Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring Summer 2013

This show was a bit all over the place. It started with some very beautiful chiffon dresses, but proceeded to turn into the usual Jean Paul Gaultier gong show: gypsy dresses, eighties shoulders, and a bunch of other random references. It wasn’t all bad, but I felt the confusion could have been toned down a bit, without losing Gaultier’s eclectic handwriting.

I love…

the way the stripes loosen on the bottom of this dress. And the earrings and bracelets really make this look.

a bizarre but cool cut out.

I loathe…

sheer harem pants.

when a couture outfit looks like it is made from fabric scraps.

the front drape of this dress. Eeek.

    Hope you are reviewing Valentino Haute Couture. Did I miss it? I really liked so much of it so I’m curious as to what you think. Unrelated side note: Has the new baby arrived?
