Paris Haute Couture Shows Bring the Bling

The Fall/Winter 2011 Paris Haute Couture shows just wrapped in the city of lights, and – as we all know – where there is Haute Couture? There is bling. And wacky hats.

Here are some of my favorite looks from the event – most from Dior (sans their brilliant wretch, John Galliano) and Armani Prive (house of Oscar, royal weddings and all things Gaga).

Leprechan’s Rejoice! We’ve got a rainbow of oversized statement necklaces and cocktail rings to gawk at this go round!

I also spotted a return of the gold leaf silhouette at the stunning Giambattista Valli show.

(P.S. Guess who else is into gold leaf looks these days????)

 

And no Haute Couture Show would be complete without the chapeau showdown, right?

 

So there you have it, bling hounds. Colorful, oversized gems, yellow gold, leaf silhouettes and ‘hold-on-to your-hair-follicles’ headwear are the take-away trends from Paris.

Want the look? I’m thinkin’ Jewelry.com’s “Bijoux de Chloe” designer collection is the perfect expression of that sentiment – at prices that are frugalista fabulous! Here’s a few of their high-fashion looks for less, jewelry hounds. You like?

Lady Gaga Moonwalks the Grammys

Looks like Lady Gaga’s red carpet Grammy look took a cue from Giorgio Armani’s moon-inspired 2010 couture line this week in Paris – except for the small fact that Mr. Armani designed the frock especiialy for Gaga.

“I am honored to be wearing Armani this evening,” she said in a statement to Us. “The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic; they represent not only beautiful fashion, but my spirit and essence as an artist. Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team.”

Jewelry, well, is all a part of the dress but I’m keeping my eyes glued to the screen for costume jewels to match her duet partner – Elton John – during the show. Stay tuned!
