Zuhair Murad Spring 2014 Couture: Classic Petals and Mystical Garden

Thousands of floral appliqués, french laces, embroideries, golden leaves on your waist, see through tulle in pastel shades. Romantic and mystical walk through this sweet, fairytale garden. Soft and gentle hues, shimmers and crystals all adorn the beautiful pieces as models grace through the runway. So dreamy..




Chanel Couture Spring 2014 by Karl Lagerfeld

Crop top and short skirt paired with fancy couture sneakers by Massaro. Somehow I find it a bit disturbing... the idea of gorgeous, light dresses with pearls and embellishments on sneakers, no matter how couture the sneakers are. The boyish footwear seems to be too chunky... and although this can be interpreted as 'staying true to the Chanel's spirit of modern, liberalist feminine wear', it just.....doesn't feel right. But it's Karl anyway. He makes right whatever.

Atelier Versace Spring 2014 Couture Collection

Donatella Versace and the iconic hood - symbol of feminine power and grace. Fully embellished body-con silhouette with more fluid draping, and some sharp edges. Sexy and fierce. Strong, confident woman who's not afraid of expressing her feminine identity in this harsh world. That's the feel.

Roll that sexy pair of legs.




Valentino Spring 2013 Paris Couture

Creative inventions by designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino Spring 2014 Couture collection.





Christian Dior Spring 2014 Paris Couture Collection

Designed by Raf Simons for Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture, the whole collection is brought together under one theme: Lightness. The dresses feel airy (literally airy because of the fabric pattern) and there's a lot of movement. Embellishment is nowhere to be seen, no crystal no pearl whatsoever, just fabric and its lightness.

I don't think any of this is flattering for most woman's shape though. I don't like the intentionally used fabric with regular torn pattern, it's not feminine at all, and there's way too many horizontal lines on the bottom-part. Just a preference. Taste is very subjective issue :)




































Elie Saab Spring 2014 Paris Couture Collection

Pastel color, blush pink, hydrangea blue, and lilac. Classical dresses, soft, flowing, gentle draperies to create the Roman goddesses silhouette. Top that with Elie Saab's signature embroideries and appliqués. Romantic and so dreamy. 

Also the incredibly gorgeous flower-print gowns that shaded from black near the neckline to white at the hem, with countless colorful blooms in between. Breathtaking. I can't help but post everything in the runway.
