2011 Fall Haute Couture…

Proof that fashion designers either need prescription drugs or are already taking too many:



Christian Lacroix:

The embroidery on this one is exquisite, but who really wants to look like a dead Russian bride?

John Galliano and Bill Gaytten for Christian Dior:

They wants to asphyxiate us all in cellophane.


…or maybe the Easter Bunny never visited them…

Fall 2011 Christian Dior Haute Couture Collection


I find them to be one of the least ridiculous of the design houses. They actually have some lovely designs, but they too feel the need to dip their toes into the avant guard nonsense.

…really??? A pinecone???

For totally avante guard check out this house:  “On Aura Tout Vu” Lady Gaga wears some of their designs…’nuff said!

Have to get me one of these…who wouldn’t want to be a futuristic, yet feminine, Viking???

Though there are many other design house offerings that I have looked at online, they are hardly worth mentioning. Some look as though they are designing for the female characters in Star Wars, most are just unimpressive. There are a few lovely pieces that will probably trickle down to the unsophisticated masses in the form of knock offs, but lets pray that the other garbage stays where it belongs…with the rich who have more money than sense. They can look down their snobby noses at us in a superior manner as we snicker behind our hands at their total lack of taste and style.

…just my two cents worth…

This totally cracked me up! A few of them remind me of Dr. Seuss characters. And it reminded me of the episode from I Love Lucy where they go to Paris, and Lucy and Ethel want a designer can guess the rest!
