Seems like the all-white looks that we’re seeing are celebrities on & off the red carpets are going away in the fall, especially with a head-to-toe black line, as seen in my latest gallery for Viktor & Rolf‘s Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collection. Here we have a very minimalist approach, mixed with plenty of cloak shapes & dramatic structure. Of course it takes a daring fashionista to try one of these looks, but given the right occasion, I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of black in the future.
Perhaps the most sophisticated line to come out of Paris Fashion Week for the Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collections is from Giorgio Armani. Clad with sleek suits & strong shoulders straight out of Samantha Jones’ Sex & the Citywardrobe, but in softer creamy hues, there are also plenty of hints of The Great Gatsby‘s influence on fashion. Details like feathered necklines, crystal accents, ornate lace overlays, & lingerie-inspired silhouettes make this easily a red carpet favorite for the upcoming awards season. The feminine frocks are nothing short of elegant & edgy on the right girl.
While I’ve been clicking through gallery after gallery of the latest runway shots of the Fall 2013 Haute Couture season, I’ve found the crowning achievement in the latest Elie Saabcollection. Every single look featured in Paris is red carpet worthy, especially b/c of the stunning hues like scarlet, emerald, gold, silver, cobalt, & navy. These are sure to attract the likes of Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba, Amy Adams, Zoe Saldana, Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, & Emma Stone. The glitz & glamour is enhanced by flattering silhouettes including long-sleeves, sweetheart necklines, A-line skirts, & column gowns!
There’s lots to talk about when it comes to Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collections in Paris this week, especially Valentino‘s latest line. I love the mixture of tailored menswear, sweeping gowns, lace panels, intricate cut-outs, layered transparent looks, & brocade embellishments. I never thought I’d type those descriptions for one collection, but I was blown away by the understated elegance in this very forward-thinking line. The gowns towards the finale were especially spectacular for this fall’s awards season.
We’re in the middle of summer, but this is the perfect time to look ahead at what’s to come for fall, especially considering the latest slew of Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collections. After the 67-image gallery of Chanel‘s newest looks, I was so happy to find Giambattista Valli‘s line that includes lovely white looks with plenty of pops of blue & red, fun florals fit for young Hollywood starlets, exaggerated embellishments like flowers & fur, as well as see-through panels that are sure to hit the upcoming red carpets.
I’ve been biding my time with posts from the latest Resort 2014 Collections, while waiting to see the latest from the Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collections. I’m happy to start this gallery series off with Chanel. The line includes a smoldering combination of the label’s classic tweeds, statement belts, muted color palette, & gorgeous chunky outerwear essentials. There are plenty of fabulous looks here that will certainly hit upcoming red carpets on Chanel regulars like Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Rachel Bilson, & Elizabeth Olsen.
