an Equipment shirt??? gotcha!
Alexandra Golovanoff: surprising...
The Chloe girls (or better the Chloettes as Garance Dorè would say!): they all look amazing, can't choose!
AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES, LEOPARD PRINT WAS EVERYWHERE (ON SHIRTS, SCARFS, SHOES, BAGS) AND SO WAS CAMEL AND VALENTINO POINTED KITTENS. MINIMALISM WAS THE LEITMOTIV OF EVERY FASHION WEEK, SOMETIMES MIXED WITH A FLASH OF PRINTS OR COLOURS. RED WAS ANOTHER BIG STAPLE FOR THE SEASON.
SORRY FOR NOT POSTING ANY OUTFITS OF THE FRENCH VOGUETTES (NEITHER CARINE ROITFELD's OR EMMANUELLE ALT's) AS I USED TO BUT I FOUND THEM NOT PARTICULARLY INSPIRING THESE TIME.

I was expecting an amazing show from Maria Grazia Ciuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli since last autumn/winter collection and I wasn't disappointed. The duo has been designing for Valentino for 3 seasons (if I'm not wrong) and show by show they have rejuvenated the fashion house profile attracting more and more young women, while keeping Valentino's idea of a romantic (but not too much), well-dressed, feminine and chic woman. Here are my favourite looks of the show:
On the contrary I was very frustrated to see their evening dresses... really far from Valentino's magic :-(
I WAS LOOKING AT BALMAIN SS 11 COLLECTION FROM PARIS AND I GOT THIS GUT FEELING OF SOMETHING I’VE ALREADY SEEN SOMEWHERE AND THEN… OF COURSE, MY FEELING WAS COMING FROM ISABEL MARANT AW 10 CATWALK SHOW!!!
OBVIOUSLY IT IS NOT EXACTLY THE SAME THING BUT THE INSPIRATION SURELY COMES FROM THE SAME PLACE! BALMAIN IS ABSOLUTELY MORE EXTREME AND HAS ADDED A PUNK ROCK EDGE IN ALL HIS LOOKS AS CHRISTOPHE DECARNIN ALWAYS DOES BUT THEY PRETTY MUCH LOOK LIKE THE SAME TO ME. AND ALSO, NOT FORGETTING THAT ISABEL MARANT SHOW WAS FOR AUTUMN/WINTER WHILE BALMAIN’S IS FOR SPRING SUMMER, SO THERE SHOULD BE SOME DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AT LEAST BECAUSE SEASONS ARE DIFFERENT.
LOOK AT THESE OTHER PICS BELOW:
DO YOU STILL RECOGNISE WHOSE DESIGNER ARE THESE?
I’VE NEVER BEEN A HUGE FAN OF DECARNIN - I MUST ADMIT THAT - AND I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN I SAW HIS PREVIOUS COLLECTION – OH, SO OBVIOUS AND WITH LACK OF CREATIVITY – BUT NOW I REALLY THINK HE HAS SHOWN HIMSELF FOR WHO HE IS: NOT THE ACCLAIMED GENIOUS WITH EVERYONE AT HIS KNEES ANYMORE! HURRAH, JUSTICE HAS BEEN MADE NOW. BETTER LATE THAN NEVER… ;-)
