Paris Spring 2007 Couture

As the Academy Awards are just around the corner, big designers race to dress the ultra fabulous for one of the most prestigious nights of showbusiness. Intricate detailing, hand-painted silk gowns, designers debuted their haute couture lines in Paris a few days ago. Only a few fashion houses do couture as it is extremely expensive, and can be as long as six figures; the six houses so far are Christian Dior, Elie Saab, Givenchy, Chanel, Valentino and Christian Lacroix. Up soon is Armani Prive and Jean Paul Gaultier. Old fashion houses that have been running for generations and have built up a name as one of the best of haute couture.

Christian Dior
My favorite so far. I haven't seen all of them. (SO busy!!)
I think this collection speaks for itself. well done mr Galliano. (gosh it's so beautiful! i'm just in awe!)
