Haute Florals

When browsing through the photos that are just now spilling in from the Chanel, Christian Lacroix and Givenchy haute couture shows, I couldn't help but notice the floral influences. I'm relieved. My floral obsession can survive another season. Karl approves.



The vampy black dress on Lily Donaldson is just breathtaking. If I were a celebrity, this would be my first pick for Oscar season. I could see Eva Green looking fabulous in this. I also love the elaborate choker on the right paired with the soft blouse and skirt.



The other dresses in the collection reminded me of blooming lilies. There were even flowers all over the Givenchy runway!



Chanel debued some gorgeous floral headpieces made from paper. YES PAPER! They were made by Katsuya Kamo, a tokyo hairdresser who also does Junya Watanabe's shows.

The last time I tried to make an origami rose I was 14 and it didn't look nearly as nice as these babies. Now I have the strong desire to put paper flowers in my hair. I was barely even looking at the clothes.



Lastly, a punch of color as usual from Lacroix. I always love his choice of the most vibrant shades. The floral outfit in the center with the cropped jacket is a winner.
